Professional Virtual Keynote Presentations:
Dynamic Energy, Virtual Delivery. Laura makes every participant feel a virtual connection to your message, mission and program.
Laura was practically born in front of a camera, and she grew up in her father’s award-winning photography studio, surrounded by lights and cameras. As a result, her virtual space feels like home, and she makes everyone watching feel the same way.
Prior to becoming White House Director of Events, she was the White House Director of Television where she created the connection between a President and the world by embracing technology and its ability to bring people together. She’s been in front of the camera as a television commentator since 2001, routinely looking into a single lens and addressing millions of viewers at a time, and making each person feel a connection at that moment.
She’ll do the same for you as an Emcee or Keynote at your next virtual program.
Laura is “virtual ready” and uses a variety of technologies with her clients to produce such programs. We have an in-house creative studio with professional equipment including lighting and both a plain or textured backdrop.
