SPEAKING, WORKSHOPS & MASTERCLASSES

Different Appearances all with a lil' bit of sass and gumption

A Memorable Speaker Full of Sass and Gumption

A natural chatterbox and someone who enjoys meeting new people. It's no wonder that the thought of getting up on stage to share my story, skills and support to any small business or crowd into the Creative Industry is my idea of a great day out.

What Other Hosts & Event Organisers Say

"It was a pleasure to invite Laura to the college to deliver her ‘10 Golden Rules to Build The Creative Career of your Dreams talk’ to our Year 12 and 13 creative students as part of our Industry Inclusion week 14th - 18th February. The students commented on how engaging and approachable Laura was and that they gained some very useful advice for how to get started in a career in Creative Industries from listening to Laura's anecdotes and experiences. They particularly liked the short ‘assignments’ which were included in the presentation and the elements where they could interact with QR codes that were used to signpost extra advice. I would highly recommend Laura to other educational establishments who are looking for a highly engaging, professional speaker who can inspire students and impart advice with a refreshing attitude."

SALLY TAYLOR - SUNDERLAND COLLEGE

"I had some feedback from someone that listened to the episode featuring Laura, saying that she sounded like she had so much energy and such a passion for what she does – so as a guest she came across perfectly!!"

DARREN WINGFIELD - HARLANDS ACCOUNTING EVOLVING ACCOUNTANT PODCAST

"When you book Laura as a guest, or even as a speaker you can rest assured that you will be getting a strong dose of energy, knowledge and expertise and some comedy no BS."

ROB & KENNEDY - EMAIL MARKETING HEROS
