I came to see Laura to work on public speaking skills but soon realized I had fears and anxieties - even physical symptoms - speaking up just in professional meetings and being in social situations. I realized I had lost my self-confidence and comfort being with people in reality due to too much time in virtual contact - on my phone or computer, etc. Now, I look forward to speaking in public again, going to meetings to challenge and feel the return of my confidence -- but also the good feeling it is to be in real contact with people and not just through text messages and emails. Through our sessions, I realized it was just a temporary loss due to bad habits I let develop.

Don was a keynote speaker for the Human Capital Institute (HCI) and did a fantastic job! Attendees loved his dynamic stage presence and especially his research on the neuroscience of happiness.

Vanessa was great at managing our event. We had 100 attendees. She handled everything from the hotel room block, to prepping speakers, to handling all the food, beverage, flowers, and decorations. It was great to rely on her keen eye to attention. The event was in excellent hands and I didn't have to stress with any of the details! Thank you!

John was excellent to work with in every facet. He was quick to respond and engaging in the process leading up to his presentation, and his engagement (I wouldn't call it a "speech", as there was so much audience participation) was excellent. I would highly recommend.

She has empowered and inspired thousands to find their authentic voice and claim and create and commit to living the life of their dreams.

Under her watch, the program tripled its size in 2 years. Her philosophy is steeped in the idea that spirituality and creativity are synonymous. Authenticity and humor are the pillars of her ministry. She is the creator of a monthly story-and-song night that provides the community with an opportunity to experience the healing nature of stories. Along with supporting artists, she is passionate about grooming and mentoring leaders and teachers.
