My guest: Or Avni
Or Avni was born in sunny Israel. After graduating high-school she served in the IDF for almost 5 years, being the first woman in her position as operational management officer in a battle squadron, earning an award for performance management during the first Gulf War.
Later she acquired education in the field of marketing, advertising and senior financial management from TEL AVIV university.
Or had few leading positions in leading companies which all shared the same turnaround transformations, from loss to profit in short periods of time.
Her positions included:
- ACE hardware Group
Position: The Head of the Marketing and a board member. Or’s work was acknowledged by Globes business Magazine (2004) for innovative strategic service named: S.O.ACE,
(Sale Emergency Services Support 24/7). Extensive work was done on branding and increasing the company’s worth.
- New-Pharm Drugstores Ltd (Drugstores chain, specializing in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics etc.)
Position: Marketing VP and a board member. Or doubled the net worth of the company brand in 2.5 years, one of the most celebrated turnaround successes in the Israeli market.
- In Design (leading home design and styling group in Israel).
Position: Marketing VP and board member. Creating Turnaround for renewed interest and growth of the chain overall and establishing 4 successful design chain stores.
Position: Business Development and Project Manager. Strategy & Business Development of multi-disciplined PCOS Clinic in Ichilov Hospital.
Her work was characterized by financial growth, improved performance and turning losing business into a profitable one – that’s why she called her own consulting agency “Turnaround”.
In 2013, the Turnaround Consulting Agency was established, aimed for creating turnarounds in companies and individuals alike, leading to excellence and self-fulfillment.
The turning point –
Few years ago, Or had experienced a multi-crisis in her life that changed it forever. The situation was so complex and fragile, she didn’t know what to do or where to start. Her personal life had shattered in one moment. She got to know, firsthand, how fast can you go from bliss to despair – and vice versa.
A car accident led to the loss of one of the twins Or was pregnant with, leading to a long maternity care at the hospital for the sake of keeping the second baby safe and well until the delivery. Being discharged, she learned that her beloved husband got unexpected cardiac arrest in the age of only 38. Unsuccessful revival efforts led to a coma. The doctors said he had 1 % chance to survive …But the thought of losing her husband and best friend was overwhelming and her refusal to accept the fact that there’s nothing to be done led to creative and groundbreaking solutions, miraculous recovery which left all the medical world amazed. These challenges made her understand that perspective of anything is possible, grit and creativity creates breakthrough solutions beyond imagination.
Her experience taught her that the human spirit is the key to overcome acute situations, we all can find our way through any turmoil: personal, financial or health crisis.
The human spirit can win against all odds and the power of the mind – it became the instrument Or uses with the companies and individuals she consults, programming for success, self-assurance, balance and joy.
She acquired this knowledge while juggling her “day job” as senior executive with learning and practicing to be certified medical coach at night. This fusion became the core of Turnaround Consulting Agency. When best results are achieved by best personal and professional performance.
Or’s Philosophy and turnaround state of mind
The acknowledgment of the power laying within the human spirit overwhelmed Or and she’s been exploring this wondrous world ever since, acquiring diploma of an Authorized medical coach that gave her tools and unique integrative perspective that she implements in her business approach.

In her work at Turnaround Consulting Agency, Or is applying her knowledge both in the personal and the business world, always emphasizing the human factor, aiming to create the best state of the human mind, leading to prosperity both in professional and personal life.
The holistic approach Or takes to business hailed by both companies achieving turnarounds in their activities and by individuals turning their life to a state of bliss and satisfaction.
