“During these unprecedented times business communities need wide guidance navigating through difficult conversations. Our team looked to Lee Mozena to facilitate the challenging and honest discussions our community needed to have in order to adapt and respond as a unit. Lee provided our group a safe and open space that allowed sharing to take place and for ideas to be developed. If you’re working with a team who needs expert outside support during these challenging times look no further than Lee Mozena”
I have found Lee Mozena to be a reliable professional who is constantly searching for mutual value and often presenting information, resources and opportunities that create access for those around her without regard of her own professional interests. This selfless attitude, translates directly into her ability to create deep and meaningful relationships rapidly, has allowed her to become a trusted ally in our space and has always caused us to view her as a partner rather than a competitor. Her generosity in relationship, and ability to prioritize access for small minority, disadvantaged communities has allowed her to also be seen as a leader among leaders and places her in the unique position of being considered an authority in her space.

Lee’s insights were critical to branding that reflects our priority and intentions. She guided us through a thought process to understand our values and community, then helped me avoid choosing images that possibly driven away future customers and current members. I highly recommend executive teams work with her to avoid subtle, but potentially disastrous messaging mistakes that you wouldn’t even catch.
