Lauren’s journey is a story of overcoming incredible adversity and walking away from millions of dollars in funding. Having faced family threats, deaths, and tragedies, Lauren moved to Australia from South Africa.  She founded iVvy – one of Australia’s leading software solution providers in hospitality and events.

iVvy stands out as the world’s first real-time booking engine for the hospitality industry, providing event organizers access to live availability of function space and group accommodation for corporate events, weddings, and functions.

Join us on International Women’s Day 2024 for an empowering celebration of resilience, innovation, and success, featuring the incredible Lauren Hall — the visionary entrepreneur who has shattered glass ceilings and built 5 Multi-Million Dollar businesses across Manufacture, FMCG, Pharmaceuticals and Technology globally.

As we gather to celebrate International Women’s Day under the theme “Count Her In: Invest in Women. Accelerate Progress.,” we are honoured to showcase Lauren’s inspiring journey.

Turning 15 years old in 2024, iVvy’s successful journey in a highly competitive global field is testament to Lauren’s resilience, tenacity, leadership, business acumen and her incredible ability to pivot when faced with domestic and global catastrophes to keep the business not only existing, but growing.

Come and hear more of Lauren’s story, as she talks about how she overcame fear and injustice; how she found the strength to keep going no matter the obstacles; and how she’s achieved phenomenal business success.

Often we get to hear stories of success, but rarely do we hear the foundations of that success. This is a story that is uplifting, sometimes heartbreaking, but incredibly powerful.
