FountainBlue LLC


FountainBlue LLC is a change management consultancy which has provided executive coaching, leadership consulting, and strategic advisory services to business leaders facing operational, process, and cultural opportunities and challenges since January 2005. We also run monthly events on leadership and innovation topics and custom workshops tailored to the individual needs of our client companies.

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. 

As founder and CEO of FountainBlue LLC, serial entrepreneur Linda Holroyd oversees all event production, coaching, consulting and advisory work, ensuring that we consistently and proactively emphasize empowerment and growth at the individual, team and organizational levels as we work with client companies to manage change.
