Judith D. Hall
Judith D. Hall is an Education Consultant, Coach, Transformational Speaker and author. From 1998 to 2015, she was the owner/manager of three restaurants in Jamaica. Like most business owners, without a business education, she floundered for a few years until she employed a business coach. She worked hard and applied the business strategies she was given and was able to turn things around. Over time, she honed her business education skills and is committed to sharing lessons learned and some very important prerequisites that should be in their arsenal before starting up their businesses.
Judith is the Founder and CEO of Speak. Teach. Coach. Impact! (STCI) and WISH Mindset a non-profit organization dedicated to the transformation and empowerment of women and girls.
She was President of the Association of International Educators (AIE) and worked alongside Mayor DiBlasio, Congressman Major Owen, Congressman Nick Perry and many others on behalf of the beleaguered teachers of the Caribbean Diaspora when they were in danger of being deported. With the help of the Black Institute, a powerful community organization, Judith won many concessions from the NYC Department of Education for her members, the most significant of which was the revocation of the deportation order for nearly 200 teachers.
Judith now sits on the Board of the Black Institute and continues to help with issues of educational, environmental, immigration and pay equity. She resides in New York and is busy pursuing her myriad passions of writing, learning and educating others whether they are small business entrepreneurs or students. In her down time, she can be found curled up with a book in her favorite chair feeding and edifying her mind.
Judith attended Shortwood Teachers College, Jamaica, where she majored in Spanish and Linguistics with a minor in Literature. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of the West Indies, Mona Campus, a Master’s Degree in teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) from Cambridge College, and a Master’s Degree in School Leadership and District Administration from the College of St. Rose in Albany, NYS.
