Speaker. Coach. Facilitator.



My love for speaking began with a Grade 6 public speaking contest. I won the city-wide competition with a compelling speech about noses. I can still recite it. I still love speaking. My topics have evolved.

These are tried and proven:

- You Can’t Train Culture.
- Your Life. Your Choice. On Purpose.
- Stress, Optimism and Your Well-Being.
- Restoring Civility – Being Kind Isn’t Hard.

I’m also happy to develop content based on a unique need. Just ask.

I remember when the word ‘coach’ appeared in the context of leading people. I liked it. Coaching is both present and future-focused and leads to clarity and action.

You can expect a collaborative approach when working with me. It’s your agenda. I will help you get focused, address obstacles (real or perceived) and hold you to the goals you define.

I’ve coached individuals at all levels and every stage of their career to assume leadership roles, change careers, manage life transitions and generally lead their lives to be in better alignment with who they are.

Last year I was invited to interview for a high profile, professional leadership position. I realized it was an opportunity of a lifetime and I needed professional help to prepare. Without a doubt, my preparation (with Lori’s guidance) played a key role in helping me refine my main messages and build my confidence, and shortly after my interview, I was offered the job. I would highly recommend Lori to anyone looking for personal coaching!

I had my first taste of facilitation early in my career. One of the best leaders I know asked if I would facilitate a strategic planning session. I haven’t looked back.

I bring adult learning principles, humour, story-telling, experiential activities and applicability to every workshop and program.

I inspire, challenge and compel participants to reach for more. I am happy working with groups of all sizes. I build content. I’m also happy to facilitate your existing programs.
