“Lisa Gunderson tailored a 3 part retreat format for our ENTIRE group, using concrete medical and business examples on how to be positive models in light of our stressful careers. She was very available, professional and very dynamic in her role. As physicians, we rely on evidence-based practice and reproducibility; Lisa gave us this and more in her series. She used personal anecdotes as well as evidenced based research programs. Since the program ended, we have continued to use her leadership recommendations and employee positive reinforcement.”

Dr. Leah M. Johnson – Family Practice Center

 

As the keynote speaker for the Sioux City Go Red For Women Luncheon, Lisa helped bring home our message of the importance of women knowing their risk of cardiovascular disease AND the need to do something about it. Overall Lisa made us laugh and delivered our important message in a way that made you feel like you had made a new friend and not just heard a guest speaker.

Tony Trauthwein – Sr. Vice President American Heart Association

 

Lisa is a professional, who is well connected in the industry and has the “big picture”.  She understands the need to pay attention to the details while motivating her audience.    In working with her thru leadership Dakota County, I found she produced “real results” and was a joy to work and associate with.  I would recommend Lisa to any organization needing a professional facilitator.   There is no question she is one of the best at what she does and is well recognized and respected for it.

Pat Anderson – President South Sioux City Area Chamber of Commerce

 

While facilitating our focus groups, Lisa presented herself and Argosy in the best of lights. She was pleasant, courteous and able to put the participants at ease. She managed the conversations and instinctively dug deeper into customer comments if she felt that answers to her questions were inadequate. The final presentation to our Executive Team was outstanding. We received findings and recommendations that not only addressed our concerns but exceeded them, ultimately providing us with thorough insight into the needs and wants of customers.

Kees Eder – VP & General Manager Argosy Casino

 

The participants rated Lisa extremely high in their reviews.  They appreciated her quick wit, gentle compassion, and tough questions – all in the right proportions.  I highly recommend Lisa Gunderson as a presenter!

Pam Miller – South Sioux City Education Center Director Northeast Community College
