Master storyteller Lauren Speeth has shared her stories in film and print over the years with audiences around the world, to critical acclaim. Her storytelling interests run the gamut, from books about the American experience to 3-D films about Irish spirituality, to music about love and life. In her novel Thread for Pearls, she shares what she has come to understand as the fundamental human experience of resiliency and hope. In her primer on social entrepreneurship, Intelligence and Compassion in Action, she shares a methodology used successfully at The Elfenworks Foundation that’s based on the wisdom of Jimmy Carter, America’s 39th President. In her second primer, on eMinistry, she provides faith leaders with an onramp to a virtual presence. And in Tracks of Hope, written before the Great Recession, she explores America’s runaway train of poverty and inequality through thought-provoking questions and photography.

Speeth, also an acclaimed documentarian, hails from family of filmmakers, musicians and writers, and her musical aesthetic informs her work. Two of Speeth's films, &quot;A Concert for Hope&quot; (2008) and &quot;Exploring Hope for Better Times&quot; (2018), bookend a library of purpose-driven films, and highlight the intent to uplift and inspire that have permeated her filmmaking efforts since 2004. She has tackled subjects ranging from eco-green to Celtic green, from yesterday's heroes to tomorrow's change-makers. Her films have been screened in festivals worldwide and have been aired on television including Starfish TV, The Classic Arts Channel, Marin TV, and Denver's Channel 57. Among her accolades: Best Host – Documentary; Best 3D Documentary; Best Inspirational Film; Best Woman Filmmaker; Best Documentary Feature; Best International Mid-Length Documentary; Best Music Video; HIFF Silver Lei; and Best Jazz Video.

An accomplished musician and full voting member of NARAS, Speeth has penned compositions, produced and played on albums, conducted ensembles, and performed at fundraisers. She plays electric bass and keys in a contemporary worship service and is a member emerita of the Peninsula Symphony's First Violin section.

As an educational media expert, Speeth draws on her years of experience in the Silicon Valley, from the startup to the Fortune 50 levels, and on training in philanthropy leadership and chaplaincy. She holds two doctorates as well as credentials in IT security and teaching, and has served as a member of the External Advisory Board to the Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality, Lifetime Member of The Carter Center's Board of Councilors, former Trustee of Mills College, and Regent Emeritus of Saint Mary's College of California.

Speeth has lectured widely, including the USA, Australia, China, India, Jordan, and Ukraine. Having judged thousands of film entries and participated in panels on film for change, Speeth especially enjoys encouraging the next generation of filmmakers through the Elfenworks award at Campus Moviefest.
