His advice is easy to understand and in a humble way he encourages the professionals to raise their brand to the next level. And then he clearly tells you how to do so… step by step. He has given me more nuts and bolts advice in a fewer speaking engagements than I have heard from a lifetime of presenters. He is worth every penny and will be an asset to your program.

“Brian Lawrence shared his insights with an Association of Bridal Consultants webinar: “12 Steps to Marketing Success”. It was excellent. After listening to him I contacted him to see if he could make some improvements to my website that would attract more customers for my Professional Wedding Services. Brian gave me big global tips as well as simple tips to make things more believable and thus raise my profile to potential clients. It was great. Well worth my time and money. The best part is that Brian knows the wedding industry so he can help busy wedding professionals.” – Gloria Boyden, Director of Education, Association of Bridal Consultants
