Laura Drury

Psst! - did you know?

Eating is Laura’s first love, but baking comes a close second. Not only does she enjoy the process, but she can rest easy in the knowledge that, if all else fails, there will always be cake.

During a quiet patch in her career, Laura made a bit of money on the side baking carrot cakes, brownies and French toast cupcakes (yes, they are a thing) for her local pub.


Vital Stats

  • Who or what makes you laugh until it hurts?

    I see humour everywhere, laugh easily (mostly at myself), and sometimes wonder whether I’m in my own fly-on-the-wall version of the Truman Show. I’m constantly looking for hidden cameras…
  • What would your superpower be?

    Infecting cruel people with kindness.
  • What's the nicest thing anyone ever said to you?

    During an education workshop I facilitated before I had children, a little girl asked me whether I had any of my own. When I replied that I didn’t, she told me I would make a lovely mummy.
  • What's the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to you?

    Being picked out of a studio audience by Joan Rivers for my childhood nickname ‘Fuzzy Wuzzy’. This was made more embarrassing when I realised that I’d misread the pre-show form which asked the audience for their ‘romantic’ nicknames. Unfortunately there were definitely cameras filming.
  • What's your mantra?

    You’re never fully dressed without a smile.

Laura began her professional career as a performer and trained at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts. Her passion lay in theatre; particularly Shakespeare, comedy and farce. She always felt she had great comic... wait for it... timing!

She started delivering communication skills programmes as a ‘side-line’ but rapidly became interested in the psychology behind the work, and trained as a coach. She became passionate about helping others believe in themselves and achieve their goals. Laura is determined to help as many people as possible experience what positive psychology can do for them.

Over the past eleven years, Laura has created, delivered and facilitated various training programmes at all levels within the public and private sectors. Some of her more recent clients include; EE, SSP, the CIPD, the Civil Service, Global and Exterion Media. She specialises in communication, impact, influence, coaching and leadership.

Laura has also worked in education with the English Pocket Opera Company; devising opera workshops for children from ages 3 to 11. She has delivered physical education sessions based on mathematics for Key Stage 1 and facilitated programmes to raise financial awareness for teenagers.
Described by her husband as vertically challenged (or just small), Laura is as spirited and determined as she is short. She is also warm, intuitive and has the ability to create an instant rapport with those she works with, using humour to help them push boundaries and go outside their comfort zones.
