Izzy Lawrence is a British entrepreneur passionate about digital balance and the scientific benefits of unplugging. Izzy graduated with a B.A. Hons in Biolgical Sciences specialising in neuroscience and behaviour at Oxford University (Brasenose College). At university she became fascinated by how humans are affected by technology. This led to her founding A-GAME, a creative company specialising in real life engagement (rather than life online).
Her passion, knowledge and entrepreneurial spirit led to Izzy becoming a leading voice, often called upon as a speaker at global events including United Nations Conference of Parties (COP), Hacking Happiness, The Technology Strategy Board, The BBC, The World Bank and Google.
Izzy serves as a member for the Tech City Advisory Board (held at 10 Downing Street with the UK Prime Minister), The Cognitive Science Society, Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) and The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences. In addition to her advisory roles Izzy is a consultant for The World Bank where she engages millennials and entrepreneurs in climate change action, something she values as hugely important.
On the side, Izzy's passions are music and bringing interesting people/ideas together. She is a talented DJ (DJing at international events including 2012 Olympics, Ibiza Rocks and The Monaco Grand Prix) and is currently hosting supper club Burning Pan, an invite only private dinner in unique homes with speakers from TED talks, during the evening people are encouraged to unplug.
Izzy is originally from Somerset, United Kingdom and is daughter of Sir Henry Peter Lawrence (direct descendant of Lawrence of Lucknow and The Lawrence Schools, India legacy). The Lawrence family saying is 'Never Give In' as is depicted in the statues of Lawrence at St Paul's Cathedral and Waterloo Place, London. Currently, Izzy splits her time between London and Los Angeles.
