"Lori provided great insights into corporate sponsorship, and she was an awesome presenter – charismatic, engaging and most generous in sharing her valuable nuggets 😊 Knowledge learned will be applied to growing our small, but mighty nonprofit and as we will soon embark on strategic planning, I will be sure to include corporate sponsorship as an opportunity for new revenue."
-Jacqui Baxter Rollins, Executive Director, Partnership of Montgomery County
"I am happy to say that thanks to Lori’s expertise and training, our sales rep has been very successful—despite the challenges of the pandemic—and last month for the first time in a very long time, the underwriting revenue line exceeded its budgeted projections. Lori knows her stuff. She is a strong, capable consultant and a very hard worker. She delivers on what she promises. I highly recommend her."
- Trina Cutter, President & CEO, PBS Western Reserve
"Lori is an extraordinary collaborator who delivers results. Her "outside-the-box” creativity, thorough research, and diligent attention to detail…is surpassed only by her abilities to ask great questions, incorporate feedback, and develop customized engagement strategies. As a result of her work and advocacy, Great Lakes Theater activated new sponsors in the first year of its partnership with Growth Owl, LLC."
