Laurie doesn’t speak to audiences. She engages them by delivering presentations that are insightful as much as they are inciteful. What I’m really saying here is that Laurie knows her sh-t, and she knows how to present it in relatable ways that inspire people to think differently about work and life. Real-speak, not the usual BS consultant-speak. Plus, she’s a true professional — friendly, fun, and a pleasure to work with.
Laurie is a master storyteller and leaves the audience truly inspired. She joined us for our Women’s Month episode of Instacart Design Talks on how to leverage your career and finally put yourself first. She specifically tailored and customized her approach to our engagement to ensure she delivered an impactful talk. 10/10 recommend!
Laurie is a pleasure to work with and she always delivers. She has such fresh perspectives and ideas – you know that with Laurie you’re not going to get something that you’ve heard at every other HR event! Always well-prepared and professional, Laurie captivates audiences with her energy and charisma and inspires them to challenge the status quo. She speaks with real authority – you know you can trust what she’s saying. Plus she always gets great feedback from our attendees.
Laurie has been an invited speaker to the largest HR conference in the Caribbean on more than one occasion. Simply put, the demand for her to return speaks volumes to her delivery, insight and ability to engage our audience. I have referred Laurie several times to others in need of a “truth speaker” that can connect and give real word take-aways. She is a rock-star!
Laurie was a fantastic keynote speaker at Australia’s biggest HR innovation event. Her content and delivery was the perfect blend of provocative, insightful and tailored to the audience. Our community loved the opportunity to connect personally with one of the true global HR thought-leaders with a must-read blog!
Laurie’s amazing ability to connect her past HR Executive experience with her life-changing perspective is something that every Executive (not just HR) needs to hear. Her countless examples of how changing perspectives can change both personal and professional livelihoods should not be taken lightly!
Boston HR Council
Laurie served as a panel speaker at our TX and MA Conferences for Women and her knowledge of the changing nature of the HR profession provided fantastic insight for our attendees. Additionally, working with her was an absolute pleasure as she went above and beyond to accommodate our conferences and prep with her fellow panelists.
Conferences for Women
Laurie has an impressive and unique ability to engage, educate, and uplift an audience, making them feel passionate and energized about their careers in HR. Her approach to story-telling and keeping the audience captivated in a virtual platform was extraordinary. In a world that is increasingly more complex, Laurie brought a refreshing approach that really made a difference in the eyes of her audience.

Laurie Ruettiman is a force that exemplifies the importance of believing in yourself to drive personal and professional growth and progress. As the Founder of TroopHR, a national HR network created to empower People Professionals to drive change and maximize their impact as leaders, I could not think of a more appropriate and experienced leader to engage our community on why betting on yourself is necessary!

When I need a speaker who can light up a room, stir up a crowd, or jumpstart an online event, I immediately think of Laurie Ruettimann. Her insights about work always inspire attendees to shake up their careers and dare to envision their brightest futures.
