Abigail Baker has worked across production, radio spots, live events, conferences, corporate promos, audiobooks, podcasts, instructional videos, and everything in between. She cut her teeth in the management consulting arena and has extensive experience doing instructional design in the digital learning space where she has created D&I courses for virtual learners and other corporate curricula.
Her previous experience included working in-house at a boutique IT consulting company to head up human resources, talent management, organizational development, operations, and communications. Abigail harnessed the power of connection, finding your “why,” and intentional communication to fuel employee engagement, drive DEI efforts, and foster organizational agility that helped carry the company through the transition to a virtual environment. Under her own boutique consulting and communications brand, CENTIENT IMAGINE
, Abigail works with executives to craft stories that become the backbone of organizational culture shifts, communications initiatives, DEI programs/audits, and workforce training.
Abigail is a firm believer in the power that organizations have to shape society and impact the lives of their people daily. She views this function as an ecosystem that must be cultivated versus dictated. The command and control way of working is finding itself to be an outdated practice, and modern technology has ushered in an age of transparency, knowledge sharing, and active collaboration in the workplace. Over the years, her passion has grown to support this new way of working, and she is very involved in building this body of knowledge by speaking and writing about empowering employees to bring their best selves to the workplace.
