WHO WE ARE
Thanks for checking us out! I’m Amber Nelson, the ringleader here at The Lingo Institute. 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 customer insights 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.
