Pleasure to Meet You
I’m Amber Nelson, the ringleader here at Lingo Consulting, Inc. I’ve been happily building this marketing, communications, and strategy company since 1997. My team and I are dedicated to helping our clients build a strong marketing communications foundation to increase their reach, maximize their impact, and meet their business goals.
Occasionally, I take on projects simply because they move me, inspire me, or present intriguing opportunities. Some of my more interesting adventures have included hanging out with truckers and Harley Davidson dudes to gain customerinsights for a new toolbox startup, devising volunteer recruitment and retention strategies for an L.A. nonprofit, teaching workshops on effective communications to a ballroom full of financial service professionals and founding TEDxPasadenaWomen.
I’m always looking for the next challenge, whether it’s trying a new hiking trail, embarking on a collaborative venture with another company, or helping our clients pave the way to their future. Whatever the task at hand, my team uses everything in our evolving integrated marketing and communications tool box to help our clients understand their audiences and what motivates them, clarify what needs to be communicated and identify the best way to serve up that message for maximum impact.
Lingo clients are international companies, small business owners, executives and individuals who know marketing matters, words can change the world, and strategy is where everything starts. If you’re one of our kind, let’s talk!
