Michael Woodnorth is the Founder & CEO of Woodnorth Advisory, a Nashville-based consultancy that provides strategic advisory and transaction services to mission-driven organizations. Originally from the Chicago area, Michael is a former investment banker and MBA who spent several years in social enterprise consulting, impact investing and nonprofit management. During this varied career, he learned that for-profit organizations had mastered effectiveness and nonprofit organizations had mastered impact, but the two worlds were almost completely siloed from one another. He founded Woodnorth Advisory on the premise that there is great value to be created by integrating the best practices from both. Michael helps social impact business leaders realize their dreams through strategy consulting, transaction advisory, and one-on-one coaching.
