The Soundboard Story
After successfully exiting two entrepreneurial ventures in vastly different fields, Richard Magid uncovered his passion: working with business owners to help them define and achieve their goals. With this inspiration, he founded Soundboard in 2000 and set the company’s roots in collaborative leadership groups and business coaching. Soundboard became a trusted ally for business leaders by creating a safe environment for them to share, learn, grow and support one another. Over time, demand grew for Soundboard to bring that same positive and powerful support inside its clients’ companies through coaching, consulting and facilitation services.
