Get a career check-up

If you’re not sure you want or have time for on-going coaching, consider a Career Check Up. This is a completely customized, one-on-one, 90-minute consultation. You can do it all at once, or, as many clients prefer, spread it out over two or three, separate 45 or 30 minute sessions.

Career Check Ups can help you address a specific issue (like negotiating a new contract or winning over a new boss or integrating your work and your life). Or we can have a broader discussion about your best strategies for career advancement over the next 3-5 years. It’s your time so we’ll focus on whatever you want. Every consultation is personal, professional and confidential. ($300)

What people are saying about Perry's work

Just one hour on the phone with Perry gave me more actionable insights and inspiration than I'd received through years with other coaches. It's her straight forward, "been there, done-that" approach, paired with her unmistakable combination of intellect and spot-on instinct that sets her apart. She gave me clear strategies for what to do next, reinforced my thinking and boosted my confidence - all in an hour. I truly feel lucky to have met her. She's one awesome, savvy business woman. Hire

I’ve known Perry for decades and can say without hesitation there is no one better suited to help guide ambitious professionals. Whenever I need advice on how to handle a particularly vexing professional or personal situation, I look to Perry.  She is always spot on, whether sharing concrete examples of similar situations or just prodding me to think in new ways. There are few people with her level of success who share their knowledge so expertly and perceptively. Add her flawless moral and ethical compass and you’ve got a winner on your team.

Perry was my boss earlier in my career. She was also an important mentor and coach. Many years and several jobs later, she remains my go-to person when I need smart, sound professional guidance. The lessons she taught me still resonate (in fact, I quoted one of them today). Whatever career challenges you face, Perry has been there, done that.  I would highly recommend her to anyone thinking about what’s next in their journey.

Perry’s international and domestic experience gives her a unique perspective on how to succeed in a globalized world. Perry applies a comprehensive approach to her coaching, taking into account a mentee's personal and professional life, thereby building a foundation for long-term, life-long success independent of sectors or industries.

Perry offers critical insight and perspective that is both inspirational and thought-provoking. She can help you define and refine your vision and goals. With her innate ability to guide and coach, you will reach your full potential.

"Your Career, Your Terms" is a natural progression for Perry. Not only has she successfully navigated all four of the career pivot points keenly captured here, she has always encouraged other women to boldly do the same. As someone who is transitioning at the mid-career stage, I am frequently reviewing insights Perry previously shared with me in order to develop the best plan of action to land my next opportunity.

Niya M,
Age 39, Manager, Fortune 100 Company, Chicago

Perry is a force to be reckoned with and someone I wish I could be mentored by on a daily basis. She is the kind of woman leader I am eager to work for - not only because of what she herself has achieved but because she also takes the time to mentor and ensure that up-and-coming women behind her are preparing themselves for positions of leadership. Her direct and open style have helped me better understand the kinds of positions I would excel at.

Bulbul G,
Age 38, Social Innovation Consultant, NYC

I transitioned from the non-profit world to the private sector and had the amazing opportunity to work with Perry. She is first and foremost a great listener, which makes her leadership feel more authentic and genuine than many other senior leaders I've worked with (men and women alike). Through Perry's infinite experience, openness, and candid feedback, I learned how to become a more effective communicator, how to stand firm in what I believe, and how to be a better businesswoman overall.

Michelle M,

Perry is dynamic, persuasive and talented. She has a wealth of experience across industries and markets. Coupled with her personality, Perry perfectly blends tried and true tactics with a deep understanding of today’s business trends, making her someone I trust to help me manage my career.

Courtney W,
Age 35, Assistant Director, Top MBA school, Chicago

Perry gave me the impetus to return to work.  She helped me update my resume, write a strong cover letter, and prepare for interviewing – all after being out of the job market for more than a decade.  With these things in hand, and Perry’s encouragement, I got myself ‘out there’ and quickly landed a job that is perfect for me, and my lifestyle!  Thank you Perry!

Helen P,

Perry has been a role model for me since she launched her career, assiduously -- and successfully -- pursuing meaning in both her personal and professional life. Her steadfast dedication is something I admire, and can always count on. I am proud and honored to know her as a friend and colleague. She keeps me on my toes, and going after what matters. Thank you, Perry!

Perry and I met as peers in the same profession nearly 20 years ago. We bonded over shared experiences and traded stories and solutions. She remains a trusted confidante who has helped me think through a number of challenging work situations - some technical, others political. Clear-eyed, forthright and honest, Perry is true to herself and reminds me to be the same.

Kathy B,
Age 51, Practice Chair, Global Communications Firm, Washington, D.C.

Perry and I met at Kraft in 2007. She was at the top of the food chain and I was closer to the bottom. Perry provided me with the perspective and guidance I needed to navigate my way through a $50BN company. Through our 1:1 discussions, she gave me the confidence to deliver and to ask for what I wanted which resulted in 3 promotions in 3 short years. Work was my only real responsibility at the time and I remember thinking, how does Perry have more energy than me!? Being in her presence is inspiring. Her dynamism is contagious. But what sets Perry apart is that she shows up engaged and curious. Her willingness to guide and mentor the next generation of leaders has been instrumental to my success.

Jessica M,
Age 36, Global Procurement Leader, Fortune 100 Company, Chicago

Perry has been there, done that, and is still doing it. Over more than three decades, I’ve witnessed Perry’s drive and determination to advance her career in both the corporate and agency worlds.  She has the unique skills to be both a dynamic presenter and an intense, active listener. Perry's varied experiences enable her to coach women at any level. It can be as simple as what to wear to the more "complicated and delicate" subjects of how to handle people. And everything in between. Her thoughts/opinions/advise are solid, well thought out, time tested, and respected by many.  She is a trusted advisor.

Sue B,
Age 55, Nuclear Engineer, Annapolis

Perry couples her solid experience from years in some of the world's most demanding corporate jobs with contagious enthusiasm, boatloads of personal and professional generosity, and optimism alongside pragmatism. The fact that she will share this with a wider audience offers a really exciting opportunity to women ready to launch careers and dreams

Compared with men, women are notoriously opportunistic and reticent in the way they approach their career progression.  Throughout her own career Perry has defied this norm: demonstrating courage, resilience and a long-term outlook that has taken her to the top.   She is passionate about women reaching their full potential, so any woman seeking her counsel is in very good hands

Mel L,
Age 45, Partner, Consulting Firm, Philadelphia

Perry will inspire and guide you to open the door to your true, untapped, potential. Her expert advice and contagious dynamism empower you to become the best that you can be and to take on opportunities according to the value you bring to an employer.  You will feel “light”, inspired, and unstoppable after talking to Perry.  She is a true powerhouse.

Belisa D,
Age 48, Director, Latin America, NGO, Washington, DC

Perry leads by example in all she has achieved throughout her career, while offering sound career coaching. She has taken the time to help me think about how to define and get what I need out of each role or position I hold even as my priorities and skills evolve. With her communications expertise, Perry has also helped me think about how to craft my personal value proposition in a compelling way.
