“Hello, this is Shardae.”
My natural strengths of managing budgets, schedules, relationships and deliverables are best leveraged as a leader of projects and programs. I’m guided by principles of transparency, equity and seeking knowledge as a lifelong endeavor. Proud to be a human-centered leader relying on data, experience and intuition. Setting clear expectations, ongoing communication and a willingness to come back to the table as conditions and relationships develop has served me well. The success of my family and my community is irrevocably intertwined with my own. I’m a future ancestor with a legacy to build.
I answer my calls with a greeting and a statement of my name, so that you know that you’re welcome in my proverbial place and you know exactly who you’re building with. Hello, this is Shardae.
For nearly 10 years I managed learning & development programs for medium to large corporations as an employee and consultant before pursing entrepreneurship full-time. My background in managing programs, projects and people partnered with my technical expertise earned me the opportunity to own learning assets, content and learning management systems, customer relationship management systems and corporate communications, policies and procedures on a global scale.
Previous employers & clients include Allstate, Lowe’s Home Improvement, Lenovo, AICPA, Philips Lighting, Blue Cross NC and more. See more about my professional recommendations on LinkedIn.
