Laurie Burton is an internationally recognized speaker, innovator and author who has helped thousands of people improve their ability to communicate effectively, in order to create more success in business and in life.

The author of Presenting You, Laurie’s techniques generate dramatic results in an amazingly short time. Promoting the use of each individual’s unique passion, energy and animation, she encourages attendees to her workshops to be comfortable with themselves, and work through their anxieties,creating more effective opportunities to lead, inspire,express,and sell!

In 1985 Laurie became a senior lecturer at the University of California, School of Cinematic Arts, where she taught acting and directing for film in both graduate and undergraduate programs. There, Laurie developed training sessions with a focus on what she believes is one of the most dynamic, yet overlooked tools available for expressing ourselves – the human body, or Human Instrument.
