About me.
I know what it's like.

I am the founder of LORA Concepts Inc. and a workplace confidence and engagement facilitator and consultant.

In other words, I help leaders make their people want to stick around and thrive in their roles.

I have a unique ability to relate to the issues that affect professionals’ and high achievers' confidence, engagement, and happiness at work. I have nearly two decades of experience in high-pressure corporate roles, including business development, treasury consulting, credit underwriting, strategy, employee enablement, and adult learning. I have enjoyed and benefited from each of these opportunities but have also experienced the many challenges that can accompany them.

I bring LORA Concepts Inc. to life through a down-to-earth and genuine approach, built on my corporate experiences, master's level business education, and extensive research. Through effective corporate training, engaging presentations, and transformative consulting, I bolster professionals' and high achievers' confidence, engagement, and effectiveness by empowering them with relatable and simple-to-implement ideas and tactics for elevating their mindsets, honing their focus, managing their stress, and engaging their clients, employees, or partners.

I am an enthusiastic yet professional facilitator and presenter and am comfortable connecting with all types of audiences. Sharing insights and ideas with others energizes me. My presentation style is engaging and relatable. I share my knowledge in simple yet effective ways, using storytelling and humour.

I have been there.

The intense workloads.

The thrill of closing the deal.

The pressure of presentations. 

The challenge of trying to be a good people manager while meeting your own needs.

Wanting to relate to your clients but not knowing where to start.

The stress of deadlines. 

The frustration of red tape and shifting priorities.

Having too much to do and struggling to focus on even one.

The challenge of collaborating with myriad personalities.

Believing so much in yourself in one moment and doubting everything in the next.

Having a job you enjoy but being overwhelmed.

Having a job you do not enjoy and not knowing how to cope.

The paradox of being confident and capable yet fearing failure.

I can help professionals and high achievers navigate these situations.

About my clients.

I work with organizations who want to offer my services to their people - employees, clients, members, partners, boards of directors, or other stakeholders.  

The leaders in the organizations I work with see the toll that high work pressure and an increasingly busy world has on their people. They are particularly concerned about the impact on their high achievers.

They care about their people and want to help them navigate the impacts of these challenges by providing them with meaningful advice and helpful techniques... without sacrificing performance.

 

This is when they come to me.

Organizations use my sessions in a variety of ways: as part of existing programming, such as leadership development programs, employee onboarding programs, capability development programs, and team-building events, as standalone professional development, wellness, or "lunch and learn" events, or as a means of kicking off, wrapping up, or providing complementary content for conferences and meetings

My services are suitable for a range of industries, including financial services, other professional services, manufacturing, and education, and a variety of business types, including small businesses, medium-sized businesses, corporations, associations, and charitable organizations.
