“The excitement in the room was obvious.  You did an amazing job of educating and entertaining this huge group!  As a result, we have invited you back to speak at another conference 6 months from now in Atlantic City.   We have never invited a speaker back so quickly as we have with you.”

Margaret O'Neal, Director of Education and Certification

" After seeing you at a conference, Lisa, from our Casper division recommended you when I was organizing our Speaker list.  So glad she did!! The feedback was great. I hope you enjoy reading about the impact you made on our attendees!  Some thought the closing speaker was going to have big shoes to fill to measure up, but Lorna McLaren knocked it out of the park! Very energetic and engaging speaker. Perfect finale. Once again, thank you for joining us in San Antonio. It was such a pleasure to meet you and hear your beautiful message.

“Both of your sessions were excellent – the crowd loved your presentation style, information and interactive exercises.  The most consistent comments were to have you back again and that they had fun.  Certainly when someone can make learning as much fun as you do, I would like to talk to you about next year's conference.

"Thanks again for the informative course. (I gave the example of helping workers with personal issues.) You provided an enthusiastic, informative and knowledgeable course which I was fortunate to be apart of and learned a lot."

“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”

“Thank you so much for the life changing course that you did this past Monday in Vancouver! Boy, are you extraordinaire! Three days later I am still “under the influence” of what we had a chance to hear and learn. I had a chance to read some of the “Testimonials” on your web page and they pale compared to the “Real Life” experience. We would like to have you as a guest speaker for our Vancouver chapter.
