“In more than 31 years in business, I have found that businesses do business with people. I truly believe that will always be the case, at least in my lifetime. The constant pursuit of significant improvement is very high on the chart of our business team and its leadership. We were looking to gain a greater intuitive understanding of our clients, prospects and marketplace so we can better help them. I was introduced to Laura Bruno. WOW – (With Out Words) is the best description. Laura has insight, expertise on relationships and a delivery method that I have not previously encountered. If you have the opportunity to work with Laura to take your life and business to the next level, you should take action today. If you have any questions about Laura Bruno, please contact me.”

"Laura’s programs have had an incredible impact on my Business Brokerage business. As a result of her work, my referrals have more than tripled and my income has more than tripled too! No small feat! Her system is both fun and effective for me to implement and use. If you are responsible for your own businesses success or have a major responsibility to generate your own business, Laura’s programs will be effective for you. It is the most powerful system I have found in the 30+ years of being an entrepreneur. She doesn’t work with everyone she meets, but if you are a seasoned professional looking to break through to another level…she has what you need!”

"Laura is the number one business consultant when you want to increase your business. In my technology business we underwent the paradigm shift from receiving quality business leads via our business partners/vendors to having to pound the pavement for new clients. I needed to engage in business networking. But, investing in business networking is expensive and time consuming. To maximize my conversation rates, Laura taught me all about the different behavior styles. With her DISC testing, one gets knowledge of our natural and adaptive personalities and how we will gain business advantages when we can then recognize our business partners, our lead generators and our client’s personalities. If you want to stop leaving money on the table, I recommend you hire Laura A. Bruno.”

 “As the International President of the Global Speakers Federation I get to see many business experts and speakers in my world travels. I had the opportunity to see Laura Bruno present in Los Angeles in July 2009 and was very impressed. Her depth of knowledge is obvious and from talking with her participants she walks her talk also. What impressed me most was her ability to hold a room of obvious entrepreneurs spell bound for nearly four hours, sharing stories and information in a way that appealed to everyone in the room. If you are looking for an expert and a brilliant presenter I heartily recommend Laura to you.”

Lindsay Adams

International President, Global Speakers Federation

“I really believe in Laura’s clear and powerful message: “treat others as THEY want to be treated.” It’s her “platinum rule” upgrade to the golden rule and she does a fantastic job in her coaching of helping business owners and professional advisers apply it in their business development and client service efforts. I’ve been a client of Laura, attended her workshops, and recruited her to speak to a couple of different organizations for which I served as a board member. I’m a big fan of her work with the DISC behavioral test.”

“Laura is GREAT at her craft. She practices what she preaches and is a delight to be around and work with.

Laura is passionate, knowledgeable, and dynamic. Her classes are impressive to say the least. She has a depth of knowledge that is immeasurable. Laura is able to present the content of courses to a variety of personality types with ease and grace. She is truly a professional and the classes she teaches are extremely valuable to any business owner, entrepreneur, or manager. The tools I learned from Laura have made a difference in my business.”

“If you’re looking for a way to build more meaningful business relationships, I strongly suggest that you pick up the phone and call Laura immediately. What I pay for her help is nominal in comparison to what I get out of my relationship with her. Quite simply, she is one of the most incredible people that I have ever met.  Having Laura at my side has greatly accelerated my learning curve with how to market myself and it has instilled in me a great deal of confidence. I can’t even begin to share how many over-the-top Laura Bruno endorsements have already poured out of me, but I’m certain they will continue and grow stronger as my relationship with her develops.”

“I had the privilege of attending the DISC Workshop and I found it to be very informative. Laura is engaging, straightforward, and genuine. To assess myself and have others assess me has given me a new perspective and when Laura sheds light on what you learn, the experience is eye opening. I have urged the members of my firm to attend this workshop. It will aid them tremendously when working with one another, with clients, and when networking. I certainly find myself more conscious of my words and actions and am trying to be more tuned in to the behavioral styles of others. I wholeheartedly endorse Laura Bruno and her DISC Workshop.”

“I have attended many of Laura’s classes and have found them to be quite useful. The benefit is that one can identify and isolate ones strengths and weaknesses when making introductions and following up. Understanding the relationship process is very different than understanding the sales process. I really appreciated the personal one-on-one time Laura gave me. It is such a wonderful feeling to have someone really want to understand what I do and who I serve. Laura then helped me create a clear target market outline that I can share with others who want to refer my ideal client to me as well as to differentiate myself from others. Thanks Laura!!”

