It was at Paramount that she got her first agent, which led to her first role in the Elvis Presley movie, "Tickle Me." It was her love of acting and the skills it required that led her to the business world. Laurie Burton Training was born, and as a result she has received international recognition as one of the innovators in redefining the way people present themselves, blending the art of expressive communication with business.

We all love to "use" the words communication skills and support them with words like authentic, empowered, and genuine, but do we live them? I have used them myself. We do a lot of selling with these words, but we tend to overlook are the actual skills that one must possess to be a great communicator. Do you know how you're perceived? What kind of energy do you project? Can you change it in an instant? Are you comfortable in your own skin? Don't laugh, it's at the core of a solid communicator. When you speak are the meaning of the words expressed in your face and body? The ultimate challenge for any great communicator is how to cause people to feel something, to have an experience. A confident, inspired and creative communicator will find success rooted in their ability to express their life force, conveying thoughts, feelings and emotions so that others are moved by them.

If you are a baby boomer like I am, you are interested in fitness, physical and mental fitness. We all belong to a gym, have a home system, a personal trainer, or do yoga and stretching before our first morning coffee. If this is you, then I am sure mental fitness is on your mind.
This revolutionary memory system will help you retrain your mind by a creative cognitive system that is fun to learn and powerful to use.
The value of this is to increase your dendrital foliage and cause your neural branches to increase. Check out chapter 2 in the book “Dragons of Eden” by Carl Sagan. He explains how the mind increases in its capacity. This method is a way to stimulate your mind and increase your mental prowess. We see our parents slowing down and many of our grandparents in nursing homes, that does not have to be us.

Creating a winning mind set, Motivation, Overcoming Obstacles

A keynote speaker and trainer, Walter is known for his exciting delivery and practical step-by-step action plan by masterfully using humor and story telling to help individuals achieve personal and professional goals. In his team-building and stress management programs, he energizes participants from passive listeners to engaged learners and propels the most seasoned veterans to discover new ways to capitalize on their strengths, and how to value differences in others. Walter grew up in a low-income family witnessing domestic violence between his parents. He was then attracting media attention as a rare Four-Sport athlete who played football, basketball, baseball, track and field. However, a fateful car accident stole his promising athletic career, taking away scholarship offers from top colleges around the country. Even worse, doctors predicted he would not survive his coma and multiple internal injuries. Walter proved them wrong.
