Lisa's diverse clientele ranges from resort towns and financial institutions to corporations, colleges and a wide variety of retailers. She speaks from her own experience using humor and citing examples that come from daily life. Lisa will ask you to reassess your business not only through original image and supply goals but in the way you treat yourself, your staff and your customer, as well. Her belief is that if you have chosen to be in a service industry then your aim must be to serve -- and to do everything possible to help your staff and your customer achieve their goals.

Lisa is a stickler for professional attire. In always dressing the part of your position, or perhaps the position you would most like to hold, you can secure your image in the workplace and always give yourself a business edge. Lisa teaches how to present a professional image for the life of your career.

INVESTMENT DRESSING® - Always Dress One Step Above Your Customer

Lisa teaches employees how to dress at work with her seminar on Investment Dressing - Professional Presence Through Attire®. This seminar covers the importance of a first impression; guidelines for building a work wardrobe that satisfies the requirements of your company's dress code; a demonstration of how to take 10-15 pieces of clothing and accessories and make over 40 outfits - always remembering Lisa's advice: "Never buy anything unless you have two things to go with it!"; how to make your investment last; and tips for presenting a professional image in the workplace. She also works with employees one-on-one as they are recommended for promotion and need to upgrade their attire to mirror a new management position, for instance. As Lisa always says, "Dress for the job you want, not the job you have."

"In recent years we have hired Lisa to help our company reach a higher standard of dress. Lisa held seminars for our entire company tailored to our specific dress code. We noticed a huge improvement in many of the areas with which we had struggled before. Lisa is full of energy and passion for her work and truly has made a positive impact on our company."

I have been producing the RE/MAX charitable fashion show at their annual international convention since 2006. I produce many fashion events around the country but it is always such a joy to work with RE/MAX and their charities. My business, Fashion Shows for Charity®, produces fun events and raises money for many local and national charities. Always open both your heart and your pocket book when it comes to helping those in need. Miracles happen every day - and you can be a part of them!

The 2013 RE/MAX international annual convention was held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas this year. Once again Lisa produced the fashion show for the Komen Foundation. Beautiful clothing from Dillard's Fashion Show Mall in Las Vegas was highlighted with all the zippy color trends this spring has to offer. Donations were strong for Komen and the Cure! Not only was the audience extremely generous with their money but 10% of all proceeds from the Dillard's boutique on site went to Komen, as well - a gracious offering from this magnificent retailer!

After the Dillard's fashion show four breast cancer survivors from within the RE/MAX network of independent realtors told their courageous stories and then walked the runway. They were such positive and inspiring examples of our ability to overcome all odds. These women remind us to never forget to have an attitude of gratitude - and always be expectant of miracles - they happen all around us, each and every day!

“You have a wonderful program and presentation in The Art of Retailing: A Peddler with Panache™. Your professionalism and knowledge of the retail industry really made this seminar series a great success. We hold many seminars and your presentation by far has been one of the best. Not only were buyers coming to listen to your seminar but once the word got around we had exhibitors as well as Dallas Market Center staff sitting in this series. Thank you for making the Dallas Market Center look so good. We look forward to working with you again!”

"In recent years we have hired Lisa to help our company reach a higher standard of dress. Lisa held seminars for our entire company tailored to our specific dress code. She then performed a spot check of all offices, to see how the employees were dressing, and provided a detailed report for all executives. We noticed a huge improvement in many of the areas with which we had struggled before. The next step was teaching our management team how to enforce the dress code. Again Lisa tailored a seminar specific to our needs whereby the managers could acquire the tools needed to help their employees maintain our high standard of dress. We will continue to work with Lisa as new employees are hired and refresher seminars are needed. She is full of energy and passion for her work and truly has made a positive impact on our company. We highly recommend Lisa to deliver quality service and engaging seminars. She is the consummate professional and we look forward to a long term working relationship with her."
