Amy Lynn Calfee, Chief Listening OfficerAmy Calfee, CLO

Why “chief listening officer,” you ask? Here’s my take on it. Listening is the most important part of starting and keeping any relationship. Listening leads to conversations that lead to understanding where ideas can grow, connections are made, opportunities are recognized, problems are solved and customers are created.

Entrepreneurs, business owners, and organization leaders work with me to do one thing: create customers. By blending both classic forms of analysis and modern strategy, I guide them through a goal-driven framework of better questions to make more confident decisions about business growth. Together, we design a road map of business improvements, brand clarity, marketing strategies and tactical methods that lead to greater marketing effectiveness. The result is a customer creation system that is manageable, measurable and scalable.

Others have recognized the impact of this work. The U.S. Small Business Administration named me one of the first Home-based Business Advocates of the Year. I’ve earned awards of merit from national associations, produced trademarks and developed patented product concepts while working with individuals and teams.

Sharing knowledge fuels creativity and idea generation. You can find me “talking shop” online and in person as a conference speaker, workshop presenter and panelist. Ask me about tailoring a presentation or workshop for your team, business group or association.

What’s your business goal? Are you ready to reach it?
