We are excited to announce a new partnership with Laura Thorne of Laura Thorne Consulting. Laura has joined the organization as an official partner consultant. In her role, Laura will help with MACNY’s expansion of workshops and coaching, consulting directly with MACNY members, and supporting the creation of on-demand online courses. Laura will deliver high-quality actionable training, coaching, and strategy services to help members perform better, improve culture, and make more impactful decisions.

Laura has been managing and leading programs in various industries for over 25 years. She has a background in environmental science, programming, and business excellence. Her services include engaging workshops, coaching, strategic facilitation, and organizational performance evaluations. She uses a framework and approach to leadership she created, called The Role Model Way™, as the basis of her consulting. She also has a passion for mentorship and designing mentor programs. That said, she enjoys coaching people from all levels about career navigation and leadership development. Clients of Laura’s accomplish goals that have been eluding them, improve their relationships, devise creative solutions to problems, and become role models in their respective positions.
