"I partnered with Lisa on a complex new market introduction and was impressed with every aspect of what she delivered. She always treated me like a customer and helped my team create solutions to better serve our customers. She has a unique ability to get up to speed quickly and led us to solutions like she had worked for our company and in our industry for years. She transitioned easily from applying tools and processes to brainstorming solutions to playing the role of a senior advisor.

“Lisa Thompson is a big strategic thinker with the ability to develop executable strategies. I learned a lot from her about measuring the true profitability of customers by assessing the cost to serve customers. She is very client-focused and driven by deriving real outcomes for her clients. Lisa is one of the few consultants where you will see a measurable payback on the work she does.”
- RON CHASE, ENTREPRENEUR, OWNER OF FROG STREET PRESS
“I have worked with Lisa, first as her employer, later as a colleague and dear friend, for two decades. While most of us build a reputation for expertise in working with ideas or in working with people, Lisa’s unusual strength is in managing both simultaneously. Her concern for the welfare of clients and colleagues makes them more open to what can be difficult but necessary advice to hear. Her commitment to finding the best answer for her client is rooted in a desire to be a positive force for the benefit of others. The result is someone whose combination of insight and honesty is extraordinary!”
