SPEAKER

“Thank you so much for speaking.  I think you could see from the response in the room that it's made a real impact to our members“ – R.B

Lis was a finalist in the Professional Speaking Association ‘Speaker Factor’ competition in 2017, in which she spoke about having overcome a major traumatic event she experienced as a teenager.

Brought up in an emotionally abusive home environment, when just 13 years old Lis was involved in a tragic accident at school in which she accidentally killed a friend in a school sports day event.

She couldn’t understand why this had happened. Not having help to process it all she struggled to overcome tremendous feelings of guilt and shame resulting in being on a path of self destruction for many years.

In her twenties her life was spiralling out of control; taking drugs, sabotaging work success and with ever increasingly destructive relationships she was heading for a crash…

And that’s exactly what happened; one night whilst out with friends she crashed into a black taxi that was coming the wrong way out of a one way street. It was the wake-up call she needed.

Then out of the blue on a sales training course she had a lightbulb moment that changed the course of her life forever.

An extended trip overseas saw her changing the way she viewed herself, The Accident and life itself. She saw meaning and purpose in what had happened and became determined to share with other people the incredible insights that helped her to turn her own life around.

She speaks around self-empowerment, overcoming adversity, resilience, courage, personal integrity and mental health and wellbeing.
