Rebranding is a concept most often associated with companies, but seldom is the move considered by people because it comes hand in hand with the assumption that failure is in the equation. However, rebranding is not all about changing tracks after missing one’s original target. At the heart of it is the pursuit of growth and the acknowledgment of the changes in one’s outlook, passion, and goals. Clarice Kavanaugh, PhD, MBA served as a power player in the pharmaceutical industry for 30 years, but after exiting corporate America, she decided to re-engineer herself instead of retiring. By doing so, she sets an example for others to follow and highlights the importance of reinventing oneself.
This well-respected personality, who is part of the roster of acclaimed speakers under Shawn Fair’s Leadership Experience Tour, takes pride in her three-decade career in the world of pharmaceuticals. A former core member of a Fortune 100 company, she gained an in-depth understanding of the field and what it takes to be a leader in a space known for its cut-throat and dynamic nature. Today, she brings to the table a wealth of knowledge and a deep-seated commitment to enabling success for individuals and institutions.
From the corporate to the classroom, Dr. Clarice Kavanaugh is currently embarking on a new journey as a university professor with a doctorate in Organizational Leadership. Banking on her sales, marketing, and training experience, she equips her students with much-needed insights and learnings rooted in reality.

Several guests ranging from epidemiologists to university presidents have graced her podcast and have found an avenue where they could engage in meaningful conversations.
May it be in the classroom or on stage, Dr. Clarice Kavanaugh places a heavy premium on perseverance and dedication when urging others forward — an emphasis born out of her own intimate awareness with the seemingly endless string of challenges and disappointments inherent in the road to success. As a single mother from the south side of Chicago, she had to work her way through college and juggle multiple jobs while supporting her family. But, amid the odds, she persevered and treated her humble beginnings as the stepping stones for a future of wealth and well-being.
In the years to come, this accomplished speaker, who is often sought after by renowned organizations as a facilitator of leadership seminars, team building sessions, and workshops on communication, diversity and inclusion, and unconscious bias in the workplace, aims to foster growth and development for more individuals and companies. Aside from growing her consulting business, she also hopes to speak on global platforms and expand her influence in the future.
