Opening Keynote

Arguably the most important presentation of your conference.

The Opening Keynote is where Lisa McInnes-Smith excels. Her dynamic energy immediately draws each person into the moment and creates an expectation for what is to follow. Lisa is unique … each person will become part of the conference atmosphere and will be full of anticipation.

Today’s business climate makes the corporate conference a strategic opportunity to gather, connect, educate and enthuse the team. The investment involved demands significant impact. That is why it is vitally important that the Opening Keynote address really sets the scene and creates an excitement throughout the audience for what is to follow.

What Lisa Brings
  • High level excitement about the conference
  • Setting the scene for what is to follow.
  • Focus, and why it is important.
  • Involvement, ownership and a sense of team.
  • Open minds for creative thinking.
  • A sense of fun and learning.

Other Keynotes

For the more challenging program slots, Lisa will take one of her keynote topics and add more fun and involvement to stimulate your audience and renew their engagement level.

For your closing keynote, Lisa will take your briefing on key learning points from your conference immediately prior to her presentation. She will then build a summary presentation, highlighting key points and/or unexpected happenings, which will conclude with a commitment to continue the learning and build on those key points.

Senior School Possibilities

After completing studies in Physical Education and majoring in Sports Psychology, Lisa McInnes-Smith started her working life as a Secondary Teacher. She had been raised in a family of sporting professionals and was inspired to determine what it was that separated achievers from the rest. At 26 years of age she set a goal to positively impact the lives of 1 million Australian teenagers. She wrote a goal setting program and began to speak in schools and to youth groups around the country. Some 8½ years later, Lisa achieved her goal.

In the process, parents of those teenagers began inviting Lisa to bring her inspirational message into their businesses and workplaces. The rest is history. Now with over 25 years of professional speaking experience, Lisa is recognised among the top inspirational speakers in this country, and beyond. Lisa’s focus is on Peak Performance - becoming the best you can be in all areas of life. Her high energy, audience-involving presentations have hallmarked Lisa as one of the most successful keynote speakers to the corporate world, and to students. Lisa’s gift of communication has been recognised through her induction into the international Speaker Hall of Fame, the first person living outside of North America to achieve this recognition.

Throughout her professional speaking career Lisa has remained passionate in her quest to inspire young people and those responsible for their education and development. She continues to speak to students on a regular basis, is a popular choice to inspire teachers and staff, and also encourages parents to provide foundational love, support and guidance, even when the going gets tough.

Parenting Teenagers

Equipping parents to stay connected!

The transition into parenting teenagers’ demands that we must grow and change with our child – we need to shift in our thinking.

Sticky Families

Build a family that sticks together!

If you add up how many caring, thoughtful words and actions that you carry out on a daily basis this will probably reveal your capacity to connect and care in your relationships. This is true for relationships at home, at school, and at work Success in school and in the workplace multiplies when home and family life flourishes. Key factors in stepping up in all areas of life include knowing what to do, when to go flat out doing it, and when to rest and recover.

  • Refresh and refuel quickly and efficiently.
  • Build your capacity to stick at it.
