Facilitating innovation and leadership for tech leaders one conversation, one leader, one organization at a time is my passion, my mission, my cause through my work at FountainBlue. We take pride in bringing together innovators and leaders in the online events we conduct, the executive coaching we provide, the leadership consulting we practice, the strategic advising we provide.  – Linda Holroyd, Founder and CEO, FountainBlue

Launched in 2005, FountainBlue is a change management consultancy which provides executive coaching, leadership consulting, and strategic advisory services to people and business leaders facing operational, process, and cultural opportunities and challenges caused by rapidly shifting market, business and technology challenges and opportunities. 

The ‘Fountain’ in our name represents the innovation edge which keeps companies relevant and the ‘Blue’ in our name represents the leadership needed to bring innovations to the market and to the customer. Bringing the two sides together becomes much more important as we move from an Age of Information to an Age of Personalization – One Conversation, One Leader, One Organization at a Time.
