“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.”

"I recommend LQ Consulting and President Laure Quinlivan to any business, citizen group or government organization seeking great Community Engagement with neighborhood residents.
Laure used her communication skills and knowledge of government and development from her work as a city council member, to get residents a seat at the table with the developer building 40 new luxury homes on Walworth Avenue. Six weeks after Laure organized our first meeting with him, the developer finally signed a Community Benefits Agreement.
Kenneth French, Developer
"Laure Quinlivan, President of LQ Consulting, has really impressed me with her proactive approach and sincere desire to include citizen ideas for public space amenities in my project. Laure began our outreach by going door to door on the street closest to where I plan to build. I'm confident that LQ Consulting's Community Engagement will help make this project a "win-win" for me, the City of Cincinnati, and the Hyde Park/Oakley neighborhoods."

Hospital Marketing Videos
“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.”
David Pepper, Cincinnati, OH
Political Campaign video
“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.”
Marge Hammelrath, OTR Foundation
TV Documentary of Urban Renaissance
“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.”
“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.”
Diane Thompson, Itelligence Inc.
Humorous corporate event video
"I want to recommend Laure Quinlivan to anyone who needs video to convey a message. I worked with her in 2008 and got marvelous results for our worldwide company event. Laure cut through out technical jargon to produce a video that hit on our message simply, with humor and clarity. The video is being played by partners in our industry and at exhibitions in Europe and the USA even today."
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."

Community Engagement Video
"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."
Deborah Potter, Executive Director, NewsLab, Washington, DC
TV News & Documentary
"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."
Mike Murray, Vice President M-E Companies
Event promo video
"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."
