Becky Davis, former regional vice president for the world's largest global optical company, Luxottica, has launched her new company, MVPwork, a corporate consulting firm addressing the needs of small business owners.
"Fifty percent of small businesses fail within five years of starting up. My goal, my mission, and my passion is to reduce this statistic via proper leadership training. America cannot survive without the small business market, it drives our economy." Davis says. She will kick off her first small business training session on May 4 called "The P-Factor...a 3 part strategy to higher profits."
After 20 years of service to Fortune 100 Corporate Companies, Davis focuses her interest on Atlanta's small business owners. What prompted the change was her observation as a regional VP of smaller businesses lacking leadership abilities in their organization and therefore resulted in the company going out of business. She often wished she had gotten to them (smaller market) sooner.
"I believe can prevent these companies from closing their doors with proper leadership training!" she says.
According to CNN.com, the small business market is responsible for 65 percent of employment and economic growth in America. "By simply addressing Atlanta's issues first, I am actually addressing a worldwide issue. We must stop overlooking our bread and butter," Davis notes.
Davis is a published author, magazine contributor, and motivational speaker and has devised systematic strategies to increase a company's bottom line, just through the use of effective leadership. She introduces her latest series titled, "The Leadership Transformation Blueprint," designed with the small business owner in mind.
Davis is also an advocate of diversity and has collaborated with organizations such as Coca-Cola. She has received numerous accolades, appeared on many radio shows, and has been recognized as one of the "Powerful Women of Influence," along with women such as CNN journalist Soledad O'Brien, former Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin, and actress and philanthropist Jasmine Guy.
