Your Scottsdale Chapter President

Vanessa Shaw

The key to Vanessa’s success isn’t the ability to channel her inner Chrissie Evert or Carrie Bradshaw on command; it’s knowing never to channel them at the same time! Originally from the UK, Vanessa is an International Business and Success Coach with more than 15 years of experience working with business leaders (including those with The World Economic Forum, Oracle, Sandler Training and within the International Coach Federation). “You can’t do it all alone and you MUST surround yourself with others ready to have higher-level conversations.” Vanessa is transparent in sharing her own struggles, bold when asking questions, and unstoppable when it comes to helping other women build their visions at a rapid clip. When you see her at our next event, ask her about the time she “accidentally” won a puppy at auction!

Thank you to our July Sponsor!

Mark Twain once said, “Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
We agree that working in a role you enjoy makes the effort seem less; but at Cambium we know that success only comes from hard work, no matter how much you love what you do.

Our passion is helping business owners reach their goals for growth, stability, and long-term success; and our name is a reflection of that passion. The cambium is the layer of cells directly under the bark of a tree from which all secondary growth emanates. Our goal is to partner with you and become that layer in your business, to give you the solid foundation you need to root your long-term success and to provide you with reliable service that will give you the time you need to focus on your core business activities and business growth rather than on operational tasks and financial management.

With over 20 years’ experience in financial planning and analysis, accounting, and both construction and corporate finance, our team is ready to help you take that step to the next level, whether you need CFO, monthly bookkeeping, or accounting services. Learn more.
