Lisa Orrell, The Promote U Guru, is a well-known 20-year Branding Expert, Marketing Consultant and Certified Success Coach who works with small business owners, corporations, entrepreneurs, entertainers, professional and aspiring speakers, and book authors. And, based on her career track record, she was recently included on BrandGurus.net’s “Top 30 Most Influential Brand Gurus in the World” List. According to BrandGurus.net, the experts who made their final Top 30 List were voted on by more than 22,000 industry and business professionals around the globe.
“I didn’t even know I had been nominated to be considered for this. Apparently BrandGurus.net created a rather large list of candidates and then put it out to their industry database and social media networks for voting,” explains Lisa Orrell. “I wasn’t notified by them until the Top 30 List had been selected, so it was a total surprise! And, after looking at the experts who were on there with me, I quickly realized I was in great company. I had heard of most of them and I have read several of their popular business books.”
