Full Client List
  • “This has been, by far, the most comprehensive and thought provoking process that I have been involved with. Joy and her team will challenge conventional thinking, push creative ideas and solutions that are realistic to achieve, and ensure that established timelines are adhered to. Joy and her team at Lord built several intervals for both community input and debriefs as we moved forward with the plan development. Now that Weeksville is entering the implementation phase, we view Joy and Lord as an integral part of the success of this work, therefore we have added Joy and the team as our Strategic plan implementation consultant for at least the next 6 months. Joy was masterful in structuring the conversations and identifying co-chairs to ensure the focus always remained in the purpose at hand, Weeksville. ”
    Tim Simons, Chair of the Board of Trustees of Weeksville Heritage Center
  • “I can't tell you how it feels to be receiving this beautifully designed document with so much of the Rancho's future wrapped up in its contents. It has been quite a journey and so gratifying to see the hopes and dreams of many people presented on these pages. Thank you for all your wisdom and gentle encouragement to bring this to fruition.”
    Freda Hinsche Otto, Executive Director, Rancho los Alamitos
  • “The planning work that Lord Cultural Resources has done for the Natural History Museum of Utah has been critical to our success. A master plan for the Museum analyzed our physical facilities, market, collections, and programs and laid the foundation for the work that led to the construction of the new building, the Rio Tinto Center. Their business planning provided a road map for the successful operation of the Museum prior to and after opening the new building. And the strategic plan set direction for the Museum after its transformation from a small academic museum to a large, community-based institution.”
    Sarah B. George, Executive Director, Utah Museum of Natural History
