Design, Strategy & Coaching

Hello, I’m Gail Swanson. I figure things out. I help people solve their problems without blowing themselves up.

I work in tech, mostly in strategy, design, and product leadership. My work spans a broad range of industries, but I prefer to put my energy into making the world less harsh for people facing formidable hurdles.

I speak and write about strategy, all manners of design, digital innovation, and how talented folks can be more successful at their jobs.


From financial services technology, to digital marketing, to digital transformation and modernization, my work spans many industries and team environments.
