this is Lauren's jam...

Lauren's first job consisted of slinging family style spaghetti & copious amounts of Chianti as a waitress... so serving a crowd is at her core.

Pair that with a dual degree in public relations & Spanish, and a certificate in personal & organizational leadership and you have a mash-up of majors dedicated to communicating & leading others.

Lauren bring 9 years of marketing & communications career & 5 years of photography small biz hustle to the table.

But most of all she brings education & a relatable enthusiasm ready to meet your audience where they are. Lauren's dedicated to motivating them to connect with their "people" & create impactful, consistent content.

"Lauren will be speaking at the upcoming Creative at Heart Conference, and has also been a guest speaker on my webinar series. She is incredibly personable, knowledgable and knows just how to captivate her audience when speaking! I have been very impressed with her work ethic, overall organization & email correspondence with me leading up to her speaking engagements; she has also been fully engaged in each speaking engagement - excited to share with her audience & promote the event genuinely. She'd be an asset to any speaking endeavor and I can't recommend her enough!!"

FOUNDERS OF NAPCP

"Lauren delivered a remarkable presentation that exceeded all of our expectations at the NAPCP Retreat. Lauren can speak on an array of different topics that stem from her years of experience as a wedding photographer - from branding to business to social media to shooting. But we challenged Lauren to teach and demonstrate a live food photography workshop for a group of child and family photographers. Despite the number of challenges she faced during the actual workshop, in Lauren fashion and style, she went above and beyond to make sure every participant was engaged, learning, and left with an amazing experience. 

We have worked with Lauren on a number of different projects, and the quality we love most about her is her genuine desire to support and encourage everyone around her. Lauren has a heart for small business owners, and she has a profound way of engaging with any audience as a friend, cheerleader, and their most enthusiastic supporter."

Co-FOUNDER OF See.SPARK.GO

"In 2017 we asked Lauren Carnes to come share with our team about her expertise and to assist our team in thinking outside the box as we continue to tell great stories about great brands. Little did we know that Lauren would not only share amazing ideas and ways to assist our brands, but she inspired our entire team to dream and spark ideas larger than life. As the co-founder of See.Spark.Go I have the opportunity to meet a lot of speakers and hear great talks. If you are looking for inspiration, excitement and how to be more creative, Lauren is the person to meet, and I highly recommend her."

"It's not uncommon to meet Lauren and immediately recognize her as an expert in her field. In addition to being incredibly knowledgable about branding and marketing as well as being a foodie, she's down to earth. I knew I had to have her on The Bearded Tog to provide both her expertise and ability to see all the steps in a process for my listeners."
