We were blown away

. . . by Lorna McLaren when we brought her in to speak at our event at the hospital. Never laughed or learned so much!  She was spot on in knowing the stress we go through and provided so many tips. Everyone loved her humor, energy, and ability to engage and inspire. Elated with the positive responses from our staff!

What clients are saying

"The committees met in late October and compiled lists of topic and speaker suggestions for me to assemble into a complete seminar program. One of the encore speakers included on that list was … Lorna McLaren who ranked in the top 10 speaker list for both her sessions! And two top 10 performances are even more impressive when noted that there were 189 speaker sessions on that list!!

Dynamic, entertaining, everyone was fully engaged the entire time! A few of us needed to go to the bathroom but chose to stay as we didn't want to miss a thing. Never been as riveted by a conference speaker as we were with Lorna McLaren. We invited her back 3 more times to speak at our Annual Judicial Case Managers Conference.

Junn Hartwell, Manager

“Lorna was an excellent presenter. She kept us engaged through humour and facts and statistics. Very interesting, made a lot of everyday associations so we could relate. Best seminar I’ve ever been to and I’ve learned a lot I can use in my workplace and everyday life! Thank you Lorna”

Mandy Parker, Product Manager

“Lorna is an excellent program leader – her examples gave me goosebumps & inspired me. Although I feel demoralized and demotivated at work, she helped me to realize/remember “there is no problem you can’t learn yourself out of” & when there’s a problem you can either focus on it or look for an opportunity”

“I want to state my deep appreciation for the tremendous positive impact you and your course had on my day to day activities this year. Thank you!!!

You kick started my quest for growth. I used to consider myself very much as a bit of a visionary, until I got too comfortable – and the growing stopped. I did ok, but it was not good enough. Once again, through your presentation, I realized I can and must do better. This is what I am grateful to you for. Thank you”

Noreen Walker, Assistant Manager

"I enjoyed learning different strategies for controlling emotions and diffusing situations. Your examples for wording sentences allowed me to know the difference between making someone feel attacked vs engaged and a part of the solution”
