Laurie has developed training sessions with a focus on what she believes is one of the most dynamic, yet underutilized tools available for expressing ourselves – the human body. Laurie Burton Training refers to it as the Human Instrument, the engine that drives the way we speak, present and communicate and a major contributor to the success or failure of reaching any audience, making that sale or getting that job.
A 30-year veteran performer of film, television and theater, Laurie has conducted hundreds of workshops in the corporate world, using the breadth of her experience in acting to help people connect more deeply with others by practicing The Art of Communication.
