What it’s like to work with me….

  • Ivar Vatne

    Group CFO at BillerudKorsnäs

    Lisa brings a wealth of experience, perspective and creativity which benefited everyone, regardless of where they sat in the organization. She brought to the table more than her role as a Communications Director - and she really brings a holistic perspective to any discussion she engages in. It was a pleasure to be part of the sustainability journey which she masterminded to drive the reputation of the Arla business. Lisa operates with an incredible level of energy, integrity, tenacity and value add in everything she touches. She is a great asset to any board and I highly recommend her as trusted advisor as well as functional lead.

    Founder & CEO, Water Club

    Lisa has provided invaluable advice and creativity for my business, from articulating its purpose to testing my sustainability credentials. She has provided me with the framework from which to think more accurately about why I set up the Water Club, how I run it and what difference I can make. This in turn has led me to develop a more aligned business strategy, where all areas lead back to my key beliefs that underpin the business. Also, her communications finesse has enabled me to contribute to important issues and confidently articulate my point of view leading to sharp and compelling content. Lisa is brilliant to work with and while pushing me in my thinking, she makes the process feel seamless, supportive and a pleasure to contribute to. I can now see and feel how we make a difference!

    One key area where we have worked together has been Brexit with all its complexities and nuances. Lisa has navigated through these tricky waters skilfully and diplomatically.

    I can thoroughly recommend Lisa. Not only is she great fun, she works very hard to support all those around her. A real asset to our industry.

    I have known Lisa for a number of years and have respected her views. Lisa is one of the top communicators in the food industry, her tact and skill at managing sometimes challenging situations is inspiring. I have always turned to Lisa for support and advice when working on food related clients. Lisa's skills could translate into other industries and I can think of a number of companies who should be beating a path to Lisa's door to improve their communications with their stakeholders.

Her common sense approach and ability to get things done is truly inspiring.

    Lisa is a real asset to any business.

    I have worked with Lisa for the past 6 years and can say that she is a top flight operator. She has significant commercial understanding as well as integrated communications and sustainability into Arla’s corporate and consumer brands.

    Lisa has step-changed Arla's corporate communication in the UK during some historic years of growth for the business. I can thoroughly recommend Lisa as a top-level comms professional to think, create and deliver with.

    Lisa approached me to become a trustee of Target Ovarian Cancer through a mutual connection. I went on to become a trustee and later Chair of the charity. Over the years that we sat on the board together I had extensive experience of Lisa's strategic thinking and business acumen. In a nutshell, Lisa has a fantastic ability to see around corners and, as a result, to develop strategic plans and provide strategic insight that really do make a significant impact. She is extremely clear thinking and always gets straight to the heart of an opportunity or issue. There have been so many occasions when I have thought 'I wish I could have been so succinct or seen it from that angle'...Importantly, Lisa is a businesswoman not just a communications expert. She is also an absolute delight to be on a team with - fun, warm, collegiate, inspirational, clever, perceptive, firm and fantastic. Lisa is a huge asset to any organisation wanting to add a dynamic, experienced leadership team member.
