I had the pleasure of sharing a panel with Laura at a conference on viral video. I was struck by how well she related to people and more importantly, how the audience was captivated by her.  Shortly after that, I booked her for my State Of Now Conference in NYC. As I suspected, Laura’s energy and unique story charmed the audience. I would highly recommend Laura as a speaker-she is a charismatic and knowledgeable individual who will inspire and motivate your delegates.

Laura is an engaging and energetic speaker that the audience is always entertained by. The first time I saw Laura speak I was amazed at the humor she injects into her talks. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the topics she presents and is able to take questions with ease. I have had Laura speak at more than one of my events and have always had glowing feedback on her sessions. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her for any speaking engagement!

Laura Berg spoke at our Second Annual ‘Innovative Women’ Spring Brunch. Laura is an amazing, dynamic and interesting speaker. She is very humorous and keeps the audience engaged throughout her delivery. The feedback from our 150 guests on Laura was absolutely outstanding! She was definitely one of the crowd favorites.

What inspired me most when I saw Laura speak at #140ConfNYC was her natural ability to connect with the audience, to make us feel and to keep us engaged. She’s a brilliant talent with a captivating and charming warmth. I trust she will delight many more audiences to come!
