CATHERINE BELL BIOGRAPHY

Catherine Bell is a successful entrepreneur, business leader, and best-selling business author. The Awakened Company, which she founded, focuses on helping organizations create healthy corporate cultures through awakening the self, relationships, and team dynamics.

Previously, Catherine Bell founded BluEra in 2008, a Profit 500 executive search and team transformation company. As a Top-200 Growing Company in Canada, Top 10 in Alberta, and the Best Workplace, BluEra was a shining example of the Awakened Company System in action. With the sale of BluEra to DHR, Catherine shifted focus to awakening the fire within organizations through her Strategy with Soul Consulting and founded The Awakened Company. The Awakened Company aims to awaken the fire within organizations with passion, purpose, and playfulness.

The Awakened Company (2015)—Catherine Bell’s revolutionary business book—was awarded the Nautilus Book Award in Business and Leadership and became a best seller one week after its release.
