Robert Ellis

With almost 30 years of experience across global companies—spanning startups, mid-stage, Fortune 500 giants, and non-profits—I guide leaders to take their impact to the next level at any stage of growth. My proven strength in coaching entrepreneurs and CEOs to become better leaders, think more strategically, create high performing teams, foster future-friendly cultures, and deliver compelling presentations—including several high-profile IPO roadshows—has earned me praise from one client as “one of Silicon Valley’s best-kept secrets.”

Michèle Taipale

I am an ardent advocate for human potential, a catalyst for exceptional performance and passionate living, helping high achievers challenge themselves to take their careers and their companies to the next level.

William Hall

For over 30 years I’ve been teaching the transformative power of improvisational skills to create experiential learning that fundamentally changes the way a person sees themself in the world. I focus on being present for agility. Storytelling to make meaning, empathy, and vulnerability. Power dynamics for more resourceful leaders. Innovation (including Design Thinking) to bring out the best in teams.
