          I just wanted to let you know that I heard great things about Lisa Orrell, the speaker who conducted the Leadership Seminar at your college. My daughter was one of the students who attended it and was very impressed by Lisa’s message and delivery. It was great to see her inspired this way! Thanks for making arrangements for this event and for hiring such a terrific speaker.

          “Lisa was the Keynote for our Hotel Council of San Francisco’s Annual Member Meeting.
          The subject was working, motivating and retaining Millennials in the workplace.
          She was fantastic. She gave a presentation that was funny, engaging, data driven and inspired. And several attendees asked me for her contact information to hire her for their companies. I will definitely book Lisa again!”

          The single biggest challenge America faces over the next decade is managing the transition from a Boomer led country to one dominated and led by America’s next great generation, Millennials. In her book, “Millennials Into Leadership”, Lisa Orrell provides members of that generation their first practical ‘how to’ advice on succeeding when faced with leadership roles at work. Hopefully, many Millennials will read this book, take her advice, and lead our country, and our companies, into their next era of excellence.

          Even down here in Australia we’ve come across Lisa Orrell and her world-class analysis of the Millennials. As leading social researchers analyzing generational trends across Asia, I can tell you that the issues addressed in ”Millennials Incorporated’ are indeed global challenges. Lisa speaks with authority on these emerging employees and she offers excellent insights into this global generation.

          I’ve been responsible for hiring MANY speakers and trainers over the years, and it’s rare that we hire them repeatedly. But Lisa is an exception! We fly her in a lot as a keynote to kick off various events we do, as well as for conducting training workshops. Plus, I’ve referred her to divisions all over J & J and they all rave about her, too! She is personable, hilarious, and witty, plus her content is always SO informative and useful. – Colleen M. Jones: V.P. of Operations, The Vision Care Institute, Johnson & Johnson

          Lisa came to our company as a keynote speaker for a mixed-generation audience with a talk entitled “Improving Communications Across the Generations.” She delivered very insightful concepts of what makes members of different generations unique while disproving common stereotypes. She also provided several eye-opening statistics on the evolving workforce and numerous stories of relatable mishaps and miscommunications stemming from the generational gaps. Based on audience engagement and feedback, she was very well received. Overall, Lisa was a pleasure to work with and extremely accommodating, tailoring specific topics upon our request. We hope to host her again at future events! – Yvonne Wu, Ph.D.: Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson
