<— Back to The PrōKo Team
Liz founded PrōKo Consulting in April 2009 based on workplace trends and her own consulting experiences, particularly the challenges of being an independent consultant working with Fortune 500 clients. The idea of PrōKo’s unique business model was planted when Liz helped a client to implement a vendor compliance system and process with a contingent workforce management company. (“Parachuted behind enemy lines” is how Liz tells the story.)
Over the last 20 years Liz has worked as an external consultant with a global “big four” consulting firm, as a member of a boutique consulting firm, as an internal consultant, and as an independent consultant. She has personally consulted with nearly all aspects of a business including marketing, IT, procurement, sales operations, HR, finance and accounting.
Prior to launching PrōKo, Liz was an independent consultant for over ten years working on a variety of projects for Fortune 500 companies such as Franklin Templeton Investments, NetApp, Clorox, Invisalign and Kyphon/Medtronic. Before that she was with Intuit, Levi Strauss & Co, and PwC Consulting specializing in organizational development and leading large-scale change programs. She has both a Bachelor’s degree and an MBA from the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California.
Born and raised in Southern California, Liz now lives in San Francisco with her teenage daughter, two cats and an 8-year-old goldfish. When not working she enjoys travelling, golfing, skiing, flying and riding her red Ducati motorcycle. Twice a month she publishes tips and advice on her blog, Successful Independent Consulting .
