Shelby Wolpa, People Leadership Expert

About Me

I’ve been a people leader at four venture-backed companies that scaled to unicorn+ status 
where I built and led the people team through hypergrowth.

I advise CEOs, People Leaders, and Venture Capital Firms to bring those learnings to companies

around the world.  I specialize in helping Series A to C companies scale their people functions

while creating world-class cultures.

Client industries range across Enterprise SaaS, Fin Tech, Health Tech, eCommerce, 
On-Demand, People Tech, Data Analytics, Cyber Security, Real Estate, and more.

Clients are supported by top VCs, including Accel, Lightspeed Venture Partners, 
Sequoia Capital, Forerunner Ventures, Felicis Ventures, 
SemperVirens Venture Capital, and more.

Areas of Expertise

People Leadership Advisement

I advise organizations on all aspects of their people and culture strategy. Our work can include each moment of the employee journey, such as global hiring, onboarding, compensation and benefits, internal communications, manager and employee development, diversity, equity and inclusion, employee engagement, performance management, and compliance.

Distributed Work

As more and more organizations build fully remote or hybrid working models, I can advise on distributed work communication and collaboration norms, centralized tools to enable a highly engaged and productive workforce, and other remote-first best practices. I bring years of experience building a world-class culture at one of the largest fully distributed companies in the world and 40+ clients since.

People Technology

I advise people technology founders as a product advisor in areas such as product development, sales, marketing, and customer success. I also support my corporate clients on their HR tech stack decisions as they scale, having been the people tech SaaS decision-maker at four high-growth unicorns. 

Remote Work Playbooks
Learn How to Build a Thriving Distributed Workforce
I built these playbooks for companies that:

Want to build best-in-class people 
programs but don’t know where to start

Want to use my tactical secrets to 
leapfrog the maturity of their people programs, moving faster and making fewer mistakes

Are self-starters and can use

the playbook as a guide to build programs internally

Are feeling stuck and need fresh ideas
