Maureen O’Sullivan, Owner of Maureen O’Sullivan Coaching, a Startup and Life Coaching firm, Joins Silicon Valley’s Market4Demand Advisory Board

Market4Demand, Inc. (, a Silicon Valley technology, life sciences and educational marketing consulting firm, announced today that the company has named a new member to serve on its Advisory Board. The Advisory Board, launched in November of 2008, consists of respected and successful Silicon Valley professionals committed to helping Market4Demand meet its goals for continued expansion and further contribution to the resources available to entrepreneurs and executives. Maureen O’Sullivan joins existing distinguished Advisory Board members, Chris Gill, current CEO at SVForum and former president and CEO of SVASE who has co-founded 8 companies, with 6 achieving profitable liquidity events; Lucie Newcomb, global strategist and CEO, NewComm Global Group; Simon Berman, senior director of product marketing at mobile startup Appcelerator; Dr. Stephen McElfresh, principal and founder at HR Futures who has served as former CEO of Saratoga Institute and as chief HR officer for SRI International, Exponent and Friden Alcatel; and Brian Reaves, global vice president and global lead, products and service delivery, design and frontline applications for SAP.

"Market4Demand has distinguished itself as a thought-leader in Silicon Valley for more than 12 years not only with its Marketing Educational Series for Entrepreneurs (MESE) but also through the commitment of the company’s CEO, Sarah Autrand, to educate and serve entrepreneurs as an interim marketing executive and help CEOs, founders, and investors expedite revenues and liquidity through best practices in marketing," said Ms. O’Sullivan, owner of Maureen O’Sullivan Coaching. “Mobile, web app, social media, security, network, and other high-tech and biotech entrepreneurs face tremendous personal and professional obstacles. I'm delighted to have the opportunity to empower these talented individuals to more efficiently navigate challenges, to leverage strengths, to become better leaders, to optimize their mental skills for peak performance and at the same time, stay healthy so they can be most productive and achieve their goals and dreams without sacrificing their livelihoods.”

Through her unique “Life Upgraded!” programs, Ms. O’Sullivan empowers clients to upgrade their professional and personal lives. Clients learn how to objectively assess and manage circumstances; get clear on strengths, values, priorities; test assumptions with managed risk; and formulate powerful goals and action plans. They learn effective tools and strategies to proactively design all aspect of their lives as opposed to simply attempting to manage what comes their way. In today’s fast-paced global economy, it's mission-critical that startup executives are clear on their intentions and have a plan to achieve them along with the energy needed to execute.

Ms. O’Sullivan’s proven coaching approach is based on cognitive behavioral therapy and is tremendously effective in that she addresses the root cause of any problematic behavior versus treating the actions or symptoms that present themselves as a result of the cause. Accordingly, clients improve substantially and with more permanence as it relates to communication skills development, decision making strategies, effectively navigating change, stress management, leadership development and, effective on-boarding techniques to name a few.

The Market4Demand Advisory Board members all bring experience and unique insights to business for both Market4Demand and its entrepreneurial and executive clientele. Together, the Advisory Board members will help Market4Demand expand and improve its marketing service offerings designed for entrepreneurs and CEOs in startup and midrange enterprises as well as leaders of entrepreneurial departments within large organizations.

"The considerable 21 plus years marketing and sales executive expertise combined with more recent life coaching certification and experience Ms. O’Sullivan demonstrates will be vital as we build a scalable organization that continues to serve Silicon Valley entrepreneurial customers, many of whom have had positive exit strategies through acquisition," said Sarah Autrand, founder and CEO of Market4Demand, Inc. "She will be a tremendous resource to Market4Demand and our executive customers as they navigate the personal and business challenges and learn to leverage key opportunities associated with personal and professional growth and success."
