“Laura has been hugely supportive of me, encouraging me to give presentations, providing me with extensive feedback on my projects, products and services and allowing me to grow into a confident and capable facilitator. Without Laura’s extensive interest in my business, gentle encouragement and wise words, I can definitely say I would not be where I am now. She is a trusted advisor in every sense.” Linda Parkinson-Hardman
