"Empowering authentic business leadership and communication"

VASTA's Business and Corporate Consulting (BizCore) Interest Group is a community for anyone who either works in business and/or wants to see themselves as a business. Whether it’s a side-job or your whole job, you are welcome here!

  1. Creatively deliver these services while maintaining the integrity of our professions and upholding the overall mission of VASTA.
  2. Maintain an ongoing dialogue among the various business areas, the arts industry, and academia so we may be able to utilize empirical teaching methods with those who employ our services.

BizCore holds monthly training sessions which are open to all members of VASTA. For more information about the training sessions, please email the co-chairs.

From Chairs, Thea May and Cliff Miller:

BizCore offers VASTA members an important resource to draw upon and develop their business and coaching practice:



Lighthouse sessions are 90-minute learning sessions held on Zoom and hosted by fellow VASTA members. They cover a wide variety of topics. From setting up as an independent practice, to translating your practice for the business world. Whether your clients are business people, artists, or other professional speakers, you can learn skills and share challenges in these wonderful vibrant sessions.


These events are open to all VASTA members and will be announced through the VASTA newsletter and e-blasts. If you would like to extend your involvement beyond participation in these events, you may offer to host your own Lighthouse Session in 2020.  Please email us!

We look forward to seeing you at one of the above events.
