  • “Laine has the ability to quickly and easily assess business and communications needs of any executive and then quickly elevate his/her skills to communicate more effectively and powerfully. I’ve worked with Laine for more than eight years and she is one of the best communication professionals and partners in the industry.”
    Amanda Pires, VP Corporate Communications, PayPal :
  • “I have worked with Laine Conklin for a decade – Our relationship’s longevity represents the high quality and consistency of work I have received from her over the years. In most cases the executive’s expectations have been far exceeded and they have become passionate advocates of her work. Laine not only knows how to engage a wide spectrum of executives with extremely varied backgrounds, personalities and business lines, she knows how to get them to best understand how to perform in public forums. Executives walk away with not only the understanding of how they are perceived, but with messages developed during the session that enable them to feel as comfortable as possible working with the media in a variety of circumstances. In some cases – media coverage resulted in new business. The value of public relations is enhanced by the experience and expertise she brings.”

  • “I have worked with Laine over the past 15 years as she has helped our clients better prepare to present themselves in the public forum.  She works wonders with both executives and artists; honing their messages and instilling confidence to create compelling performances. I am always amazed at how well she listens and how quickly she can synthesize a clear and cohesive core ideal.  It is also clear that she does her research and comes prepared to specifically engage on the subject matter at hand. She is truly professional, and I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to create a strong outward image.”
