What Clients Are Saying:
“Laurie has been a great coach and tremendous help in improving the quality of my presentations. The use of practice sessions / video tools as well as current best practice training were well balanced and supported the learning process.

Her openness and honesty as well as willingness to assist in many complementary areas (effective video/teleconferencing, tone, posture, stress management etc.) made her a real pleasure to work with. She has made herself available to support and provide feedback on day-to-day issues/questions during our time together.

I fully recommend and endorse her services. ”
—JOE DIZAZZO, Regional Chief Executive, Latin America Crafts at Coats

Do the words “You need to speak at our next meeting” send chills down your spine?  You’re not alone. Many people would rather visit their dentist than speak in front of a group. Despite that fear, you want to nail your next presentation.  You want to be perceived as the confident and capable professional you really are.

That’s where I come in. I work with people who want to take their presentation skills up a notch and gain confidence, even in situations they feel are highly stressful. In our initial meeting we can discuss your specific needs. Together, we’ll work on your non-verbal communication (including how to manage your nerves), PowerPoint slides, organizing your thoughts, and opening and closing your presentation.

My goal is to create a safe environment where you can experiment, grow and build muscle memory. Then, when you stand in front of a real audience—peers, bosses, clients, anyone—you will show them your best self.
