Speaker profile for Lauren Downie: Speaking at Naidex

Speaker Name: Lauren Downie

Company Name: Brain and Spine Foundation

After a career as a bilingual secretary working for financial organisations in the City, I joined the NHS in 2003 as a PA working for the surgical directorate and main board until 2007 when I undertook a role in the Education Department where I set up and managed the Learning Management Systems and managing the administration team across 3 sites overseeing the data management for 6000 staff. I completed a Foundation Degree in Health and Social Care Business Administration in 20013 and then undertook a top up in Applied Professional Studies in which I completed a project on Recovery from Subarachnoid Haemorrhage for which I received a first class honours degree from Greenwich University. I retired in 2016 and have since been working in the voluntary sector to raise awareness of the need to improve support services for survivors.
