Laura Hooper

Executive Coach

Laura has over 10 years of experience as an executive coach, workshop leader and programme developer. She balances this with an international career as an actress, voiceover artist, writer, director and producer.

She has run three theatre companies alongside setting up her own training and development business, for which she specialises in working with participants who speak English as a second language. Her experience is varied, and she has worked various roles in advertising agencies, law firms, charities, talent agencies, accounting firms, media companies, hotels, and in education. She uses her background in these fields to better understand the universal challenges of the corporate working world.

As an actress, writer, and director, Laura knows the power of effective communication and how to convey your message with efficiency and impact. She firmly believes in speaking from the heart, 100% commitment, and attempting to have a jolly good time in the process.

For Maynard Leigh, she has worked globally for clients such as Ernst & Young, Barclays, Red Bull, Electronic Arts, Bertelsmann, DHL, T-Mobile, Credit Suisse, West Harlem Group, NJR Clean Energy, and UBS.

Laura joined Maynard Leigh in 2005 and is delighted to support and champion the company's expansion into America.

“Laura was phenomenal. I learned just as much by simply
observing her and how she handled situations as I did from the
formal content she taught. She was a great coach; patient, kind,
and handled challenging situations with grace and ease, and in a
way that made everyone feel good about themselves."
