Featured Project

Orbis Advantage, Inc. assessed the chamber and economic development organizations in Buffalo, Wyoming, and recommended strategies for realizing efficiencies to achieve a greater impact to support businesses and community organizations.

The Orbis team met with both boards, toured the communities of Buffalo and Kaycee, interviewed stakeholders, and reviewed documents and other materials provided by the organizations (bylaws, strategic plan, financials, annual reports, marketing plans, newsletters, policies, job descriptions, etc.).

The Sweetwater Economic Development Coalition (SEDC) participated a Values training with Lisa and the Orbis Team this Summer. Lisa helped our board navigate through the process of identifying our values and refining our mission and vision. We are very proud of the final outcomes of our work as board and staff. We appreciate Lisa and her team’s knowledge and enjoyed the opportunity to work with them again to help further our organization.

We are so happy that we consulted with Orbis Advantage to conduct our feasibility study.  Lisa and her staff were instrumental in our ability to secure financing for our new business venture.  Whether you are starting a new business or need business consulting in a current business we would highly recommend Orbis Advantage.  Bear Mountain Beef will be a client for many years to come! Thank You so much Orbis!

They say timing is everything, and the Beef Industry Study by Orbis released this spring was right on time! It is a “must have” tool for those looking to develop a processing start-up, and to those already in business who wish to expand or diversify . The data driven study offers a clear picture of the opportunities and challenges with the industry. I reference the study often as I work with businesses, entrepreneurs, elected officials, and others to identify value added opportunities within Agriculture.

Lisa Johnson brings organizational transformation. Prior to working with Orbis Public Affairs, our organization lacked direction, purpose, and exposure to decision makers at the highest levels. Lisa’s ability, in a very short time period, to elevate WACTE into a position to see immediate returns changed the trajectory of our organization seemingly overnight. She delivered high-impact, strategic, and well thought out plans to 225 members of our organization to successfully deploy statewide. Her efforts were directly responsible to new laws pertaining to the Hathaway Scholarship, Wyoming Works, and BAS degrees at our community colleges in Wyoming. These laws will have immediate and long lasting, positive implications for Wyoming’s workforce and pivot to emerging sectors of our economy.
