Laura Livesey

Founder & CEO

Laura Livesey is the co-founder & CEO of LiveseySolar. She has developed powerful refractive surgery marketing systems that increase patient volumes and profits for doctors, clinics, and hospitals, since 1997.

Laura’s work establishes a strategic and humanising “key message” for each clinic and surgeon, that allows them to compete meaningfully and authentically in their market. She then applies these key messages to digital marketing projects such as websites, online videos, social media platforms, email marketing, newsletters, lead magnets, and other lead generation tools.

Laura helps focus her clients on the areas of their business closest to revenue. Laura has been an entrepreneur, business consultant, professional salesperson, educator on marketing and internet technologies, copywriter, creative director, communications director and was the Marketing Director for TIO Networks (now owned by PayPal), as well as the head lecturer for a government of Canada sponsored entrepreneurial incubator program.

Laura believes that healthcare, compared to other industries, is less mature in terms of customer experience and marketing. She advocates looking outside of healthcare to bring in best-practice from other industries. She has worked with companies of all sizes around the globe including GlaxoSmithKline, ExxonMobil, T-Mobile, ZEISS, Spire Healthcare, Nuffield Health, Moorfields Private, the NHS, and many other healthcare clinics, hospital groups, pharmaceutical companies and medical device firms.

Laura Livesey co-authored the book How to Grow your Practice with Presbyopic Patients published in 2018.

“It’s been a great experience working with LiveseySolar. I think we’ve been just amazed at how precise they’ve been, how planned every step is, and how they walk us through every step.”

“They don’t just want us to go from point A to point Z. They take us from point A to point B with steps. They’re extremely well organized, more organized than I think I’ve seen any other firm we’ve worked with, and in some ways I wish we were as organized. And they make it really easy to follow a schedule. They keep us on the schedule and I know that we’re going to get amazing results with them. And Rod and Laura are incredible to work with, as the rest of their team. Everybody’s so friendly. Everybody’s easy to get in touch with, and everybody’s using modern technology and really helping an established practice like ours jump to the forefront of modern technology as well.”

In a nutshell, we exclusively focus on growing vision correction revenues for our customers.

As a result, we’ve learned a LOT about how to do what you do. After 20 years of listening and learning, we’re genuinely qualified as experts.

We know that if you have the courage and readiness to succeed, we can act as a trusted guide, coach and partner to lead the way.

What you think is impossible to do… becomes possible

Before we came to LiveseySolar, we were a 43-year-old practice. Over the years, we’ve been very innovative and ahead of the game, but with the internet’s evolution, we began to lag behind. Candidly, the biggest difference between LiveseySolar and other marketing teams we’ve worked with is that working with LiveseySolar is really hard work, and that’s a good thing. Before LiveseySolar were willing to work with us, they wanted to know about us. They’re a quality team, and so they want to work with other quality teams. LiveseySolar is extremely responsive and available. What you think is impossible to do – because of time differences etc. – becomes possible. I certainly would recommend them.
