Having worked with Laurie for over ten years I have complete faith in his ability to deliver sessions of the highest calibre to my team. His ongoing passion and enthusiasm is infectious. Coupled with his unmatched industry knowledge he truly is a one of a kind.

People enjoy the energy Laurie brings to his presentations and learning from his wealth of experience.
Jeanine Scholey, People and Performance Manager, BDO

Thanks again for presenting at our national conference – our team loved your presentation and energy, and testament to this was the fantastic engagement you had with a very tired audience during the ‘death’ slot! Not many could have pulled that off.
Ross Hancox, CEO, Telfer Young

Laurie is far more than just a compelling speaker on the business of relationships. He first worked with our senior team nearly five years ago and we still have people quoting things he said! More importantly, we are still receiving success stories from our people who are implementing Laurie’s ideas in their own areas of expertise.
Nicholas Runnalls FCIM, Senior Manager, Business Development, Deloitte
