MY CAREER STORY
Judith launched The Humphrey Group in 1988. Her vision of marrying leadership and communication remains central to the firm’s mission. Under her leadership, The Humphrey Group grew from a boutique firm working with top executives to a global enterprise that teaches leaders at all levels how to influence and inspire. As CEO of The Humphrey Group, Judith has provided coaching to top executives in a broad range of industries, including banking, technology, telecommunications, pharmaceutical, energy, and many others. Her Taking the Stage program for women has reached close to a million women around the world in companies like IBM, Walmart, Dell, Microsoft, and Google.
She is a superb coach who has worked with leaders and job applicants at all levels – from CEOs to aspiring first-time job seekers — enabling them to come across with clear, consistent and convincing messages. As a result, her clients have earned the respect of their teams and broader audiences, and the job seekers she’s coached have consistently won the positions they sought.
Ms. Humphrey was awarded the YWCA Woman of Distinction Award in the category of Entrepreneurship. Judith has an M.A. in English from The University of Rochester and taught communications at York University in Toronto. She lives in Toronto with her husband.
She is a frequent speaker on the subject of leadership communications; speaking as a leader; women’s leadership, impromptu speaking, and creating a narrative that lands you that big job. She enjoys bringing her books to the attention of leaders in business schools, corporations, and other organizations.
While she writes for Fast Company and promotes her books, The Humphrey Group is thriving under the capable leadership of her son, Bart Egnal, President and CEO.
