Keldie Jamieson, Certified OBM® Trainer
Keldie Jamieson started her online business in 2009 offering project, operations, and financial management, business startup, marketing, and event services. She blended over 30 years of corporate expertise with online business management training to become a Certified OBM® in 2011. As a Certified OBM Trainer, Keldie is now training and mentoring others to transition their corporate world experience into a successful business and career.
“In 2019, I made the decision to transition from my 20+ year career in corporate to an entrepreneurial role. After a brief Zoom chat with Keldie, I was convinced that being an Online Business Manager was the right move for me. I immediately signed up for the training and subsequently passed my certification with flying colors. In fact, I was able to secure a full-time client before I even graduated!”
