Testimonials from our Customers


William Donovan, Director of Investment Research and at Partners Healthcare System Inc.

“As director of a large Boston-based medical center, I sought out a communications coach to enhance my public speaking skills across all levels of the organizationstaff, colleagues, and more senior management. I was very fortunate to find such a dynamic, dedicated professional in Lau Lapides. After meeting with Ms. Lapides, she impressively crafted and continuously developed a communications program that met specific as well as changing needs (there was nothing generic about it!). Lau both challenged me and supported my efforts to become a more effective and confident all-around communicator and public speaker. My improved speaking skills particularly showed up in the executive boardroom and as a conference speaker (presenter and panelist). Ms. Lapides helping with my photography business. I have also taken acting classes at her studio, which are unparalleled in helping actors find their emotional center.”

“My partner and I hired Lau to coach us as voice actors on multiple occasions. She is a gifted coach who is able to coax the best of her students by sharing her deep knowledge and concrete techniques as an actor. She gave us lots of homework and ideas to play with well beyond our time with her. Lau was instrumental in helping me begin to develop character voices for an audiobook, working from the inside of my body out. She was an outstanding teacher, and I highly recommend her! She’s also a generous and very warm human being whom I greatly admire.”
