Her perspective and thought-provoking questions were timely and spawned the necessary thinking needed with new opportunities that we are all presented with.

"Elizabeth is a class act who makes people better, whether she’s working directly with them, or inspiring them from a stage. It has been an honor to work alongside Elizabeth for a few years now. I’ve seen her lead strategy sessions with vigor and poise, and stand in front of a thousand customer experience experts and challenge them with innovative ideas anchored by timeless principles. One of the greatest compliments I can pay her is that she’s kind. Elizabeth shares with an open, authentic heart. That’s rare in the business world. That same heart is what informs the quality of her work, both at Chick-fil-A and outside, where she gives freely of her time, intellect, and passion.”

"The training Elizabeth provided our Outreach and Communication team at WinShape Camps was exactly what we needed and was incredibly timely given our season of work and new team members added. Elizabeth guided us deeper into the issues we needed to discuss and helped us identify our true pain points and the things that were holding us back. Her incredible content and intentionality in getting to know who we are helped take us to the next level in our thinking about customer experience, and the process was unifying for our marketing, customer experience and sales teams. We want to have her back!"
