marcus osborne testimonial for business growth strategist

“I had the great pleasure to work with Anniedi over a number of years as she helped drive a strategic exercise to assess opportunities in healthcare at Walmart. Her leadership was critical in bringing the broader teams together around the vision – from her ability to share from her own experience to the enthusiasm and creativity she brought to the effort. The team benefited immensely from her project management and learned extensively from her, which enabled us to drive many of these opportunities to a successful conclusion.”
