Blair Brennan Slaughter, PhD
Founder and CEO
Blair had two goals in her professional career. One was to get her PhD (finally in 2012!). The other was to start her own business. She did the latter in 2019, forming Delve Consulting – a consultancy focused on enabling leaders and organizations to achieve their strategic objectives through excellence in the people side of the business. This includes how the business is structured and led, the people it hires, how it manages and rewards them, and effective working relationships, especially at the top.
Blair is best described as an senior executive advisor, helping her clients see how to best leverage their own and their organization’s strengths, while frankly, and with support, closing the gaps that prevent them from achieving their personal and organizational objectives. Her clients report that she effectively balances empathy, challenge, care, and intuitive problem solving when she links arms with them to solve their professional or organizational challenges.
Blair’s expertise is in scaling start-ups and working with larger organizations as they navigate significant transitions such as tech transformation or change in strategy. She has worked in virtually every industry from financial services, to oil and gas, to non-profits, bringing her unique business/people perspective informed by her Finance undergrad and MBA and her doctorate in organization development and leadership.
When not working with her amazing clients, Blair dedicates time to the Gathering Point Giving Circle, a non-profit she helped found which supports women and children in need in the Baltimore region, and being a Board Member and Program Committee co-chair of Leadership Maryland, a program focused on making Maryland a great place to live and work. On the weekends, you will likely find her in a local farmer’s market or in the kitchen cooking for her friends and family (husband Dave, daughters Natalie and Cecilia, and a very rambunctious chocolate lab, Luke).
