Trust, transparency and honest are essential in any relationship. I look forward to forging our way forward together and earning your confidence. I am proud to share a few thoughts from a few of my clients below.
“I have worked with many consultants in the past but none have come close to providing me the value Lisa does. She is knowledgeable, strategic, energetic, sharp and a pleasure to work with. Lisa is helping me relaunch my company ZEGO as the first ever transparent purity tested brand. This is an expansion of our original narrower focus of allergen and gluten transparency, two areas we were very familiar with, and challenges us to reach a whole new consumer base of clean eaters. Lisa knows exactly how to find the influencers and partners in that space who will be passionate about our mission to bring about a cleaner the food system and who will help us spread the word without breaking our budget. She understands the full spectrum of what we are trying to do and has been a master at helping us synthesize our message and translate it to packaging and marketing assets. The only problem is that she has raised my standard for consultants so high that I fear I’ll never find anyone else for our other consulting needs who comes close!”
Colleen Kavanagh, Co-Founder, CEO of ZEGO
“Lisa has generously offered so many valuable life lessons to me that have had such a positive impact on my life. Her generosity in sharing her knowledge has caused me to become more aware of how I can make a strong impact to improve my health and my community. Through implementing many of what she has shared, I have become more joyful and healthier. At a time when one’s health and the health of the planet is so important, she is a gem! Health, farmer’s markets, fun, wonder, community are all pillars that Lisa feels strongly about. Thank you Lisa for all you do!”
“Love the idea of this (community) and absolutely love this whole thing you have built… I have never felt anything so rich in good intentions. Well done and keep going!”
“While Borden Communications is a small firm, I am surprised at the speed and volume of work it can do for us. I love working with Lisa because she is frank, brilliant and fast. And we have and will continue to get great results from our work together. I am fortunate to work with her now and I only wished I did it years earlier.”
Jean Eng, President at Pure+Simple
“Everyone needs Lisa to dig into your pain points. Lisa challenges everything you know. She will point you in a clear direction towards growth. Everything: you as a leader to you as a leader to you as a business. Gratitude. So much more work to do together.”
“My nervous system has been put through the ringer over the last 3 weeks. It felt so cared for today. What you’re doing makes a difference. I would encourage all to carve out time here.”
“Lisa is not only savvy, diligent, innovative and a genuine force to be reckoned with, she is a truly ethical person for whom I have the deepest respect. If you want an honest and constructive opinion – ask Lisa. If you want a cheerleader and mentor rolled up in one fierce and compassionate package – you want Lisa. If you want to grow and optimize your business but not betray your vision, ethics and heart – you need Lisa. Never sweet, but always generous: she’s one of the good ones.”
Alexis Butler, Editor-in-Chief at EcoParent Magazine
“We need Lisa Borden humans to help open our eyes, minds and hearts. I’ve always seen the not so good side of “healthy” eating and the green washing but never to the extent that I’ve learned through you personally and through Borden Communications . Thank you for all you do and for being so brave for as long as I’ve known you! You are leading the way for so many and I hope to continue expressing what I learn from you and others who are like minded and to extend it all to all human kind who need to know more! I am constantly learning and thinking it all through. There’s so much to take in though even small steps make a difference and can lead to significant change.
Thank you Lisa !”
“Lisa Borden is by far the most valuable consultant I have ever worked with. If I had to limit expenses to a single resource it would absolutely be Lisa. She is nothing short of exceptional.”
Donna Bishop, founder/ ceo of Green Beauty Inc., Environmental Defense cabinet member, makeup artist and instructor
“If you read through the reviews from Lisa Borden’s satisfied and inspired clients and colleagues, you will see a pattern in the language people choose, which, to me, speaks for itself: She is honest, invested, direct, professional, powerful, innovative and trustworthy. Lisa is like a masterful tailor who knows exactly what is going to fit: The right threads, materials, fasteners and cuts–and the way she weaves everything together to “complete the outfit” is transformational. Lisa’s business strategies produce results that reflect and balance the original and authentic vision of her clients. Her unique and innovative methods bring clarity, purpose, meaning, organization and success to people who are fortunate enough to connect with her positivity, focus and brilliance. The ultimate satisfaction in having worked with Lisa is the growth she promotes within and among her clients: She truly cares about the connections she makes and the people she brings together in her network/force for good. As a children’s educational musician, my mission in the songs I write and record is to create valuable and meaningful teaching resources for children, educators, parents and caregivers. Lisa’s design and guidance has made it possible for me to share my work in a useful and organized way, while being true to myself and maintaining my focus as an educator. Anyone and everyone who is aligned with Lisa Borden, who has benefited from her brilliance and vision that good people are “stronger together” knows the deep feeling of gratitude that has compelled me to share my feelings here about how fortunate I am to have worked with her…and to have her in my life!”
