What people are saying
“We thought that the talk was fantastic and age appropriate even for our youngest children in school. The children were engaged and learnt lots about Lauren, her accident and her life afterwards.”
“Lauren put the girls at ease answering all their questions, they were in awe of her and listened intently. I have received many texts from parents, one saying “a valuable life lesson sensitively delivered” which I feel was so true. I can not recommend Lauren’s talk enough.”
“Lauren’s talk was fabulous and moving. I have never seen them sit and listen so intently. It really got us all thinking about being extra careful around roads and especially when crossing. Powerful stuff but pitched perfectly.”
"I was fortunate to be supported by Lauren presenting ‘Learn and Live’ to students 16+. The students listened avidly and were clearly positively engaged. I respect her openness to any questions and her determination to help prevent others going through what she has.”
“Lauren has delivered talks to the children in a school I have worked in. She is inspirational and engaging, and the children take so much away from the talks!”
