Acceleration by design LLC logo


Acceleration is the name we give to any process where the velocity changes. Since velocity is a speed and direction, there are only two ways for you to accelerate: change your speed or change your direction-or change both. 

Are you ready to ACCELERATE your economic development program? Are you ready to ACCELERATE into a new direction? Are you ready to ACCELERATE your strategies? Are you ready to ACCELERATE your marketing? Are you ready to ACCELERATE your leadership?  Are you ready to ACCELERATE your team? Are you ready to ACCELERATE your attitude? 

We can help you ACCELERATE.  


Welcome to ACCELERATION by design LLC, a boutique economic development firm designed to meet the unique needs of cities, counties and regions throughout the nation.  

Specializing in keynote presentations, facilitation, comprehensive training and dynamic workshops...the diversity of the ACCELERATION™ programs were created to bring a fresh, new approach to economic development planning, marketing, trade shows, leadership and more. In addition to almost three decades of high level economic development experience, Lorie has become a nationally sought after speaker on many topics beyond economic development including entrepreneurship, team building, women's issues, encouragement and well, just life in general. :)  She is a dynamic speaker filled with humor, wit and inspiration.
