With a degree in Homeland Security, background in evaluating truth and credibility (lie detecting), and stand up comedy, I now enjoy my days as a corporate keynote speaker.
I lost my parents and my home at a young age, lost a job that I truly enjoyed, lost my health, my entire life savings, and I even lost the ability to trust and to feel safe. But the one thing I never lost is my sense of humor.
I specialize in speaking on the topic of exposing lies through verbal and written statements and I am also a corporate clean comedian.
My most requested corporate program as an infotainer (INFOrmation + enterTAINER) deals with how to tell if someone is lying. I show audiences how they can use words to uncover deception. This presentation is full of useful tips, insights, and most of all, it’s funny.
Picture this: Hire Laurie Ayers for your conference as your humorous, informative keynoter during the day, and I’ll return again later as a corporate clean stand-up comedian for your evening social. Double dipping? You bet!
