The Speakers


Lori Saitz

Throughout her school years, Lori Saitz’s report cards said, “Lori is very bright, but she needs to speak up in class.” In 2003, she launched Zen Rabbit Baking Company and introduced the world to The Gratitude Cookie. In order to build that company, she had to learn how to network effectively to find clients and referral sources.

Today, as a networking strategist and speaker, she works with other quiet people on feeling more comfortable networking, starting conversations and connecting. Her services are in demand by business professionals who want to feel more confident initiating and building relationships that support their career and business success.

Lori has more than 25 years of experience in marketing and communications. Before becoming an entrepreneur, she worked as an on-air radio personality in South Florida. When not networking or talking about networking, you can find Lori in the weight room at the gym or at a reformer Pilates class.
