Meet Shannon Gill
Founder, Chief Guide

 

The Founder of GVG, Shannon Gill, has been in business and leadership for over 28 years, with the majority of that experience inside U.S. Fortune 500 companies and internet startups.

 

In her own journey, she traveled from Georgia, her home state, to Hong Kong where she worked for The Walt Disney Company. From there she ventured to Washington D.C. and then Baltimore, MD to work in the Education sector. Finally, she returned to Georgia where she spent 14 years in Financial Services and Payments including projects in Europe.

 

In her mid-40s, Shannon began to search for more balance in her life and greater meaning in her work. This led her to create Guided Ventures Group (GVG), an organization of leaders and experts who use real-world experience to act as guides for others on their journey of professional and personal growth. GVG Consulting is the first business under the GVG umbrella because elevating people at work makes a difference in every aspect of their life.

 

Shannon is passionate about Conscious Capitalism as a way of doing business and holds a board position with the Conscious Capitalism Atlanta Chapter. She is also SAFe PO/PM, Birkman and Enneagram certified and uses these tools regularly in her work.

 

In addition, Shannon has a passion project for empowering kids in a brand called Cosmic Kitty®. The artwork and stories which began as doodles when Shannon was only 7 years old have developed into a full line of character art, books and products to support educators and non-profits.
