Leadership and The Power of Words with Laura Penn

Listen to the Episode

In this episode


In this episode of the Driven Female Entrepreneur Podcast, I speak with the three-time TedX speaker and the Author and Founder of Leadership Speaking School, Laura Penn.


Laura has always loved performing, teaching and the outdoors. When she started working for the wildlife conservation society, she realised how important it is to get your message across well, and was able to use her performance background to help the society elevate its messaging and have the impact it desired.


When she and her family relocated to Switzerland, she found it hard to adjust and get back into the workforce. When she felt like she hit rock bottom, she went to a Toastmasters meeting, a club that helps people develop their public speaking and leadership skills. That’s when her love of performing and teaching was reawakened. This spark, led her to start her own business. Today, Laura teaches leaders and change-makers how to speak in front of an audience and get their message across in the best way possible. 


Listen to this episode to learn Laura’s best advice on how to deliver impactful messages to an audience effectively by harnessing the power of words.


Words are a little energy parcels. And your job as a speaker is to open the parcel to reveal the meaning of the word. - Laura Penn Click To Tweet
