Origins:

As President & Owner of lau lapides company, having earned my Masters  in Fine Arts (MFA) in acting at the prestigious University of California, Irvine  I set out as a professional actress, director and teacher to dedicate my life  to a career in media and the performing arts. 8 years later, I found an  amazing convergence happening of the three magnificent and challenging  worlds that I had been traveling through; Performance, academic and  corporate worlds. Having worked intimately with these 3 powerfully  innovative and intuitive audiences, I discovered a way to create a marriage  made in heaven, under my own shingle. And lau lapides company was  born. I then assembled a diverse and powerful performance team with  years of experience coaching, facilitating and speaking in diverse  platforms. We strategized a philosophy and a mission that accomplished  what was missing in the soft-skills communication training arena, a human  business model that is an immensely personalized high-touch approach to  our clients, while incorporating our uniquely interactive performance model  of tools and techniques that work cross-industry. A special brand of  programs have been developed and geared specifically for women. It’s the  exclusive presentation bag-of-tricks from backstage and behind the scenes! ——————–
