Laura's Six-Step Process Starts with Thorough Preparation.

Laura can conduct anything from a one-hour keynote to a multi-day program that delves into more depth. She customizes her programs specifically for your group. Some popular requests can be seen here

Her process is a systematic six-step approach:

  1. Laura asks the client to fill out a detailed pre-meeting questionnaire that allows her to get a clear idea of the issues from the client's point of view and what seeds they may want planted.
  2. She then interviews stakeholders to ensure that she understands their mindset and needs.
  3. Following the interviews, Laura fully customizes the program to the client's needs
  4. Next step is to present the program, take questions, and make time to interact with attendees
  5. 60-day free email consultation is the fifth step, for any questions from attendees that may arise after the program
  6. Finally, Laura debriefs the client on what she has learned, and offers suggestions based on the knowledge learned
