Professional Speaking

Lori Vann enjoys doing what scares most people…she’s a professional speaker who enjoys interacting with groups from 5 to 5,000. Unlike many speakers who are monotone, stay in one spot, and read off of their slides, she actively engages the audience through music, questions, and discussions. Her ability to inspire the audience while also providing quality education in an authentic, unpretentious manner using metaphors, humor, real world examples, and pictures aids her audience in feeling a genuine connection with her.

When it comes to the subject matter where she is considered an authority, one can see and hear her passion for the topic of self-injury education. However, her passion for educating mental health professionals, business professionals, and the community on how to keep out of trouble with the legal system while providing excellent customer service is just as intense. Don’t you want a speaker to be passionate about the topics they speak to and have the audience not only feel it, but leave feeling inspired?
