Laura is an extraordinary professional – talented, engaging and on top of her game. She is an expert consultant and trainer on Executive Skills, Personal Branding and Effective Communications, and adds value to every project she touches. She has a proven record of international business success and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Success is not just about who you know or even what you know but also about how you are perceived by those you need to influence. 

I would encourage anyone who is keen to improve their own personal brand and to enhance the way they are seen and valued by their colleagues, clients and business contacts to meet with Laura and ask her how she can help.”

Especially to those who also wish to take advantage of her excellent networking and corporate connections – so good that she named her company after it!”

She is a real asset to associates and clients, as she is an excellent analytical and strategic thinker. She is one of the best networked individuals I know, across Scotland, UK and internationally and is very personable and engaging to work with. She is an influential figure on the corporate scene and, through various roles, also contributes significantly to high-level business and public policy debate. Laura has one of the sharpest minds I’ve worked with and displays excellent persuasion and negotiation skills and for attention to detail; she is also a terrific facilitator, a very hard-worker, with high, exacting standards of herself and of others. She really does make things happen.”

The coaching experience with Laura has massively increased my own personal confidence and self esteem, which has impacted on my personal and professional life, and kick-started a major period of positive personal transformation in my life. She encouraged me out of my comfort zone, and I’m so glad she did. Laura is an exceptional coach”

Sandra Light, Managing Director, Cognito Events

 

Laura Gordon has a rare combination of honesty and empathy that makes her unique among coaches. I attribute much of my recent success, personal and professional development to my connection to Laura. Sure, I did the graft, but she inspired the belief that it was possible, and when I was asked to coach Oscar winners, she was the first person to thank.  I urge you to meet with her, it’s the first step to a deeper success.

Mark Westbrook, Director, Acting Coach Scotland

 

“Focused, empathic and knowledgeable, Laura marries these signature abilities with a range of interventions and techniques which she uses entirely for her clients benefit. My personal experience was wholly positive and I particularly appreciated Laura’s business and professional background when looking at my company, her knowledge of personal development when trying to gain a new perspective on individual needs and on what I might yet achieve.”

Laura Galbraith, Psychologist

 

“Having Laura’s guidance and advice on a variety of subjects has benefited me enormously.  As Laura pointed out I wasn’t in crisis mode therefore was in danger of just drifting along happy with how things were going and not pushing my own boundaries.  As a result of working with Laura I feel I now have a clearer vision in my head of what has to be done and a bigger sense of getting it done.  Each session is always enjoyable and I leave feeling as if it was time well spent and ready to act on the work we done”

Craig Gardiner, Fitness Consultant

 

“Direction, innovation and planning were my objectives when committing to Laura’s executive coaching and mentoring programme.  Her comprehensive input and advice has been invaluable to me. Implementing her techniques and professional skills has inspired my self-belief and confidence.

With the tools that Laura has given me I know that my future, personally and professionally will be a success.”

Lynn Gilfillan, Entrepreneur

 

“Laura provides a professional service, whilst maintaining a friendliness and approachability that encourages honesty. Not only does she give you the necessary tools, but she stimulates intelligent thinking, self awareness and compassion for others. I re-engaged with the passion I have for acting and was able to plan and foresee a future in it. I couldn’t have done that without Laura’s encouragement and skilled insights. I’d recommend Laura to anyone who is looking for a major shift in either their personal or professional lives”

Meli Bach, Actress

 

“I have worked with Laura on a number of occasions in our present and past job roles and I have to say she is always the true professional, listening to clients, understanding their needs and following through with the necessary information. A pleasure to work with and great connector with people”.

Frances Maurer, Event Sales Manager at The Balmoral Hotel

Laura is a very well networked at a senior level and has opened many doors for me, for which I’m hugely grateful”

Cameron Thomson, Non-Executive Director, Business Adviser

Paul Murricane, Managing Director, Axis Media Group

 

“Laura is an extraordinary professional – talented, engaging and on top of her game. She is an expert consultant and trainer on Executive Skills, Personal Branding and Effective Communications, and adds value to every project she touches.

Suzanne Douglas, Managing Director, Style Capital USA

 

“I’ve worked with Laura through a number of networking events and follow on mentoring sessions in the past year and in my view one of Laura’s greatest skills is her natural coaching style. The blend of Laura’s business experience and savvy along with her genuine interest in people and supporting others is a killer combination. As a coach and mentor I would have no hesitation in recommending Laura – she has been a huge help and indeed inspiration to me in the past 12 months!”

Jean Kerr, Leadership Development Manager, Global Blue Chip IT Services Company

 

“It is thanks to Laura that while she was head of the Glasgow/Edinburgh Collaboration, she introduced to me to GlobalScot. More recently as Chairman of Institute of Directors she invited me to present in Glasgow and the talk was oversubscribed. Every meeting I have with Laura turns up new ideas and suggestions, not only in branding but in many areas. Her amazing network and connections always leaves me with an overflow of actions to follow up on. Laura is a lady who pours her energy and passion into everything she does.”
