Scrappy Kimberly says: One of the reasons I adore Nathalie is that she makes me look tame by comparison—and I can’t say that about a lot of people outside of the prison system! She’s a motorcycle rider who looks smoking hot in leather. She’s a scuba diver who goes where I sure as heck don’t want to go without an endless supply of oxygen. And she’s absolutely fearless in the face of many-headed demons like huge enterprise software projects and social pressures to conform. But she is one of the most reliable lunatics I know, and she is one of the few people in my life that has succeeded in getting ME to stretch MY boundaries in thinking about what’s possible. Now THAT is Scrappy!
Author – Nathalie Udo, Scrappy Business and Life Consultant, President, InDepth Strategies, LLC
I love inspiring people to achieve what they previously thought was impossible, and have been told that my enthusiasm is infectious. I have helped my clients realize their business objectives by implementing the right amount of project management discipline, process improvement, and executive coaching, or simply through powerful project turnaround.
Don’t be fooled by my girlish appearance! I have a proven record of accomplishments in leading complex international projects for corporations like the Baan Company, Boeing Corporation, Fireman’s Fund, Autodesk, and Kaiser Permanente.
With my relentless energy and drive, I strive to create a lasting and positive difference through balancing structure and creativity. Having worked across many industries, continents and countries I understand the impact and importance of different cultural values and backgrounds. Believing you should live life to the fullest, wherever I can I combine my busy work schedule with InDepth Strategies, LLC, with my two greatest passions—scuba diving and motorcycling.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
