MULTEX.COM | SNL FINANC IAL | ULTIMATE ESCAPES
Lauren is one the smartest, most creative writers and editors-in-chief that I have ever worked with. She is wired for business, and has remarkable instincts for innovative and new content that will be attractive to readers; and has experimented and embraced every new media delivery mode, including the internet years before it was mainstream. Add to that the fact that she is one of the easiest people to work with, and friendliest, and it is no wonder that her circle of influence expands incredibly every year. Go Lauren.

MULTEX.COM
Lauren Keyson was brought to New York City by the president of Multex to create internet-based publications, and to give the company a communications presence on the Web.  Her work was incredible – during her tenure at Multex she created several smart, savvy, innovative online and print publishing products that included The Internet Analyst, circ: 1.5 mil.; The Telecom Analyst, circ: 1.25 mil.; Industry Investing Reports, circ 300,00 as well as industry indexes. I worked with her on all these products and can say that she is an excellent writer, editor and communicator who consistently developed new ideas into well-received PR. She built strong relationships with technology and financial analysts, with research directors and industry execs, and with the media.  She is a pleasure to work with and I strongly recommend her.

SNL FINANCIAL
As a consultant, then via a PR agency, and finally as a full-time employee, Lauren provided SNL Financial with diligent media relations support for several years. Her efforts when SNL's program of public relations outreach was in its infancy laid the groundwork for the extensive recognition the firm now receives in the business press. Not only is Lauren a hard worker with a wide network of media contacts, she's also one of the nicest people you'll ever have the privilege of meeting in the workplace.

BUYSIDE MAGAZINE
Lauren Keyson personally and professionally shaped my career with every opportunity she provided me with at Buyside. When I decided to make editing my career, I thought that working with writers to polish their material was accomplished solely through copyediting. She demonstrated how much more there is to it if it is to be done well. She proved that publishing worthwhile material requires equal parts of great ideas, focused and broad networking, the right author, meaningful supporting material and design/illustration. I would not have had success, let alone continued success, and the opportunity to follow in her footsteps in working with some of the most compelling, complex and important people in the financial industry.
Tamara Bower  
Editor


BUYSIDE MAGAZINE
“I have known Lauren for approximately 14 years. My initial interaction with her was to provide editorial content in the realm of pharma, biotech and medical device stocks. This material was created for an audience of money managers, analysts, investment bankers and venture capitalists. I found Lauren to be extraordinary in her ability to deal with multiple people simultaneously while always giving personal attention in a patient manner when it was needed. She never complained, and when she needed content in a hurry she cajoled with humor without ever losing her poised demeanor or professionalism for even one moment. Lauren is an outstanding manager and person. Her well of talented service providers never runs dry because she has developed lengthy and sincere personal relationships that remain solid-- even when her colleagues have gone into new fields. I am honored and happy to recommend Lauren Keyson.
