Lorraine K. Lee | Top virtual keynote speaker
I’m passionate about helping ambitious professionals like you stand out and fast-track your career visibility and flexibility. I do that by helping you take control of your professional presence, including both *how* you come across to others and *where* you’re seen and recognized. For those who want to stop fading into the background of your careers and get noticed by senior leaders, grow thought leadership, find speaking gigs, or effectively lead meetings, knowing how to stand out will be essential.
I’ve seen through my own career what a difference it makes when you can stand out. Not only have I been an editorial leader in tech for 10+ years, but my ability to stand out has led to additional professional entrepreneurial ventures I never would have dreamed of.
In 2020, I became a top-rated virtual keynote speaker, and I’ve since spoken at Fortune 500 companies, tech firms, and more, sharing insights on topics including creating engaging virtual presentations, standing out on video, leading effective meetings, and building your LinkedIn presence. In 2022, I received a speaker rating of 5/5 from 96% of keynote attendees, and 100% said they learned something new.
I’m also a 5x-LinkedIn Learning Instructor and the creator of a weekly newsletter that shares bite-sized tips for your career.
