I was recenlty asked by my peers, who made the most impact on me at the NAPO New Orleans 2013 conference. My answer was very easy...
The bar was set for my first time NAPO conference at a Pre-Conference Presentation called, "Speak Up! Deliver Killer Presentations" with Lisa Montanaro and Monica Ricci. They were amazing! I almost wish I would have seen them at the end, because nothing compared to them for me...sorry Keynote Speakers.
These two ladies "spoke up" and delivered a "KILLER PRESENTATION"!
Lisa is an enthusiastic and creative problem solver. I highly recommend her and will be, in fact, recommending her to one of my own clients in the near future.
Lisa is an extraordinary professional who is responsive, reliable and a great return on investment. Lisa lives up to and surpasses expectations by being a very good listener, organized, detailed and creative. Her law background is unusually unique and one of the reasons why Lisa works well in providing solutions when you it need it most.
I am the President of Literacy Orange, and our Board of Directors were pleased to have Lisa Montanaro give a presentation to us.
Lisa covered tasks such as Ice Breakers to in depth discussion of our work. We also reviewed our strengths and weaknesses. What did expect to get from being on this Board? What do we expect to bring to this Board? This led to reviewing what tasks that we were successful at what we needed to improve on. She also helped with our Strategic Plan.
We also reviewed holding Board Members accountable.
After Lisa completed her presentation, our Board was energized to get our Captial Campaign going!
I would not hesitate to ask Lisa to come to your Board for a presentation. You will come away with insights you never had before!
I recently attended Lisa's seminar "The Organized Entrepreneur". It was an excellent session and Lisa is an extraordinary presenter. She offers practical tips on how to organize your life, your business and your home. Lisa's information is of great value to me, both personally and professionally.
I first met Lisa at the Interior Redesign Industry Specialists (IRIS) annual conference in Denver, CO where she presented a seminar on how to add Organizing to your Redesign Business offerings. I was truly impressed with Lisa's knowledge, professionalism and energy. I then participated in Lisa's six-week DECIDE to be Organized on-line group couching program. My goal was two-fold in that I was looking for tips for my own personal organizing challenges as well as looking to gain more expertise to pass on to my clients. I found the six-week program to be very beneficial on both fronts. Sharing stories and challenges with others on the call helped to inspire me to tackle the things I had been putting off. In turn, being able to offer encouragement and understanding to others on the call was rewarding as well. As I go through my old boxes of 'stuff' or work with others going through the same process, I continually ask myself Lisa's three key questions - "Do I Love it? Do I Use it? Do I need it?" If not - then out it goes! Thank you Lisa for your inspiration and for offering this on-line coaching program. It has been an eye-opening and rewarding journey!
I have had the pleasure and honor of being a participant in Lisa's workshop presentations, in which I have always learned a great deal, walked away with much more value than I had imagined possible in such a short period of time, and continued to receive value from Lisa, as she continues to make available to me the tools, information and wisdom of her wonderful integrative work! She is truly the BEST!
We have used Lisa numerous times for training and coaching services for our employees. She is so popular with our managers, that some of our departments have contracted with her in order to do training specifically for their staff members. She has also proved invaluable in providing coaching sessions for one of our departments where there was a debilitating relationship between the manager and staff. Her efforts, while not completely solving the problems, did go a long way in beginning a process to get that department back on track. I would not think twice before contracting with her again.
Lisa's expertise at helping a key employee get organized has been invaluable. She also did a presentation to our agency alliance with over 30 people that was extremely well received. I would certainly recommend her to anyone that feels an employee, or even their office, needs organizational expertise.
As Director of Pace Law School's New Directions: Practical Skills for Returning to Law Practice program, I retained Lisa to do a presentation on Staying Organized During a Career Transition. Lisa gave a superb presentation and we are bringing her back to do a presentation for our next session!! She was highly professional, thoroughly knowledgeable and completely engaging in her presentation. Our participants, who are attorneys in transition back into the paid workforce, were delighted with Lisa and are all energized and motivated to implement Lisa's very practical suggestions. I give Lisa my highest recommendation.
I hired Lisa to organize my children's playroom and soon found myself wanting her to organize my home. I have a business that I operate from home and with two small children and a mother's life to oversee I needed to get my things in order. Lisa is very astute. She gets to the heart of the matter without judgement. She has taught me skills so I can stay organized.
To give a small example: I recently sold my dryer when I moved to a friend. The friend called me a week later wanting to know what a light on the dryer meant. I said, you know what I didn't give you the manual...let me get it and I'll look it up! When I came back to the phone so quickly she said you found the manual that fast!
When I went to the Medicaid office with my mother's papers, they said I was very prepared for the application process!
Lisa is personable, knowledgeable, and knows how to find the right system personalized for you in addition to helping you get the right products and people to install them!!
Thanks so much Lisa!
