I'm Laurie

I am the founder of Chutzpah Consulting and Chutzpah World.  I specialize in creating engaging and transformative learning experiences to help organizations be more diverse, inclusive, innovative and effective.


I do this by offering learning experiences designed to build strong, high performance teams and organizational cultures where people feel cared for, trusted, highly motivated and able to bring their best self to work.


I have a broad background in community work, consulting, adult education, facilitation, and supporting and encouraging innovation.

I have a Masters in Adult Education specializing in Community Development, and a Certificate in Nonprofit Leadership.  I've worked in community, the nonprofit sector, business and government.

Some of my passions are:  social enterprise, helping communities to think in an entrepreneurial way, and supporting and encouraging fearless collaboration in all ways.  I love diversity and see it as a strength in all things.  I also think conflict and tension are part and parcel of collaboration, and can be tremendous opportunities for creativity.

As an Innovation, Learning and Leadership specialist, I take a holistic approach to helping organizations, business and communities be the best they can be.
