G'day! I'm Lauren Kress, The Business Scientist®

    I'm a strategist who coaches.

    I'm passionate about democratising tools & information to help entrepreneurs and small business owners adopt best practices for their business and brand growth.

    As a Science-trained business nerd with a Masters in Cross-Disciplinary Art & Design I value how creative problem-solving can help us overcome what from the outset may seem "impossible".

    Like growing a brand with little-to-no budget or launching a startup without funding.

    I'm also currently undertaking further studies with the Australian Institute of Professional Counselling to become a qualified counsellor. I decided to do this because so much of the work we do in branding is about overcoming the imposter syndrome, dealing with feelings of self-doubt and making informed decisions that are best for our business AND our life.

    If you run your own business and you're looking for help to learn the key things you need to know about how to build your brand as a small business owner (without the price tag of an online course) check out my podcast show Grow Your Brand.

    It's available on Apple Podcasts here

    On Google podcasts here

    And on Spotify here

    I recommend that new listeners start off by listening to this episode first: If we're great at sales, why does brand building matter?

    If you can't find a specific topic you need to learn more about - you can also ask me a question during my weekly live streams at 11am AEDT which are broadcasted on LinkedIn, Facebook & Youtube or by sending me a message on LinkedIn here.

    Do you offer one-on-one business coaching online?

    Yes, currently I offer one-on-one coaching and will also be building out a platform in 2021 to serve more clients via group coaching and brand laboratory sessions. If that sounds like something you'd like to be a part of so you can accelerate your brand growth, then let's have a chat - simply book in a call or reach out to me on LinkedIn.

    If you're an event manager, agency, studio, videographer or production company, then there could be some cool ways for us to collaborate.

    I'm a super easy going presenter and interviewer and with a background in marketing, production & project management, my goal is to make your life easier...not harder!

    If you're looking for a guest on your podcast or a speaker at your event I’m available to speak at virtual & live events and happy to join you on your podcast show or LinkedIn Live recording, just send me a message and let’s chat :)
