So if you want to be more credible in the boardroom, charismatic on the podium, nailing your keynote, or crafting a winning pitch, I can help you to succeed. Find out more about working with Lisa Evans as your Executive Coach.

Why public speaking with me, Lisa Evans?


My journey as a public speaker led me to embrace the philosophy of getting comfortable being uncomfortable then saying yes to every opportunity to speak. So, I truly understand the nerves you might be experiencing about public speaking. 

I’ve helped over one thousand leaders transform their public speaking and business storytelling skills so that they can clearly and confidently articulate their ideas.

When you work with me, I’ll help you feel empowered to share your authentic voice, and to step up, speak out and shine.

‘Thanks very much for the session, I thought it was brilliant and I’ve already used my newfound skills!’

Jack – Operations Superintendent

Present with confidence and charisma


As your Public Speaking coach, I will guide you to a place where you feel confident with your talk – and charismatic in your delivery. My aim is to help you feel so natural as you step up to speak that you will embrace the opportunity.

Many people refer to me as The Story Midwife because I was a Registered Midwife for over 20 years. These days, my purpose is to help people bring their stories into the world.

Leaving my calling and finding my purpose

How did I go from being a career midwife to being a professional Keynote Speaker, Public Speaking and Business Storytelling coach? The two careers are worlds apart. 

I’m from London originally, and when I trained as a midwife I knew it was my dream career and my calling.

Until… 20 years into my career, life sent me on an unexpected detour. A virus destroyed most of my hearing. I could no longer work as a midwife.

I struggled to come to terms with my hearing loss. My confidence plummeted and I became afraid to speak up.

Getting comfortable with feeling uncomfortable

Life changed again when I was invited to take part in a research trial. I received a cochlear implant and learnt to hear again – albeit in a very different way.

Never one to shy away from a challenge, this was the beginning of my transformational journey to become a professional speaker – a career I love.

I am now a Certified World Class Speaking and Storytelling Coach, a TEDx Speaker CoachHost of Business Chat Podcast, four times author, NLP Practitioner, and Improvisation Actor. It’s a unique skill set that allows me to offer training that’s interactive, engaging and effective.

‘The power of creating a human-centred story to convey effectively a technical message was a big revelation to me. I will now take that insight into my presentations I make at my work.’

Michael Robertson, Science Director, CSIRO
