LAUREN HOLDEN KILBANE

It's about this.

Humanity makes impact.

 

 Insight.  Strategy.  Content.

Moving people and ideas forward is my get up and go.  

 

I'm often invited to explore what's next:

identifying trends + insight to create and shape concepts,

strategy and content for brand, design and social innovation. 

Curiosity, informed caring and connection

are true in everything I do.

LAUREN HOLDEN KILBANE

 

Insight Advisor + Strategic Thoughtpartner

Interviewer

Consumer Culture and Design Researcher

Concept and Content Creator 

Speaker, Mentor, Board Advisor

I'm a Nike alum and on-going partner 25 years into a global career that includes posts in New York, Paris and Portland + immersive assignments throughout Europe, Africa, Asia, North and South America.

What I do and how I got here doesn't fit neatly into any one box. 

That's the fun part!  It's also the value I bring to the right partners and projects.

I love to meet people where they are and learn from what they share 

to inform and inspire others with impact.
