Rachel and Suzanne have built careers as leading strategists who focus on ensuring that ideas that matter…matter more. Their client list includes Nobel Laureates, iconic athletes, billionaire investors, well-known policy leaders, Fortune 100 companies and entrepreneurial non-profits. Their hard-hitting style is more “insultant” than “consultant,” and they’ve successfully banked on their conviction that people are hungry for the unvarnished truth, delivered in a way that people can absorb and apply to their lives, while not taking themselves too seriously.
Rachel is a serial fire-starter. She’s been a founder of eight different enterprises in Chicago and in New York City. She’s raised money for her own ideas, invested in others and advises clients on what it takes to get their big ideas off the ground. Her most recent venture with Suzanne is Bonfire, a talent development accelerator for the rising generation of women in the workforce. Rachel’s current passion is understanding the role of influence in the future of social change. She has become an expert on the subject through her many attempts over the years to influence Suzanne to…change. To learn more about Rachel, click here.
Suzanne can’t stop running things. In addition to 10 marathons, she’s run four successful companies, and they all focus on finding the smartest, fastest way to get big ideas positioned for the markets they deserve. Her latest “matter more” venture with Rachel, Bonfire, is a talent development accelerator for the rising generation of women in the workforce. A Clinical Professor at Kellogg, Suzanne also mentors Chicago entrepreneurs at 1871, Impact Engine and TechStars. She tries to mentor Rachel but that’s a lifelong project.
