“Liz has been extremely instrumental in guiding our strategic direction and planning as we engage with corporations and supplier diversity teams within the WBENC network. As a certified women-owned business, this audience is a top priority for our growth and success. With Liz’s direction, we are participating in meaningful conversations and identifying opportunities that will facilitate new projects for ORI.”
“I had the opportunity to work with Liz and 12PointFive after Raare Solutions became WBENC certified. Drawing from her experience as Executive Director of WPEO DC, Liz worked with us to strategize many aspects of diversity conferences and events; booth preparation, giveaways, attracting attendees to our booth and networking with diversity managers. Her vast network in Supplier Diversity is impressive. But even more compelling is Liz’s compassionate nature and her desire to help you achieve your goals.
Liz is clear-headed, insightful, resourceful and magical at making the right connections. If you are a diverse small business owner you will not find a more powerful alley than Liz and 12PointFive to propel your business to success.”
“I wanted to send one more thank you for your time last week. I have just completed my target/strategy lists for Annette and also done my pre connection emails with all of the contacts we have.
We got a great response already from a WBENC corporate member! They put us in touch with the Senior Manager in our industry, who let us know about an upcoming opportunity. The woman will also be at Summit and Salute and told Annette to connect with her while there.
I am hoping this will be a great and successful trip for Annette with some “wins” this year.”
“Working with Liz has truly changed my success in connecting with Supplier Diversity professionals and the corporations they represent. Her expert direction has made it easy to channel my focus on the corporations that are the best fit for my company and to strategically build relationships with them over time. Hiring Liz was a great decision for BaselineGroupNY.”
Liz was a keynote speaker at a joint event for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in March 2019 and then she presented a workshop for Freddie Mac’s Supplier Academy in June 2019. Her content was relevant to business owners from across different certification organizations, including NGLCC, NMSDC, NVBDC and WBENC.Her materials and her presentation were lively, fun, and engaging. She covered the big picture while also giving attendees practical tips they can use right away.We got great feedback from attendees and Liz was a pleasure to work with!
