“I’ve worked with Laurie on a variety of nonprofit management issues, from fundraising to building a better board. Her professional skills are excellent. I’m happy to describe my experience to anyone seeking nonprofit consulting services from her. Further, I recently attended Laurie Hofmann’s presentation about human trafficking in Utah. I was particularly interested in this presentation, both because of the subject matter and the conservative audience she presented to. Her knowledge of the subject and ability to communicate difficult truths was noteworthy. Seeing her in action as an advocate against modern day slavery helped me see that Laurie is more than a talented nonprofit executive. She is leading the way to real reform in this largely ignored, yet, internationally epidemic crime and its millions of victims.”

“Laurie has an exceptional talent in public speaking on multiple topics, including human trafficking and sexual slavery. Laurie delivers engaging, passionate, and knowledgeable presentations that encompass social responsibility and civic engagement. I have asked Laurie to speak on three separate occasions on human trafficking and sexual slavery, and I have yet to walk away without a better understanding and increased knowledge on the crises. Additionally, Laurie creates an intimate space where her audience members can feel comfortable asking tough questions and critically engaging in the issues at hand. I have received overwhelmingly positive feedback on her presentations and many of the audience members have asked her to return to conferences with even larger audiences. I highly recommend Laurie as a public speaker due to her experience, positive feedback, and engaging presence.”

"I have had the pleasure of being in the audience of several of Laurie Hofmann’s presentations. She is an accomplished speaker that clearly communicates her knowledge of the subject matter. She is always passionate about her topics and has a knack for involving her audiences’ participation during her presentations. She is an effective trainer and she has done several leadership workshops for the Junior League of Salt Lake City. I love the way that Laurie will challenge her attendees’ to do more...be more...get involved more. I remember one presentation where she stated, “I dare you to go big or go home!” The Junior League of Salt Lake City decided to follow her advice and we are glad that we did. If Laurie is on the agenda, I will always be at her presentation/seminar/workshop!!!"
Vicki Harder, President, Junior League of Salt Lake City
“After the sexual assault, I tried to navigate everything all by myself without the help of people. I was completely lost after the incident because everything seemed scary and overwhelming. However, my life has changed a lot since I met Laurie. She took the time to answer my questions and concerns when I stumbled across the road blocks along the way. She is the most caring, loving, and compassionate person I have ever met; mostly, I love seeing her enthusiasm and love for advocating against sexual assault…”
