Kind Words

Showit Spark Conference

Cassie Jones: Event Director

“When I think of Laylee and all the many times I've heard her speak, two things come to mind. Number one, is the way she brings energy into a room and emerges her entire being by pouring into the conferences and sessions she leads and attends.

The second is the heart and wisdom she has to share along with that energy. Her presentations are not only valuable to so many industries but truly touch the hearts of her audience and captivate them while instilling in them business and life changing techniques that are sound, true and meaningful.

 No doubt, Laylee has changed the businesses and lives of so many her words have touched.”

Creative at Heart Conference

Kat Schmoyer: Founder & Host

“I absolutely loved having Laylee at Creative at Heart Conference! She's full of enthusiasm, and was constantly willing to jump in and serve our attendees!

Her content was heartfelt, impactful and had practical takeaways
 (which is rare to be able to balance the three!).

I would recommend her in a heartbeat!!”

Signature Talk 01:
Stepping into Creative Education

I believe that industries and communities thrive when people are willing to share their knowledge and help others grow!

I believe in delivering education in a way that empowers those listening. The lecture mindset can leave people feeling isolated or deflated, but delivering actionable education doesn't have to make an audience feel overwhelmed! I meet my audience where they are, and work to empower and equip them with the tools they need to move forward with confidence. 


A note from Laylee:

Keynote Speaker
From the tangible to the inspirational, I love to mix personal storytelling with motivation for my audience to walk away ready to take on the world!

Small Groups / Breakouts
Small group settings make me feel right at home, with the classroom vibes! I believe small group speaking should be interactive and personal.

Podcast Guest
I love a good, open conversation! being a podcast guest is always pleasure; and hosting my own podcast is rewarding as well!


What to Expect

I'm an open book.

I'm open and transparent about my experiences: I don't hold back from sharing my own mistakes or getting vulnerable while on the stage. I tell it like it is, with the hope that truth and honesty will allow others to learn from my experience and walk away feeling equipped and inspired.

I might break out my Teacher Voice

Just kidding! Well, kind of... I spent seven years as a high school teacher. If a room full of high school kids teaches you anything, it's how to keep an audience engaged. I'm confident in presenting to a room full of people, and I have plenty of expertise designing a classroom experience. (Plus, I love providing handouts and worksheets for tangible takeaways!)

So, here's the thing...

Sometimes I dish out a little bit of tough love. Don't worry, I always deliver it with kindness and humor! But I'm a believer in telling people the truth they need to hear. I believe that even tough truths can be delivered with both honesty and kindness... and we can all walk away better for it.
