Strategy is about the people who execute it, people who need to be informed, equipped and guided to fulfill that strategic vision. Sometimes the communications and the leadership are clear and supportive and sometimes they’re not.
Mottspoint believes in harnessing the twin forces of communications and governance to help companies realize their full potential. Our strategic consulting services center on communications and governance from unified stakeholder messaging to implementing board governance structures and practices that maximize the value of your board’s talent pool. These key strategic areas are often overlooked and underutilized; and yet play a key role in unifying your team and leadership to execute on plan.
Founder Jennifer Thayer is our lead consultant. She imparts insight gleaned from her extensive experience, ranging from corporate boardrooms, to the lean startups bringing new products and ideas to market, to the angel investors who fund those startups. Her unique brand of creative consulting offers a shot in the arm and a nudge in the back to companies finding their way down the growth path.
As a former executive at Cablevision, Jennifer understands how even the largest companies can sink or swim on communications and leadership. As a former managing director of Goldenseeds, the fourth largest angel investor network in the US, Jennifer knows which funding and exit strategies work—and which ones don’t and how a good board can help achieve it all.
Jennifer is actively engaged in several tech-centric ventures, supplementing her experience with up-to-the-minute knowledge. She sits on the advisory boards of Collective HR Solutions, a consultancy focused on HR management systems and technologies; and the New York Institute of Technology School of Computing and Engineering; and advises The River Newsroom, a digital journalism project.
Simply having a strategic plan isn’t enough: you have to use the tools at your disposal to execute it. Mottspoint helps companies work better, think deeper, and achieve more with concise communications and engaged leadership together with the insight to twine the two together.
