Meet Our Founder

I'm Natalie Roberts, a passionate woman business owner, widow, and believer that the limits we face are usually self-imposed.

For three decades I've worked as a Global M&A Executive and Strategy Leader in mergers and acquisitions, talent acquisition, and business consulting at places like E&Y (20+ Years), HP (eight years) & Pearson. Now, I bring this experience to every transformation for my clients.

More than an executive who will partner with you to get a deal done, I am passionate about helping women business owners navigate the complicated process of business transitions. Serious. Honest. Kind but straightforward. My work is transformational.
