With more than three decades of marketing, advertising and production experience, Cea has developed a sharp eye for how messages get lost in translation. As an entrepreneur who quickly built her own successful theatre and film production career, she has wowed her client list with her ability to see how they can retool for a sleeker, smoother, strategically focused message.
Great talent recognizes great talent. In 2005, while producing a documentary film about a racecar team redefining a chance of a lifetime opportunity for developing drivers, Cea was recruited by the owners of Newman Wachs Racing team (NWR). The late Academy Award winning actor, Paul Newman and partner Eddie Wachs, a veteran racer and astute business owner, hired Cea to develop a marketing program for NWR. What they got was ground breaking… a successful philanthropic endeavor supported by competing corporate interests under the watchful eye of a government agency, the NEI …a feat never tried before in the history of auto racing.
Since her term with NWR, she instructs other business owners to set priorities and create the balance they want between their work and life via a needs and abilities assessment. Her client list includes corporate leaders, executives and product developers, as well as government officials, representatives, entertainers and media personalities.
A Nebraska native, Cea is a business and marketing consultant, trainer, and executive coach. She has presented keynote speeches, workshops, presentations and seminars in the Midwest and across the country including “Marketing Process Management…The Order of Things”, Guerilla Marketing Know How", "Tell Me a Story" and "Survival of the Fittest; The Naked Truth of a Single Woman over 50". Her high quality, high energy programs are well researched and delivered in a down to earth style that everyone will remember.
