Liz Cornish
Transition Expert, Author, Keynote Speaker, Coach,
Expert in Women’s Issues and Change

Speaker Liz Cornish, leadership transition expert, adventure enthusiast and hard-working mom, seizes lessons from settings as varied as the boardroom, the soccer field and the Arctic Circle. She explores the dos and don’ts of effective leadership by spinning hard-won wisdom into exciting and compelling story telling.

Liz is the leading expert in coaching women - from new supervisors though executive levels - to manage transitions, achieve their goals and sustain top performance.  Her McGraw Hill leadership book, Hit the Ground Running: a Woman’s Guide to Success for the First 100 Days on the Job is the product of over 300 executive interviews, 25 years experience in the leadership field and thousands of research hours.  Packed with hard-won wisdom and no-nonsense advice, Hit the Ground Running provides a blueprint for organizing priorities, getting a handle on the tasks and applying proven management/leadership techniques. 

As a consultant, Liz Cornish specializes in guiding individuals and groups to take advantage of change, such as new leadership challenges, business initiatives, start-up projects, teams and planning.  She excels working with leaders as they leverage relationships, deliver results, inspire confidence, jumpstart teams and manage the push for action against the pull to make thoughtful, informed decisions.  For a client list, click here.

Her varied background includes many years and miles as an international outdoor adventure educator.  She has led executives up Mt Kilimanjaro, was the first woman to kayak the powerful Zambezi River in Africa, soloed above the Arctic Circle, and ran the 100th Boston Marathon.  She recently “grimly acknowledged” her birthday by participating in the Escape from the Rock Triathlon – starting with a frigid swim from the famous Alcatraz Island in San Francisco Bay.
