Now, after years of developing effective and successful techniques in public speaking, Laurie uses his unique panic-free two-way conversation style to help change the lives of thousands. And, the truth is, all he’s been doing is help people to see things differently and draw on the natural way they already speak successfully in informal conversational settings.
