Our Founder, Karlene Millwood, started her career as a woman in tech, writing computer programs for one of the big five banks in Canada. Four years into her career, she stepped into her first leadership role as a Helpdesk supervisor, overseeing a team of technical professionals who supported five hundred traders and their back-office staff in another bank in the Financial District in Toronto, Canada. She used this position to hone her technical and managerial skills, and two years later, she transitioned into a project management role.
In this role, she was responsible for over 50 software implementation projects, ten server migration and implementation projects and numerous others. She leveraged these transferrable skills into different people and process management roles. She was bitten by the entrepreneurial bug in year 10 of her career and started carving out her own spaces in the organizations where she worked.
By the time she transitioned from the corporate world to full-time consulting, she had risen to the senior management level, been recognized for creating technical websites and repositories, and received awards for projects she spearheaded or worked on as part of a team.
After leaving Corporate Canada, she founded Karlene Millwood International Inc., a business consulting firm that specializes in:
Entrepreneurship and Leadership Training
Process Development and Re-engineering
Program and Curriculum Design and Management
Karlene also shares her knowledge as an Adjunct Professor of International Business Studies. The multi-faceted business leader also functions as a creative entrepreneur who founded Karlene Millwood Productions, where she manages and produces her creative projects.
Karlene is a visionary who thinks three steps ahead but is level-headed enough to live in the present and deliver results to her clients, ensuring they are receiving value for their money. Her purpose is to help individuals and organizations stay relevant by serving them with excellence and passion.
