My career has taken me from being a producer, orchestrating events onto the stage myself and now to speaker coach.
And it all started with my love of stories.
From a young age, I've been fascinated by how stories can slow down the world, touch hearts, change minds and move audiences to action.
It's the stories we remember, and
it's the stories that change the world.
My entrance into the world of public speaking was behind the curtain - scouting, hiring and coaching speakers at Women of Faith. As the producer of the world's largest women's event brand, I was responsible for experiences that would reach millions of attendees.
The world changes when you take the stage.
Your world. Their world.
"Lori's confidence and support have shown me I can be—I am!—a speaker!
I'm excited about my next steps, and I know I can do this!"
I have witnessed moving moments when the message from the stage brought an audience of 14,000 to their feet. And I've witnessed the opposite—near-misses when the speaker missed the mark with the audience.
My hope was that one day all those experiences could one day serve others.
As emcee for events with thousands in the seats, I've been able to put into practice what I learned from the best in the business. As a storyteller, I've discovered how to be a powerful influence through my stories.
"Lori made the course super easy to connect with, fun, engaging, exciting and powerful.
She's an uplifting soul, and I appreciated every comment she had. It was just awesome!"
Today, I'm excited to have the opportunity to work with women of every style and niche, leading and guiding them along their own speaker path.
