Lori Heninger, Ph.D.
Executive Director & Coach
Lori’s presentation style is accessible, and includes real-world examples and humor. She has the ability to connect with audiences of five or 500, making people feel, as individuals, that she is speaking directly to them.
Lori has the capacity to draw together ideas during Q&A sessions so that they build on one another and create something new; it is almost like a magic show without the curtains or illusions, and the audience feels as though they have created and own the product that emerges. Which they do.
