I attended Lisa’s public speaking course in September 2022, and it was extremely fun and engaging. Lisa shared some very practical tips and advice on how to develop skills for speaking with persuasive confidence. I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone wanting to develop their public speaking skills.

My work in the public spotlight as been mainly around food, which I am comfortable with. Public Speaking makes me anxious  however Lisa Evans helped ease my worries and gave me some powerful tips on bringing my best self out on stage. I felt supported to share my story, and even though I was scared before, I no longer am! Thank you Lisa.

I attended Lisa’s Communicate with Influence Workshop. It was fun, dynamic and highly engaging. Not only is Lisa a wealth of knowledge, she has lots of excellent ideas on how to deliver an effective talk with the use of stories, and by capturing the hearts and minds of the audience. The big revelation for me is that we all have the potential to influence the world simply through the effectvie use of our voice and body language.

It’s rare that you come across a standout mentor and speaker coach like Lisa Evans. I had the pleasure of being coached by Lisa. Lisa challenged me to rethink my speech writing, structure, and delivery. I was particularly impressed with Lisa’s abundant knowledge and skills as a courageous storyteller and professional speaker. Lisa’s communication in a clear-cut manner suited me to a tee. I would highly recommend Lisa Evans to any upcoming or experienced speakers.

The workshops delivered by Lisa Evans were invaluable, not just for myself but for all participants. Our main focus with Lisa was our presentation skills and public speaking. I found Lisa to be a particularly warm and insightful coach, who encouraged me to step outside my comfort zone in order to perform to the best of my ability. The growth and confidence I saw in myself and my peers after two sessions with Lisa was remarkable.  Lisa makes it easy for people to relate to her through her stories. She inspired me to put my best foot forward and know that I can achieve so much more if I believe in myself.

Natasha Mohiuddin

Analyst, Colliers International

Lisa Evans helped me polish the script for my recent TEDx talk and it made a world of difference. She not only made suggestions on how to make it more relevant to a worldwide audience, (Once the video is posted the audience expands) but also made several suggestions to improve the flow. Most importantly she suggested I move something around to make my ending more uplifting and inspiring. To top it off she did this over a weekend and several time zones away. Lisa has a great personality and gives feedback not only in a clear way but also gives you the why behind the suggestion. The next time I have a major speech I’ll be reaching out to Lisa again.

Lisa Evans is an incredibly encouraging and experienced public speaking coach. From speech writing and speech structure to messaging, voice, stage mapping, storytelling and movement, Lisa Evans assisted in every aspect of my speech. She undoubtedly empowered me to give my best speech yet; to an international audience of 1,000 people. I also found her book ‘Speaking Savvy’ very useful; it proposed some techniques I’d never considered, despite having spoken publicly for a number of years. I would highly recommend Lisa Evans to aspiring and professional speakers, and I look forward to working together again in the future.

A huge thank you to Lisa Evans for coming to Autism West, to give a workshop on public speaking.

I had the privilege of attending one of Lisa Evans Storytelling workshops and I was blown away. Lisa creates a safe, warm environment where everyone felt comfortable to share their stories. Her storytelling tools and concepts are so simple and yet so powerful. Not only does she unleash the storyteller within you by giving you tools to see your own stories. She gives you a very simple structure to follow to help your audience relate to your story. In addition to Lisa’s beautiful energy, I found that the small group of participants worked really well and I was inspired by each and everyone’s story and energy. If you think you may have a story to tell, make sure you attend one of her events. Lisa will free your inner storyteller. My favourite exercise was the “I could tell you a story about ….”. Fun and engaging!

Lisa Evans storytelling workshop has helped me to discover stories I never thought of using before and be able to bring them to life in an engaging way.

Lisa Evans did a phenomenal job coaching TEDx UWA speakers. She worked around busy schedules to transform them into confident and eloquent TEDx speakers. My team and I were particularly impressed by her ability to help them develop a naturally engaging style, and turn some promising ideas into a story that had the entire audience on the edge of their seats. It has been a privilege having Lisa on the TEDx UWA team this year, and we look forward to seeing her work magic on many speakers to come!

Brooke Krajancich

Head of Speaker Resources, TEDx UWA

I first met Lisa Evans five years ago and have continuously been impressed by her absolute professionalism, clarity of focus and passion for storytelling. Lisa magically manages to get on and organise events with ease and confidence. She is remarkably through at organising sold-out storytelling events. Lisa somehow manages all the individual storytellers with complete comfort. Because of that, she has developed a strong storytelling tribe throughout WA and also online. Lisa has garnered a reputation as a speaker coach for TEDx events and leadership development. Lisa is passionate about enabling people to share their stories and to step up and develop their public speaking confidence. If you know anyone who wants to be a more compelling speaker I would have no hesitation in recommending Lisa Evans of Speaking Savvy as a public speaking coach, keynote speaker, or MC.

She gave me a clear process to follow in preparing my talk, and was knowledgeable in all subjects inlcuding mental preparation, marketing and logistics. Will surely work together again.

Coaching with Lisa Evans provided constructive challenging about how I framed my messages. 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. Apart from coaching about the messages, Lisa also provided helpful tips on public speaking delivery, storytelling and stage presence.

As one of the co-authors in the book Stories From The Heart, I found the experience joyful, easy and rewarding. When working with Lisa Evans, nothing was too much trouble. Lisa is always willing to give a helping hand and generously shares her expertise. Lisa radiates high quality in all her pursuits and her books are no exception. Being a featured author in a high-quality book has been a door-opener for me and I highly recommend anyone who wants to get published to be part of this opportunity.

Jay Crisp Crow

Lisa’s authentic style reflects exactly what she teaches. Her powerful mix of creativity and logic are inspiring, and her desire to help me in my business is genuine and reflects her generosity in sharing her expertise. I came away from the workshop realising the value of storytelling and how we all have stories that we are unaware of. My 1:1 public speaking coaching session with Lisa was exciting and enlightening because she is a visionary. I am feeling very fortunate to have the privilege of finding out about Lisa Evans and Speaking Savvy and hope to have the opportunity to work with her again.

Sally Hewitt

Founder, Aging Gratefully

Powerful messages can be brought out by storytelling and by having a strong personal brand.  Lisa Evans’ coaching style and sincere interest in helping me achieve my best at TEDxPerth 2017 was invaluable.  I thought that I knew how to talk and present, but with her coaching, I this took it to another level.  I am reasonably passionate about what I talk about, but Lisa helped me take it to another level and not be self-conscious about it.  Lisa helped to make sure that I was telling my story so that the audience was immediately engaged and wanted to hear more, right through to a strong ending.  Thanks so very much, Lisa, for all your help, which will stay with me the rest of my life and makes me regret that I didn’t have this type of coaching much earlier in my life.

Charlie Bass

Chairman and Founder, Centre for Entrepreneurial Research and innovation

Storytelling is a huge part of my life and I thank Lisa Evans of Speaking Savvy for allowing me to tell my story in front of such a loving, open and caring audience. Truly the people she attracts to events are very like-minded people, so you can trust that Lisa will support you to tell your best stories.

So yes, it takes daring and courage to tell stories in front of an audience. It helps to have a good WHY behind you. Why would you want to share in front of a crowd? I used my creativity, curiosity and my desire to grow to propel me forward. And honestly, if you don’t wanna share, that’s cool. Being in the audience can be just as inspiring and to be honest, a whole lot more comfortable. Whatever you do, if you like stories from the heart, get yourself along to Lisa Evans’ Stories From The Heart events.
