Lauren Wilks


Lauren is the Secretary of the LANZBC Young Professionals Network. She is currently working as a Business Consultant at Ernst & Young, based in Tāmaki Makaurau/Auckland.

She graduated as a Senior Scholar from the University of Auckland Business School, with a double major in Economics and International Business. In her final year of university, Lauren was supported by the Prime Minister’s Scholarship for Latin America to spend a semester studying at Tecnológico de Monterrey in Guadalajara, Mexico. Her tertiary education and experience in Mexico has motivated Lauren to continue learning about and deepen her ties with Latin America. Lauren expects that the skills and connections she will gain through the YPN will equip her to more effectively engage with the region in the future, and is excited to share her enthusiasm for Latin America with other like-minded young professionals.

Lauren also enjoys spending time outdoors, learning Te Reo Māori, and catching up with friends and whānau.
