Her high energy and enthusiastic programs, sense of humor, and passion for sharing research, anecdotes, and stories are ideally suited for conferences, leadership retreats, and keynote presentations.

Here’s what a few of Lisa’s clients have to say about her programs: 

I sat in Lisa’s session and found myself doing something I don’t do very often on a topic of which I’ve seen more than 100 speakers – I sat up in my chair and listened.  Why? Because Lisa defined what should have been a familiar topic and made me look at it from a new perspective.

Jason Thompson, Board Member, Recognition Professionals International


Your program is inspiring, funny and one of the most entertaining I’ve seen.  Your use of humor mixed with real life stories and experiences kept us all glued to your every word.  I have received numerous comments from the attendees- they agree that it was the best ever!

Michelle Stephens, Board Members, Virginia Society of Human Resource Managers (SHRM)


Personally, I found your presentation to be upbeat, humorous and down to earth.  You keep your audience so engaged that I did not observe anyone in the audience checking their emails, phones, text’s, etc.!  And you come across as humble and grateful – the embodiment of what you preach!
