Victoria Schmidt

Business Strategist

My Story

My lifelong passion for business began as many do, with numerous entrepreneurial dabbles throughout childhood and young adulthood. Rock museums, magic shows, kids’ activity clubs and online fudge and cupcake shops were the adventures that defined large parts of my youth and seeded the fertile ground for my future business pursuits.

I subsequently began my professional journey in business strategy upon the completion of my Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (Business) degree from the elite institution Cornell University in New York. From that point forward I have served my entire career as a professional business consultant and advisor.

Starting out with global business advisory firm Ernst & Young and moving on to accumulate experience in best practice businesses across a wide variety of industries - including years with Oracle, Fonterra, Kraft, Sony and Black & Decker - I finally established my own consultancy Silver Bullet Group in 2001.

My Work

Today I am fortunate to work across a variety of innovative projects spanning multiple sectors and geographies. When needed I also leverage a deep and broad network of specialist consultants across the globe to provide expert insights and capacity.

Aside from my client work, I regularly negotiate a wide variety of strategic, leadership, risk, financial and governance issues through my active membership on numerous Boards of Directors.




Here is a small sample of some recent clients I have served to give you a feel for the types of business growth strategies we regularly put into place.
