What people say:

I am the Organizer of the Vancouver Business Network Meet-up.  Ms. Laurel Lindsay (Stark) spoke intelligently, eloquently and enthusiastically to my members.

The title of her presentation was “Social in 17 – Successfully Market Yourself on social media in just 17 minutes a day.” Laurel totally engaged the audience with her stories and examples and the depth and breadth of her knowledge around all things social media. She opened many eyes to the potential that can be realized by harnessing the power of social media to build followers leading to sales and ultimately a better business. My members simply loved her.

“I am the organizer of Canada's largest annual Social Media conference, Social Media Camp.

We feature the best and brightest minds in North America each year.  In 2015, we featured 39 top speakers, including Laurel Anne. Despite the tough competition, she was ranked 5th overall by attendees in the comprehensive post-event survey. Laurel Anne is a knowledgeable professional in social media. But don't take my word for it, take the word of 600+ professionals, leaders and industry peers who attend Canada's top social media event.”

Paul Holmes, Co-founder
Social Media Camp

I have had the pleasure of attending two of Laurel's presentations and she is absolutely wonderful.

Both presentations were fun and entertaining but more importantly, I went away with some very valuable tips that I was able to start implementing immediately.

Thank you Laurel for all of the great information that you provided. Your website is also a great resource for many valuable tips and tools. I look forward to seeing you again soon.

Laurel presented Social Media in 17 minutes to our team of financial advisors recently. 

This wasn't an easy task as she had a wide range of ages and social media users skills. That didn't phase her though.

Her in depth knowledge, enthusiasm and practical approach to social media marketing made the session successful. In 40 minutes she managed to convert non-users and non believers with few useful and immediately applicable skills.

Her engaging personality and extensive knowledge make her an exceptional presenter and professional.

I would recommend Laurel to anyone looking to incorporate social media networking into their daily routine.
