Lucy Griffin-Stiff, Leading ConversationsPeople want to work with me because I genuinely care about helping them, and will do everything in my gift to do so.

We build a relationship where we can be completely honest with each other.

We feel the trust. I am so anti-BS that trust is a given with me.

Working with me feels easy, fun, and inspiring.

And we get the job done too.

We cut through the noise to get to the heart of the matter.

Because that’s where we find the solution.

We build engagement and trust.

I am a hand of encouragement and head of expertise to guide you.

I can help you find ways to connect with the audience that matters to you, in a way that matters to them.

Helping you to work out why people should care about your business, product, service or idea, and help you communicate it in a way that people connect with, and care about.

My skill lies in being able to quickly and intuitively figure out what sort of help you need from an initial conversation. Then we dig a bit deeper to get to the heart of the matter.

I love helping people. Feeling I am making a difference to their lives and also in many cases, the lives of their employees and customers.

That’s why I do what I do.

I want to put “caring” into consulting. No more Corporate BS.

I bring energy, passion and enthusiasm that enables people to overcome their blockers and begin to make a difference.

Because deep down, we all want to make a difference.

Together, we can do that.
