“Barbara and I were blessed with a superb team at the White House, and Laurie Firestone was a critical member. She did such a fantastic job helping us entertain friends and close allies, and along the way showcase the best in America and advance our interests. I couldn’t be more delighted that Laurie is now sharing her experience and expertise through these wonderful presentations. Barbara and I just think the world of her.” – President George H. W. Bush


“With warmth and insight, Laurie Firestone takes you behind the scenes of entertaining world leaders from Presidents to Prime Ministers to Queen Elizabeth to show you how by treating your customers like treasured guests you can cultivate their loyalty – and keep them coming back for more.” – Clayton S.

    Dear Laurie,

    The Antiquarian Society was thrilled with your presentation. We were delighted with your lecture, and your pictures were fascinating. We were transported to your days at the White House, and enjoyed the details of planning the State Dinners. Our group absolutely loved it and wished for more!

    We’re so glad you could join us for Dinner the night before and hope you will return to visit with us again. Thank you again for such an outstanding presentation.

    Menelle Weiss, Vice President – The Antiquarian Society
