Laura Simms

2015 Speaker

LAURA SIMMS is an expert on meaningful work who challenges conventional wisdom by asking people to ditch their passions and start with purpose. After struggling through her own career transition, she developed Your Career Homecoming, her signature career change process, to help people find careers that feel like home. This unorthodox curriculum sidesteps the familiar refrains to either “follow your passion” or “be practical” by emphasizing service, legacy and each individual’s personal relationship to purpose. Simms’ refreshing take on careers has been featured at The University of California, Irvine, US News & World Report, The Huffington Post, Brazen Careers and is distilled in her book “The Purpose Paradigm.” @withlaurasimms
