A unique ability to combine commercial intelligence and practically with empathy and humanity.

Lisa James – The Wentworth Collective

I have known Lisa-Marie since 2014 which has been an absolute privilege.

When you work with Lisa-Marie you’re gaining the wealth of experience she brings through many years working at the sharp end of business.

Lisa-Marie is knowledgeable, commercially minded, empathetic and gets the job done.

She also has a quick and highly intelligent mind and has the ability to cut right through the fluff, get to the point which means when you work together, you are confident you are working in the most time efficient and results driven way.

We recently collaborated on a large scale, logistically complex, global partner conference and working with Lisa-Marie, and her team, was an absolute joy.

This is due to Lisa-Marie’s unique ability to combine commercial intelligence and practically with empathy and humanity. We designed an event which met both the business and participant needs. An often challenging goal, made easier by Lisa-Marie’s breadth of experience, support and input.

Lisa-Marie continues to be my first point of call when it comes to business advice. I trust Lisa-Marie’s expert guidance delivered in her straight talking, no nonsense approach . She gets ‘it’ and has advised on numerous campaigns which have resulted in tangible business growth results for The Wentworth Collective.

I have no hesitation in recommending Lisa-Marie for both business and personal growth and  I look forward to future collaborations.

I gravitate to her voice of reason when I am unsure, and when I feel my decisions are about to be clouded by emotions.

Jessica Seah – Marketing professional

Lisa-Marie has been an exceptional mentor to me. I have had the great pleasure of working with her for several years, during which her leadership and guidance was crucial to my professional and personal growth.

Lisa-Marie is clear, accurate and to-the-point with her advice, she balances that beautifully without being overly prescriptive. She listens keenly and encourages me to be the best version of myself rather than try to mould me to her perspective. I gravitate to her voice of reason when I am unsure, and when I feel my decisions are about to be clouded by emotions. She is a keen advocate for self-awareness and believes whole-heartedly in empowering people.

Lisa-Marie is assertive but never overbearing, she has a standout sense of judgment that is well balanced with commercial objectives and the need to play to cultural nuances, which has endeared her to senior stakeholders she has worked with around the world. She also has great foresight, anticipating challenges before they take hold.

In all, Lisa-Marie has had a profound impact on me, she has inadvertently created a list of qualities I, myself and all other aspiring leaders should hope to emulate. I’d like to think my path ahead is guided by the integrity wisdom and balance that she has imparted. Her steadfast support has been invaluable, and I am grateful to have gained a trustworthy supporter, a confidant, an advocate and an ally. It also helps that she has a wicked sense of deadpan humour.

Her attention to detail is exceptional and on top of all that, she is a joy to work with on every level.

Richard Dale – Slick Productions

My company, Slick Productions, has had the privilege to work alongside Lisa-Marie over the last three years on some prestigious and important events in Europe and Asia. 

In all my 40 years in the production  industry, I would find it hard to identify a more qualified individual, that had the ability to be clear about the vision for the projects in hand, and lead from the front whilst motivating and encouraging all of us involved in the delivery process.

Clear thinking, planning and communication are all hallmarks of this exceptional, hard working person. Her attention to detail is exceptional and on top of all that, she is a joy to work with on every level.

I would commend Lisa-Marie and her unique skill sets to all.

The sessions have been transformative. She left me feeling more confident, with a plan as to where I’m going.

Katie

The sessions over three months I had with Lisa-Marie have been transformative. She provided a safe and supportive space to explore my next steps and what was mentally blocking me. She left me feeling more confident, with a plan as to where I’m going and some practical exercises to help me achieve that.

I will be recommending Lisa-Marie! I think she provides a non-judgmental and supportive space, with a great toolkit of ideas, exercises and tips to help the growth mindset.

She brought awareness and logical interpretations to challenges that I struggled to articulate.

Marianna

I came to Lisa-Marie during a time when I struggled to find clarity in my life. She brought awareness and logical interpretations to challenges that I struggled to articulate. Lisa-Marie has shown me compassion, empathy and kindness when I felt at my lowest. She has helped me peel back the layers to discover – and face – my challenges with limiting self-belief. With her guidance, I am learning to rebuild confidence, treat myself with compassion and navigate back to operating from my ‘highest self’.

Lisa-Marie not only asks questions but also guides you by giving you a different perspective.

Bhavisha

Lisa-Marie is good at understanding the issues you are going through by repeating what you have said and clarifying what you have said has been understood the right way. Lisa-Marie not only asks questions but also guides you by giving you a different perspective.

At a TEDx event in 2016, Stacey Flowers talks about the 5 people you need to be happy.

1. Cheerleader – to believe in you when you struggle to believe in yourself
2. Mentor – to point you in the right direction when you’re feeling lost
3. Coach – to take you out of your comfort zone so you can maximise your potential
4. Friend – to hear out your dreams and deepest desires
5. Peer – to keep you focused on the task at hand During the sessions

Lisa-Marie was an anchor for me in each of these five people that Stacey mentions. I would recommend Lisa-Marie. Lisa-Marie not only digs deeper by asking questions but also guides you and makes recommendations on what you can be doing to progress forward.
