Praise

Clear and actionable game plan.

Lindsay is uniquely gifted at taking a wickedly complex consumer value proposition and developing a succinct and compelling brand strategy. Equally as important, she provides a clear and actionable game plan to bring the strategy to life – focused on driving customer acquisition, retention and revenue. Lindsay's disciplined approach, insights, and ability to get in the hearts and minds of our target customers provided extraordinary value.

CEO
Arivale, Inc.
Applied best practices from big industry to our start-up.

As an early stage start-up it's difficult to make space for strategy. Lindsay accelerated our strategic thinking without it becoming a distraction. It's kind of like going for a run every once in a while when you're hard at work in a conference room. We got to take our brains for a run, and it was very energizing. Lindsay applied best practices from big industry to our start-up. We got an entire big company marketing consultancy value in one efficient person.

Got our whole team enthusiastic about doing this right.

It’s a big relief for someone who runs a company to have strategic work done by someone who does it so well. Lindsay is very inclusive and has great leadership skills – she got our whole marketing and sales team enthusiastic about doing this right. And her work underscored to me how important it is to take that pause from the day-to-day trenches of business and step back and remember that even though things aren’t always urgent, they are very important.

Hands down the best we've worked with.

Working with Lindsay strengthened my respect for the importance of brand, marketing and messaging. It's a pleasure to work with a true marketing expert who cares about both her work product and its impact to our business. By focusing on our customer, and what actually delights them, she got us to a better place; we reached a level of insight that helped to propel exponential and market-leading growth. She's hands down the best we've worked with.

Now we have a lens to filter our efforts.

Lindsay helped us understand the questions we needed to ask ourselves and our customers – how to define our product to successfully market ourselves. Her work shifted the tenor of our conversation; now we have a lens to filter our efforts, on the product side and the marketing side. Lindsay's extremely diligent, intelligent, and a great presenter. She really knows her stuff.

Kirby Winfield
CEO
Dwellable
Helped us gain insight into our positioning.

Lindsay is very intelligent, insightful, and articulate. Working to reify our ideas and provide more discipline around our customer interviews, she helped us gain insight into our positioning and take our branding to the next level. She’s also excellent at interacting with other subject matter experts – a very valuable skill in a collaborative environment.

Hard-working brand strategies that fuel business growth.

Lindsay delivers hard-working brand strategies that fuel business growth. She is a whip-smart strategist with a unique ability to combine data and outside-the-box thinking to unlock a brand’s value as a powerful business driver – and align the entire organization to execute on it.

Leigh McMillan

Avvo
Knows brand marketing A to Z.

A top-notch brand builder with broad experience, Lindsay knows brand marketing A to Z. I am absolutely opposed to spin, and Lindsay never tried to promote spin. Good marketing is figuring out how to talk to your customers in a way that helps them understand the benefits that you’re providing – but there have to be true benefits. Lindsay dramatically improved our ability to do that.

Joe Mallahan
CEO
Daylight Mobile
Enormously successful.

As a venture capital firm focused in investing in the world's best consumer businesses, we were looking to create very clear brand positioning that enabled us to stand out in the marketplace. Lindsay was able to help do that – driving a re-branding process that has been enormously successful.

Jason Stoffer
Partner
Maveron
Brings a rigor to brand strategy.

What’s different about Lindsay is that having been on the front lines managing a P&L herself, she brings rigor to brand strategy – something many people consider to be subjective. And this rigor gave me great credibility with the CEO and board, and ultimately helped the whole company grasp the acquisition and our new positioning. Lindsay made me look like a star.

Leslie Leach

Certent
An engineering approach to marketing.

I’ve worked with lots of marketers over the years, and to find somebody who’s really good at tearing apart a fairly squishy and abstract problem and applying a framework and a structure to it is a pretty special skill set. It’s like Lindsay has an engineering approach to marketing. She’s pointed our whole company in a new direction, and it’s invigorating and exciting to have a strategy we’re executing on instead of an ad hoc approach.

Greg Bear
President
Bear Group
A sharp, strategic thinker.

What really distinguishes Lindsay is her passion for positioning. Our brand means a lot to us, and it was fantastic to get an external perspective on our positioning from someone with true enthusiasm, rather than some clinical approach. Lindsay is a sharp, strategic thinker and her work was core to our strategy in the business moving forward.

Matt Yost
SVP
Diamond Foods
Thoughtful, thorough, engaged and accessible.

There’s no substitute for experience and Lindsay knows marketing inside and out. We’re a small company and she brought the expertise we needed to improve our marketing strategy. When you work with Lindsay, you get results – not to mention fantastic people skills – she is thoughtful, thorough, very much engaged and accessible.

John Lewison
CEO
WatchMeGrow
What you get with Lindsay is results.

Lindsay came very highly recommended to develop a marketing strategy that would drive our quite aggressive growth goals, and she did just that. She was not making a marketing strategy to make us feel good. It was to drive business results. What you get with Lindsay and not with others is actionable insights and results.

Jeremy Korst
VP, Broadband
T-Mobile
Understood my challenges as a leader.

Because of her background, Lindsay has that general management perspective that isn’t confined to just marketing – she understood my challenges as leader of the organization. She shows up with great executive presence and instills a lot of confidence in a very collaborative way.

Tricia Montgomery
Vice President
Coinstar
Groundbreaking work.

Lindsay is passionate about what she does, she’s a good listener, and she’s not afraid to push back which I appreciate. She helped us establish what a newly acquired brand is going to stand for, and that’s impacting how we’re positioning the brand, how we’re communicating the brand to consumers – it’s groundbreaking work.

Steve Donley
Vice President
Continental Mills
A smashing success.

We sought Lindsay out to help define our marketing plan for the national launch of Starbucks VIA™. Her output was exceptional. The launch of VIA was a smashing success, and Lindsay was integral to that.

Jessica Shapiro
Director, U.S. Marketing
Starbucks
We’re a start-up in a hurry.

From a marketing perspective, Lindsay clearly knows her stuff. But what makes her really unique is her ability to listen to and challenge ideas in a manner that lets you figure out the issue yourself, so you understand it better and internalize it. We’re a start-up in a hurry, and in a very small amount of time Lindsay was able to point us in a better direction. She kept us on track and helped us avoid the errors we would have made without her.
