Associate Producer of the Annual Professional Business Women of California Conferences

I am attaching a letter of request to invite you to speak at the Professional Business Women of California Conference in Sacramento. You were one of the most memorable and motivating speakers at PBWC’s San Francisco Conference this year (attendance was over 6000!) and we would like you to please consider speaking in Sacramento. You really were awesome!

Vice President of The Vision Care Institute, Johnson & Johnson

I’ve been responsible for hiring MANY speakers and trainers over the years, and it’s rare that we hire them repeatedly. But Lisa is an exception! We fly her in a lot as a keynote to kick off various events we do, as well as for conducting training seminars and workshops. Plus, I’ve passed her name to divisions all over J & J and they all rave about her, too! She is personable, hilarious, and witty, plus her content is always SO informative and useful.

Vice President of Workforce Diversity & Inclusion, Blue Cross/Blue Shield

Everyone loved you! There is so much excitement and ideas surfacing since you presented your seminars for us. In addition, you have such an engaging personality and terrific speaking style that it feels like I’ve known you forever!

Winn Claybaugh: Co-founder, Owner, and Dean of Paul Mitchell Schools International Motivational Speaker & Author of: “Be Nice (Or Else!)"

Lisa has been a featured Keynote Speaker at our Annual Summits for three years and she always delivers! When she presented about Personal Branding at our Leadership Summit for Executives & Managers the audience of 400+ people when nuts. They’re still talking about her presentation and how valuable it was. Lisa is truly one of our favorite speakers and we consider her to be a member of our big Paul Mitchell family!
