Ann Marie is one of our business consultants and primarily focuses on brand strategy. She is a believer in continual learning, personal initiative, and the limitlessness of human potential. As a result, she digs deep into what makes business work, dividing it into four key components: people, strategy, execution, and cash.

Business consultants who focus on brand development and neuromarketing give leaders the power to grow their business.

Ann Marie uses market research and has an understanding of why people do what they do. The combination of these is what makes growth sustainable.

In addition to her 21 years of experience, she has worked with NBC, the University of Missouri, MFA Oil, and Enginuity Worldwide. Ann Marie is a Brand Strategist and a member of Gazelles International. She also serves as a board member of the Missouri Energy Initiative and the Central Missouri Humane Society.
