Lauren Cochrane

I’m an energetic and highly skilled digital professional interested in human behaviour. With 15+ years experience across government, corporate, startup and non-profit sectors, I’m available now for inner Brisbane or remote roles.

Hello! Is it me you're looking for?

As I have a breadth of transferrable knowledge and skills, I consider myself a digital generalist. I love variety, and thrive in roles requiring:

Project Management

I love it when a plan comes together. While I favour agile project management philosophies, I’m also experienced with waterfall and hybrid approaches.

Working with teams of technical and creative experts is always exciting. With my past experience in technical and creative domains, I’m able to communicate effectively with these specialists, translating client and business requirements into clear project deliverables.

Digital strategy

With a background that includes online copywriting, SEO, SEM, paid and organic social media, display advertising, graphic design, web design, web development, as well as CMS and CRM administration, I think holistically about digital challenges, and strive to create innovative, user-centred solutions.

As the digital space is ever-evolving, I embrace any opportunity to learn about new technologies and how to harness them. Having experience across many digital areas, I’m able to look at the big picture, and develop comprehensive strategies that meet business and user needs.

Team Management

People management is about collaborating with my team, and nurturing continuous improvement of individuals and the team as a whole.

Strongly empathetic, I care for my team members and strive to build a positive team culture where successes are celebrated, and mistakes are seen as opportunities for change and growth.

Stakeholder Engagement

I’m able to rapidly acquire an understanding of stakeholder challenges and business requirements, and can collaborate and communicate with stakeholders of all levels.

Understanding how stakeholders operate allows me to help them overcome the challenges they face, and to predict any potential issues before they appear.

What others say about me:

Lauren is a bright and friendly person that always brings great ideas, experiences and enthusiasm to the table. She's the technical equivalent of a triple threat, smart and personable, technical, and can make things look awesome.

Lauren has a fantastic way of explaining and managing technical stuff in a way that makes sense - with this skill she can make cost effective recommendations that make the best use of technology, budget and desired outcomes.

Her knowledge and passion and understanding of the importance of WCAG accessibility is excellent and this is an important skill set to have.

I pay my respects to both the Jagera and Turrbul peoples and their Elders past, present and emerging; and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
