Corporate Leadership

Metro-Atlanta native, Yannik McKie, who majored in business in college, and went on to put his business administration acumen into practice and entrepreneurship, after losing both his parents to AIDS, managed to own his first business by the age of 24.

For his efforts in business, Yannik was awarded the Change Maker of the year award from the National Leadership Council and was inducted into his alma mater, Georgia Southern University’s, top 40 under 40 alumni class. 

Running a profitable business can be one of life’s toughest challenges, but it doesn’t have to be!

As a Certified Coach, Yannik has successfully consulted with companies from a myriad of different industries and can coach one-on-one with the owner/C.E.O of the business or with the group of key decision makers. Yannik works primarily with Small Businesses and Start-ups, but considers other opportunities, based upon the services requested.
