Lydia Lazar

Consulting Services

I am interested in using my analytical, business development and networking skills to support work in areas including but not limited to regenerative agriculture, women's leadership/empowerment, international student recruitment and career counseling.

Senior Leadership in Academia

Available for consulting on a range of issues. Previous projects have included both on-going consulting and just-in-time support for a range of international recruitment and student success projects, including top-to-bottom operations reviews, activity risk audits, strategic planning and support for enhancing or establishing global partnerships.

Campus visits and Zoom workshops
I am available for talks with students, to offer pragmatic and timely advice, helping them find ways to develop the skills they need to have successful careers and fulfilling lives. I  offer guidance on how they can take control of their time, their energy and their attention to achieve highly personal career objectives—on their own terms, in ways that lead to both happiness and success.  I help students prepare for navigating what comes next  - and prepare to move from strength to strength in the good times—while building resilience for the challenging times.

In these uncertain times, my workshops offer students powerful, pro-active steps they can take to reduce anxiety and build connections that lead to employment.
