Lisa Gave Me the Confidence I Needed to Conquer My Fear of Public Speaking!
“I’m a business owner with a common fear, public speaking! This fear does not lend well to building a business, at least not in my industry. I spoke with Lisa at an event that we both attended and told her of my fear. She immediately told me she was willing to work with me. Little did she know my speaking engagement was only 10 days away! She jumped right in as if I was her only client and worked diligently with me for several days. By the time I presented, I was prepared with a presentation that not only flowed well but was interactive with the audience! I pulled it off and was actually complimented on my presentation! It felt so good!! But I truly could not have done it without her coaching and knowledge. She gave me the confidence I needed and coached me all the way! She is awesome at what she does and knows her stuff. I will not hesitate to work with her again. I plan on conquering this fear for good!

Lisa’s Phone Skills Workshop Gave Us a Rapid-Response Tool to Retain Clients & Keep the Interest of Prospects!
“I really liked Lisa’s Coaching method and approach to delivering her phone skills workshop to my organization. She really listened to understand our pain points and tailored her workshop and entire conversation based on what she heard. This collaborative approach is how I partner with my clients too. Lisa provided us some simple blueprints, such as a phone script and vocal awareness, to implement, that provides a rapid return-on-investment. Her workshop enables my team to capture the attention of prospects with a simple “Good morning” and mitigate my risk of losing clients due to inconsistent phone skills. I recommend Lisa to ALL businesses. Her passion and expertise will motivate your team and your brand to grow!”
“Lisa recently called in to our company meeting to do a Phone Skills workshop, but it was so much more than just that! She made all of us consider our company's brand, as well as personal brands, and focused our attention on how we want to be perceived by our clients. The phone skills portion was wonderful as well, since we often get distracted and don't focus on our clients' impressions when they call our office. Thank you so much for your expertise Lisa, it was an invaluable lesson, and re-focused all our attention on our brand as a whole.”
Sondra Lorino, Principal, Parallel Edge, Inc.
Lisa’s Deep Understanding of Branding & IT Helped Elevate our Customer Experience
“Lisa has a deep understanding of branding, marketing and the importance of clear communication and how they impact a company’s image. Her intimate knowledge from two decades’ experience running an IT company, presents a unique offering for MSP owners who are interested in elevating customer service to their clients. Lisa’s phone skills workshop initiated a crucial team discussion (one that we never held before) about how we would like to be perceived by our clients and prospects. I highly recommend any service and support company partner with Lisa.”
Eyal Bishri, President, SimplicIT Technologies
Lisa is an Expert Image Consultant With Significant Focus in the IT World!
“I am happy to recommend Lisa as an expert image consultant in both the personal and corporate realm. She has the rare ability to realize that when you start to think about how you may be perceived by your client, it is just as important as to what you say but how you say it…and that actions speak louder than words.
Rebranding goes beyond appearance and a fresh coat of paint, it truly involves all the stakeholders: clients, employees, vendors and prospects. Her area of focus in the IT world is significant, because IT employees touch clients at moments when their need is often great. From how you answer the phone, through scripting, to how you dress, greet people, show empathy on the interpersonal side, to the effective use of logo, name in corporate communication, Lisa covers it all. Especially effective is her ability to communicate her knowledge and experience well when it may be a difficult conversation or simply a in person training is outstanding. I highly recommend Lisa, give a call you will be glad you did!”

“Lisa Helped Me Understand What Works for Me, My Lifestyle AND Gave Me Confidence!”
“"Lisa did a tremendous job helping me to understand what works best for me, that fits with my lifestyle, and gives me confidence with my wardrobe. She created lots of "new" outfits from my existing pieces, putting things together that I would have never considered. Lisa took the time to understand me, and what I would be comfortable in, and made me feel great! She also taught me how to make the right selections going forward. It was a lot of fun and a real pleasure to work with Lisa!"”

“Lisa FINALLY Helped Me Understand My Body Shape & How to Dress to Look My Best.”
I recently worked with Lisa to do a wardrobe makeover. I’m someone that grew up as the “skinny girl” and has had a really hard time adjusting to an ever changing body and understanding how to dress my new curves that are here to stay. Lisa helped me FINALLY understand my body shape and how to dress to look my best. She is very kind, considerate and encouraging. Her passion and enthusiasm is contagious. You can tell she doesn’t want to just style you, she wants to teach you how to feel confident and happy. I walked away having a good sense of exactly what to look for in shirts, pants, shoes, jackets and even jewelry. Even more, she created a shopping list for me with links to stores (that I could afford!) for pieces that would help fill in the gaps in my wardrobe. Working with Lisa has given me the confidence boost that I needed to walk with my head up again instead of hunching over and covering up. Thank you Lisa!!

