Vicki Cotter,
Managing Director

Vicki is a seasoned and passionate champion for the development of people and their organizations. As a leader, coach and facilitator, Vicki has designed and driven organizational change in multinationals as well as non-profits, and has coached, trained, facilitated and developed leaders and their teams in the U.S., Europe and Asia. Vicki is known for her business skills and ability to see the big picture.

Vicki approaches her work by building strong relationships and getting to know her clients. With that solid foundation, she is able to integrate strategy, people and process in a way that results in engaged people and exceptional business results.

Vicki is skilled at and loves helping her clients see possibilities they hadn’t yet imagined and is equally happy when working with a team to untangle a complex business challenge. Whether she is in the front of the room leading a workshop or in the back of the room supporting a strategic dialogue, Vicki brings a multi-dimensional perspective that instigates both immediate and sustainable growth for the people and organizations she serves.

Prior to joining BRANDspeak, Vicki built on her more than 25 years leading HR organizations in banking, healthcare, consumer electronics and manufacturing and founded Keep it Simple, LLC, a boutique consulting firm focused on sustainable organizations change.

Vicki’s spare time is spent doing more of what she loves. She teaches Organizational Behavior at the University of Delaware’s Lerner Business School, Chairs the Board of Goodwill of Delaware and Delaware County, and is on the Governance Committee of The Fund for Women, Delaware. When she needs to disconnect, she spends her time where she can be close to the water in her home on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
