The Big Cheese

The big cheese with Laura Schwartz

Professional Emcee, Keynote Speaker of Business of Events, Author of Eat, Drink & Succeed!, Television Commentator and former White House advisor. Is there anything Laura can’t do?!

THE GREAT THING ABOUT MY JOB IS…

My work as an Emcee and message as a Keynote knows no boundaries and I am able to connect with audiences around the world. It’s global.

THE CHALLENGE FOR THE INDUSTRY IS …

Focusing on live face-face-to-face interaction while integrating technology without detraction.

MY GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT IS…

Professionally: transitioning from The White House to becoming a Professional Emcee and Keynote Speaker. Personally: incorporating my incredible parents in most all my travels.

I TRY TO RELAX BY…

Paddleboarding as much as possible.

I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY…

People look at their phones while walking across the street…please, look up!

MY FAVOURITE VENUE/DESTINATION IS…

Wherever I am having cocktail with my family and friends.

 I’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO TRAVEL TO…

Siem Reap, Cambodia.

I AM SCARED TO DEATH OF…

Spiders.

I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT…

My fabulous family, they are my everything!

I REALLY WISH I HAD…

A chance to tell my younger self to relax more

IF I COULD INVITE FOUR PEOPLE TO A DINNER PARTY, THEY’D BE…

“2 Queens and 2 Bills!” Cher and Elizabeth, Clinton and Gates

FOR ANYONE STARTING OUT IN THE EVENTS INDUSTRY ONE PIECE OF ADVICE I’D GIVE WOULD BE…

Network in a positive, productive and powerful way because you never know when the next conversation will be the conversation to change someone else’s life or your own.

Or, as I like to simply say “Eat, Drink & Succeed” (also title of my book).
