Lisa “gets it” as to how to ask the right questions and draw out the key learning messages. She’s a subject expert on her own, so she knows where the value is in interviewing others. I admire her talent.

Her unique insights on what it takes to thrive as a modern marketer inspired the packed audience.

Having read Lisa’s books and articles, I know her to be a thought leader in the fields of strategic marketing and mindful leadership. She synthesizes concepts from cutting-edge business practices as well as Eastern philosophies and brings them to the workplace. Lisa cares deeply for modern marketers and advocates for them to be more effective by using these approaches.

Samantha Hartley

Marketing Consultant

As executives, we were spending nearly half of our time sorting out customer misunderstandings and internal communications problems, and very little time on planning. As a result, we were missing out on six and seven figure business opportunities. “As we expanded abroad, we used tribal knowledge to communicate our culture. This required way too much micro-management.After working with Lisa and her team, we now announce and track our strategic goals on a quarterly basis, and people pick pieces of those that they’ll help the company do. By linking our strategy and employee development through the Personal Strategic Plan process, we saw a direct impact on the bottom line.Collection time has gone from 75 days down to 45 days, and our CFO was featured in Inc. Magazine for our innovative cash management strategies.