“While growing my business, I had lots of questions and would not be where I am today without Laura’s continued coaching and support. She understands the mindset and can anticipate necessary changes and adjustments to make a business a success.”

Brian Walker

“I was fortunate to hear Laura speak at a networking event in 2011 and she caught my attention with her fresh/deeper approach to professional networking. I was searching for a way to bring in more and better leads for my own consulting business since my current methods weren’t working as well as I would have liked. After taking her classes and meeting with her one on one, I can say that Laura absolutely has the goods! Since I started using her methods my leads and referrals have doubled. Even better, the quality of these referrals is far superior and my overall revenue has increased 100%. She is one of the best trainers I have ever been exposed to. If you are a consultant, independent contractor, business owner or sales rep, take her courses, you will see results!”

Nancy Clauss

“Laura started ‘Practicing what she preaches’ when I first met her. She found out what type of business I owned, she listened, and instantly knew who I need to ‘partner with.To this day, over 5 years later, I work with that business which Laura introduced me to. The impressive thing about this is she knew me for 5 minutes and was already helping me grow my business! But what she what she taught me was how to build relationships. Laura is a wonderful teacher and an even more wonderful person. Her class is a valuable tool for new business owners seeking to spend less time “cold-calling” and waiting for the phone to ring, and more time creating an effective sales force through business partners.”

“Our company hired Laura Bruno to conduct DISC training for our 20 employees. We were somewhat hesitant and skeptical at first, but Laura quickly developed a rapport with our group. After ensuring us that the training would be fun, we loosened up and truly had an enjoyable learning experience. Remarkably, our employees have begun using the terminology and concepts in their everyday dealings with fellow employees and clients. I would not be surprised if many of them have begun to use the concepts learned in their personal lives as well. We truly learned how to better interact with different types of people, and I believe that we will improve our overall ability to provide customer service as well. Thank you.”

She offers incredible knowledge/training, is very connected and has a “give to receive mindset.” If you would like to take your networking abilities and results to the next level, I highly recommend you connect with Laura.”

“Laura believes in the power of people. Laura has coached and trained me to gain the confidence to connect with people in order to help them since 2009. She helped move me from a person that prefers not to work with people to one that can easily get work done with people. The happy result is that it has increased our marketing results by nearly 100%! She trains a proven process through her program AND she trains the application of working with people through her DISC training. On top of that, should you need an engaging speaker for your association events, she will bring the house to its feet!”

“I had the privilege of taking Laura Bruno’s DISC workshop on Behavioral Styles. Before taking Laura’s class, I knew that it was important to adjust your selling style based on personality types and how people were reacting to you. After taking Laura’s class I realized that taking the DISC assessment made me much more effective at understanding buying styles and I am definitely encouraging my clients to take the class! In addition to having my eyes opened in new ways, I also landed several new clients! I highly recommend all of Laura’s classes if you are looking to increase your base and to better understand people’s personalities! Laura is an expert at what she does and always ‘walks her talk’. Whether you need a keynote speaker or an excellent trainer, Laura Bruno will make an impact on your company!”

Ursula Mentjes

“To all who want to grow professionally and personally. I spend thousands of dollars a year on continuing professional education and personal growth seminars, some I consider good investments, some not so good. The training program taught by Laura Bruno has been one of the BEST INVESTMENTS I have made both for business growth and personal development. With the profit from just one referral I received while still in class, I was able to fund the investment, and the increase in my bottom line has not stopped. I have developed a circle of strategic partners, which will insure my business continues to grow. On a personal note, I have learned how to build stronger relationships with my clients. I have also met many people with similar goals and focus that I now share friendships with. I highly recommend Laura. I know that I will continue to refer her to my valued business clients.”

Daniel Greene

“I have been working with Laura Bruno for months now as my Business Coach. She taught me how to adapt to the styles of other people who are prospects, clients, colleagues, centers of influence, etc. by recognizing their personal style and then treating them the way they want to be treated. In addition, my ProVisors and LinkedIn sites are now fully populated with information that is right on, professional, and to the point. She has also helped me to develop my centers of influence, the key characteristics of my ideal client in a format I can give to others looking to send people my way, and the areas of my business that I most enjoy and where my time is best spent. I am looking forward to accomplishing much more.”
