“I met Louise many years ago when she invited me to speak at an event she was organising. I was impressed with her energy, vitality and drive, and combined with her outgoing nature, she was a great joy to work with. Having heard Louise speak on another occasion, she brings that same enthusiasm, insight and energy to her presentations. Using her personal experience, combined with business insight is a truly valuable combination for any business audience.

So for anyone who is seeking a speaker that can motivate, inspire and help people become more resilient, I can highly recommend her. “
— Sue Stockdale, Executive Coach, Author & Polar Adventurer
“The first time I heard Louise present at a speaking engagement I could easily see she has something remarkable to offer. I believe if a speaker can captivate a room with raw honesty, inspiration and useful takeaways for the audience without digital media (PowerPoint) supporting the presentation, you should probably sit straight and listen attentively. Louise is all of these things. Full stop. Let her brilliance rub off on you. Book her for your next event.”
— Elizabeth M. Kit
I have invited Louise several times to speak as I have been so impressed with her. Not only are her talks packed with wisdom due to her many years of business experience but she is also engaging and interesting. I highly recommend her for any size event, you will not be disappointed.
— Angela De Souza
I enjoyed listening to every word you had to say. It is a shame that such messages are not compulsory in life . . . it would save a lot of people much heartache, make them happier, more fulfilled and reduce some of the wasted talent through ‘mental illnesses’.
Sincerity and enthusiasm are infectious, which is why I think you are a great speaker.
— Richard Small, Retired Firefighter
Your presentation was really very good. You were incredibly
generous in sharing your own experiences; both your successes and your
vulnerabilities. The points you made were thought provoking and because you
were so honest with the group, we all felt comfortable in sharing some of
ourselves with each other.

— Suzi Newman Turner
Louise has an infectious optimism and ‘can do’ attitude to everything she does. She speaks from the heart, with a genuine desire to share her experiences in order to inspire others to take on new challenges and grow both individually and in their businesses.
— Richard Tidswell, Business Dr
It was a revelation to hear you speak at the Enterprise Insight launch. It brought
so much-needed humanity, humour, conviction and lightness to last weeks

— Steve Moore @steve4good
You really are an exceptional speaker and motivator in a completely fresh style, a way that is all about the listener and their journey through sharing yours.
— Delia Slucutt
“Louise Ladbrooke shared her story and took us on a rollercoaster ride full of honesty and ideas to take away and use for ourselves. I’d recommend Louise any time you want a Personal Resilience Expert to speak/coach/train and entertain you on the serious business of looking after yourself first.”

— Helen Farmer, Director, VoiceByVolume Marketing and Events
Louise is a very real and genuine speaker. She tells it like it is and builds a strong rapport with her audience within minutes. Her gentle humour is relaxing and helps her message have a greater and more lasting impact
— Jaki Bent, Founder of If Everyone Cares
“I experienced Louise’s keynote speech at a women’s business lunch recently and found her totally engaging. She was open, warm and honest, and her message came across very clearly and most definitely resonated with all of us in the room.”

— Ann-See Yeoh, Human Growth Specialist
A huge ‘thank-you’ for the lovely talk you gave today : I could see many of
our members nodding their agreement and loving what you were saying as they
clearly have experienced similar thoughts and feelings in managing all the
aspects of home and work life... especially when setting up and running a
business.  It felt quite empowering to listen to you and feel your energy.

— Sue Chinnick
Louise gave an inspiring speech on the challenges and rewards of starting
and running a business at smallbusiness|europe’s annual event in Brussels. Her comments had a tremendous impact on the audience, made up
principally of public officials and politicians, and emphasised in a very
constructive manner the realities of entrepreneurship and the obstacles
faced by all entrepreneurs. Louise is a positive role model for all

— Ben Butters Director, smallbusiness|europe
Great talk yesterday...
Thank you again so much for such an inspirational and amusing presentation
yesterday, it will be interesting to see the feedback but I felt everyone
got a lot from it and enjoyed your disarming and honest style.

— Caroline Palmer
Louise has been there, done that having founded, built and successfully sold her business. For 10 years she focused on what is important for 21st Century Leadership - developing robust, adaptable strategies and creating the conditions and leadership culture where excellence reveals itself. She proved that the impact of trust and innovation developed throughout an organisation equals profit.
— John Ward, UKTI Advisory Services Delivery Manager
Thank you so much for meeting up today! Since the very first time I heard your talk, you’ve made me feel empowered and inspired and you keep doing it! I come away from our chats absolutely buzzing with self belief again!
— Janis Phillimore, Imagido!
I have worked with Louise on many occasions over a 20 year period. The work has ranged from public speaking events to Business Analysis projects. Each project has resulted in highly favourable results both from an audience perspective and a bottom line deliverable.

My work with Louise has been characterised by the ability to cut through the predictable politics of a project, keep everyone happy and deliver the expected results.

— Lawrence Hallett
You have come across my mind so much this summer! I want to acknowledge you
for your extraordinary ability to inspire a group of business women in such a
pragmatic humorous and sincere presentation! I have shared your advice on my courses and in outside groups.

— Lisa Craig
I found your presentation delightful and set me soul searching as I
recognised so much of me in what you talked about.
Your talk was as much about sticks as businesses but totally relevant and
your honesty and awareness of your experience and the impact on yourself and
your life was very helpful.

— Shelagh Hetreed
Louise is an excellent speaker and hearing her talk about the “other side of success” was very thought provoking.
— Trula Brunsdon, Sherbornes Solicitors
Thanks for sharing your story. It was a fantastic talk - entertaining & insightful with lots of depth.
— Saf Nazeer, @helpfulpeeps
Outstanding presentation..
Hi Louise, The words of my colleague Gareth Evans who attended the Independent Business Advisors event on Friday. He was very impressed.

— Jill Gorin, Business Advisor
Huge thanks and respect to @LouiseLadbrooke for her honest, funny and inspiring talk at #GoDoAcceler8 this evening.
— Claire Stone
Thanks Louise
We so enjoyed your session.  We thought your energy, vision, ambition and
style were fantastic!  I can’t remember a session since yours where your words don’t come up!
— Melanie Squire
Just wanted to touch base and say hi.  I was really impressed by your speech
at the Business Seminar at the Vale, last week, your humour and
experience was a real pleasure to listen to.
— D. F. Youth Activities Co-ordinator Arson Reduction Unit ~ Community Fire Safety
The #atmosphere here at #iwomenlive is electric! We’re all completely absorbed by @louiseladbrooke Really useful tips, very #inspirational
— Amanda Kerin - Founder, Entrepreneurs in Progress
Just wanted to say how lovely it was meeting you last night and thank you
for sharing your story.  I really enjoyed talking to you and have to say
that before I came to the meeting I was feeling a bit down and frustrated at
my progress (as you say we are our own worst critics and I think I’ve been
focusing too much on what I’m not achieving rather than what I have achieved
- it’s never quick enough though is it?).So a big thanks for the help and inspiration Louise!  

— Carolynn, Fundraisers UK
How good was #iwomenlive? Super motivated by @LouiseLadbrooke, great messages and points to ponder and take action from!
— Paola Davis
