Julie Couret is a dynamo! I had the pleasure of meeting Julie when I first arrived in New Orleans at a Chamber of Commerce event. Since our initial meeting Julie has been an indispensable asset to the New Orleans Baby Cakes Baseball Club as a member of our Advisory Council. She has assisted the organization through a significant rebranding project by offering her insight into the local culture, both business and social of the Greater New Orleans Region. She is an exceptional business person, a leader, a mentor with years of experience that can help take your cause or business to greater heights. I strongly recommend working with Julie Couret, in either the local or global marketplace.

You know when Julie is in the room. Every meeting is energized with her enthusiasm. She is the catalyst to defining goals and assigning accountability. As an executive coach she cuts through the noise and gets to the decision. Her talents are what the doctor ordered.

In a time where everyone is a “consultant” Julie is the real deal, who has this knack to quickly and accurately understand her client’s unique culture and circumstances.
Julie rolls up her sleeves and gets dirty with us. And she delivers.
