What clients say

When Fast Company Magazine wanted to enhance the speaking skills of their senior writers and editors for their conference presentation and guest appearances, they had a roster of experts from which to select their trainer. They chose Lorraine.

When Invesco Trimark planned a national educational tour with their top executives and advisors, they needed someone to provide personal coaching to these individuals, some of whom had never spoken in public. Lorraine was their choice. The speakers she coached received audience evaluations scores in the 80s and 90s for delivery in their presentations.
