About Laura:

In 2014 the opportunity to introduce U.S. President Barack Obama's Address to European Youth changed her from a community organiser and minor civil servant into the youngest political speechwriter at the European Commission. 

After the EU membership referendum in 2016, she returned home to Scotland to help profit for purpose startups make the case for benevolence in business. In 2018 she started Vocalcoach, a leadership communications agency through which she provides ghostwriting services and speech writing instruction to mission-led organisations.
