I want to thank Laurel for an insightful, stimulating, absorbing, thought-provoking and very entertaining full day on the entire social media landscape. The session was highly relevant for digital specialists, traditional marketers and PR professionals alike. It was full of very current information and lots of new material in a space that is often talked about but not often fully understood. I would happily recommend Laurel and look forward to working with her in the future. Blackmores Ltd

Laurel delivered an informative and thought provoking session to a packed house, and was rated in the top five speakers for the overall Congress.

Australian Business Consulting & Solutions

At Inforum Group's Social Media Workshop mid-August, Laurel once again demonstrated her depth of knowledge in all areas of social media and why she was named one of Forbes Magazine's 2012 Top 50 Social Media Influencers globally. After the first workshop which provided an overview, this time Laurel went through in detail a nine-step social media strategy, and the value of Pinterest and Google Plus and the feedback has been great. For many of us the workings of social media continue to challenge but Laurel reassures and educates and makes it all perfectly understandable!
