Lisa’s innate ability to teach has served marketers and agencies by benefiting their bottom line.  Since 2001 she has worked directly with clients counseling them on agency reviews including: Aruba Tourism, Ben & Jerry's, Exxon Mobil, Panera Bread (to name a few), resulting in long-term client-agency partnerships.  Throughout her 20+ year career, she’s an advocate for client-agency relationships that yield results: smAARt partnerships = better work = positive ROI.  

In addition to her role as a search consultant, she has co-founded a new business service center called Access Confidential in 2005, assisting hundreds of agencies with new business prospecting by putting science behind the art of new business and helping new business executives to “avoid the pitch!”
