Working in groups is a powerful and vital part of becoming a compelling speaker and unleashing your innate, unique charisma. As a speaker, the audience is both your scene partner and your audience. Practicing with a safe, sacred group of like-hearted peers helps prepare you for the real audiences you will face.

What’s possible:

  • You are fully present in your own skin while deeply connected to others
  • You awaken, energize and inspire the crowd
  • You move people – to laughter, to tears and to action
  • You touch your audience with the heart-centered power of your presence
  • You feel grounded, vibrant and in flow while evoking transformation in your audience
  • You are prepared to speak on any stage, from TED talks to workshops to FB lives and videos

Lauri holds a very safe space for everyone to express their authentic, flawed, and perfect selves. She models what she teaches beautifully, standing in herself confidently and effortlessly. In her workshop, I was able to access a vulnerable speaking issue that I’ve struggled with my whole life but never had the courage to look at with anyone. I walked away from it with a greater understanding of myself and of how to create what I want in the realm of speaking. I would recommend her work to anyone with a message that they want to get out to the world.

Lauri Smith is one of the most personally motivating and inspirational instructors I’ve had. Her ability to see and draw out her students’ potential is empowering.

Lauri truly acknowedges the person in front of her and, because of this, she is unusually sensitive and perceptive. She will see you even when you do not.
