Speaking Topics

The Agile Culture - The modern workplace needs to be driven through positive, can-do energy, experimentation, initiative - versus compliance and punishment. Yet, most organizational hierarchies are premised on "bosses know best" and outdated mindsets that do not foster speed, freedom, teamwork and collaboration.  Agile provides a framework for thinking about culture differently.  In this keynote, Ms. Jackson explores the parallels to Agile software development and how cultural lessons can apply to any team and organization, to create more innovation and agility.

How to Be The Company Where Smart, Talented People STAY.  Through stories of interviews with Boomers, X'ers and Millennials, this presentation talks about the common ground AND differences among the 3-4) generations in today's workplaces - as well as shining light on digital era trends re-shaping work, and how to balance the needs of a variety of workers in differing life stages.

Culture as a Profit Center - Purpose. Passion. Productivity. These 3 pillars of high performance and ROI are proven, yet many leaders and workplaces still treat "Manage to profit" as the starting point for engaging human creativity and energy.  This keynote / workshops dives into values and management practices for re-imagineering engaged teamwork as the essential energy for sustained profitable growth.

My Change Game- an interactive, fun board game that can be played with teams or companies during or following big change (merger, new CEO, rapid growth). The Game deepens collegial relationships, collaboration, and connection. All with Game appeal. Learn more here. 


How I'm Different

“Lisa brought a terrific level of collaboration to her engagement with us.

  • Any keynote speaker brings dynamism, confidence, and a powerful personal message. What differentiates me is what my grandmother used to call "being a bold servant."  I believe my soul was put on this Earth to inspire people to reach higher, beyond old ways of thinking and acting.
  • I tailor all of my presentations - we will select the right message and format for you together.
  • I listen carefully to create a unique and powerful experience for your audience.  I want people to take meaningful action and champion positive changes as a result of my message.
  • I give more value than you expected. (Whatever that means to you.)
  • I've been doing organizational culture change work for 20 years. I bring stories and real-world perspectives from the corporate world, with the personality of a keynote speaker.
  • I come from humble roots and am self-made.  I live the values I teach.
  • I make the serious stuff digestible, in a way people can hear and enjoy - with a slight dose of controversy any good keynoter brings.
