For Meeting Planners

Your Events Shine with Actionable, Relevant Content!

Your audience deserves content that is relevant and customized to their needs. When they go back to the office – they should have identified 2-3 items that they have the tools to act on immediately. That’s what Lori delivers — in a funny, fast paced and interactive way!

Lori supports your goals in a number of ways:

  • Asking about your agenda and adapting what she offers—from content to format to timing—to meet the needs of your audience and you
  • Customizing her programs “on the fly”—to give participants what they want
  • Handling all of her own travel arrangements, making her “low maintenance”

  • Participating in other conference events—so she gets to know your audience
  • Making time after a program to answer confidential business questions
  • Offering 30 minutes of free consulting—by phone or email—to every participant

This was my first HR position, and as a HR Department of One, I had no idea where to turn for information. Along came the mastermind group who has helped me learn how to get the resources I need, present ideas to our leadership team managing my maternity leave! I am looking forward to the 2017 group, and will even participate while on leave!
