What Clients Are Saying

I've attended several courses that Lorraine has taught with Electives and am consistently impressed by her ability to connect with a fully remote audience and consistently give real and actionable advice to help attendees accomplish their goals ASAP. She is incredibly engaging and gives tactical advice in the moment - not something that always happens in a virtual environment. As Chief of Staff to the CFO at HubSpot, her teachings are not only relevant for me in my day-to-day, but they're relevant for my team as well.

Chief of Staff to Hubspot’s CFO

I'm the ERG lead for a Women's group at Microsoft, and engaged with Lorraine through LinkedIn to bring her on board as a guest speaker for the group. I was confident in signing up with her for a fireside chat. The session was clear, concise, and had live examples. Lorraine was easy to speak to and had her material prepped for the group.

I would highly recommend her as a speaker for any public speaking opportunities and I am looking forward to continue working with her!

Apurva Bhagali

It was a complete pleasure to bring in Lorraine to Figma's AAPI ERG community during AAPI month as our special guest speaker to conduct a live workshop all about building influence as an Asian American professional at work.

And the audience loved it! They raved about Lorraine's session immediately afterwards as they walked away with more confidence and clarity to bring their best selves to work. They were more engaged in the chat compared to previous speaker sessions, and one of the members shared how thoughtful and beautiful the entire presentation was which contributes to better engagement. She was also super organized, timely, and welcomed feedback (a huge plus in working with a speaker).

I would give Lorraine a 10/10 and can't wait to bring her again in the future!


Lorraine brought high energy and practical advice to our Women Leaders in Data and AI session, How to Build Influence.

This was an incredibly well-received session for our executive leaders.

As the Director of Member Services, I aim to bring high caliber speakers to our events. Lorraine came prepared with so many helpful tips and tricks that our members can apply immediately. Our attendees had great feedback and this event was a win for us!

JULIE HEADLEY, Women Leaders in Data & AI

I [...] recently invited her to speak at Zoom as part of our internal speaker series. Lorraine led a masterclass in engaging an audience virtually, including using cutting-edge tools to elevate virtual storytelling. She was by far the most engaging speaker we've had in the series.


Lorraine is a fantastic speaker who has given two TED Talk-caliber sessions at Cisco. Her talks have been some of the most popular among our group. Her presentations are dynamic, interactive, and filled with real-life examples that resonated with our team members.

I enthusiastically recommend Lorraine as a speaker and presenter to any organization. We hope to have her back again at Cisco soon!


Lorraine gave a session on the topic of building influence to our small group of affinity group members at eero/Amazon, and she did not disappoint! Our attendees gave glowing feedback about how useful and informative the session was. It was packed with a wealth of data-driven insights, actionable recommendations, and opportunities for audience members to weigh in and stay engaged. Lorraine was super professional, and her content made the hour pass by in a flash. We would love to host her again!

AMY jIANG, amazon

I would HIGHLY recommend Lorraine as an engaging speaker who consistently delivers valuable and actionable insights. As a moderator at a LinkedIn Asian Alliance ERG event where Lorraine spoke, I was so impressed by her captivating speaking style, she kept the audience fully engaged from start to finish.

What sets Lorraine apart is her ability to provide actionable advice. She simplified complex and vague topics into practical steps that attendees could start implementing immediately.


Lorraine was poised, warm, friendly, and a fountain of knowledge. I was impressed by her ability to maintain such an approachable energy while also positioning herself as a true subject matter expert. After seeing Lorraine speak, I've invited her to deliver some presentations to my current organization (the sales division of a global hospitality leader) all of which have received high-praise and rave reviews from participants. Lorraine is a pleasure to partner with, and an all-star presenter. I highly recommend her for any organization looking to grow their team members' public speaking, video, presentation, and social media capabilities.

Erin SPRAGUE, Fortune 500 Hospitality Brand

I'm so glad that Lorraine came to speak to the GitLab team during our All-Remote Communications speaker series. Her presentation was engaging, easy to follow, and introduced our team to new and innovative ideas on how to improve our video communications. Her presentation encouraged engagement in an authentic way that made everyone enjoy the call. Lorraine was open to having a Q&A after her presentation, which was a great way for our team members to connect with her directly.


