Martha Carrigan is the Chairman & CEO of
Big Shoes Network
(BSN). She enjoys strategic marketing and business development.
She connects creative talent with opportunities and coaches others on the
'next steps' of their professional and personal pursuits. (Her less fun roles:
operations and paying bills - but loves to check off those boxes). An often-requested
presenter at colleges and professional groups, Martha speaks about creative,
employment and career-related topics. To her, there's nothing more motivating
than hearing, "I found my job through Big Shoes!"
Prior to BSN, Martha served in a variety of marketing and business development
roles in education, non-profit, and IT organizations. BSN's start-up was fed by her
role at ManpowerGroup where she developed, delivered and sold training curriculum,
and generated multimillion-dollar business partnerships in software and business
services to local, national and international clients.
She earned a B.A. in communication from UW—Milwaukee, a Certificate in Interactive
Marketing from De Paul University and is a Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW).
Martha has served on advisory and non-profit boards including: AIGA Wisconsin, Madison
College, Marquette University Business Marketing, USO Wisconsin, WCTC and is an ambassador
