Hi, I am Lauren, an entrepreneur who is powered by collaboration. I've been in the ''business'' of social media for more than 15 years, and in that time I've tested and proven that the secret to building a great business is to cultivate fandom rather than followers. My first dream job (in my 20s) resulted in transforming how professional golf connects with fans online, as the original social media lead for the PGA TOUR. My second dream job (in my 30s) allowed me to use consulting, speaking, and content to advise the world's most interesting brands on how to modernize their messages and create moments that engage crucial audiences using digital marketing, content, and customer experience. Now I'm embarking on Lauren 3.0 and building my third dream job, as the Founder and CEO of the re-commerce startup FANWAGN. I also host the Brand to Fan Show, an audio & video podcast that unpacks the phenomenon of fandom for business leaders, marketers, and entrepreneurs who want to build unforgettable brands. My incredible client list (mega-retail brands, tourism hotspots, notable sports figures, and technology giants) is topped only by the network I've built as a social media sports OG, a partner of Sports PR Summit, a professional speaker, and a passionate community member. The secret to all of it is that I'm powered by collaboration, and am most inspired when supporting others to build their businesses or careers. I'm so excited to do this now with FANWAGN by building a fabulous team of smart, passionate, dedicated people. You may have connected with me while I consulted for clients through Convince & Convert, Brain+Trust Partners, or TeagueFC. I also serve as President of my kids' co-op preschool and am President-Elect of National Speakers Association Oregon chapter. I completed my Mastery of Heroic Public Speaking in 2017 and am an active member of National Speakers Association, Women in Sports & Entertainment (WISE), and the Canby Area Chamber of Commerce. For fun, I'm usually outside or at a sporting event with at least one of my three #TinyTeagues in tow. When the sun is out, I'll probably be trying to squeeze in 9 holes. You can find and follow me on social media as @LaurenTTeague. If you're looking for a thought leader in brand marketing, give me a ring. My client list speaks for itself, and my unique approach to cultivating fandom has made me one of the most sought-after marketing advisors and speakers in the industry.
