About Montine

IMBA, Certified Coach & Consultant

Transformational Coach, Life Strategist, and Entrepreneur, Montine Blank has 20 years' experience both consulting to established companies as well as concepting and developing start-ups. With a B.A. in Organizational Development, Master in International Business, a healthy career with Accenture and Publicis Groupe, and experienced Startup Coach Leader for Ladies Who Launch, Montine is well-qualified to help guide people in career and life transition.

Before coaching full time, Montine served as Account Director with Big Fuel, a Publicis Groupe company,  overseeing the launch of the Samsung Global Social Media footprint and US Budweiser Social Medial campaigns. Prior to that, she launched The Green Half, a thriving on-line business with 10,000 subscribers and thousands of customers who frequent the site to purchase discount gift cards to sustainable businesses while supporting local non-profits.  Before being sold to Cumulus Media, The Green Half was originally linked to GreenPlate, Inc., a non-profit organization Montine co-launched aimed at the reduction of disposable plastics consumption.

In the decade previous, she concepted and created three one-of-a-kind art businesses, CraZy MoOn ArT RoOM, T-Shirt Construction Co. and Paint Awake (previously Paint Your Guts Out!) – each applauded in the press for value and ingenuity. Additionally, she has over 8 years experience in strategic communications and training for large corporations. From international satellite training and communications projects to fledgling retail shops, Montine enjoys the challenges and rewards of launching success.

In addition to GreenPlate, Laptop Launchers and The Green Half, Blank envisioned and executed “art as entertainment” retail/studio T-Shirt Construction Co. for custom printing. The resulting business was rated 2006 Critic’s Pick for best in New Art Trends by the Creative Loafing and voted top 100 “IT” List by Sunday Paper.  Since 1999, she has maintained a uniquely therapeutic art studio called Paint Awake where she and others facilitate expressive art classes, workshops and parties for adults and children.

Strategic Communications
Montine developed strategic communications with senior-level executives and successfully managed strategic & tactical responsibility for large-scale events.  She fused communications objectives with behavior change theories, strategy and technology to guide interactions across levels of an organization, thereby creating trust, ownership and commitment.  One of her team’s strategic communications programs was awarded the IABC (International Association of Business Communicators) Global Golden Quill award for excellence and innovation in internal communications programs.

Executive Distance Training
Blank has designed and produced distance learning program to outfit senior executives at Accenture with eCommerce solutions for clients.  Feedback from more than 90% of participants rates the “overall quality of the workshop” the highest of any previous workshop at Accenture.

Change Management Consulting
