The people we put in front of you

There's a wealth of talent at Perfect Pitch.  Our people have all spent years learning their craft.  We're very lucky to have them and you will benefit hugely from their experience and knowledge.  Most of our training is bespoke so if you need something just ask and we'll design training for you which really hits the spot.  
Lori Weber
Founder and MD

Hello!  I started Perfect Pitch in 2003 and it has grown to deliver well-respected work across the UK and Europe.  My niche within the business is presentation skills and the subtleties of business behaviour.  They're passions of mine and I've spent over 20 years specialising in this field, coaching and training at all levels of business and in many varied organisations. 


A dual background in performing arts and a variety of business roles helps me engage with people.  I understand what it is to stand in front of people, the need to form relationships quickly and easily and how to be aware of the messages both our bodies and voices are communicating.  I love all things word orientated, creative thinking and storytelling and I'm never far away from a new mnemonic, created to aid clients' learning

I design and deliver many of our programmes and have accreditation in NLP and colour psychology, tools which form the basis of much of my work.  

Drop me an email to let me know what you need from us!
