We had a great call with Katie. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the stationery and gift industry. She provided great input and made suggestions that we will be implementing. She has great connections in the industry. I suggest anyone with questions in the stationery industry to give her a call.
Katie is such a repository of knowledge when it comes to the stationery industry, wholesaling and retailing! In one short call, she gave me a crash course on my startup stationery line and opened her Rolodex of contacts to assist me. I'm so glad I was able to get advice from someone so well respected in the industry that was custom tailored to my needs! I love Clarity for making it possible and I feel empowered to move forward. Thanks Katie!
Katie is a concerned and committed manager with great leadership ability. She is incredibly responsible, motivated and intelligent. As a boss, she gives clear, concise directions and is able to delegate tasks and projects efficiently. She is an engaged and involved manage but does not micro-manage her team. It was a pleasure working for her!
Katie was a member of my team in the Comparative Management Systems (international capstone) class in the MBA program at Loyola Marymount University. She was extremely reliable, organized, hard-working, and provided a great deal of leadership and stability to the team. She was never at a loss for ideas, and yet unlike many creative people, she presented them in a way that did not leave her teammates feeling threatened. Katie was comfortable traveling and working in unfamiliar countries and with unfamiliar people. She was a true professional, even as a student.
Katie was the Communications Director for Murchison & Cumming during part of my time there; I had several opportunities to work directly with her. She was extremely organized and knowledgeable, offering inovative suggestions on marketing. I enjoyed working with her and highly recommend her. She was an asset to Murchison & Cumming and would be an asset at any company.
Katie is a concise communicator, exudes warmth and intelligence, and is a true team player. I truly enjoyed working with Katie at Pillsbury and highly recommend her in her future endeavors.
Katie is a highly competent business developer. Her responsibilities at Pillsbury included representing and offering strategic business development direction to several complex, oftentimes difficult, extremely busy, international-in-scope practices, one of which was our China practice based in Shanghai and involved huge time and language differences as well. She is a holistic, strategic thinker and planner, is very comfortable making decisions to move projects forward, diplomatic yet strong, an adept oral and written communicator and very capable on both a team-based and individual project environment. She is also an excellent mentor, having tacitly and voluntarily played that role to at least two more junior business developers, both of whom are now miles ahead of where they started prior to her mentoring. She is sorely missed.
Katie is creative, conscientious and a real team player. She is excellent at developing a strategy for a project and executing to a successful conclusion.
Katie is responsive, creative and has a strong work-ethic. She is an amiable colleague who is willing to take on assignments and run with them until completion. I have always been impressed with the enthusiasm she brings to her projects and have enjoyed working with her. Katie would be an asset to any organization and I heartily reccomend her.
Katie is a rare and unique individual. She managed a full time career with a busy MBA course load at LMU. In addition, she served as the LMU MBA Student Association President. The President title alone is not what makes Katie great. She is friendly and makes others feel welcome and included. She is intelligent, a great public speaker, and knows how to work well in teams.
I’ve had the opportunity and pleasure to work with Katie Lawler while pursuing my MBA at LMU. As the president of the MBA Student Association, Katie demonstrated natural leadership skills; able to motivate teams of students and faculty alike. Katie is a dynamic, thoughtful and professional individual with great problem solving skills. The comfort level that Katie has with presenting is second only to her great interpersonal skills. Katie truly has a gift for successfully managing teams. Combined with her strong work ethic, Katie would be an asset to any organization professional or otherwise.
