Ana LaDou combines a sharp analytical mind, superlative communication skills (she is both an articulate speaker and a creative writer), and ... an engaging managerial style that makes her a distinct pleasure to work with. Her professional, friendly manner instills confidence in both clients and co-workers, and her aptitude for organization and direction ensures that projects get completed efficiently and effectively.
