Lisa McAdams was a key note speaker at a water industry event we co-hosted in March 2018.
She was a pleasure to work with as she sought to understand where we were up to as a sector and how she could best add value for the journey we are on.
Lisa’s skill is in bringing together the head and the heart. At our event she expertly built the case for action, while helping her audience form a personal connection with the issue.
She inspired discussion and motivation for action. Thank you Lisa for such a valuable contribution to our work.
Women’s Legal Service Queensland engaged Lisa as our keynote speaker at the Parliament House Canberra launch of our financial empowerment app, Penda. Lisa’s natural storytelling ability helped to make the sometimes abstract concept of financial abuse and domestic violence real for our audience of government and business leaders. Lisa’s down to earth yet professional communications style enabled her to connect with the audience while discussing a sometimes confronting topic. We would highly recommend Lisa for corporate speaking engagements.
Lisa’s ability to talk about a very sensitive and distressing issue such as domestic violence is priceless. Every time I seek her counsel I walk away inspired, thinking we can do something about domestic violence. Her ability to break the issue down into bite sizes and explain that its the little things that count big empowers everyone to believe they can contribute.
‘Domestic Violence’ as a presentation title isn’t the easiest of subjects for people to hear. However, Lisa tackles the subject with a light-heart, grace and emotion as she guides you through the stories and indicators that we should all be aware of. My entire team were engaged and actively participated throughout with plenty of questions. If the people in our studio are better informed because of the work Lisa does, that makes me a happy woman. Thank you Lisa and keep up the great work.
Mary’s House, a Refuge for women and their children escaping domestic violence, located in North Sydney has been privileged to meet and get to know Lisa. Lisa has shared her story with our Committee members in her own unique way of combining the harrowing experience of surviving domestic violence and its long terms effects with humour and an accessible format to the process, thereby educating the group, engaging them and allowing them to enter into this difficult topic in a safe way. Lisa’s professionalism, warmth and frankness combine to make her a powerful and thought-provoking speaker who is able to take a personal story, and make it relevant to everyone in the audience. We’re delighted to partner with Lisa to raise awareness of domestic violence and I personally appreciate her honesty and generosity.
I want to say what a pleasure it was to have Lisa’s presentation yesterday. Lisa’s warmth & her connectedness to the group were great. It was good to see the group so actively engaged.