She Researched AIPSO and Came Prepared With Relevant Information & Examples to Connect With Her Audience.
“*Lisa’s presentation on the Power of Verbal and Nonverbal Communication was engaging and informative.*Thank you for bringing Lisa to us.*Wish the presentation was longer. *Can we invite Lisa back for more awe inspiring presentations?
“This is the type of feedback I received after having invited Lisa to AIPSO to present the Power of Verbal and Nonverbal Communication. Lisa spoke of the importance of first impressions and how people perceive us not only by our appearance, but also how we conduct ourselves through oral and written communication.
You could tell Lisa did her homework. She researched our company, AIPSO, and came prepared with relevant information and examples so she could connect with her audience. Mission accomplished. Lisa was able to not only connect with her audience but was also able to engage them in an open and energetic dialogue.
Working with Lisa prior to coming in for the presentation was fantastic. Lisa is easy to work with on a professional level and I have enjoyed our talks on a personal level.
I look forward to our continued professional and personal relationships.”

“Working with Lisa was fantastic! I Discovered Potential In My Own Closet!”
““Working with Lisa was fantastic! Not only did I have fun and enjoy her company, I discovered potential in my own closet I’d never have discovered on my own, learned a few simple tricks to take my appearance from ho-hum to classy, and quickly filled the gaps in my wardrobe on a wildly successful shopping trip. Lisa’s sense of style and what would work for me was spot on. But at the same time she helped push me out of a “safe” zone of neutrals into more fun and fun to wear items. I am so grateful to her and already thinking about winter shopping.””
“I had the Pleasure of Inviting Lisa to be a Keynote Speaker.”
“I had the pleasure of inviting Lisa to be a key note speaker at the North Shore Technology Council meeting a few months. Lisa’s presence created instant energy and excitement within the room. Her upbeat attitude and approach to presenting the “best image” of ourselves resonated across the group. Lisa stressed the importance of presenting a positive initial impression and how looking, speaking and preparing for all meetings personifies who we are. First impressions are the most important impressions we make and the success of how people perceive us translates into successful or failed business and personal relationships. I hope to have the pleasure to see Lisa and consult with her in my business when needed. I would highly recommend engaging her services.”

“The 4 P’s of Entrepreneurship – Lisa Offered Me that AH-HA Moment!”
“Johnson & Wales UniversityThe 4 P’s of Entrepreneurship – What I’ve Learned…
Lisa Shorr is a very warm and inspiring individual with a fantastic sense of style and people. When my professor told the class a personal stylist, Lisa Shorr, was coming in to speak, I was so excited and looked her up immediately! She is such an inspiration from what I’ve researched and then from her presentation as well. Not only does Lisa really know her stuff, but she also offered me that ‘ah-ha’ moment. Listening to Lisa speak about her experiences as a stylist made me realize, that was one major aspect to the fashion industry which I loved; helping people feel good, look good, and express themselves through personal style and clothing.”

Delight and joy await you when you invite Lisa Shorr to come to your closet and explore!
“Delight and joy await you when you invite Lisa Shorr to come to your closet and explore! Her obvious talents and excitement about accessories and colors and clothes is infectious. You might even discover that exactly what you have will work in new combinations, and with a variation on accessories. Rediscover the gems that you already have! Get rid of the ones that just don’t work! I had the most amazing three hours with Lisa, and I feel renewed and charged up about my own femininity and beauty. We can be so harsh about our own bodies, and so critical. Lisa is a delightful set of second eyes to set you on the right path!”

I had the pleasure of spending three very productive hours with Lisa Shorr during a Closet Clean Up.
“I had the pleasure of spending three very productive hours with Lisa Shorr during a Closet Clean Up we did together.Before we entered my closet, Lisa took the time to get to know my style, my body type and what I was hoping to accomplish with our session. I started a new job with a much more corporate dress code and I needed to put together looks that were more polished without completely changing my own personal style. Right away she helped me figure out I wasn’t wearing the correct size. She pointed out the clothes that fit best and we weeded out what I kept hanging in my closet but never wore. She also found great pieces I wore only occasionally and showed me how I could work them into my everyday looks. I’m amazed at what I didn’t know I had right in my closet. There were some basics I needed to add and Lisa was great about suggesting a few pieces that could go along way. Lisa has a great eye and gave me ideas I never would have come up with on my own. Before I worked with her I thought of working with a stylist as a luxury. After working with Lisa, I now see it as a practical investment. I showed up at my new job knowing I looked great. I highly recommend working with Lisa – she’s great at what she does.”
