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

    I'm a science-trained business nerd who completed my post-graduate studies with a Masters in Cross-Disciplinary Art & Design instead of going to business school.

    Creating sticky content by facilitating conversations that intrigue and inform is my specialty and my podcast show Grow Your Brand is quickly becoming a destination for smartpreneurs who want to learn new growth strategies every week without the cost of a consultant or an outdated course. 

    I have a portfolio career - which is a fancy way of me saying - I'm interested in loads of things and I work with lots of different people and organisations in different ways.

    If you run your own business and you're looking for help to get your business off the ground then the best thing to do is head over to my Youtube Channel to access free lessons, resources & more to learn how to Grow Your Brand.

    If you prefer to learn on the go, then head over to the Grow Your Brand podcast so you can download and listen to the episodes instead.

    If you're at the point where you're ready to start creating your own content, then let's chat about how you can create compelling content the smarter way - send me a message on LinkedIn or book in a call here.

    If you're an event manager, agency, studio, videographer or production company, then let's have a chat about how we can collaborate together. 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 :)
