LaKesha Womack founded Womack Consulting Group in 2005. After speaking with a friend who was interning for a top-five consulting firm, she realized that many small business owners lacked access to consultants with the capacity to assist them with operating more efficiently. Using the skills that she attained while working as a Financial Adviser, Retail Store Manager, and Restaurant Trainer, LaKesha recognized that the products/services that each business offers differs, but all businesses require sound human resource policies, strong accounting practices, and documented policies and procedures to be successful. In the past fifteen years, Womack Consulting Group has worked with clients across the globe in various industries, including technology, publishing, retail, transportation, politics, and media. The firm listens to each client's needs to understand their objectives and creates a customized strategic plan to achieve their goals. Through regular strategy sessions, clients are held accountable for doing the work on their business while relying on the expertise of Womack Consulting Group to guide their decision-making.
