Elsie Maio

Founder & CEO, Humanity/SoulBranding
Elsie Maio guides leaders to find their equilibrium in the wobbly space between profitability and a loving impact on the whole living system. Pioneers guided by her company’s unique SoulBranding℠ System over the past 20 years have become today’s frontrunners in the ESG-stakeholder economy. They draw on her team’s blended experience on Wall Street, at McKinsey&Co, as authors and CEOs themselves in entertainment, pro-social investments, communications, values-based management, and board advisory in ethical marketing.

Now, as “Business and investing are over-ripe for a systemic flush,” Elsie coaches on the next leap to a Wellbeing Economy. Chief among these she says is to: “Free the soul of marketers and activate the organization’s G Spot.” The SoulBranding℠ System lends stability to this inherently chaordic process: “like handrails for the individual and the ecosystem.” Elsie speaks and publishes at the edge of transformation on global industry and academic platforms, on NPR and occasionally on social media. Her company advises leaders committed to serving humanity.
