Cecilia Gorman is on a mission to help leaders drive their careers forward and reach their true potential. Through speaking, workshops, and coaching, she empowers people to open their minds to new ways of being in a relationship with their actions, their results, and their careers. Her energetic personality, 20+ year journey as an advertising pro (in Human Resources, Recruiting, Creative, and Production), and an infectious sense of humor means she is well received by those who crave authenticity, relevancy, and little bit of laughter. Cecilia’s love for teaching and coaching others started early. She’s been involved in mentoring, coaching and training others since her first years working in advertising.
