William Coble, Global Services

“As the Global Service Manager for pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline, I had the distinct pleasure to hire and collaborate with Lea-Ann to grow our service from a couple of hundred minutes a month to over one million minutes a month in less than 12 months.

Lea-Ann took a vague marketing idea of what we wanted to achieve and made it real. We started with no strategic or tactical marketing processes. Through Lea-Ann’s drive to deliver value, expertise, and know-how, she created a strategy that connected our tactical efforts that she also helped define in order for us to deliver successfully a new training modality, “virtual classroom.”

Her professionalism and 120% contribution made it possible within time and budget. I would only do it again if she was working alongside of me.”

- William Coble, Global Services

Working with Lea-Ann, we were able to rapidly develop a more focused market positioning for our services. She was able to quickly understand our vision, our history, and our current position and help us devise a strategic marketing plan for moving forward. Her questions and the processes that she introduced us to helped us better understand ourselves at the same time that she gained an understanding of us.  — Bill Ruchte, Technology Executive

A facilitator of strategic approach workshops she calls Advisory Panels, Lea-Ann provides guided experiences designed to help teams work on customized projects within a work-session environment.

Harness the collective experiences of your team

Ranging from 1 week to 3 months in length, the Advisory Panel Workshops harness the collective experiences of different groups from across your network of employees, customers, business partners, and/or industry experts. Aimed at solving current marketing challenges within a work-session environment, Lea-Ann creates a set of customized experiences designed for internal collaboration.

Together, the Advisory Panel:

  • Sizes the needs and values of your customers
  • Outlines what sets your organization or products apart
  • Defines the exact perception desired and develop the messaging (talking points) that will motivate a response
  • Determines what types of marketing materials should be used

The length of the program (1 week – 3 months) dictates the depth of the assessment, and the quality of the outcome.
