May We All BeFountainBlue’s Coaching and Consulting Services

FountainBlue supports the leadership and innovation needs for the tech companies and start-ups in the community by providing strategy and execution consulting services around markets, products and people. FountainBlue’s consulting and coaching focus is on the theme of ‘The People Side of the Next Normal‘.

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.


The Events We Run

FountainBlue also runs monthly events on innovation and leadership topics for tech executives, entrepreneurs and investors, including a monthly When She Speaks women in leadership series for leaders at all levels and genders (launched in May 2006), a VIP roundtable for senior executives (launched in December 2016) and a semi-monthly Front Line Managers Online series for managers and leaders at all levels (launched in May 2020). In response to the pandemic, starting March 2020, all FountainBlue programs will be held online, even after the shelter in place mandate is lifted, providing the opportunity to serve a larger and more global network of innovators and leaders.
