Nice to meet you all. My name is Lorraine and I’m passionate about helping professionals accelerate their careers and stand out in the virtual office. I’m really excited to join the Elpha community and answer all your questions this Friday!
A bit about me: I come from a journalism background and have been fortunate enough to build a career at the intersection of editorial and tech. I was Prezi’s first editorial hire, and I currently lead the editorial function as Editorial Director. Many of you may remember Prezi from your college days.
Since then, we’ve gotten bigger and better and I’ve had the chance to work with keynote speakers, influencers, and subject-matter experts on creating engaging presentations for both in-person and virtual audiences (the latter uses our Prezi Video product) that my team curates and features across our various channels (if you make presentations often and want to learn more, don’t hesitate to reach out to me on LinkedIn!).
Throughout my career, I’ve worked on and led editorial teams at other tech companies including SlideShare and LinkedIn. Since joining Prezi, I’ve also had the chance to become a top-rated virtual speaker, LinkedIn Learning Instructor (“Virtual and Hybrid Meeting Essentials” with another course on the way!), gotten quoted in and my articles published in publications like Entrepreneur, and so much more than I would have ever dreamed possible! I’m also a proud lead for the Women@Prezi ERG. I’d love to share the lessons I’ve learned along the way with you all.
Outside of work, I can be found doing muay thai, taking singing lessons, practicing French, and eating my way through San Francisco.
PS: For those with a journalism background, I’m part of this awesome organization called Digital Women Leaders where you can continue to get advice from others like me after the AMA.
