Laurie channels her first-hand experience as a former business owner into a passion for helping others to start up, run and market their companies. For 12 years she ran Persuasive Communications, her marketing consultancy located in Seattle, where she created hundreds of strategic marketing and branding projects for companies of all shapes and sizes. While she has worked with many of that area’s behemoths, it’s the “little guys” she always got the biggest charge out of helping, seeing how small, consistent marketing changes could dramatically impact their bottom lines. Today Laurie provides one-on-one business counseling and delivers a range of business training focused on startup and marketing issues, including Marketing Mondays lunch & learn series, Branding Toolkit for the Small Business Owner, Working for Yourself, Turn Your Hobby into a Business and Learn to Network Like a Pro.
