BEHIND THE SCENES

Laura Schwartz started her career at the White House in January 1993 when she was just 19 years old. After working her way up the ranks, she became Director of Events, producing more than 1,000 White House events for the President, First Lady, world heads of state and international business leaders. That experience on the world stage gave her the know-how to execute events that match the power of your audience.

Since 2001, she has delivered empowering keynote presentations on stages around the world. Because of the extensive research she does in advance, Laura is able to seamlessly weave key messages and objectives through her presentations, making it relevant to any audience in any industry — whether it’s an intimate gathering of 30 or a crowd of 30,000

Presentations that Keep audiences present

Laura’s keynote is a chance to present the audience with something different — a chance to re-imagine, re-energize, and re-engage with messages they can incorporate into their profession and personal lives. To ensure that her keynotes look like no other, Laura sought out and collaborated with an award-winning motion picture studio to produce her unique presentations.

A keynote for all cultures

Though Laura adapts her keynote to every audience, her message is universal. She uses the experience she’s gained traveling the world over 10 years with a U.S. president — and spending 19 years on her own at speaking engagements around the globe — to connect with audiences of all cultures, ages and industries. Her presentations have resonated with audiences in the UK, Europe, Australia, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, the Americas and beyond.

Keeping things Social Even before happy hour

To keep audiences engaged before and during the event, Laura interacts with the crowd using the power of social media. She incorporates your event’s handles, hashtags and names leading up to, during and after the conference. Laura’s mission is always to be your biggest brand ambassador — and she’s committed to keeping the conversation going, on stage and off.

NOTABLE KEYNOTES & PRESENTATIONS

  • EAT, DRINK & SUCCEED – THE KEYNOTE YOUR AUDIENCE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT ALL YEAR. IT’S MOTIVATIONAL, HUMOROUS AND ENGAGING, BUT WHAT MAKES IT POWERFUL IS THAT IT’S IMMEDIATELY ACTIONABLE.

Take-Away Message #1

Laura’s super-charged signature series is centered on being “prepared for partnership” while turning the “optional into opportunity,” because as Laura reminds us all, “You ever know when the next conversation will be the conversation to change your life or that of someone else!”

Laura challenges her audience to ask, “What can I do for you?” instead of the more negative — “What can you do for me?” interpretation of networking. She explains how positive, powerful networking involves mentoring and leading both inside and outside of the office. And, she incorporates your conference programming and year-round engagement into examples where Laura’s tips can be used to increase results for every member of your audience.

When the event is over, these lessons can be carried back to the office and put to work in professional and personal settings. Eat, Drink & Succeed motivates, engages, and most importantly, it drives action. Whether a first-time attendee or a seasoned veteran, attendees will feel empowered to take every facet of the conference and make it work to their full advantage and yours. Laura pro- vides the tools and techniques that motivate attendees to capitalize on all social and business interactions at the conference so that they, too, can turn relationships into partnerships and ideas into realities.
