Kirsty Farquharson has owned and managed Edge for the past three years. Prior to Edge, Kirsty consulted with Andersen Consulting and Deloitte, specializing in business transformation and service delivery improvement. She has 25 years of experience in business and operations management, which is remarkable as she hasn't had a birthday for the past 15 years.
Kirsty joined Edge because she was committed to the values, clients and consultants established by Edge's founder, Michelle Sharp.
- Consultants who share their knowledge openly.
- Mentors for our clients and each other.
- Knowledge creators who share deliverables with other Edgelings.
- Knowledge expanders who look at past Edge results and tools with a "this or better" approach, always improving and innovating-not duplicating.
- Professionals known for their extremely high-quality deliverables, their honesty and openness, and a friendly spirit that makes them fun to have on project.
"I love Edge - our clients and consultants fill each day with new ideas, different perspectives, complex issues and lots of laughs. We wallpaper the office with process maps, flip charts and post-it notes, looking for new ways to solve problems and improve our clients' business. We gather knowledge and felt pens at alarming rates. And while we live by a credo of sharing knowledge, the same generosity has not been applied to felt pens! "
If a hoarse but hearty voice greets you with perfect professional courtesy, that's Office Manager Michelle Sim. Her ever-growing array of graphics, publishing, coordinating, and communication skills supports Edge clients, events, products, and relationships. Her ready laugh keeps everyone sane. And her talent makes all of us look good.
As Kirsty and our Edge consultants rock and roll down the road (usually to clients' offices), Rosalin Dalmann is responsible for keeping the wheels on the Edgemobile. Rosalin manages Edge's client contracts, preferred vendor agreements, invoicing, AP/AR. If you have a question about a number, she is the one to ask. We think she can use Excel blindfolded.
