Laura Matthews

Director of Agency Growth Strategy
Laura is Director of Agency Growth Strategy at Mirren. She brings experience across a range of industries and agencies (digital, full service, PR) – giving her a well-rounded perspective in her training. At Mirren, Laura trains agency teams on client retention, growth, strategy, and new business. In particular, she believes agencies need to lean in more with their clients. “Too often, agencies limit themselves to a vendor role where they’re seen as order takers. The most successful agencies make the effort to deeply understand their clients’ categories and bottom-line goals, and deliver work that is clearly positioned to impact those goals.” Laura spent nearly six years with VMLY&R, where she led work for Bridgestone, Tennessee Tourism, and Intel, among other brands. Originally from South Carolina, Laura moved to Seattle in 2019 after spending a decade in Nashville, TN.

Presentation Skills - Part Two: Enhancing Your Personal Command of the Room

May 23, 2023 | 1:00 pm
Who Should Attend: this training is designed for those who regularly present work to clients.

The program will continue by now addressing your personal presentation skills – the ability to increase your confidence, energy and persuasiveness at the front of the room, whether remote or in-person.

In fact, you'll learn your natural presentation style and how you can easily add more range. Expanding your natural energy level (without changing it) is key to creating client engagement.

Importantly, those who are naturally quieter will learn how to have a stronger presence, particularly when teams often include more dominant people.

Join us with cameras on and expect a lively, fun and interactive session.
