“...the gain is over 7 figures and the ROI on the coaching is one of the highest ROI’s we’ve delivered...”
Lisa is a truly inspirational speaker that will leave your audience inspired and with the belief that they can achieve anything, I would 100% recommend her for your next event
In a few steps from our seat; a journey from fear & disbelief in our abilities to empowerment and positivity
Lisa's extraordinary ability to create motivation and purpose within a group is, quite literally, life changing.
I would recommend her unreservedly. Lisa is a cracking storyteller, an experienced leader and a compassionate role model. I thoroughly enjoyed her workshop - and overcame my worst fear of being out of control when I snapped the arrow on my neck (deliberately). I would recommend her unreservedly.”
“Lisa has injected an incredible energy into the business through brainstorming workshops and individual coaching sessions. The team is more focused than ever and is truly motivated to reach goals we have agreed between us and absolutely believe in.”
"When I arrived I was fearful of what the future had in store for me… When I left I was fearless and felt that nothing could stop me."
“Lisa is an inspiration! She took my sceptical management team and within hours had injected them with her own enthusiasm so they were absolutely brimming with confidence both in themselves and in the team. She makes such a big difference to team motivation and is now the permanent fixture in my annual training plan"
"I'm calmer, more in control and can access optimum performance when I need it" also "Incredibly warm, Lisa inspires trust, is a great listener and continues to have a very positive impact on my career."
"Your energy and attitude is very infectious and I hope you can work with us again in the future."
"Lisa is highly professional and knowledgeable in her field of expertise but provides it with great fun and a wonderful sense of humor! I would recommend Lisa for any team building event again and again and would love to work with her in the future.”
"Lisa was purely the number one inspirational speaker I have heard."
"…You are true example of what can be achieved by someone with the belief, focus and energy that you encouraged in us…"
Lisa is known by her audiences as “The Fire Igniter”. She ignites peoples inner flame, connecting what is really important to them in their life.
Somehow she gets your audiences on their feet, feeling a “power” driving through their bodies.
Puma, Morrisons, Lloyds, The British Armed Forces and many of the UK’s leading blue chip companies have hired Lisa as a keynote speaker for their events, and the audiences have experienced TRUE SELF EMPOWERMENT time and time again. Your audience will be triggered to think “What is possible?” for themselves, business and careers…it will be impossible for their minds not to access “possibility”.
Choosing a great speaker for your next event – Sarah Byrne, Director, Mosaic Events
I have been to and organised many events where we have had fantastic speakers but then some that are not so great!
We all know it is a hard thing for the majority of people to get up and present to an audience (it’s not something I love myself) but speakers need to be engaging and give delegates something to take away otherwise it will put a dampener on your event.
Where to start – always look at speaker credentials so where have they spoken previously and what type of audiences have they addressed and therefore will the content be relevant to our audience? What are you trying to achieve do you want something which is more inspiring to challenge and your audience or do you simply want to entertain with comedy? Seek a speaker that has good background of experience working with your relevant goal in mind.
Once you have made a decision and budget is an issue some speakers will drop their fees in return for promoting themselves or selling copies of their books so this is worth investigating. Ensure you have a contract in place (that covers you if they don’t turn up! Never pay their entire fee in advance). If you have time it is always worth going along to actually see them speak at another event use Youtube, TED talks and check out their general on-line presence. If you are part of an on-line group of events organisers ask them they may have used at other events previously.
Prior to your event ensure you give the speaker a detailed briefing, at so many events I have seen speakers stand up and prepare something which is not relevant to the audience purely because they haven’t been briefed correctly by the organiser. So remember to tell them about key people that may be in the audience, time that they have to keep to, any no go’s and must covers! Overall ensure you are not leading them into the lion’s den and they feel relaxed.
Finally always thank your speakers if they have done a great job after the event and tell others how great they are if there is room for improvement give them feedback this is so important so they are able to improve and develop for other events.
I will leave you with some suggestions of great speakers we have used at past events we would recommend for your next event!
