Cynthia Spraggs

President and CEO at Virtira & Sales Beacon

Following years of experience, in 2011 Cynthia Spraggs took over as the CEO of Virtira – a virtual company focused on helping virtual teams work more efficiently. She is the author of How to Work from Home and Actually Get Sh*t Done.

Cynthia Spraggs was never cut out to work in an office. She grew up in a small town on Vancouver Island in Canada, and while her business school classmates were finding jobs in downtown cubicles, she happily worked her way through university in the BC Parks Branch and on fishing boats. She wrote her master’s thesis on telecommuting while working with global tech companies. Upon the completion of her MBA in 1993, she vowed never to work in an office again –– and has kept that promise ever since.


About

Having worked remotely for so many years, Cynthia knows how being in remote locations can affect virtual workers. And with 25 years of experience leading complex projects with countless virtual teams around the world, she found behaviors, habits, and communication patterns that hold teams back from achieving peak performance. Taking those patterns and behaviors into account Cynthia worked with leading project managers to develop proprietary online methodologies and put them into action.

In 2011 she took over as the CEO of Virtira – a virtual company focused on helping virtual teams work more efficiently. Her consultants and team members are located globally, and while many of them work from very remote, rural areas, they are connecting and leading teams around the world.
