Follow the Sun’s unique direction allowed our organization to see all the natural resources currently in our ecosystem which made fundraising seem much less about stretching but more about bringing our community together.
Erica is an insightful, process-oriented leader and mentor. She puts great thought and care into her work—pulling from a wide range of expertise to catalyze change within a person or organization. Her passion for, and commitment to, helping people and the planet is evident in her holistic approach. I can’t recommend Erica enough!
Erica has been an integral part of The Heart Series conference for the past two years. Not just as a speaker, but as a true partner—always going beyond. She led the initiative that brought GoPro on as the patron of our ‘Have Heart Do Well’ award. As a panelist of one of our most attended sessions ‘The Future of Social Responsibility’, she shared invaluable insight and knowledge with the audience of business people; led the viewing of a GoPro documentary to an overflowing room; and stayed well past her allocated time to answer every single question. We couldn’t have asked for a better or more respected speaker, leader in the social responsibility field, and friend to the conference.
It has been a tremendous pleasure to work and collaborate with Erica over the past years. Her journey brought her passion for operational excellence and social causes to GoPro, where initially she led our operational excellence and further broadened with social and corporate responsibility. Her experience, discipline and focus further fueled by her passion resulted in measureable results across the board. Erica’s broad experience as a change agent, focused demeanor and desire to make the world a better place, have brought her to a new pinnacle in her strive to help clients to drive and attain the same positive energy across their organizations with a balanced and thoughtful approach that mimics the environment and nature. As CEO of FOLLOW THE SUN, Erica can offer a unique opportunity and experience that I am sure will delight her clients as they journey through discovery of what makes them FLOW.
I initially heard Erica speak at the Heart Series in Los Angeles and knew that I had to invite her to be a featured guest on my podcast, The Chair. She was fantastic and shared heartfelt insights of how to transition and pivot careers. There is no doubt in my mind that Erica’s example of ‘following the sun’ will inspire others to do the same.
