Jamie has been speaking and consulting on issues of leadership, conflict, and diversity for twenty years.
He started his career in the international conflict resolution field. He spent six years designing and delivering training programs in areas of ethnic conflict (if you get a chance, ask him about the awesome people on the island of Cyprus). He then moved into working with organizations, initially as a diversity trainer and consultant, and later running his own management consulting practice, working extensively with trade associations and professional societies. He also spent five years Management Solutions Plus (an association management company), where he led the consulting division and served as an executive director for some of MSP’s association clients. His master’s degree is in conflict resolution from George Mason University, and he holds a Certificate in Organization Development from Georgetown, where he serves as adjunct faculty.
He loves to write. He has dozens of published articles to go along with a 2007 e-book (Generational Diversity in the Workplace), a 2006 paperback (We Have Always Done it That Way: 101 Things About Associations We Must Change), and the 2011 hardcover, Humanize: How People-Centric Organizations Succeed in a Social World.
An early adopter of social media, he has been blogging since 2005, originally on the “Get Me Jamie Notter” blog (which is now here at jamienotter.com). The name of the original blog was coined by David Gammel who heard about a client that called Jamie on a Thursday to see if he could facilitate a staff retreat the next Tuesday (they had a “Get me Jamie Notter” moment). Now he also blogs regularly at SocialFish.org and Switch And Shift.
