About Laurel

Upside-DownLaurel Lau is a digital nomad and executive coach, as well as founder of Six Atlas, where she activates organizations to disrupt stagnant business models and take advantage of innovation for immediate impact and competitive advantage. Born in Hong Kong but educated in the United States, Laurel has spent her life navigating changing environments and cultural expectations. Her mission today of helping organizations shift and adjust against rapid innovation & changing technology was largely shaped by her lifelong journey of constantly shifting to “fit in” and best contribute to her colleagues, her employer, or the country in which she found herself. Laurel found clarity at age 22, and carved her own path to discover as much as she could about the human mind and conscious leadership, leveraging both to successfully manage a team or organization facing a disruptive market. Today, Laurel facilitates curated workshops for organizations around the world, creating customized strategies designed around industry trends and each company’s unique internal capabilities. Working with leaders and teams within each organization, Laurel develops a balanced innovation portfolio for the firm, enabling them to stay true to their DNA while building a culture where innovation thrives and success is a given.

Private Internet Access

I’ve been a customer of Private Internet Access for 3 years now and I love this service.  I was at a security conference a few years ago and I connected to the hotel wifi.  Immediately my endpoint protection software began to alert me of hacking attempts.  I launched my VPN from Private Internet Access and all of the attempts were stopped. My data and internet connection was secure.  Another great use of the VPN service is connect from different geo locations, which is very helpful when testing DNS and CDN caching.
