As a professional speaker, Laurie-Ann Murabito spent much of her time flying all over the world, but years of travel left her frustrated, lonely, and exhausted. As the travel got harder, she started looking for a new way to help her fall back in love with her work.

Soon, a client gave her exactly that. Now, at Speak and Stand Out, she teaches others how to get booked (and get paid) to speak. She shows her members how to craft a compelling story, engage an audience, and deliver their expertise in style, so they can grow their business effortlessly.

Laurie-Ann is here today to share the story of how she avoided burnout by using her gifts to empower others, how to transfer your talent into other fields without making sacrifices, and to talk about the art of public speaking.
