Launched in 2005, FountainBlue is a management consultancy which provides leadership and innovation coaching and advising for technology executives, entrepreneurs and investors.
We also run monthly events for tech executives, entrepreneurs and investors, including a monthly When She Speaks series (launched in May 2006), VIP roundtable (launched in December 2016) and a semi-month Front Line Managers Online series (launched in May 2020), all currently conducted online.

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.
