Joyce Welsh, CPA/MST
Joyce Welsh is the CFO/COO/Director of Customer Success at BrightWork Inc, an international Project Management software company with headquarters in Ireland. With her roots in Finance, she spent 30 years passionately studying and experimenting with Relationship Capital (aka Doing Business Differently or Remodeling your Life – At Work). Through her work, Joyce strives to answer the question, “How do CFOs balance the challenges of the financial “rulekeeper” with the importance of building relationships across the workplace and outside the organizations with partners and vendors?”
Outside of her financial studies, Joyce has done extensive studying in coaching, meditation, positive affirmations, yoga and neuroscientific explanations of the behavioral patterns we display at work and home. She continuously experiments with simple techniques to bring more joy/satisfaction and less frustration/stress into the workday, for herself, her team, and her clients. In the process, these studies have allowed her to expand from a very financial role into broader roles in the organization such as senior management, customer success, sales, negotiations and cooperative (people) framework.
Welsh graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science from University of Massachusetts Lowell with a double major in Accounting and MIS. She received her Masters in Taxation from Bentley University and is a certified public accountant in Massachusetts. In addition, Joyce is a graduate level instructor at RTI, a personal development institute, holding numerous certificates in coaching, meditation, energy medicine and applying personality profiles in the workplace.
