How it  all Started

LARRAINE SEGIL

FOUNDER, CHAIR AND CEO OF THE EXCEPTIONAL WOMEN ALLIANCE FOUNDATION

After a successful career as a lawyer, entrepreneur, and CEO of companies in Finance, Healthcare, and Aerospace Advanced Materials, Larraine Segil created the first consulting firm in the area of Strategic Partnering and Alliances. 20 years later she merged her firm with Vantage Partners LLC, Experts in Negotiation, to create the world's leading consultancy in Partnering and Negotiation.

Having authored 8 books, written 14 songs and 3 children's books, taught Executive Education to senior technology executives at Caltech for 24 years, served on the World Health Organization WHO International Board, as well as on the Board of a Fortune 200 company, Larraine decided, upon selling out of Vantage Partners, to create a methodology that took her Intellectual Property in Strategy and Partnering, and applied it to the area of Mentoring and Executive Coaching.

Never having had a mentor or executive coach herself, she set up three endowment funds at the institutions that had educated her, and applied her proprietary Mentoring Process to the women she chose from there, and to whom she gave both money and mentoring. They called themselves, The Larraine Segil Scholars.
