About Laurie Krauz

"Working with Laurie increased my confidence - clients now perceive me as more assured and professional."

J. Feldman

Having worked in both the corporate and entertainment industries, Laurie Krauz brings great skill from a remarkably eclectic educational and professional background to her work as a Public Speaking, Presentation and Interview Skills Coach. With a degree in Social Work from Penn State (1976, Summa Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa) and graduate study in Finance at New York University , she began her professional life as an officer at a major Wall Street bank.

In time, Krauz followed her musical calling. She is an award-winning jazz vocalist who has performed with a number of luminaries at such legendary venues as The Blue Note, Town Hall and Birdland and has been named one of the top 525 jazz vocalists of all time in an upcoming book by noted jazz critic, Scott Yanow .

In the early 1980s, Krauz took a seminar in personal presentation to help define her own image as a performer and found herself drawn to the artistry and practicality of the concepts she learned. She began studying these principles in depth, and worked as an apprentice for a number of years before branching out on her own as an Image Consultant. A client, impressed by Krauz ’s comfort on stage, asked to be coached for an upcoming presentation. This natural expansion of her work was so successful that Public Speaking Coaching soon formed the foundation of her consulting business, which she has maintained for over 20 years. For nearly 30 years Krauz has honed techniques, exercises, and tips from the myriad disciplines that have formed the basis of her own training and experience.

Laurie Krauz has helped men and women from all over the world and all walks of life achieve their own personal and professional styles while developing their ability to offer dynamic, compelling presentations. Her seminars and lectures have been presented at law firms, corporations, financial institutions and universities. Krauz has been featured internationally on BBC Television, and in numerous publications throughout the U.S. Her lectures, workshops and seminars are offered both privately and at the corporate level.