Lorraine did a tremendous job presenting at TWE's Tech Fair using Prezi. She upskilled the team on how we can overcome "Zoom Fatigue" and build virtual influence to better engage with our stakeholders. Our team members were amazed at the quality of the content. Some stated they could not believe she was presenting live due to how professional she spoke and how interactive the slide contents were.

Max Bradshaw, treasury wine estates

To say that she was a hit would be an understatement. Lorraine was so engaging, articulate, and insightful throughout the session. She delivered the information in a way that anyone could understand and implement. The attendees got a lot out of the presentation based on the questions they asked and how engaged they were in chat till the end. Even during the planning phase, it was such a treat to work with Lorraine. She was always responsive, enthusiastic, ready to collaborate, and as kind they come. Truly an honor and pleasure to work with her. If you ever have a chance to listen to her, I highly recommend you take that opportunity.

Tanvi Manchanda, AIRMEET

Last November I was on an Alaska Airlines flight and watched a LinkedIn Learning video offered though their inflight entertainment. I found myself pausing and taking notes and when it ended, I knew that I wanted to invite Lorraine to speak at a BD NOW credit union event for business development professionals.

She's a bright star and her expertise is critical in a world that is increasingly relying on video. Lorraine was a delight to work with - she listened, was totally engaged and enthusiastic about meeting the needs of the group, asked smart questions, and then delivered a value packed session for us!

Julie Ferguson, BD NOW

I knew I wanted to collaborate with Lorraine again. She did an amazing job being a resource for our Black History Month virtual career fair, that I immediately seized the opportunity to bring her back for a live opportunity. Lorraine was beyond what I expected in-person. She is an events manager’s dream, she is organized, punctual and produces thoughtful content for the intended audience.

Her live presentation was filled with great insight about how to present your best-self on LinkedIn. She was an engaging speaker and even stayed around after her presentation to answer audience members’ questions.


Tina Flower, Hawaii Women in Tech

As an organizer of Hawaii Women in Tech, I reached out to Lorraine to invite her be a panel speaker for our session on “Networking and Building Confidence.” I was thrilled that she accepted our invitation; I knew she would be a fantastic panelist because I had previously attended an event whre she had spoken on a similar topic. As a subscriber to Lorraine’s newsletter, I also knew that the focus of our session was one of her areas of expertise.

Lorraine did not disappoint! We covered topics including how to leverage LinkedIn as a networking tool, growing and maintaining our professional network in authentic ways, and managing imposter syndrome. Lorraine offered dozens of practical, actionable steps to our members for addressing these questions and so many more. Her natural, conversational speaking style kept the conversation flowing organically as she addressed questions from our members and engaged in dialogue with fellow panelists.

Our members are grateful for the valuable advice they took away from the session and we are delighted that Lorraine was able to be a panelist. If you are looking for an engaging speaker who brings a wealth of information about these topics, I highly recommend reaching out to Lorraine.

Tina Flower, Hawaii Women in Tech

Lorraine is an excellent presenter. We asked her to record a short session for emerging newsroom managers in a Poynter Institute workshop about how to onboard and lead remote teams, and she fit lots of valuable information into the time without making it feel rushed or overpacked. Her presentation style is engaging whether she's live or recorded, and she struck the perfect combination of actionable tips with helpful on-screen text/graphics to reinforce her message. She was also wonderful communicating leading up to the recording — sharing an outline for feedback, then recording a dress rehearsal for additional input. She clearly understood our expectations and exceeded in how she delivered.


Lucie Sandel, Northwestern University
Lorraine is a “go-to” expert that I’ve brought in multiple times to speak to alumni of Northwestern University. Each program Lorraine offers is incredibly popular and garners hundreds of registrants, far more than other speakers. Alumni recognize her name when it appears in our newsletters and her topics always speak to their interests. Our programs are scheduled for an hour but when Lorraine presents, the programs could easily run twice that length with the number of questions posed by our highly engaged attendees. Whenever I reach out to Lorraine, she manages to quickly accommodate me and is a gracious host who makes my job easier. If you want a speaker who will engage your audience, is warm and inviting, is credible, and has expertise as a LinkedIn Learning Instructor, you can’t go wrong with Lorraine.

