Lisa McInnes-SmithMelbourne, Australia
Lisa has a background in Sport Psychology and High Performance, Leadership and Team Dynamics. She knows a lot about building connections, communication, credibility and trust.
She speaks at conferences around the globe to corporations, associations, education and not-for-profits, and mentors and coaches in the areas of professional and personal growth, along with presentation skills.
Lisa has built her life and her livelihood out of sharing words; words of inspiration and transformation. She is in the top three percent of speakers in the world and is the most highly awarded Australian speaker. She is the first of only three Australians to be inducted into the International Speakers Hall of Fame (CPAE). She has shared the stage with two American Presidents and a Vice President plus a swag of celebrity entertainers. She particularly loved the night she followed the awesome Ray Charles.
Lisa has worked with well-known brands such as Ernst & Young (EY), Nestle, National Australia Bank, ANZ Bank, Westpac Bank, Bauer Media Group, Officeworks, GSI Australia, World Vision, and the Commonwealth Bank of Australia.
Lisa was catapulted into the speaking industry through the success of her first book, written at age 26 to help young adults overcome poor self-image and achieve goals. Her goal-setting program, ‘Why Wasn’t I Told?’ was given a gold award by the recording industry.
She has a crazy, ‘mad about life’ attitude and constantly comes up with new ways to serve her community. She loves her friends and colleagues. She has three children, two grandchildren, one husband and a dog! She is surrounded by love!
