Elizabeth Cumby, MBA
President, Cumby Consulting, LLC
Liz Cumby is president of Cumby Consulting, a Med-Tech training group delivering optimal performance for staff and physicians on emerging medical technologies.
As a former Division 1 athlete, Liz approaches her work with persistence and determination to create the win for the team. Her engaging-team-oriented style defines her approach to training. Liz works with the company executives to understand the strategic business goals, and then, using her custom methodology, builds a relevant, innovative and targeted learning system that caters to all learning styles to enable the team to reach their desired goal.
For the last ten years, Liz has developed world-class, highly scalable training systems. She can lay the foundation starting with essentially no training programs and a brand new sales team to build effective, engaging learning programs using various modalities (e-learning, hands-on lab/exercises, in-person, and distance learning). Her passion is educating medical professionals by making complex material digestible, resulting in meeting company strategic objectives while ensuring patient safety.
Liz herself has a learning disability that has created her enthusiasm for ensuring that each member of the team learns according to his/her unique learning style. She is certified as an Achieve Global Facilitator, giving her access to a range of facilitation skills and adult learning concepts that work with different learning styles.
Liz also received the 2007 Mizuho OSI Overachievement Award while working at Mizuho OSI. This award, given yearly to only one employee, recognized Liz’s impact on the productivity of the sales team since they were able to generate revenue three times faster by reducing their time to first sale from nine months to just three months. The company-wide learning management system she implemented and the online learning course content she developed made it possible to reuse training courses from year to year and thereby reduced in-house training time and expenses dramatically.
As the creative force behind the training programs offered by Cumby Consulting, Liz develops custom sales team and physician training programs, as well as faculty/key opinion leader and clinical trial education programs for early stage companies. Cumby Consulting provides full training services for all medical specialties. Clients have included diagnostic, disruptive surgical technologies, biologic, robotic and genomic companies in the areas of OB/GYN, orthopedics, spine, aesthetics and cardiology.
Liz holds an MBA and a BBA (Marketing and Management) from the University of Kentucky, Lexington.
