Laura Vaughan

Laura Vaughan is the Ontario Regional Director with MacKay CEO Forums, also chairing 2 CEO groups and 1 Executive peer group in Toronto.

She is also the CEO of carrythe3 inc., enabling the world’s Managers and their CEOs to build and lead more abundant workplaces.

She brings to her work a CPA designation, a degree in Music Performance from the University of Western Ontario, and a Master’s in Management and Professional Accounting from the

She earned her leadership stripes during her 7 years as President of a $40M manufacturing business, through the 2008 economic crisis – an intense season of recrafting strategy and reigniting culture while also restructuring for profitability (and raising two children under four).

Her other leadership roles include COO of a full-service law firm and General Manager of a 200-person contract manufacturing business in the personal care industry, before leaving corporate in favour of a more entrepreneurial journey.

Today, she’s on a mission to help the world’s leaders show up more competent and more confident, so the world’s workers can do the same. Laura’s life experiences include scaling literal mountains (figurative ones too), dragging herself over the finish line of a half-ironman, and saving the life of one 88-year-old man.
