Heather’s experience and deep insight with the tech startup culture is a huge asset to help guide Artject. Heather deeply cares about the projects and team she mentors. Heather always bring insightful perspective to each of our sessions. Heather is truly a unicorn because she is both a fan of art and technology.

Can’t say enough about Heather Wilde. In my opinion she is the best sort of consultant; one that assists you in making informed decisions quickly.

Alan Goya

Founder

Just by saying things out loud to [Heather], things come into focus.

Heather has been coaching me regularly for nearly a year now and her (mostly) gentle guidance has been invaluable. It may sound dramatic but I’m not sure we would still be around were it not for her help in steering away from implosion.

Heather listens patiently when I needed to vent, but always stops me when my train of thought has lead our conversation in unproductive directions. Sometimes she’ll call out potentially faulty assumptions , sometimes her role is as simple as reminding us that what we’re doing is supposed to be difficult. Coming from an industry veteran, that on it’s own can have a huge impact.

Although she has many skillsets, Heather has helped me enormously in developing my sense of leadership, accountability, organization, founder relationships, and those are just the ones I’m actively aware of.

Working with Heather is like having an older sister but one who never judges you.
she has taken a personal stake in our success and is someone I consider both a coach and a friend.

If you’re feeling lost, held back, or simply think you can be better, I would encourage you to reach out for at least a brief chat.

Heather is an unflappable mentor and keen collector of contacts and people. With a genuinely broad range of knowledge and interests, Heather can easily navigate from tech to classics, making her an invaluable resource for any company- small or large, tech or bricks. As an adviser and coach, she is quick to listen- and listen deeply- an invaluable quality, since most start-up founders (like me!) are so impassioned about their launch that communicating the entire value proposition in 10 minutes in a mad information dump is standard operating procedure. With a giant database of contacts, and a huge reservoir of knowledge, you could not get a better coach and mentor than Heather. I give her my highest recommendation

Many of my coaching clients prefer the flexibility of sessions over Zoom (video is optional.)

However, some clients prefer face-to-face -- and I am frequently flown around the world to facilitate workshops, strategy meetings, etc. Additionally, my home base of Las Vegas, NV makes it the perfect location for corporate offsite meetings, and I have facilitated that as well.

The most important aspect is that  whatever the medium, we are able to have a focused communication free of distractions. 
Please use this system to check my availability and schedule your interview, coaching or consulting appointment.  Your appointment will be confirmed by email and added to my calendar.  At the scheduled time, we will have a zoom meeting.

IMPORTANT: If we are unable to connect, please check your email for any updates.

(1) Please come to the meeting focused with a list of topics you want to cover.

(2) If you have anything you want me to review, please send it ahead of time, at least one day prior.  If you have a last minute request, I will review and respond to the document during our scheduled call.
Your time is important, so I will do my best to make sure our sessions begin and end on time. Please make sure you are on time and prepared as well..
