Laura has spoken across the United States and internationally — at universities, companies, conferences, accelerators, a TEDx stage, and a military base — each time customizing her message to the audience in ways that get them to think differently and do more.
Laura was one of six featured speakers at TEDxCambridge in the fall of 2016. This premier event celebrates the remarkable innovation, creativity, and inspiration found within New England.
In her talk, Laura implored the audience of 2,600 to Stop Asking “How Can I Help?” and taught them, instead, how to ask a better question: one which empowers us all to finally fix the big problems we face by actually serving the solutions, and not just the problems of our own egos.
Want a no nonsense speaker who can both charm and change your audience? Then hire Laura. You can always count on her to deliver the hard truths of business, leadership, and success -- all while keeping the audience engaged and entertained.
Laura is dynamic, authoritative, expert in leadership and discipline, and best of all, as a speaker, she delivers pithy, memorable, funny, insightful, and USEFUL guidance and inspiration to impact the journey of those with whom she connects. She is generous with her time, and a collaborative partner in making an event all it can be. For Girl Starter LIVE, Laura delivered powerful advice to female entrepreneurs and leaders of all ages, and followed up one on one with members of our audience. We were so fortunate to have her with us.
I have had the privilege of working with Laura and to think of some simple words to sum up her awesomeness is quite a challenge. She is dynamic, passionate, and inspires action in her audiences. Her passion to inspire positive change in others is ever present and she is a complete pro in all that she does. I highly recommend Laura for your next event.
Laura spoke for American Dream U at our event in Camp Zama, Japan. She shared the opportunities that the transitioning men and women of our Nation’s military have in the nonprofit world. She helped the audience think outside the box when it comes to transitioning back into the civilian workforce. We can’t wait to have her speak at another military installation in the future!
Laura was great! The talk was extremely interesting, engaging, and concrete. As the host of the event, I got a lot of positive feedback from the audience members after the session.
We had the pleasure of having Laura speak at our Nonprofit Symposium in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Leading up to the event, she and her team were easy to work with which eliminated a lot of stress that goes into planning a conference. Laura brings years of experience, insight, and enthusiasm to her presentations. I would definitely recommend booking Laura if you're looking for someone who is intelligent, fun to work with, dependable, and an all around great presenter.

Are there special discounts for nonprofits?

The simple answer is this: yes though not often, but it is worth an ask.
