The Power Of Words – Laurie Gilbertson

How do you make it in media?

Preparation is key when it comes to delivering memorable media interviews. However, Laurie Gilbert, notes that the ability to work collaboratively rather than competing, as well as asking for help whenever necessary, can be really helpful in propelling people to succeed.

Laurie Gilbertson is a dynamic, passionate and poised communicator, whether in the courtroom, the classroom or on television. After a successful legal career encompassing criminal prosecution, government service, media appearances and non-profit work, Laurie formed Tribeca Blue Consulting to bring her unique brand of enthusiasm, dedication and skill to teaching people how to use powerful and creative presentations, public speaking and on-camera appearances to connect with their clients and their audiences.

Laurie studied Government and English at Cornell University, where she wrote features for the Cornell Daily Sun and honed her public speaking by delivering hourly news updates on the campus radio station. She is licensed to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court and the bars of the States of New York, Colorado and Maryland.

In this snippet from her full-length interview, Laurie talks about how she transitioned from being the district attorney to being an on-camera legal analyst. She also talks about the importance of embracing a collaborative attitude.
