David Lunts – Executive Director of Housing & Land, Greater London Authority

Lisa is one extraordinarily motivated, focussed and energetic individual. She has massive talents as a thinker, doer and motivator that make her a stand-out leader of teams, projects and partnerships. Show More Her tremendous achievements in transforming the fledgling Future of London non-for-profit into a powerful and sustainable organisation with genuine senior level reach and influence have won plaudits all across London. I have had the pleasure of working with her very closely as chair of the Future of London board and rate her multi-faceted skills extremely highly. Whether as a leader of projects and teams, an adviser, a mentor, a chair/ convenor or a facilitator, she covers the bases with an intelligence, passion, style and wit that is always stimulating to work with and I have no hesitation in recommending her.

David Joyce – Director of Planning & Regeneration, LB Camden

Lisa provided an excellent facilitation approach for Camden’s Business Board Away Day. She brought great energy, enthusiasm and strategic perspective to an important set of discussions … Show More around priorities for Camden businesses over the next year [including] how Business Board members can use their collective lobbying power to achieve shared priorities… She is particularly adept at ensuring that all stakeholders get to have a say and she is excellent at timing provocations to ensure that alternative perspectives are heard and considered. Lisa’s energy and approach ensured that the Camden Business Board is in great shape for the year ahead with a clear programme and set of priorities.

Simon Day – Creative Director, D3 Ltd (Land Rover G4 Challenge)

On the most recent programme Lisa ran for me, she was partly tasked with approaching and negotiating with foreign governments and in-country agencies in order to gain high-level permissions for our programme to run… Show More This role is not anything that can be left to chance, so requires high levels of planning, translation of critical documents, a full understanding of political and corporate structures and most critically, a balance of when to speak and when to listen and learn. This is an environment where things seldom flow smoothly, so adaptability, quick recovery and the ability to view things from the reverse angle are skills that can turn ‘dead-end negotiations’ into successful ones. Lisa was irrepressible at this, and to her credit succeeded in attaining high-level agreements in Russia, Mongolia and China.

Karen Coshof – Executive Producer, Global Warming, the Signs & the Science (PBS)

I’ve worked with Lisa on a variety of projects. All I can say is “wow” – this is the most consummate professional project manager/ communicator I’ve worked with. Show More She has an innate ability to interact seamlessly with all levels of an organization – from front-line workers to CEO. She quickly understands the issues and complexities of any given challenge and can solve virtually any problem thrown at her, fast. Lisa is also a gifted writer, who can make the dullest, most complicated issue interesting and – more to the point – understandable. She’s fast, brilliant, and funny – hire her.
