Abby Joslin is an Atlanta business coach who specializes in working with creative and tech startups in their first few years of business. She helps to organize and run the annual SIEGE conference, has run the SIEGE business track for several years, and is the former Atlanta chapter president for the Georgia Game Developers Association. She offers business strategy services as well as skills coaching in pricing, business promotion through events, and negotiation theory and practice. She has an MBA from Georgia State University and gets weirdly enthusiastic when talking about business.
When not talking to clients, writing, or giving a talk somewhere, she can often be found upside down on a trapeze, cooking something decadent, playing a new computer game, or working on a game industry-related project.
Some recent talks:
- Panel Moderator, Networking & Team Building, Georgia Game Developers Association Chapter Meeting
- Smith College Women in Leadership: Redefining Success Conference. Northampton, MA.
- Southern Interactive Entertainment & Game Expo (SIEGE). Atlanta, GA
In my efforts to establish a personal brand and business, Abby has been kind, courteous, and generous with her time and input. Abby has helped me organize my professional thought process, and approach each issue from a logical, methodical point of view. She has also been a wonderful resource for networking with new potential clients and professional support services. In short, it has been a pleasure to have her assistance, and it is a pleasure to recommend her services to others.Matt Franklin
I enlisted Abby’s help to lay the foundation for my growing, 2-years-old business. Her active listening skills and communication style enabled me to vent my frustrations over fine details (I’m a big picture gal!), as well as gently guide me through my resistance to change. Abby helped me realize that there were places where I was unwilling to relinquish control, which was holding me back and decreasing efficiency. Abby also presented tools and ideas that helped me feel safe enough to let go of that control… and my business is humming along wonderfully, as a result!
Abby’s business experience and perspective have brought clarity to any number of areas within the GGDA. Her systematic approach to teamwork, planning and coordinating events, and long-term thinking have helped us grow and expand our community offerings in strategic, productive ways. Working with her has been not only productive, but fun and energizing.Andrew Greenberg
