“If you are looking for an individual with passion, commitment and the right contacts to make things happen, then Lisa is your person. We have seen our activity levels increase as a result of our association with Acorn Marketing in a relatively short time and Lisa has been able to tap in to areas of the media where we have not been so successful in the past. No doubt Enterprise Answers and Acorn Marketing will be working together for a long time to come. We will certainly be watching this little acorn grow.” -Grahame Latus – Chief Executive, Enterprise Answers

“I utilised Lisa to facilitate a social media marketing session with representatives from each of our retail stores. I selected Lisa because of her open friendly style and her ability to promptly grasp the areas of most importance to me. I was very impressed with her thorough preparation and feedback from the session was extremely positive. Lisa was quickly able to put the attendees at ease with her manner and get everyone contributing. The group reported back that the sessions were informative, visual and interactive. They came away with lots of new ideas and were quickly able to put in place what they had been taught when they returned to their stores. More importantly they all said that they had really enjoyed the session.” – Jo Ritzema, CEO of WCF
