Lisa Evans is the director of Speaking Savvy and the founder and Chief Storyteller of Stories from the Heart. Lisa is an award-winning international speaker, author, certified speaking and storytelling coach, TEDx speaker coach, speechwriter, and improvisation actor with Playback Theatre.
Lisa believes that each of us has a story within, one that deserves to be told and that the world is waiting to hear. She helps people globally to discover their stories and to craft and refine a story narrative, and ultimately to step into the public arena and share that message.
These days, Lisa lives and breathes stories.
As well as her business as a speaker and coach, in 2016, Lisa launched a purpose-driven project called Stories from the Heart. Since the inception of this live storytelling event, Lisa has inspired a large tribe of followers who are dedicated to learning and sharing the power of oral storytelling.
Lisa began her career as a nurse. She trained in London and, following on from her general training, she did an additional two years of study to become a registered midwife and then a neonatal intensive care specialist. Lisa answered an advertisement in 1988 to be a clinical nurse consultant in a large Sydney teaching hospital and has been living in Australia ever since.
An unexpected twist of fate meant that Lisa had to leave her calling as a midwife and find a new career and ultimately a purpose.
Lisa has been a professional speaker, trainer, and coach for over three years. During that time, she has been trained and mentored by some of the world’s best speakers and is committed to lifelong learning.
When she is not telling stories or coaching others, Lisa can be found hanging out with her retired greyhound, Tom, who is never far from her side, or relaxing and spending time with her husband and three daughters.
Lisa is the author of Speaking Savvy: The Art of Speaking and Storytelling, available via Amazon https://www.amazon.com.au/Speaking-Savvy-Art-Storytelling-ebook/dp/B077LWNMQB/
