Los Angeles Corporate Meeting and Event Planner Laurel Coote

As Certified Meeting Manager (CMM) with more than 25 years in the meeting and event planning industry, I’ve learned a thing or two about executing a great event that exceeds your company’s or client’s goals. More than just logistical execution, successful events are strategic and on budget. I’ve worked with companies large and small across the country to produce a variety of events including: teambuilding activities, product launches, educational seminars, poster sessions, conferences, Meetings That Give Back, luncheons, and tradeshows. My network of industry experts and partners ensure our clients experience unforgettable moments.

Pick My Brain has been one of the best companies I have ever dealt with!  They are always there to handle any request that I have, the events they help coordinate are always flawless and very well planned. I recommend them to all my counterparts at Verizon. I could not do it without them!” Scott Bennett ∫ Verizon

Content and Speaker Development

When you’re planning an event with a number of expert speakers, you’ll find yourself tracking down bios, headshots and CVs, as well as scheduling accommodations and formatting presentations for your audience. And that’s all before the conference even starts! At Pick My Brain, we manage the speaker process from identification through presentation and everything in between. We allow you to foster strong, lasting relationships with your event partners.

Conference management is all about efficient organization, innovation, and creation. Pick My Brain has all of these qualities. What really makes it one of the best and beyond the mainstream is its trustworthiness.” Haluk Soydan, Ph D ∫ USC School of Social Work


From time-to-time, we all need to step away from the office to a place where we can get a new perspective. Retreats are a perfect way to build camaraderie, share knowledge and celebrate accomplishments, while planning for what’s to come. Let’s work together to plan a retreat for your employees, your board or your executive team that includes strategy, education, teambuilding and of course, some good old-fashioned fun.

Meetings That Give Back

Planning and executing meetings and events is about business – the business of informing, training, educating and inspiring others. Beyond this lies a place where companies can extend themselves, their time and talents to communities in need. This is what Meetings that Give Back is all about. Charitable giving, sustainability and volunteerism are all ways to extend yourself beyond the typical border of your meetings.

For the last several years I’ve worked with some major organizations on incorporating community-oriented teambuilding activities into their events. If your company is looking for a fun, interactive way to give back to organizations that align with your corporate philosophies, contact me today.
