Nina is a guide in the art of corporate wayfinding, helping companies find their best path to success. She serves as a:
  • Confidential advisor on strategy and marketing
  • Corporate director
  • Leader of customer executive meetings
She is primarily focused on the emerging technologies that businesses and institutions can harness to achieve their strategic objectives. A great believer in beach-combing on the shores of others’ wisdom, she has spent more than 10,000 hours over the past 25 years interviewing leading-edge technology implementers in business, governments and institutions.
She received her MBA from MIT, where she was first touched by the magic of technology. Her experiences at the Alfred P. Sloan School of Management inspired her to adopt her motto for difficult times:
“Given that it’s impossible, you have to find a way to make it easy.”
She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from Princeton University, where she wrote her senior thesis on Carrying Capacity Rights as a means of overcoming market externalities such as pollution. She is passionately committed to reducing, reusing and recycling.
