Dr. Natalie is a T-Executive

What’s unique about Dr. Natalie is that she has sat in just about every seat in the house. What this means is that she has been an employee/executive in a company, she’s worked as a management consultant advising businesses, she’s been a leading industry analyst and she’s worked in many customer-facing capacities, including Customer Service, Marketing, PR, Manufacturing, Engineering, etc… T-executives have strong cross-functional expertise as well as deep functional, vertical knowledge. That deep knowledge and understanding is what eliminates the disasters that unformed decisions can have on other departments.

Key to Getting it Right?

Start with the End In Mind, Collaborate Across Functional Departments

With this diverse set of experiences, Dr. Natalie is able to provide business guidance that makes sense for the whole company, not just one functional department. Often times advisory guidance is provided, but with a skewed point of view. We’ve seen this in the discussion around who should lead social customer interactions. Everyone thinks their department should. Few have sat in the chair of Customer Service Directors, Brand Managers, CMOs, PR Directors to know the impact of what one decision may make on many other departments.

Corporate Insight

Enterprise feedback is critical to staying alive and surviving in this new social networked world. Dr. Natalie brings with her diverse background data founded in practical research. She uses social media monitoring to understand what clients customer’s are saying about them and providing that insight into what customers/employee think and want from them.

Assessments and Analysis Best Practices Programs

Dr. Natalie has spent 15 years designing, for dozens of companies, “As Is”, “Could Be” and Gap Analysis programs that help companies determine where they are, where they need to be going and how to do more of the right things to stay competitive. This is especially important in social media. Social Media can seem like a haphazard black hole in the wall that you are throwing money into. But with the right understanding and guidance, your company can begin to realize the benefits of what social media and digital communications can bring to life. By using assessments, questionnaires and return on investment business models for social media, Dr. Natalie can help you and your business know where you are on the social media continuum, to do more of the right things, to get a higher return on investment and win the hearts and minds of the executive suite as well as the board of directors.
