So Relatable

I love listening to Laurie-Ann because she shares stories from her own experience and from her clients about what her topic looks like in real life. There’s never a one-size-fits all approach, and I appreciate how Laurie-Ann acknowledges the differences in various industries while sharing how certain skills and strategies can be applied in whatever kind of business you have. She always brings a smile, which you can hear in every conversation!

Unexpected Pearls

Laurie’s energy and enthusiasm come through so loud and clear in these episodes. The episode lengths are just right for the topics. I recommend it to anyone who communicates to groups in person or via social media. Even if you aren’t looking to book more engagements, you will find useful advice or insight on how to improve your effectiveness. The latest episode titled Improv really highlighted things in a way I never saw before.
