Workplace Strategist & Founder, The Spaghetti Project
Erica is a workplace strategist who has worked for the past twenty years with some of the most iconic brands in the world as a consultant, speaker, writer and professional dot-connector. She helps top-of-the-class businesses, organizations, and individuals improve their performance by honoring relationships in every context, always with an eye toward high-tech for human touch. Erica is the founder of the Spaghetti Project, a platform devoted to sharing the science and stories of human connections with global brands, community groups, teams and individuals. Inspired by a 2015 Cornell study showing that firemen who eat together are better at their jobs (they save more lives!), and as a hats-off to the firemen and their go-to firehouse meal, she calls her work the Spaghetti Project. Erica received her MBA from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University, a pioneer in teamwork and collaboration, and her B.A. from the University of Vermont. Her forthcoming book, “Bring Your Human to Work: Ten Sure-Fire Ways to Design a Workplace That is Good for People, Great for Business, and Just Might Change the World,” will be published by McGraw Hill in the Fall of 2018.
