Speaker Spotlight: Lara Binamé

Brewed from a background in advertising, Lara’s keen eye for photography and love for words eventually lead her to blogging. After catering to client’s (and agency’s) needs for years, unsure if she’d found her place – and seriously fed up with the rat race – she decided she needed her own thing to keep her going. Little did she know it would lead her to where she was supposed to be.

Lara will be giving a talk titled “The Roller Coaster Of Starting A Blog From Scratch“.