Nancy Kopman, Educational Children’s Music–songwriter/performer/recording artist
“Lisa is a visionary, and she has used her vision to bring very tangible results to my company. Lisa is also filled with integrity, and uses her time, energy, and talent to make a difference in the world. Lisa gets results for those that she works with, and I am so grateful that Lisa, and her company Borden Communications and Design, have come into my life!”
Daniel Hoffmann, Organic Farmer, Social Worker, Community Developer, Food Programmer, Community Gardening Specialist, BSW
“Please don’t hire Lisa Borden (I don’t want to share her services with you).
Lisa will create a whirlwind of positive strategic activity based on cost effective and cutting edge initiatives sure to clear the cobwebs from your business communications plan. Highly recommended.”
Warren Brander, GM Derma Wise / Thera Wise
“Lisa Borden is a change maker. Her passion for inspiring environmental change carries over into everything she does. Her mind is constantly coming up with fresh ways to get people excited about making a difference for the planet. To know Lisa is to be inspired by Lisa — and to want to try harder to live green.”
Ann Douglas, Author. Magazine Writer. On-Air Parenting Columnist. Speaker.
“No one on earth would ever accomplish anything without creating their own urgency. Having Lisa on-board is like putting your urgency on steroids. It’s all good no matter how it looks, sounds, etc. So after about 2 minutes of complaining about how “Lisa’s a pain in the butt”, we end up having our own little gratitude session about the big difference she makes being on our team.”
Brian Surowiec, IT/Web Consultant and Entrepreneur, Vice President of Strawesome
“I love working with Lisa. I have been skeptical of many companies that say they can help me reach new markets but Lisa wasn’t lying! Her creative ideas always turn into a profitable ‘investment’ and I am always thrilled to hear what she is working on.”
Melissa Gunning, CEO & Founder Wean Green
“As my business evolves…I am often stuck on what to do next. That’s when Lisa comes to the rescue. I always leave a meeting with her inspired and excited about all the new products and ideas she comes up with. Lisa’s integrity and commitment to what she does is unmatched.
I always know expert advice and a shoulder to lean on is a phone call or a visit away.”
Kym Klopp, Owner at ecoexistence
“Lisa provides exceptional quality and tremendous value — she proactively helped our business and ultimately became an invaluable, trusted part of our team. Her range of knowledge is exceptional!”
Oliver Madison, Founder & CEO, Me to We Style
“We love Borden Communications because our brand would not be alive and well without the ever probing, brilliant, visionary mind of Lisa Borden… She rocked my world and continues to. Thank you LB for doing what you do. Your work is far reaching through all the people and brands you touch… If you want to start a business, feel good about your daily work or you need strategic guidance or exquisite branding, she’s your gal. Expect to get out of your comfort zone and squirm a little because she’s gonna challenge you to think outside the box and won’t mince words but she is worth every penny and is better than most therapists. No bullshit. Hallelujah. Just what the doctor ordered…”
Graydon Moffat, Founder at GRAYDON Clinical Luxury by Nature
“Lisa has been an integral part of growing my brand and my business. I am always blown away by her ideas. She steers me straight and always has my best interests at heart. A TRUE professional. I always look forward to our meeting and always leave with a renewed sense of what I should be doing.”
Candice Batista, Heatlh/Eco Producer & Eco Expert The Marilyn Denis Show
“If my business had stocks, the Lisa Borden one would be the most valuable of them all. I would invest everything in her, because the returns are truly remarkable, and have amazing long term results.”
