I have been so fortunate to benefit from Lorianne's services. She has provided the necessary support, mentorship and expertise that I needed to grow my speaking business. Lorianne shares her depth and breadth of knowledge and personal connections in the speaking and blog industry freely with her clients. She is a hidden gem and a pleasure to work with.
Wow! As a professional public speaker for many years, I was astounded to learn how much I didn't know about promoting myself from Lorianne. She took me from big picture to execution without missing a beat. I will be forever grateful for her priceless guidance and direction.

I have known and admired Lorianne Speaks for the past decade and am delighted to finally be working with her! Lorianne is a seasoned administrative professional… and so much more. She’s organized beyond words, an incredibly quick study, and a natural born problem solver. I so appreciate her eye for detail as she offers insightful editing services on a range of deliverables; and recently, Lorianne proofed, finalized, and packaged a complex training project in record time. She’s currently supporting my social media efforts and is laying the foundation to manage my speaking business. In short, I can’t imagine how I got along without Lorianne until now. I can recommend her and her company's professional services without reservation!

I am pivoting my business from in-person executive coaching with leaders (who are not on social media) to virtual coaching with younger and entrepreneurial leaders who use social media with ease. I needed jumpstart mentoring on how to best use LinkedIn so I could make good decisions and avoid tech overwhelm. Lorianne listened to my needs and provided spot-on advice saving me hours of self-discovery and learning. She cut through the mystery and answered all my questions. I am confident that I will show up better and more wisely invest my time and energy in using LinkedIn because of her help. She is just the kind of expert you need when you want to cut through social media complexity and prefer to talk with someone who is a seasoned business pro, not just a narrow expert in social media.
Lorianne was my Executive Assistant for over 15 years and performed superbly in every assignment she was given. Over the years, she covered just about every task/project one could conceive of! She was my all-around go-to person, even though I had additional staff in my office.
She is definitely an “ahead of the game” thinker. My travel schedule had me out of the office at least 50% of the time and Lorianne always made decisions that were always in my best interest when I was not available to make them. She knew my style and the responsiveness I always prided myself on. She acted as my “stand in” on many conference calls and meetings and I could always depend on her to accurately report what I had missed and to provide me with the next steps that were expected and to remind me when they were due.
Lorianne also has a superb memory. My business had dealing with multiple clients globally, and somehow Lorianne was able to recall each one, even when I gave the briefest of “can you remember” descriptions. She was also superb on the phone with all clients, staff members, and vendors who called the office.
I often needed Lorianne to apply her research skills and comfort with technology to find answers to questions that were needed for clients or for papers I was writing. She was very resourceful at finding what I needed and being able to differentiate the important from the less important thereby cutting down my own investment of time significantly.
Simply, Lorianne Speaks is a fantastic employee to have on your team!

Finding Lorianne has been a miracle for my company. I was tackling too many things, and trying to do it all myself. When her team went to work handling all of my “stuff” it dramatically improved my business.
As a speaker, Coach, author or podcaster don’t go it alone, it takes an Army and Lorianne and her team are definitely the ones you want on your side.
