Laurel Felt Consulting

I leverage my PhD in Communication, 15 years of teaching experience, and background in comedy as Principal of Laurel Felt Consulting.

My mission is to playfully teach public speakers and workshop facilitators how to share their brilliant ideas so that audiences can join in meaningful, participatory experiences that engage, inform, and inspire action.

I support:

  • PUBLIC SPEAKERS who fear, dislike, or avoid public speaking to have fun as they plan, prepare, and present so that they can speak with impact across diverse contexts, from the corporate boardroom to the job interview to the TEDx stage.
  • WORKSHOP FACILITATORS to design and implement playful, participatory, and practical workshops, short courses, and retreats so that everyone’s potential can be unleashed.

I’m proud of my clients’ phenomenal results.

From concept pitches to wedding toasts, my public speaking clients regularly receive accolades for their talks’ style and substance. Every single speaker has “graduated” from our training with strong technical skills and a sense of self-efficacy when it comes to public speaking. Being able to speak with confidence, my clients confide, has made all the difference career-wise.

I’ve worked with individuals and organizations to develop and facilitate meaningful educational opportunities, including the USC Dornsife Joint Educational Project; USC Annenberg Innovation Lab; African Network for Health Education (Senegal); Expanding Minds Program (India).

Drop me a line — I look forward to connecting!
