Hello! I am Ellen Cleary and I’m a principal advisor with Advancing Global EDU, a firm that specializes in helping businesses move along the strategic marketing continuum from idea conception to feet-on-the-street sales. We focus on the education vertical (preK-graduate school) and our clients go from mom-and-pop shops to global corporations. And in case you’re wondering, our hottest talk tracks these days are: e-learning, equity, STE(AM), AR/VR, professional development, and social-emotional issues facing today’s students. I’m on board with all these things. It’s a crazy time of change in education, and of course instability means work for consultants.

I’m a big believer in keeping the messaging and the tools simple, direct, and consistent. I work almost exclusively from a single laminated sheet of paper when I talk to prospective clients. I’ve mentored women in particular my entire career, including starting the Chicago chapter of McGraw-Hill’s Women’s Networking organization (WINS). I’ve always taken a long view on networking and investing in others, and it has paid me dividends beyond my wildest dreams.
