On Technica Public Relations & Marketing

[Kuusakoski was] the big, and actually the only bomb, that was dropped at the show…the buzz Technica built started immediately and continued throughout the show and we were discussed in at least three different seminars during the show. We heard people talk about us everywhere; in the elevator, the bar, the breakfast room, etc. Lisa Ann did her magic in a quiet and a no-nonsense kind of fashion and helped us generate a buzz that exceeded our expectations. It was a true pleasure to work with Lisa Ann.

- Hannu Melarti, former President of Kuusakoski Recycling US

Lisa Ann has created a world-class PR and marketing firm with the connections, intellect, and experience necessary to deliver immediate results that create real value. Easy to work with, forward thinking, organized, creative, flexible, ready to be there, connected and a whole lot more. Technica delivers and I highly recommend Lisa Ann and her team.

– Jeff Bisberg, CEO GE/Albeo Technologies

Not only does Technica do all the things we hire them to do, they work to make us better.

– Constantino Nicholaou, CEO PanelClaw North America

For the last two years Lisa Ann has been my marketing right-hand.   She has provided a public relations bonanza of publications and messaging that exceeded my expectations.  Her grasp of our business and marketing messaging is first rate.   She has provided insight into the world of renewable energy publications and writers.  She has contributed greatly to the marketing effort at Azuray ranging from our website to our exhibition messaging.  I appreciate her contribution to our business.

– Gil Miller, VP Business Development, Azuray Technologies

Working with Lisa Ann and her team at Technica Communications really educated me on how world-class public relations is done in the age of social media. While her team is certainly adept at crafting effective press releases and cultivating relationships with key reporters and news outlets, they are equally strong in developing and executing proactive, integrated social media campaigns combining Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and more to generate brand buzz on a global basis. In addition, Lisa Ann is wonderful to work with on a personal basis and I recommend her and the Technica team without reservation.

I have worked with Lisa Ann for the last two years in the context of my activities in the Global CleanTech Cluster Association (GCCA). She is the ‘glue’ that makes the five far-flung founders (US and Europe) function, and keeps us on track. Aside from managing the meetings of the founders team, Lisa Ann is awesome in getting all the marketing and communications done in time for the Later Stage Awards event, which engages 46 CleanTech clusters on five continents. Her team’s video production skills, ranging from interviews with the founders and cluster managers, to content delivery related to our signature award events, are particularly impressive. The energy, enthusiasm, and commitment to execution Lisa Ann brings to the GCCA literally has helped us become who we are. I highly recommend Lisa Ann and Technica Communications for companies and organizations in need of high quality marketing, production and communication delivery.

I have had the pleasure to work with Lisa Ann for many years. She and her team are extremely creative, responsive, and focused on every detail. The quality of work is superb. I highly recommend Lisa Ann for her integrity at any work scope.

– Ben Taube, Executive Chair, Global Cleantech Cluster Association

Working with Lisa Ann is great; she is not just capable and efficient but enthusiastic and visibly fond of what she is doing. For the last two years, she has in an extraordinary way coordinated the marketing communications of the Global Cleantech Cluster Association (GCCA). One of her special skills is the way she gets people to relax and interact, which has proofed to be a gift when working with a multicultural group scattered in different locations and often working under time pressure. She is also an excellent speaker and moderator and has a good background and understanding of cleantech industry and linkages between different actors and impacts.

– Nina Harjula, Development Manager Lahti Region Development LADEC Ltd


It’s great having Lisa Ann, a PR whiz, on your team.   She gets you connected with your customers fast!   She’s an A+ public relations professional.

Lisa Ann has set the benchmark for creative and effective writing, as far as I am concerned. She is an incredibly talented writer who’s easily able to convey complex ideas in an easy-to-understand and straightforward manner. She has always met her deadline and has gone above and beyond the call of duty to make certain our projects exceeded the client’s expectation. You will not find a professional who’s so easy to work with. I highly recommend Lisa Ann for all of your copy writing needs.

– Julien Adler, Julien Adler Coaching

Lisa Ann is a fountain of ideas and keeps her ear to the ground to pay attention to how things are developing. Lisa Ann is a very bright young woman with the right mix of ambition and professional clarity.

You were excellent as a moderator -it was the best session.  At the awards ceremony you brought colour and energy to the stage and helped make it all the more enjoyable.

Lisa Ann Pinkerton was a phenomenal speaker and she shared so much valuable information with us …on how to network like a “networking powerhouse.” I look forward to attending my next networking event to utilize the tools she provided.

I have been extraordinarily impressed with Lisa Ann’s skillful organization and execution of the Women in Cleantech & Sustainability group. She has leveraged her exceptional interpersonal and professional skills to attract female guests who are at the forefront of the emerging Cleantech economy. She then utilizes her extensive experience in environmental journalism to conduct engaging interviews that leave the group excited and inspired. On a personal level, Lisa Ann has been welcoming, kind and extremely supportive of my career goals. Lisa Ann’s combination of personal touch, organizational skill and extensive PR and marketing experience makes her an exceptional group founder. I’m excited to watch WCS grow and flourish in Lisa Ann’s very capable hands!
