Lord Cultural Resources have implemented our telepresence strategy

We’re seeing more of our clients than ever before! Why?

As we all work to help slow the spread of the coronavirus, we at Lord have implemented our telepresence strategy, holding all our meetings on Zoom.

We look forward to seeing our clients around the globe face-to-face again once the pandemic is under control. In the meantime, we provide advanced telepresence services that allow projects to stay on schedule, and also offer many advantages: Sophisticated tools (including breakout rooms, survey, polls, and more) facilitate rich participant feedback and interaction. We can also record and transcribe all online meetings, providing a valuable reference for your team and ours.

Some of our most interesting and exciting jobs don’t fit standard categories. If your vision involves ideas not described on this site, or concepts that nobody has attempted before, we are intrigued!
