Marty Stanley, CSP (Certified Speaking Professional), is an author, professional speaker, consultant and award winning executive coach. She works with leaders who want to stay ahead of their competition by creating and operationalizing a winning culture. She does this through presentations, consulting and coaching.

While she was an executive at Employers Health Insurance, the company grew from 250 to 1700 people and became a nation-wide, billion dollar company. They redefined the small group health insurance industry by creating better products, outstanding service and new technology to serve the customer. That company is now Humana. Because Employers Health Insurance stole market share from traditional insurance companies, Marty was hired by Blue Cross Blue Shield because they had to reinvent to compete. As Vice President of Human Resources, she worked closely with the CEO and COO to transform culture at Blue Cross Blue Shield.

While serving as VP of HR at AMC Entertainment, the company opened 50 megaplexes and hired over 500 managers and 2000 staff members. All human resource functions had to be redesigned to meet the new business model, including the hiring criteria, compensation and bonus structures for the real estate and construction teams. Marty was an integral part of that redesign.

In 1999 Marty started Dynamic Dialog, Inc. Her programs focus on leading, communicating and implementing change and culture. While Marty’s expertise is in the insurance industry, she has worked with organizations ranging from engineering and law firms, to rural hospitals and mortgage banking, not-for-profits and associations of all kinds.

She’s the author of: Get Out of B.E.D. (Blame, Excuses and Denial): Change Your Outlook-Alter Your Outcomes and From Type A to Type T: How to Be a Transformational Leader in a Bottom-Line World. Her articles have been published in national and international trade magazines.

Marty is one of fewer than 1000 people in the world who have earned the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation from the National Speakers Association. She is also the recipient of the 2017 Silver Stevie Award for Executive Coaching.

Marty is a native Rhode Islander but always thought she was a California girl. After many years braving Green Bay winters and losing Packer seasons, she moved to Kansas City and was there long enough to enjoy the Royals win the World Series. Now, in La Jolla, CA, Marty is enjoying the SoCal lifestyle and is in search of the best tacos.
