“Lauren took the time to talk to a group of Reception and Year 5 children about her adventures in Norway and her aim to explore Antarctica. The talk was engaging, interesting and most of all inspiring. She answered the children’s questions confidently and with great enthusiasm. She showed the children props, pictures and videos which really brought the talk to life. Overall, it was a fantastic experience that the children have continued to talk about.”

“Thank you so much for tonight! The Scouts and leaders really enjoyed your talk, it is rare that they are so quiet! We would definitely have you back to speak again.”

“Of all the wonderful talks I heard at the Love Her Wild weekend one really struck a chord in particular. Lauren from Team Fram spoke about her recent expedition and how she had failed. In her eyes anyway. ”
