She is then willing to take the initiative to bring the task to fruition with little direct supervision necessary. She is also easy to work with and flexible enough to adjust her schedule to your time pressures. I found her a joy to work with!

"Lisa is an extremely professional individual with whom it is pleasant and fun to work with. She provided me with excellent assistance for a course I taught at the London Business School. She not only proficiently helped me with the grading of the exams, but she also gave me invaluable context prior to the beginning of my course, so I could adapt my teaching to the LBS culture

Professor Xavier Castañer

Fellow in Entrepreneurship, HEC University of Lausanne

"Lisa has worked for several years with IESE, participating in different, complex projects related to the design and execution of executive development programs. Lisa made a significant contribution to the success of her projects, thanks to high quality work and a positive and proactive attitude

Giuseppe Auricchio

Executive Director, Learning Innovation, IESE Business School

"I worked with Lisa over several months as we reviewed and redesigned the Full Time MBA. As a consultant to the project, Lisa was thorough and diligent, providing challenging and useful insights into the process. As a result of her research we were able to develop a clear vision of where we wanted to take the programme and make strategic choices that have ensured that it has remained one of the top MBA programmes in the world. We’ve since worked together on a desk based research exercise to assess our programme credit structure – the project required a quick turnaround and a deep analysis that enabled us to develop a new credit based framework, which we will look to embed in very near future

Stephen Chadwick

Executive Director, Operations, London Business School
