About Lorraine Ball:
Lorraine spent twenty years in corporate America, before coming to her senses. While there, she had a track record of inspiring people to succeed in a changing environment, creating high performance teams in retail, manufacturing and service organizations.
But Lorraine was always felt like a square peg in a round hole; more comfortable with customers and team members, then peers and managers. Frustrated by the resistance to change, indecision, and lack of entrepreneurial spirit as she climbed the corporate ladder, she gave up the fancy VP office, huge staff, and big budget.
Today, you can find her at Roundpeg, a small marketing firm, based in Indianapolis, Indiana. Along with an extraordinarily talented team, which includes Bonnie the dog and Clyde the cat, she shares what she knows about marketing; helping small businesses, become big businesses.
