She started her first company ( because she saw a need in her business community. She attended local networking events and thought they were DREADFUL. So she started her own.

Esther Derby

I’m an expert in organizational dynamics and a leading thinker in bringing agility to organizations, management, and teams.

I started my career as a programmer, and over the years I’ve worn many hats, including business owner, internal consultant and manager. From all these perspectives, one thing became clear: our level of individual, team and company success was deeply impacted by our work environment and organizational dynamics. As a result, I have spent the last twenty-five years helping companies evolve their environment, culture, and human dynamics for optimum success.
