Jaime Marco

Panel Moderator

Jaime Marco is the owner and President of Evolve Business Consulting.  Jaime has an established, comprehensive, and proven background in sales, branding, training & development, leadership coaching, facilitation, change management, business development and professional speaking – experience that she has cultivated over many years.

Over the last 15 years, Jaime has worked with numerous companies and organizations to instill the change they desired to facilitate an increase in their customer satisfaction, grow their customer base, develop their team members, train their leadership, and increase and solidify their brand awareness.

When it comes to learning and development, Jaime stands by the philosophy that a Trainer is not one who just stands in front of the room and lectures but rather one who knows the importance of engaging and developing an associates’ thinking and to encourage them to become an active part of the learning process. She believes that while it’s important to know the “What” but even more important to know the “Why”.

Jaime has considerable experience working with teams and individuals all over the world and in a diverse range of industries. While business models and companies may be different, the common factor is people. Jaime’s advanced understanding of the behaviors of people and cultural differences allows for her to directly relate to her clients and to create an impactful training, coaching session, and presentation.
