"Laurie Ferguson has worked with us numerous times during organizational shifts. Her skills and abilities were a perfect fit in helping our staff understand change, embrace resiliency, and adapt an agile perspective. Being a faith-based, non-profit organization, we walk a fine line between the spiritual and professional needs of our staff. Laurie's background and expertise allows her to address both of those with compassion and wisdom."
- HR Director, Louisville KY

"As part of an adaptive change leadership process, Dr. Ferguson trained 30 of our pastors and elders to develop coaching skills - to work with both individuals and groups in teams to two. As a presenter, Laurie is eloquent, organized, flexible and responsive. And her use of story and humor inspires and engages the learners. All the evaluations of her training seminars were excellent - and people are asking for more."
- Executive Presbyter, Presbyterian Church, NY

"Quickly becoming our professional development consultant of choice, Laurie Ferguson took on our need, and researched our industry and our topic to deliver a most engaging and worthwhile day of learning and growing. An especially personable and thought provoking presenter, she can bring old material alive with technology, current events and real work experiences as she challenges participants to think in new ways."
