“If you’re looking for someone to jump start and empower your team to get them to achieve their goals then I highly recommend you hire Lori Hanson. She is amazing!
Lori on behalf of the Women of Key, I would like to thank you for your assisting us with kicking off our new program. Your energetic and motivating tips were very empowering. Everyone left grateful and inspired that they could achieve anything, if they take care of themselves first. Your tips definitely benefit all employees in any organization. I had women come up to me and tell me as they were leaving, that they were excited to share your tips and books with family members!”

“Lori Hanson’s closing keynote for the ADA’s Health and Well Being Conference was the best program of the conference. I was fortunate enough to attend her program and to watch her tie the conference together as the closing speaker of the conference. After a full day of programs it was a most welcome closing session. Her personal journey and stories really connected with our attendees. She inspired us to believe that anything is possible. She delivered her motivational message with lots of laughs, a burst of energy and created a lasting impression.
If you’re looking for a dynamic keynote speaker with a different flavor to spice up your conference or event, I highly recommend Lori Hanson. She will challenge, entertain and motivate your attendees to take action.”

Keynote Speaker, Women in Manufacturing (WiM)
“Lori’s program Go for Gold: 3 Keys to Fuel Your Brain for Success was a great New Year’s Kickoff for our Colorado Women in Manufacturing chapter. We hosted a virtual event where Lori took us through how to focus your mind and body to achieve your goals. She led the group through an exercise to articulate a key goal for one’s life and gave good tips on how to go about achieving the goal as part of one’s daily routine.
Lori’s presentation was very energetic and inspiring. More than half the group stayed for an optional 30-minute Q&A where she worked with each person to create a meaningful affirmation.
I was impressed that Lori took big ideas, like having no limits and believing in yourself and coupled them with concrete “doable” actions to shift one’s mindset, like her Morning Mindset and using daily affirmations. Her empathetic style and genuine interest in helping everyone who joined us for Go for Gold was an uplifting experience to be part of. I would highly recommend her.

“I had the pleasure of presenting with Lori at the Assoc of School Business Officials International Annual Conference on the topic of leading authentically. As an Executive Coaching Client, I invited her to speak to share what I had learned from her, with my peers. Not only was the session engaging but it also provided an opportunity for the audience to participate in activities to create space to get clarity on what they want to accomplish as leaders – as well as setting a mindset to achieve that objective. Participants gained a greater understanding of themselves and steps to help them be an authentic leader. I am in sincere gratitude for having been able to share Lori’s passion and tools with the group!”

“Dress for Success Denver‘s Professional Women’s Group was honored to have Lori Hanson as our guest speaker. She presented to our multicultural, economically diverse group which is not an easy task, yet Lori was able to capture everyone’s attention with her dynamic personality and sense of humor.
Lori’s presentation was highly interactive. This allowed the group to remain enthusiastic, open to learning and more willing to commit to making the desired changes in their life in order to achieve their definition of success.

“Lori delivered an inspirational talk to my team, giving us insight into the power of visualization, objective clarity, and meditation.
She explained with one powerful sentence how fear can prevent us from making the leaps in life, “fear is just excitement without the breath,” and gave us pointers on how to overcome it and remove obstacles to success and peace.
Lori is engaging, motivating, and relaxing at the same time. And she shares useful tools for help along the path to achieve life goals/potential and inner peace.“

“Lori was the first speaker for our new Women’s Initiative Network (WIN). Her Go for Gold Program was a nice fit to help us kick off a goal setting initiative for the group.
Lori’s energy and enthusiasm kept our (virtual) attendees engaged. We loved her transparency and personal stories on setting and reaching goals. Lori’s personal struggles made her easy to relate and connect to.
We especially enjoyed this “sports theme” as our CEO and company are avid sports enthusiasts.”

Keynote Speaker, Ball Aerospace
“Unlike other presentations I have attended on the subject, Lori’s approach to finding “Balance” was different. Her focus was to start from the inside out; taking care of your personal well being so that you have all cylinders firing when you try to manage the multitude of demands on your time. What she said made perfect sense, starting with what you put into your body for fuel. It is something we have all heard, but Lori clearly illustrated how that is what connects the dots in finding Balance.
Her enthusiasm and real life testimonial inspired the audience to learn more and take action in their own lives. Her insight is something I wish I had in my twenties, but it is never too late to start living a better version of your life today. Thank you Lori helping me begin to find my balance.”
