Who We Are

As dynamic and creative senior-level corporate marketing executives and entrepreneurs with more than 40 years of combined talent and experience, Sherry  and Bob  Hartnett have a passion for sharing marketing, mentoring, and leadership knowledge and expertise to successfully empower others to grow and develop in their professional careers. Over the years we have guided teams in many for-profit and not-for-profit industries to successful results and numerous awards. Dr. Sherry Hartnett joined academia as a university marketing professor to help prepare students for successful careers and lives. 

We founded Hartnett Academy in Pensacola, Florida, in 2021 because there has never been a better time to take your leadership and organization to a whole new level through high-impact mentoring. And, today's business owners and marketers must be skilled in numerous areas, including mentoring, marketing strategy, digital marketing, social media, content creation, analytics, engagement, and more.  

As a complement to Sherry's and Bert Thornton's book High Impact Mentoring: A Practical Guide to Creating Value in Other People's Lives, the High Impact Mentoring online course leads you through the process of implementing a mentoring program at your business or organization. 

Our courses are designed for those interested in continuing their education without committing to the time and cost associated with a full degree program. We offer a low-cost, high-value solution with a faster, more effective way to stay relevant in the current market. In addition, people are busy; trying to balance family, work, play, health, faith, and community. We set out to find a solution, and that's why we created our affordable, flexible online classes, so you can set yourself apart by investing in our learning opportunities.  With our experience, education, certifications, and skills, we are uniquely qualified to offer practical courses to prepare you for the business world, helping make you industry-ready from day one. Along the way, we've been delighted to see our students and clients prosper and flourish. As lifelong learners, we want our courses to help others enjoy learning as much as we do.
