Strategic Partner

L. Michelle Smith

PIN is excited to announce its strategic partnership with L. Michelle Smith and no silos communications llc.

She is the CEO/founder of no silos communications llc, the parent company for six media, content, talent development and strategic communications consulting brands, all fueled by tech. She has more than 25 years of experience as an elite, award-winning communicator and integrated marketer at global agencies, her own boutique agencies and a Fortune 10 technology, telecom and media company.

She raced to the officer ranks in no time in her career, making vice president before the age of 30. Then she “fell” into entrepreneurship, scaling that boutique agency to 7-figure sales in less than 5 years. She’s held officer-level positions for about half her career, but most recently answered the call at Fortune 10 company AT&T. They needed someone to build their D&I corporate communications capability from scratch. She did that in two years, then built another innovative, award-winning business model to compliment it, inclusion marketing.

Today, she has added professional executive and business coaching to her portfolio of services as principal of NSC Executive & Business Coaching, a private practice, and is also the lead trainer at The 30 Minute Mentor™ (#30MM), a knowledge platform which organizes career and leadership cohorts for entrepreneurs and corporate professionals and online masterclasses. She is also the creator, executive producer and host of The Culture Soup Podcast® which is consistently in the Top 10 on Apple Podcasts in the Business/Business News category.

She is one of the most sought after contemporary keynote speakers, facilitators, panelists and hosts on topics surrounding technology, business and culture, and has been featured across the country on some of the biggest stages across multiple industries.

Michelle is also an official contributor to Black Enterprise, sits on the Board of Visitors at the Bob Schieffer College of Communications at Texas Christian University, for which she is also the face of a national ad campaign. She will join the faculty as an adjunct professor of strategic communications in January 2020.
