Opening her own shop in 1989 was an experiment that’s never ended for Teresa Zumwald, a speechwriter, speech coach, communications consultant and three-time corporate history book author.
Teresa is celebrating her 30th year in business at Zumwald & Company, LLC, where she works one-on-one with brilliant CEOs, entrepreneurs and subject matter experts to tell stories that resonate.
In 2009 she added speechwriting to her repertoire, and since 2013, her speeches have won 15 international, national and regional awards including nine Cicero Speechwriting Awards from Vital Speeches of the Day.
Teresa also manages complex communication projects, working closely with executives, managers and administrative staff as well as graphic designers, web developers, videographers, photographers, printers and other supplier partners. Her award-winning copywriting work – recognized by eight professional organizations – has been published in 50 magazines, journals and corporate publications and online.
Teresa, who earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from The Ohio State University, is president of the Greater Cincinnati chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators. She served on WiBN’s founding advisory board from 2010–2013 and is a WiBN 2011 Top 25 Women to Watch honoree.
