Lori is curious and dedicated to knowledge and discovering, then deciphering the new. She has a tremendous breadth and depth of knowledge on a range of subjects in multiple industries; as well as a rich personal background that began in NYC; took her to over 10 other cities before bringing her, 35 years ago, to her current place of residence in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Her expertise includes art and science and the combination that comes from intertwining each. She has an uncanny ability to see possibilities and quickly and efficiently setting forth to realize them.
Her journey to founding International Speaker Collective stems from extensive experience on and behind the stage and camera, in the board and classrooms and on the mic. She is as comfortable performing live for thousands as she is on camera one on one. She has trained countless professional and personal connections from business pitches to family presentations to tv interviews and more. She has helped many individuals as well as professional networks to develop their online profiles. She has managed social media for international live events and the digital backend of hundreds of hours of digital ones. Her writing background has made her adept and mining ideas and identifying and structuring the key elements of a speech. Her background as a former radio personality, DJ, model, dancer, actress and image consultant has also proved to be a great asset in her ability to then help fellow speakers to polish their message from tone to design to delivery.
She is also well versed in the business aspects of the speaking/event/training/publishing industries and has forged valuable partnerships to support future revenue-generating opportunities for ISC members.

René Lønne Ventzel, Co-founder and Lead Organizer | TEDx Frederiksberg
Lori Webb was our 'Master of Ceremonies' also known as host during the whole day of TEDxFrederiksberg 2019. Lori was very professional and well prepared. She insisted on knowing the content of the day and showed up to several meetings before the day. On the day, she excelled in bringing life and energy to the stage without making it about her and at the same time guide the guest through the entire day of speakers and entertainment. My best recommendations.
Lisbeth Holdt Jørgensen, Voice Expert | Voice Inc
Lori really knows how to conquer a room with presence and energy and at the same time share her deep knowledge. As a part of an audience I felt in the best of hands with no dull moments. Her creativity and spontaneity on the stage are admirable and left me very inspired.
Gael Gilliland, Founder | The Legacy Recorder
Lori is not only a powerfully connective speaker, but she also supports and encourages new speakers to start their journey and challenges them to be better every time. I have had the opportunity to see her speak, witness her gift of connecting people together, and benefit from her organizing a record-breaking live stream event. I've experienced first hand her dedication to lifting others up and working with them to create opportunities to grow and reach for goals they never dreamed possible.
Tanja Scot, TEDx Speaker | TEDxFrederiksberg
I had the pleasure of meeting Lori due to the very first TEDxFrederiksberg in Copenhagen, June 1, 2019. Not only was she amazing in hosting and catching the moments as the MC of the event - on as off stage with her great and embracing personality; but she also put in an extraordinary and unexpected effort throughout the process leading up to the event; contributing and supporting us Speakers to elevate our speeches.
Viktor Beregszaszi, Founder and Lead Facilitator | Innovation Haven
Having seen Lori speak on several occasions; I have been very impressed with her breadth and, especially, depth of knowledge. I have also enjoyed her creative twists at communicating important information. If you are looking for a smart, savvy and engaging speaker; here she is.
Alina Calugaru, Founder and Instagram Influencer | Behind the Startups
I was part of the Freedom Speech and Concert event organized by Metta Carter, where I was the marketing coordinator in Nov 2017. The event was organized in the name of Nelson Mandela's daughter, Zindzi Mandela.
Here at this amazing event, there were several important speakers who talked about arts, and inclusion and culture, but the most engaging, professional and lively speech besides Zindzi's life story, was definitely Lori Webb's. The stage comes naturally to her and she alone, made the whole public connect with her, listen to her and interact. After that, I had her invited to do a Pitch workshop as a part of an event called Bridge Week at the CPH Business Academy in March 2018. She did not disappoint! Again, she made an amazing and valuable performance for both teachers and students; using her storytelling skills to explain challenging concepts.
Lori is a package of multi-talent and knowledge in one person. Hiring her will be one of the best decisions you'll ever make. She is exceptional!
Søren Lybecker, Program Director | Technical University of Denmark
This is a testimonial about Lori Webb. I've had the opportunity of working with Lori for a couple of semesters. She was the anchorwoman and talk show hostess of the TEMO talk show at the Technical University of Denmark and she did an awesome job. I can't think of anyone who could have done it better. She was really engaged and created a good atmosphere. Everything was beautiful. So, I think if you have the chance, I think you should hire Lori.
Tórður Pætur Ravnsfjall, President | Toastmasters Club of Amager
Hey, my name is Tor and I am the president of Amager Toastmasters Club of Toastmasters International. We recently started a new club and Lori Webb was kind enough to come and give a speech as a guest speaker. And having a professional speaker helped make it into a special event. She gave a speech about speaking with clarity, confidence, and composure. You could clearly see that she had decades of stage experience; simply by the way she moved on stage and her confidence. It was so nice to see that contrast for all our aspiring speakers. To anyone who wants a professional speaker to talk about subjects like speaking with confidence or entrepreneurship, I would highly recommend Lori Webb.
