Managing Director, Monkeys and Mountains Media

Laurel loves travel and social media and combines both of her interests into her two businesses.

She provides online training courses in social media – Twitter is her speciality, in which she shows participants how to actually get results on social media, not just have a presence. In addition she provides custom social media solutions for the travel industry and has a knack for getting the word out about your destination or tour company. She is a sought-out speaker having spoken at the largest travel conferences in the world including ITB Berlin (twice), WTM London, WTM Dubai, Matka, Nordic Travel Conference, and TBEX Athens (upcoming), along with numerous other workshops.

She also enjoys traveling and is the Founding Editor of Monkeys and Mountains, one of Europe’s leading outdoor, nature and adventure travel blogs. Her specialties include social media time optimization, results driven social media strategies and Twitter for the travel industry. Her favorite platform is Twitter where she has over 45,000 followers.

On the lighter side, she loves both Monkeys and Mountains (hence the name of her travel blog) and can be found hiking or diving with sharks.
