Using a mix of frank talk and good humor, Cynthia is known for delivering the hardest of news in the nicest of ways. She’s been the biggest fan in the corners of organizations such as Dell, Dun & Bradstreet, The Methodist Hospital, Digital Realty, Milk and Honey Spas, Cintra US, Enspire Learning, Abilitie, Planar Systems, Lutheran Social Services (now Upbring), and has helped over 800 executives achieve a winning balance of power and likeability.
Working in the high-tech environment since 1993 is enough to make anyone understand the need for better communication. In 1999, she led the Large Corporate Accounts division to meet Dell’s corporate goal of moving 50% of their business online – one year early. And she did it by persuading Dell’s sales force and corporate customers of the benefits of the e-tool. After her experience helping customers integrate Dell’s online suite of B2B products into their processes, Cynthia became a professional speaker for Dell. She spoke to CEO/CIO/CTOs from Fortune 500 companies like: Pitney Bowes, Honeywell, Perot Systems, Sony, Enron, Microsoft, GE Capital, First Data Corp. on “How Dell Drove Their Business to E”.
Since then, Cynthia has used research in persuasion and compliance-gaining to help over 800 (and counting!) executives become top-notch leaders. In addition, she combines her work in theater and business to help people polish both their interpersonal and public speaking skills. Cynthia holds a Master’s degree in Interpersonal Communication from U.T. where she researched sales anxiety and persuasion. She has also taught communication at St. Edward’s and LeTourneau Universities. On weekends, she performs with award-winning Girls Girls Girls Improvised Broadway Musicals in Austin, Texas. That’s improv, y’all.
