“L. Joy Williams came on board to help with outreach for a women entrepreneurs competition and conference just weeks before the live event. Her high energy and expansive list of contacts helped us galvanize participants and attendees in short order. L. Joy “got” the mission of our program and was able to translate it to new stakeholders in a way that garnered a full house on the day of the program – a true clutch player!”
