MaryBeth Belka

Associate Director, Organizational Effectiveness
MaryBeth, or MB, is an Associate Director in our Organizational Effectiveness practice. Originally from the United States, she has worked with our San Francisco team and is now based in London. Marybeth specializes in helping clients build stronger businesses through improving leadership, increasing employee engagement, and tailoring their internal communication.

MB is passionate about using the power of strategic storytelling to move people in new directions:

Now more than ever, effective leadership should be a priority. A core capability that is often overlooked is how well they communicate – to investors, customers, and most importantly, their people. I enjoy crafting stories that help make work feel more meaningful

She is the ultimate ‘people person’ and loves to help them feel safe to explore their creativity in service of solving complex work problems. Over her career, she has partnered with an array of global brands across industries including financial services, media, healthcare, and transportation to help implement critical leadership, communication, and business initiatives that impact employee behaviors and cultures.

Outside of the office, she volunteers for a mental health charity, practices Pilates, and recently got a dog, Rupert.

I’m encouraged by the increased focus that organizations are putting on supporting their employees’ mental health. How can we expect people to do their best work if they are suffering in silence? I’m convinced there is a strong correlation between employers who genuinely care about mental wellbeing and business performance
