What They’re Saying

Laura is a creative and engaging facilitator. She garners group enthusiasm and commitment from first moments, uniting participants in a deep consideration of ‘what if” themes. Laura cares deeply about her colleagues and participants, an essential trait for a facilitator guiding paths of personal transformation.

Laura Borel approaches training from a wholistic viewpoint. Mind, body and spirit are all considered as she takes a learner from awareness to consistent application. Watching her both strategize for and practice her craft is, in itself, a study in the transformation process. No space goes unmapped, no post-it note is spared, no “aha” moment is squashed. She visualizes not simply the “end” for a particular training need, but how an engaged, transformed learner will then evolve and grow to create an impact on not just him or herself but on the world.
