About Kosmenko & Co.
We are creating a world where business puts people first. Kosmenko & Co. provides action-oriented learning experiences for professionals changing the game of business.
Founder Kimberly Kosmenko was an early practitioner in sustainable business, and experienced the raw edges that are exposed when organizations make change. Many professionals tried to muscle through the challenge. Watching numerous change initiative fail – while talented leaders succumbed to burnout – ignited a spark for Kimberly to find a better way.
Kosmenko & Co. emerged as the answer: a consulting and training practice to maximize the positive impact of people and organizations solving our society’s most pressing challenges. We provide advising and skill-building in areas that most professionals simply haven’t been trained in: sustainability, navigating organizational change, building strong professional networks, and making smart business decisions rooted in purpose and values.
Kosmenko & Co. builds from Kimberly Kosmenko’s success advising organizations across the spectrum of Fortune 500s, global institutions, social enterprise, federal agencies, and startups. She has worked with United Nations Federal Credit Union, the National Center for Atmospheric Research, Humana, Allstate, State Street, Facebook, Walmart suppliers, and many others.

Kimberly Kosmenko’s workshop challenged me to re-think the way I viewed professional relationship building. The hands-on approach that the workshop took was engaging and pushed me to step outside of my comfort zone. I now have tangible goals that I can work towards and a sense of confidence about leaving the academic realm.

As a software engineer, this workshop helped me thinking strategically about how I network to build my career. The workshop was action-oriented and, by the end, I felt like I had my own personal plan for building my network. I left feeling energized!

Kimberly Kosmenko is a phenomenal public speaking coach. She helped me prepare to give a talk in front of a larger audience than I ever had before. We worked together to nail down my content, identify and improve my delivery and presentation, and focus on how to stay "in the relaxation zone" before and during my talk. Come day-of, I felt confident and ready thanks to Kimberly. I would definitely hire Kimberly again and look forward to working with her again soon.

I work with one the largest financial cooperatives in the US and when my organization wanted to implement its vision of carbon neutrality, I hired Kimberly Kosmenko for insight. Kimberly worked with me to help us create our sustainability vision and plan through a series of interviews and workshops. Kimberly’s deep knowledge as well as her dynamic personality not only helped me shape our goals, but also made it fun. Kimberly had the answers. As my team executes on that plan – with Kimberly’s support – I’m confident our organization will reach our goals for sustainability leadership.
