From Hearing Loss to Speaking Success
I’m Lisa Evans the director of Speaking Savvy. I’ve helped hundreds of leaders take their presentation skills and public speaking abilities to the next level.
I am passionate about public speaking and helping others reach their full potential through the power of effective and engaging presentation skills, as well as using storytelling to make any presentation compelling and memorable.
I know what it’s like to be nervous about speaking in front of an audience as that is where I began my journey.
For many years I worked as a midwife. It was a dream job and I never thought I’d do anything else. Then life sent me on a detour when a virus destroyed much of my hearing. I could no longer work effectively as a midwife.
The next couple of years were a struggle, not only coming to terms with the significant hearing loss but also a change of career and a subsequent toxic workplace. My confidence and self-esteem plummeted.
A chance meeting gave me an opportunity to be part of a research trial. With the aid of a cochlear implant, I began the long journey of rehabilitation to use this amazing device. It takes a lot of dedication to learn new pathways and to hear in a very different way. It was during this time that my interest in Public Speaking was sparked.
Over the past nine years, I’ve won numerous awards for speaking and have become known for my inspiring and moving speeches.
As a World Class Speaking and Storytelling Coach I work with professionals globally. I am a speaker coach for TEDx and I have helped businesses deliver winning pitch presentations. I specialise in helping executives and entrepreneurs harness the power of business storytelling to inspire and entertain an audience.
