Companies Impacted by Anna’s Leadership
I’m Anna Taylor.
To know me is to love me.
As a seasoned communication leader, I have a knack for taking complex or technical concepts and translating them into everyday language and stories that reach and resonate with people. My expertise ranges from planning and executing global marketing campaigns to creating innovative campaigns for diverse audiences.
I have an innate desire to learn and continuously improve personally and professionally. The appetite to stay curious, ask questions, and seek challenges has served many well, as there is a science to problem-solving that doesn’t involve knowing the subject matter but instead asking the right questions and getting teams to think differently.
The infectious energy I bring to workshops or speaking events, coupled with real-life industry experiences, connect with a wide range of audiences and bring people in. I take tremendous pride in leveraging my experience and being authentically me to motivate people and drive organizations forward. My life experiences—from overcoming economic challenges like homelessness or navigating through unconsciously biased corporate systems—make me uniquely qualified to personify the resilience people aspire to have.
My experience fuels my passion for creating diverse, equitable, and inclusive spaces where people thrive.
On a personal note, I am a dance mom (she will be the first professional astrophysicist dancer, her words, not mine 😊), I love to travel and become immersed in different cultures and enjoying the local coffee.
I look forward to connecting and making an impact together!

Where Anna Excels
Strategic Comms + Planning
Purposeful planning and use of comms—centering the audience—ensures the right inclusive message, medium, and timing is deployed to achieve measurable goals, objectives, and shared understanding.
Powerful storytelling engages, conveys information, and builds emotional connections between the audience and the messenger.
Creative Problem Solving
Curious and human-centered approach to addressing complex issues or improving processes that involve empathy, creativity, and experimentation to get to the root of the problem without judgment periods.
Interactive Training and Facilitation

I am in the business of ‘enriching’ businesses. I partner with companies to elevate their communications, expand their thinking, embrace diverse cultures, and empower their people… but I only do it by being authentically me.
