"The team really enjoyed spending time with Lauren and got lots of great soundbites. Thanks again" - Amy, Pepsico

"The event was fantastic! Lauren was an amazing speaker, the feedback from our team members has been great. We had a few technical hiccups to begin with on our end and Lauren remained completely calm. Just some of the feedback we received: 'That was inspirational! What an amazing life story to listen to at 10 am on a Tuesday. Puts a whole lot in perspective & reminds you what is achievable', 'She's so inspirational!', 'Amazing story, just incredible!', 'Incredible!', 'Wow, simply speechless', 'Just wanted to send some feedback I thought the talk was phenomenal and so inspiring. I really appreciated Lauren's honesty with her struggles and it really does make you think that anything is possible when you put your mind to it and have people behind you to support. Just want to thank you for spending time talking through your journey!' and 'That was incredible, thank you!'. As this was such a success, I will be in touch soon about hiring some other speakers for internal talks" - Chemayne, Head of Wellbeing, Virgin Active 

"Pass on a message to Lauren from all of us at ING UK and thank her for her time this afternoon.

"We just wanted to drop you a note to say that Lauren was absolutely fantastic yesterday and we thoroughly enjoyed her talk. We’ve had really positive feedback from those who attended and there were some really good questions asked at the end which Lauren answered perfectly. Lauren absolutely met our brief and it was incredible to hear her story – we loved that she was so relatable and provided really valuable advice and tools for people to take away and use to help build their resilience, and these were completely transferrable from Lauren’s experience as an athlete, to anyone regardless of their career. She is an inspiration to all and I think her words have made a real impact on those who attended." - HR & CSR Administrator, DAS UK Group

Thanks so much for helping to make the evening a success.” Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust

“Lauren was great and received and standing ovation. Her speech was truly inspirational and her incredible story worked really well within our programme. She touched everyone in the room and we received so much praise on the event due to her. Thanks so much Lauren again, it was an honour to have you as our guest speaker” - Sarah, London Borough of Barking and Dagenham

"We booked Lauren to be the keynote speaker at a high profile Council event to celebrate our top achieving GCSE students. Lauren not only spoke passionately about her experiences of the ability to overcome the most profound challenges to achieve your dreams, but pitched her speech perfectly to appeal to and inspire both young people and parents. She serves as incredible role model for young people in particular, being both relatable and yet extraordinary in her achievements at the same time. I would have no hesitation at all in recommending Lauren as a speaker for any event." - Erik, London Borough of Barking and Dagenham
