My name is Esther and I am the founder of Hipona Consulting, a niche consulting firm that helps organizations understand and engage with their stakeholders and markets in the Latin America region.
This is my personal blog. It is focused on offering business news and tips as well as regional and local insights for organizations and individuals with ties to Latin America.
The topics I cover here relate to building better companies at the board level (corporate governance and strategy) and through stakeholder engagement, strategic communications and new project development. My goal is to create relevant content for you to put to use in your organization and your life.
I post 1 to 3 times a week. Please subscribe so you don’t miss my latest posts!
I live and work in Quito, Ecuador – the “middle of the world” – but have travelled and sailed extensively (over 35 countries) since the age of 10.
I founded Hipona Consulting after observing a need for organizations to make better decisions (and make ideas work) based on really knowing and listening to their stakeholders. I have worked with internationally-recognized brands such as BMW and Amazon.com as well as with government agencies, private investors and publically traded companies in IT, professional services and education.
I am passionate about creating value for companies by bridging the gap between business and stakeholders through effective communications, branding and engagement strategies. I hold an International MBA from the Schulich School of Business in Toronto (ranked #1 in Canada by The Economist) and received the highest standing in Business Ethics at the Universidad Adolfo Ibañez in Chile (ranked #1 in Latin America by America Economia).
I hope you enjoy reading my blog. Please provide me with feedback; I’m listening.
