Nicole Provonchee, Founder
Meet Nicole Provonchee
Nicole Provonchee is a certified Executive Coach and business strategist with over 20 years of management and executive-level experience across a range of industries.
She founded Bright Blue Consulting on the idea that companies, organizations, and associations are stronger when they have diverse ideas and perspectives at the table. With that in mind, she is passionate about helping women get out of their own way so they can become even more successful in their careers and lives.
Nicole believes that women have the drive, desire, skills, and abilities to lead. And, while there have been significant advances to support women in the workplace over the past few decades, there are unique challenges that women continue to face. She provides organizations with
programs and coaching methods that empower women to self-advocate, move through their unique challenges and find more balance in life and work.
While her focus is on supporting women, she works with existing and emerging female, male and non-binary leaders, their teams, and the companies that employ them, to seize opportunities, overcome obstacles, and achieve impactful results.
As a frequent speaker on topics ranging from managing up, confronting career limiting behaviors, the art of negotiation, work/life balance, and more, Nicole combines research, real-world experience, humor, and pragmatism to ensure attendees leave both entertained and informed - with tangible information they can implement immediately.
"Nicole is not only an amazing executive coach, but someone that you can trust because she is so personable and genuine ... Not only was this the best 10 months learning and growing because of her candid and succinct feedback, but she provided so many tools and tactics that will become lifelong resources."
