Testimonials about this presenter

“Lisa was an amazing presenter. She is so warm and thoughtful and encouraging. She also had lots of useful tips and examples.”

- Janice Lim

“Lisa clearly loves what she does. She is knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The professionalism, the writing, and the learning about the structure of a chick lit novel – everything we learnt was relevant.”

- Michelle Andrews

“The course was very well organised. We moved clearly from one session to the next with a lot of time to discuss, to write and to hear first hand experience from Lisa. She is a fantastic teacher. She is very natural and is not afraid to share her experience and ideas at all. I was really inspired by her.”

- Bec Stuart

“Lisa was terrific! She’s so knowledgeable and very open about discussing her own experiences. After day one, I asked her about how to practice writing in active voice rather than passive, and the next day she brought in handouts she’d written up which were very helpful. She had a great attitude and the mood and feel of the room was light and warm the whole weekend.”

- Simone Wolski

“Lisa was a fantastic presenter who really made the course a successful one. She has a great manner and was very inspiring with plenty of practical advice.”
