Rimma is a futurist, a facilitator, strategist and the CEO of DIALOGUE, an interdisciplinary strategic advisory and think tank that helps companies find the shortest, clearest path to their most ambitious goals. Over her 20-year career, she has served as a strategic advisor and thought partner to CEOs of emerging businesses and Fortune 500 organizations (including Google, Apple, Levi's, Kaiser Permanente, Tata) focusing on catalyzing cross-sector, human connected transformation and intelligent innovation.

Rimma began her career at Deloitte Consulting’s Human Capital practice, where she focused on M&A and large-scale transformation, before providing in-house industry advising in fields including healthcare, consumer business, and telecommunications. She took a brief hiatus from the business world to advise contemporary art collectors. Working closely with artists allowed Rimma to observe interdisciplinary conversations that would emerge as “innovation” in business 10 years later. This shift sparked the realization that bringing unique cultural and political insights into a corporate setting could have a transformative impact, leading her to found DIALOGUE.

Rimma is an experienced speaker, interviewer and facilitator who has presented before Fortune 500 companies, their boards, and at global conferences. She channels her cross-sector expertise into a unique ability to synthesize disparate ideas, methodologies and practices.