What Attendees Are Saying

I attended Lorraine's session on Building Influence for Asian leaders at LinkedIn and it was of interest to me since I have grown up in South-East Asia and am looking for practical advice on how to influence without authority as well as craft-fully creating visibility in the corporate workplace. Lorraine had some great advice, practical tips (love that they were short & memorable) and her presentation style was so engaging and personal. I would recommend her to anyone learning to grow their soft skills with confidence.


I needed to update my LinkedIn profile after several years of neglect, especially when I was notified that my position was affected. That's when I came across Lorraine Lee, who conducted two informative classes on how to revamp profiles.

Her approach was refreshingly simple yet effective. She explained various tricks and techniques, ensuring that everyone could follow along effortlessly. Her cheerful demeanor and engaging style made what seemed like a daunting task remarkably easy.

Thank you, Lorraine, for your invaluable guidance and support throughout the process. I highly recommend her.

Sulbha M.
IT Manager at KPMG

I took a 3-day course on influencing in the workplace and this 1 hour session was WAAAYY better than the 3 day course! I’ll definitely be recommending you to many people!

Attendee @ Cisco

I really enjoyed Lorraine's thoughtful Poynter Institute session. She offered an engaging presentation, helpful resources, and actionable tips to enhance workplace communication and team bonding. I've already put some of her advice into action and I'm seeing great results. Highly recommend Lorraine as a speaker and knowledge expert.


I watched your interview with Joel, great insights about how to build relationships on LinkedIn.

TiffanI Bova | GROWTH EVANGELIST, Salesforce

Your presentation today was one of the most informative and engaging I have experienced for a long time. Your session was so informative and practical that I acted on some of the tips immediately.

Brenda B. | Simon Fraser University

Thank you for your amazing presentation today. It has been one of the best webinars I have been a part of. I learned so many practical tips I can immediately implement during upcoming career development presentations.


Lorraine's presentation was one of the best I've ever seen post COVID. It felt more like a live presentation Disney style. Visually stunning, magical and so fun you want to experience it again!

linkedin learning course TestimonialS

What Students Are Saying

I’ve always admired her work during her time at LinkedIn and this course is just as good. It includes tips for making sure introverts are heard or have ways to give feedback, keeping remote employees engaged during hybrid meetings and an amazing idea for those meetings that don’t require team input - Asynchronous videos. Great ideas in a short time. Check it out!

Nicole H.

This is a very clear presentation and a reminder of why it is so important to get virtual or hybrid meetings/content communications right. Having the best meeting preparation on virtual platforms is more important than we realize.

Elisa C.

So many teams have simply transitioned their in-person meetings to virtual ones, but this course offers ways to alleviate meeting boredom and better use the tools on hand to truly engage each other in a virtual setting.

Jennifer c.

Fantastic course on a great topic! The videos are clear and actionable for those who want to transform to a hybrid workplace model seamlessly.


I was introduced to Lorraine in a free webinar about optimizing virtual meetings and this is so relevant and valuable - more than ever before! Share this with your managers and your teams to learn how to host better meetings.


"Unlock your virtual-first advantage" COURSE TestimonialS

What Students Are Saying

"Within a short time after implementing Lorraine's teachings, I reaped benefits immediately and received the following feedback in my workplace:
-"It's been awhile since I've been in a productive meeting" (Meeting rating score: 4.5/5)
-"Looking forward to the next meeting."
-"I commend you on your delivery!"

Putera Camaro

"Not only did she help me understand the importance of how having better meetings can impact productivity and building a LinkedIn presence, she's also extremely thoughtful and intentional about the live coaching sessions. I felt that she had a strong desire to help the students succeed. I definitely recommend taking the course."

Vivian Lo

"Since I followed the course, it is always on the back of my mind now. I find myself regularly saying: "Well, I followed this course by Lorraine, and she taught me...". The course gave me several insights in how I prepare and execute online meetings, how I use feedback and how I use LinkedIn to create engagement."

Renske Zuurveen

The most valuable parts were: improving your LinkedIn profile and the setup to make your video more professional for meetings over Zoom/MS Teams. For future students, I would say: there's a lot to absorb. Don't feel like you have to deploy everything at once but do make a constant effort to implement the suggestions that Lorraine gives.
