Kathleen Muldoon
formerly Speaker Relations and Compliance Liaison, Wyeth Pharmaceuticals

“Laurel was part of a facilitation team providing executive and presentation coaching in a speaker’s bureau training program. Her audiences were nationally known surgeons and infectious disease health care professionals (HCPs). Laurel's style was very professional, yet personable. She modeled the presentation / facilitation skills we wanted our HCPs to integrate in their speaking programs. The audience was very open to her coaching and feedback and took away actions plans to make personal behavior change. She was a pleasure to work with and we would use her services again.”

Kathy O'Neill

Pharmaceutical research and marketing consultant “Laurel is an intelligent, personable communications expert. She ran a workshop for us on presentation skills. In addition to learning about vocal technique, verbal and visual communication skills, she addressed very specific question about how to be persuasive. This workshop was for a group of mid to high level managers in the pharmaceutical industry who give highly technical presentations to medical professionals. We all left feeling that we had learned some very concrete ways to improve our communication and presentation skills.”
