Three Keys brings Laura Humphreys to Palmerston North

Three Keys is bringing Laura Humphreys, an entrepreneurial woman with a strong vision, to Palmerston North on 15 October, 2014.

Author of a multi-award winning book, that helps small organisations improve their performance, Laura is a business mentor helping business owners achieve fi nancial freedom.

Creator of the brand franchise Liber8me, which includes books and mentoring programmes, Laura is working to bring her vision of freedom and happiness, that she herself has experienced, to as many people as possible.

Laura begun her career as a secretary in an advertising agency. She then went on to create her own ad agency from the ground up to billings in excess of $15 million, selling it nine years later to multi-national Ogilvy Group.

History repeated itself with pet care business, Pet Angels, which Laura guided from scratch to employing over 150 across New Zealand within six years, before selling it onto a competitor.

Dealing with many personal bumps on her journey has not slowed Laura down; she has used her vision to liberate herself and to reach a position where she has freedom in her career and is able to pursue her love of writing. Laura’s talk is an inspirational one of triumph over adversity and an encouragement to every business owner. As Laura says “if a secretary can build a multi million dollar business any one can.” Laura says she used a simple formula to achieve her success and she’ll share this with you at this Three Keys event.

Three Keys is all about bringing you speakers who are a success in their fi eld, to inspire you to become a success in your fi eld. Knowledge is shared and networks are built, as members hear about the experiences others have encountered along their career path.

Laura is the fi rst speaker of six in the Three Keys 2014-2015 series. Previous season speakers have included Shane Bradley, Tim Alpe, and Sandy Geyer. Tickets for the Laura Humphreys event and season memberships can be bought online at
