Mary Boone  

President of Boone Associates, Author, Speaker

Mary Boone boasts cutting edge approaches to organizational communication and strategic applications of information technology (IT).

She is president of Boone Associates, a consulting firm located in Norwalk, CT. She speaks, coaches, and consults to individuals and organizations about how they can improve their performance through innovative approaches to communication and collaboration.

Boone's fascination with communication in organizations is a 20-year passion. As the head of her own consulting firm, she not only coaches individual executives on their personal approaches to communication, but she also helps them achieve enhanced organizational results through her consulting, speeches and training.

Boone's latest book, "Managing  Executing Business Strategy, Improving Communication and Creating a Knowledge-Sharing Culture" (McGraw-Hill, 2001) sets forth her innovative theory of interactive management and communication and includes insights from top executives such as Bill Esrey, CEO of Sprint; Gerry Laybourne, CEO of Oxygen Media; and Steve Kerr, Chief Learning Officer of General Electric.

Throughout her career, Boone has been an integrator of ideas across disciplines. Managing draws on wisdom from interviews with over 80 communication, information technology, organizational development, sales and marketing, human resource, and knowledge management executives and professionals.

Boone's ideas have received widespread attention. Leadership and the Computer (Prima Publishing, 1990, 1993), was selected as required reading for Congress by the Speaker of the House in 1995, and Successful Meetings Magazine selected Boone as one of the top 25 speakers for 1996. Among those quoting from and praising her work are Tom Peters, The New York Times, CNN, CNBC, National Public Radio, The Financial Times, Investor's Business Daily, Computerworld, Information Week, CIO Magazine, Chief Executive Magazine, and Industry Week.

While Boone's work always incorporates a focus on technology, the human communication issues are of primary interest to her. Boone's previous book, Leadership and the Computer contains compelling case studies of CEOs, chairmen, and presidents who use information technology to change corporate cultures, coach people throughout the firm, manage organizational transition, and enhance their personal effectiveness. Currently serving as a regular columnist for Sales and Marketing Management Magazine, Boone also hosts a regular segment on FMN, a video series for financial executives. She has authored over 100 articles for a wide variety of general business and information systems publications.
