Lisa Williams Speaker Biography

Dr. Williams is a respected researcher, national columnist and award-winning speaker. She is the President and CEO of Williams Research, Inc. and the author of several books including, Leading Beyond Excellence and the soon to be released Stop Struggling: Get Rich-- Stay Rich! As a former professor at Penn State University and a two-time endowed chair holder, she has dedicated her life to educating and developing future and current leaders. Major corporations and President Clinton's Commission on Critical Infrastructure Protection have sought her advice. Dr. Williams' research has practical and global implications and as such she has spoken to audiences in the United States, Belgium, Austria, Canada, London and Australia.

While featured in magazines for her expertise in business, she is also known for her ability to motivate executives, future leaders and audiences of all sizes. Her peers and students alike recognize her as a leader in the field of business and supply chain management. She has received many teaching awards and recognition from The Ohio State, Penn State, and the University of Arkansas. Dr. Williams has been ranked by the most prestigious journal in the field for the number of articles published. Her research has been published in the Journal of Marketing Channels, Journal of Business Logistics, the Transportation Journal, The International Journal of Physical Distribution and Logistics Management and the International Journal of Logistics Management. Her column Profiles in Leadership is published in the Supply Chain Management Review Magazine. She also writes a column on business issues for New Age Retailer and other national magazines.

Dr. Williams has been given the highest honor bestowed upon a faculty member-an endowed chair. Upon receiving the award she said, "This is like receiving the Academy Award for Faculty". Actually, Dr. Williams has been given this honor --not once but twice-- in three years. As the first female to hold a multimillion dollar endowed chair in her field, the first African American female to graduate from The Ohio State University's Marketing and Logistics Department and the second woman in her discipline to become a full professor, she has committed herself to exceptional scholarship. In fact her accomplishments were recognized when she was given the American Marketing Association PhD. Project Trailblazer Award.
