“I can’t imagine what my life would be like without Lori Allen. I met her for the first time, in 2008, at a GEP Travel Writing Workshop in San Francisco. I was so impressed with the company she had created and its mission to both encourage creativity and also find ways to reward it. Since then, I’ve travelled on many GEP trips, with Lori being on ones to China, South Africa and South Korea. I’ve also attended events all over the US, including workshops in writing and photography. I’m simply not the person I was before I attended my first workshop, and I’m so grateful for her vision!”

“The truth is that I wouldn’t be here today doing what I do if it wasn’t for Lori Allen and her Ultimate Travel Writers Workshop. I am finding tremendous success with my travel writing career-265 published articles in a variety of top-notch magazines. It all comes down to that fateful day when I met this inspirational lady who encourages others to follow their dreams and to achieve them. Thank you, Lori!”

“I’ve seen Lori Allen in many different settings — leading a photographic expedition in the Serengeti, speaking to a packed convention center audience, working the room at a prestigious invitation-only gala, and as part of a small group over drinks. In each, Lori is a master. Her leadership skills, speaking talent and motivational ability are clearly evident and it’s no wonder she is at the helm of a vibrant, successful multinational organization.”
