Wendy Burruel is an author, speaker, and consultant who is inspiring a global conscious movement by encouraging people around the world to connect more openly, honestly and authentically with one another. She maintains that many of us are unaware that we are disengaged from each other, from
ourselves and from our purpose in life, and it is this disconnection that drives much of the turmoil in our lives. As a connection expert, Wendy educates her clients on how to see the ways that individual and group interaction impact us on a daily basis and how we MISS THE CONNECTION. We miss connecting to ourselves, to others and to our purpose in life. This disengagement often leaves us depressed and empty, like something is missing – even if we can’t quite put a finger on it. Wendy helps people connect to THEMSELVES, to OTHERS and to THEIR OWN UNIQUE PURPOSE IN LIFE. Because of her unique skills, experience, and educational background, Wendy is unsurpassed in effectively helping both individuals and organizations identify missing connections in order to dramatically transform and become more successful.
Wendy has a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from California State University East Bay and a Master’s degree from National University. She has studied behavior in clinical settings while training as a therapist and in business while working in Silicon Valley. In her over 20 years spent in the technology sector, Wendy has held various roles, all with a focused effort on making companies better for women, new college graduates and new engineers. Seeing firsthand how people were disconnected from each other in the workplace, Wendy joined forces with Romeo Marquez, Jr. to create The Connect More Project, aimed at encouraging people to connect more openly, honestly and authentically with those around them. This effort included a video profiling business people going about their day with each person’s internal struggle shown on the screen: http://connectmoreproject.com/.
