About Mitch Shepard, Founder & Creative Force at WiRL
Mitch Shepard has over 20 years of experience in leadership development. She started out leading senior management teams on outdoor expeditions, to unite and push them past their perceived limitations. After starting a family, she traded in tents for boardrooms and created her own consulting business in 2001.
Now she’s navigating the wilderness of corporate America, helping leaders in businesses both big and small to build awareness, relationships, and achieve success together. Some of Mitch’s current clients include High Tech Companies (Amazon, Microsoft, Yahoo, and Intuit), Global Security, City & State organizations, and solo- preneurs. Mitch specializes in Emotional Intelligence and is known for her energy, humor and realism. She is a sought after speaker and executive coach who works with leaders and teams who want to achieve big results, amidst endlessly changing business goals and shifting team dynamics. She’s seen firsthand the unique challenges and opportunities that women face in the workplace today, as she has worked in and coached leaders in many male-dominated industries. She was inspired to create an online conference for those professional women, who seek growth, passion, and balance, without taking away valuable time from all they do.
