Giving Professionals a Competitive Edge

“Lauren’s coaching is smart and sensitive. It really helped me see where I could strengthen my presentation skills, but as importantly, it helped me understand why I tend to create obstacles to better presentation. Lauren is masterful at breaking it down to individual moments where a smile, a pause, a change in tone, or fuller ownership of personal anecdotes can improve delivery.”

Philip Warburg, Environmental Lawyer and Writer

“Studio G has worked with Lauren for many years. She first helped us with presentations for new design projects, but we quickly realized that her uniquely insightful and thoughtful approach could build our capacity for communication beyond as well as within our organization. Lauren has become crucial to our team development and her workshops are informative, provocative, and fun. She is a great pleasure to work with, able to gather what the moment calls for, even when we cannot fully articulate it. She is highly flexible and quickly adjusts and responds to our changing needs. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”

Gail Sullivan, Managing Principal
Studio G Architects

“Lauren is a gifted and deeply intuitive mentor and coach whose maturity and intelligence inspire trust. Clients begin by trusting her, and end by better trusting themselves.”

Sharon Pywell, Author and Educator

“Working with Lauren was such a pleasure. She helped me transform a competent but mediocre presentation into one that projected emotion, interest, and relevance. The successful presentation brought in new clients.”

Improving Business Communications

“I’m so glad I worked with Lauren on my public speaking skills. In just one coaching session, we were able to find the hook — the most important ‘missing piece’ of my pitch — and improve the delivery too. When the time came to present, I felt prepared and confident, and everyone who had seen me pitch before noticed a huge improvement. I am convinced that without Lauren’s help, DynamiCare Health would not have won the $75,000 Grand Prize in the Harvard Business School Alumni New Venture Competition. Working with Lauren is probably the highest Return on Investment I’ve ever made!”

Eric Gastfriend, Cofounder and CEO
DynamiCare Health

“Lauren showed me the power of speaking with my own voice. Her clear and compelling guidance was instrumental for me to gain the confidence needed to make presentations personal and engaging for my audience.”

Adam Klauber, Vice President
Sustainability and ESG, World Energy

It was fun, interesting, and pushed us to be better presenters.

“I can’t recommend Lauren’s coaching services enough. She is bright, charming, funny, wise, and a true professional. Lauren doesn’t sugar-coat the truth, she gives it to you straight up with generous insights.”

Rev. Krysia Bereday Burnham, Chaplain

C. Flynn, Global Conference Speaker
Center for Effective Altruism

Supporting Student and Faculty Success

“Partnering with Lauren in teaching students and faculty to communicate their science research is like gold. She helped me flesh out a curriculum to achieve our program’s goals. Right away Lauren puts participants at ease, makes them realize that they know more than they think they do, and gives them the confidence and skills to communicate effectively…and to have fun doing it! Each year she receives rave reviews and is consistently our top-rated speaker and workshop facilitator.”

Diedra Wrighting, Ph.D, Executive Director
