My consulting timelines range from 1 day trainings to 6 months of in depth work. I like to make sure there's enough time to make a meaningful impact with enough takeaways for the team to run with on their own. And if necessary, I love to use my network to help companies hire someone full time to carry on with strategy / execution.
The core of my freelance work revolves around community building and customer experience strategy (sometimes execution) for product-driven tech companies.
Types of projects I've worked on:
Because of my experience in several startups, I also do some dabbling and enjoy (in case you couldn't tell by the Trish of All Trades part) working on projects around professional development, career coaching, customer support & success, employee experience, and implementation of tools (Zendesk, Tettra, and Salesforce to be specific). I also do some on-camera video work (recorded over 15,000 short videos for one of my first startups) and voiceovers.
You can check out my recommendations section on LinkedIn to hear more about what I've done / what it's like to work with me, but here are a few excerpts:

"Trish spoke at CMX Summit 2017 and was one of our highest rated speakers. She brings an incredible and relatable energy to the stage. Her talk was a balance of storytelling and specific tactics that attendees could put into action immediately following the event. She's a natural presenter with a lot of professional experience building communities. I'd highly recommend her for any conference." - CMX Summit
"She not only provided an honest and humble assessment of her own work and lesson’s learned, but also was able to bring them together in a framework and story that circled back to some really key takeaways for attendees to use in their own journeys. The attendee group was a mix of seasoned insights, CX and analytics practitioners that from a variety of industries and ranged from startups to larger Fortune 500 companies. It’s not the easiest crowd to speak to and connect with such diversity in industry and company size, but she was able to bring great energy to the room lead a really valuable discussion. Attendee’s post-session comments praised her insights, her delivery and eagerness to apply her lesson’s learned to their own setting." - JPK Group’s 2017 Organizational Intelligence & Customer Analytics Summit
"When organizing an event with speakers you look for those with energy, message, and a great delivery. You don't expect superpowers, pie humor, and a message that sculpts the direction of a weekend event and beyond. Trish's message and philosophy are now a part of us all and we have attendees that still talk about her a year later. She brings her A-game and then some." - 2016 3E Nantucket Conference
