Leadership Development & Motivational Speaking
“Pitch perfect is the best way to describe Julie Roe Lach’s work as a group facilitator. Julie successfully combined her extensive knowledge of the world of intercollegiate athletics with her exemplary communication skills and captivating personality, to engage a group of our senior women administrators in a productive and transformational session focused on leadership and advancing women. I would highly recommend Julie, as a facilitator, and plan to work with her again. “

Policy Advising & Strategic Planning

Dutch Baughman, Executive Director of the 1A Athletic Directors’ Association.
“Julie has the great ability to see the big picture and the ability to calmly and diplomatically deal with the emotional reaction to any major policy change while building consensus. Julie is highly intelligent, extremely professional and ethical, diplomatic, goal oriented and thoroughly reliable. Personally, she is delightful, thoughtful and a pleasure to work with. In my 27 years working in college athletics, Julie was the top administrator I sought to hire given her diverse talents and commitment to college athletics.”
