Lauren Hopley is a seasoned facilitator, performer, director, and advocate of positive behaviour change. Her career to date encompasses roles across the education, performing arts and tourism sectors, with a primary focus on interacting with young people to help them to better understand their world and their choices.
Lauren holds a Bachelor of Arts in Acting and Directing, as well as an Executive Master of Arts. She has been privileged to use the knowledge and skills gained throughout her studies in a number of exciting ways. Lauren has travelled extensively across Australia performing educational theatre shows to primary and secondary students, with core messages spanning culture, non-verbal communication, resilience and responsibility, and values. She loves the lightbulb moments that audiences have when presented with information in a fun, inclusive and dynamic way, and she thrives on the power and connection of face to face interactions.
Immediately prior to working with the Alannah & Madeline Foundation, Lauren led a team of behaviour change facilitators in delivering financial literacy, digital literacy and disability awareness and inclusion workshops across Australia. These programs reach close to 600,000 students annually across the nation.
Lauren is skilled in building meaningful relationships, quick rapport, and lasting impact with those she works with. She approaches her workshops with humour, energy and a genuine desire to learn what makes her audience tick.