Catherine Farquharson, Photographer, Documentographer
“Lisa always gives strong and clear (and brilliant!) advice. She is a fountain of knowledge and genuinely cares about the success of her clients. After our initial consultation I immediately trusted her with my brand (my baby!) and I cannot thank her enough for all her help!”
Kailey Gilchrist, creator/owner of NONA Vegan Foods Ltd.
“Lisa helped to bring our business to the next level by helping us understand what really mattered. She advised and recommended us to connect with other entrepreneurs and products that not only brought us publicity but businesses. Her creativity and work ethics are second to none and her network is impressive.”
Jacqueline Szeto-Meiers, Vice President, Canso Investment Counsel Ltd
“Lisa challenges me to be better at what I do and she is always ethical. I would recommend Lisa to anyone who is serious about wanting to be better in business, who would appreciate her commitment, and value her integrity.”
Sara Winter, VP Community at Specialisterne Canada
“I love the community. It’s so nice to open an app and be in a space where everything is so positive. I did the Good Mornings Lab in The Wellness Intelligence Collective and it brought so much up that was greatly needed that I didn’t even realize. It has really opened my eyes to little things that are really big things in every day life.”
“The many small gifts from you are already feeling like big ones:
– waking up the hips while still in dreamland
– tepid water with apple cider vinegar, surprisingly invigorating
– barefoot on the dewy morning grass, stretching with new pleasure
– thoughtful walking on stairs
And a general growing awareness….
Looking forward to what comes next.
With deep appreciation,”
“Discovering my Wellness Intelligence has changed my life, but most importantly, I look forward to learning more about how I can live better every day. Now that I know how to sit at my desk in a healthier way, stretch well, and control my nervous system, my effectiveness at work has improved, especially with working from home full time since lockdowns. It sounds crazy, but I benefit from being so close to this work. Love TWIC!”
“Our experience using Borden Communications and working with Lisa and team was wonderful and responded to all of our expectations. People we can count on, quality, integrity and dedication to great causes!”
Lulu Cohen-Farnell, Founder, Chief Brand & Food Innovation Officer- Real Food for Real Kids
“I can say that I have at least implemented one awesome daily ritual of drinking a waterfall each morning and in turn, have already passed the info on to my work colleagues! Invest in yourself and others, and listen to Lisa, it will also be a great first step.”
“WHY do you need to exercise? WHY do you need to eat well? HOW do you do it? There are so many books to count on these subjects and I’ve heard it all before, but oh my goodness, I have never seen a workbook and community like this. This can literally transform your life. All health-related topics will answer your WHY’s with such wisdom, you will be saying to yourself “geez – this makes so much sense, I better get to it.” (that’s what I said, at least) I can go on forever – there are really so many great topics covered. You’re just going to have to see for yourself.”
Sharon Neiss Arbess, Author
“Working with Lisa is wonderful, as she helped me to see things I’m doing that are detrimental to my longevity in life and in business.”
Stacey Burgess, Live On Chocolate Ltd.
“Your wellness session gave me hope, strength and tools to combat those moments of fear and doubt that all entrepreneurs face! When I surround myself with giants like you I can only go up from here! I’m just getting started!”
Stef Morra, Little Nest Holistic Nutrition
“Loving Wellness Intelligence. Even 15 minutes and it’s like my brain is refreshed! A calorie less snack!”
Mary Nagai, Doctor, Assistant Professor at The University of Toronto
“Lisa is the most professional and relatable person I have ever worked with. She cuts around the fluff and gives her expert opinion where needed and seems to always have the answer to the next question in her back pocket. I trust her implicitly with my important business decisions and I’m grateful to have someone so honest and sharp on my side. Every time I leave a meeting with Lisa I Literally feel a little smarter. You can’t buy that kind of wisdom. (Well, you can if you work with Lisa). I find this quality alone priceless but coupled with her myriad of talent and dedication, there’s no one in this industry I’d rather be aligned with than her. I am blessed and feel extreme gratitude to be one of Lisa’s clients and look forward to tackling whatever project comes next knowing I have her by my side.”
