Lori has a focused and clear presentation style. She gets to the heart of the material quickly and gives actionable advice and takeaways. Lori was able to address an area that many businesses want to explore, but few marketing experts have experience in: selling corporate sponsors.  Lori clearly addressed the realities of the sponsor-model marketing approach in a way that the audience could understand and use. After Lori’s presentation, the audience had great takeaways that were practical, real-world and actionable.
