LQ Consulting: Client Testimonials

Client Testimonials

Community Engagement, Roxanne Qualls, Former Cincinnati Mayor

"Laure Quinlivan led community engagement to change Cincinnati's system of government to 4-year council terms, a ballot issue voters passed in 2012.  She is a skilled presenter who engaged community, civic and business groups to win a major good government achievement."

Non-Profit Video, Jason Barron, Executive Director, Red Bike

“Red Bike has received tremendous feedback about the video that Laure created about our roll-out.  She really captured the energy bike share brings to the community and the excitement that people have for this new system of transportation.  And she was able to balance that with the instructional information about how to use the new system.  She weaved it all together in a great video.” 

Non-profit video, Mary Ronan, Cincinnati Public Schools Superintendent

"We were extremely pleased with the great storytelling skills and high video production quality of LQ Consulting."

Anniversary Event video, Jeanne GolliherCincinnati Development Fund

"Laure produced a video on the impact of our lending over 25 years, showing how our projects improve neighborhoods, quality of life and the economy in Greater Cincinnati.  She understood our work and made it come alive!"

Non-profit video, Jane Keller, President, Cincinnati Youth Collaborative

“If you want a video that captures your organization -what you do, how you do it and its impact - you need Laure. She told the story of Cincinnati Youth Collaborative through the voices of our volunteers, students and their families. You hear firsthand about the impact of CYC's services.  Storytelling is an art and Laure's experience and expertise makes sure that your story moves others to action.

Community Engagement, Larry FalkinCincinnati Office of Env. Quality

"For many of us, recycling is second nature, but when Cincinnati rolled out our enhanced recycling program, we suddenly had 30,000 households participating who had never done it before. Laure's video made recycling simple and appealing, putting a friendly face on the new City service."

Media Training for Executives, Debra DeCourcy, APR, Fifth Third Bancorp

“Laure provided a great media relations overview for our key executives – to supplement the in-house training they receive. She has a wealth of experience and expertise in the field which made the training session both interesting and beneficial.”

Business club video, Susan Wilkinson, President, Cincinnati Rotary Club

“The lively video by LQ Consulting is a great recruiting tool to attract new members and help folks understand Rotary. The good works and fellowship of our Rotary Club shine through.”

"CincyinNYC" TV Reports, Jon Lawhead, Local 12 News General Manager

"Laure produced four stories for Local 12, creating an emotional connection with the viewer and delivering what she promised.  There's no greater compliment than that."

Hospital marketing project Lori Deaton, Drake Center Public Relations

Laure brought her unique touch to a complex project for Drake Center, a marketing DVD to showcase our organization and signature services. Laure told our story in a journalistic style, capturing genuine, passionate moments from caregivers and patients that we never could have scripted. The end result is far more moving and real than anything we could have achieved through traditional corporate videos.”

Corporate Sales & Image video, Tom Ruthman, Ruthman Companies

“LQ Consulting produced a video that shows why our family-owned company is a world leader in the pump industry, with versions in Chinese and German for our international customers. We use it to sell our products and tell our story.  I highly recommend LQ Consulting.” 

Political Campaign video for Statewide Candidate, David Pepper, Cincinnati, OH

“I needed to introduce myself to voters around the state, and hired Laure to produce a video highlighting my work in politics. It included comments from people like Judge Jones who know me well.  The video broke the ice in rooms full of strangers and helped people get to know me, before I spoke.”

TV Documentary of Urban Renaissance, Marge Hammelrath, OTR Foundation

 “We were impressed by the thorough way that Laure took an idea and researched every aspect, and made every detail interesting and correct with her documentary “Visions of Vine Street”, and the many follow-up stories.  She has impeccable qualities and standards of excellence.”

TV News Enterprise Features, Brennan Donnellan, News Director, WLWT-TV

 “Laure worked for News 5 on a project called The Cincinnati to Germany connection. Laure was organized and found exciting angles, delivering three good in-depth stories shot in two countries, as promised. I highly recommend her.”  
TV Investigative (legal), Mark Godsey, Ohio Innocence Project, UC Law School

“Laure was an investigative reporter on the Roger Dean Gillispie case, an innocent man in prison for a rape he didn't commit. She uncovered many flaws with the conviction that led my Innocence Project to get involved from a legal perspective, even without DNA evidence.”

TV Investigative Reports, Deborah Potter, Exec Dir., NewsLab, Washington, DC

“Laure's work as an investigative reporter sets a standard that few local TV journalists can match. I often show her stories in training programs to illustrate the value of persistence and the importance of fairness in covering controversial issues. Laure's stories are also so well written that they are easy to understand, no matter how complex the subject matter.”

Promotional Video, Mike Murray, Vice President M-E Companies

"LQ Consulting assisted the Cincinnati chapter of ASHE (American Society of Highway Engineers) with a video highlighting the tri-state region for the 2010 ASHE National Conference.  The 6 minute presentation explained the conference and opportunities outside the conference for attendees while in town.  It was an outstanding promotional tool for our organization, the conference, and the City of Cincinnati.  She did an outstanding job of working with a group that was unsure of what we wanted and was willing to lend her talents, ideas and concepts to make an exceptional video on a very tight budget and timeline.  I would highly recommend her work to anyone making a promotional video."
