The quiet humming of the conference was entirely attributable to the extraordinary work Lauren put in ahead of time and the tone she set during the conference. I and the firm are indebted to her and appreciate her efforts.
...
I've worked on a lot of events in New York and with a lot of different people, and Lauren is by far my favorite event planner. She is a direct and to-the-point communicator, who not only proposes strong ideas, but also executes my ideas with out a lot of back-and-forth. It also helps that she is well-connected in New York City, making organizing an event with her that much easier!
...
Lauren is extremely proficient and undeniably reliable in her event planning skills. I have attended hundreds of events since I moved to NYC in 1997 and can say each event Lauren has been part of has been superb.
