Career Coach for Marketing leaders

Berkeley Certified Executive Coach Logo

My clients have described me as an experienced, practical, emotionally intelligent, and a results-focused marketing coach. For eight years, I’ve coached marketing leaders, business owners, and marketers at every level in building a purposeful career.

Why hire me as a marketing coach? First off, I show up every session ready to listen to what you’re working on and prepared to help guide you through your own decision-making process, and when it makes sense, provide relevant recommendations. 

I bring a diverse mix of experience to each session as I’ve been in the marketing field for 15+ years, worked with a range of leaders and companies across sectors, owned my own marketing consultancy for 10+ years, and have delivered over 160+ coaching hours to clients with a variety of backgrounds from all over the world. 

I’m a certified executive coach by the Berkeley Executive Coaching Institute, a part of Haas School of Business at University of California, Berkeley. I’m also in the process of earning a coaching certification from the International Coaching Federation.

What’s my coaching methodology? I offer a mix of directive and non-directive coaching focused on moving you forward in your career in marketing or a related field. 

Directive coaching is when I’m providing my own advice and recommendations in service of finding the right solution to a technical challenge where there’s less ambiguity as to what the right answer is. For example, formatting a resume or optimizing an aspect of your marketing campaign are often considered technical challenges. 

Non-directive coaching is when I’m helping you to problem-solve for yourself, so you’re identifying your own solution to an adaptive problem. An adaptive challenge is an issue where there’s a variety of ways to address it like how to define the next step in your career or ways of better motivating your direct reports. Either way, my support is outcome driven, actionable, unconventional, realistic, mindful of rules and how to bend them, well-researched, and a frictionless experience.

What does a coaching session look like? Every session is a mix of self-examination and establishing tangible steps towards progress. I meet with all my clients virtually via Zoom for one-hour sessions where we focus on addressing a particular career or marketing-related topic. 

The goal is to move you forward with an opportunity you’re considering or a challenge you’re up against. You set the stage by explaining the circumstances, I ask a series of questions, explore viable options, and finally, we’ll create a plan of action.

What results should I expect from collaborating? Depending on the coachee, I’ve helped individuals land more interviews, receive more job offers, get promoted, negotiate a higher salary, identify the next step in their career, stand out in a crowded job market, communicate more effectively with their team, establish their leadership style, better manage workplace conflicts, gain more visibility for themselves, and increase revenue from their marketing investments.

Career Refresh Package


Price: $1,575 (Four Sessions)

Sessions are conducted weekly or biweekly

As a career coach, I help marketers land their first or next marketing job, more effectively navigate the workplace on their terms, and start-off and maintain their freelance careers. Whether you’re breaking into the field for the first time or you’re an established marketer, this package is designed for professionals looking to refresh their career and advance to their next stage.

With over a decade of experience and a certification as a Berkeley Executive Coach, I’ve worked one-on-one with dozens of marketers to get them hired, promoted, and respected at work. My goal is to help you build a career aligned to your needs.

How we’ll work together:

A four-week coaching program customized to your professional circumstances and unique career goals. Each session will be focused on an aspect of positioning yourself successfully, whether we’re pinpointing your skill gaps, building out your resume, practicing your interview skills, improving your communication approach, or defining how you’ll articulate your personal brand.

These sessions often cover some of the professional development areas below, but will vary based on the coachee:

  • Finding clarity by identifying the next career path you should consider in or out of marketing.
  • Developing a concise, distinctive, and compelling story about your career for yourself and others.
  • Drafting an effective resume, cover letter, portfolio, and LinkedIn profile that generates interviews or leads.
  • Recommendations on how to stand out from other candidates in a competitive job market.
  • Determining whether you’re best suited to position yourself as specialist vs. a generalist.
  • Interview preparation including identifying questions you’ll likely be asked and practicing with mock interviews.
  • Ensuring you’re successful in a new role from the beginning.
  • Improving your approach to collaborating with others on your team and across departments.
  • Navigating and resolving conflict in the workplace.
  • How to gain visibility in the workplace and confidently communicate your contributions.
  • How to take ownership of your career to negotiate a higher salary or earn your next promotion.
  • How to start and maintain a well-balanced career as a freelancer.
  • Establishing a personal brand that reflects your skills, experience, and leadership style.

Each session is an hour long and we’ll meet weekly or biweekly depending on your availability. A major benefit of meeting for four sessions is more time to identify your roadblocks and take action to address these opportunities. Plus, more face time with me is an opportunity to get feedback on the changes you’re making so we can continue to finetune your approach.

What we’ll accomplish:

Upon completing the sessions, you’ll have a career road map to follow, a firm understanding of your strengths and gaps to address, the ability to communicate about your career internally and externally, and improved clarity on how to advance.

Tiffany Babb

He’s incredibly kind, patient, knowledgeable—and is sympathetic to even the most basic questions. I’m now really fluent in dozen or so new “languages” thanks to Brian’s expertise."
Henry Goldblatt
Editor-in-Chief at Entertainment Weekly
"I had the pleasure of working with Brian and I couldn’t have asked for a better career coach and mentor. Not only he helped me to take the right direction in my career but also gave me the right knowledge to work on my skillset. During our time of working together, Brian has always excelled at identifying room for improvement and at developing a mid- or long-term vision incorporating these improvements. I can't be more thankful for the guidance I got through him."
Vidushi Malhan
Global Social Media Manager at Nu3, Skintist, and BEAVITA
"Brian was instrumental in my pursuit of starting a new marketing position. Without giving away too much of his secret sauce, Brian took the time to review what I wanted out of my next position but more importantly, how to analyze which positions were potential pitfalls. Brian took the time to review my knowledge gaps and turn them into potential strengths when interviewing. The result of his work was me being offered a job that I wanted within a few weeks of his services."
