Speaker Bio

Lisa B. Marshall helps leaders create and deliver stronger messages, manage conflict, and transform teams. In a nutshell, our training gets results.


Working together with organizations and individuals is what I love most (and is what pays the bills). I love creating significant transformations – personal, professional and financial – through developing and enhancing communication.


For example, I’ve helped organizations build stronger teams, manage conflict, create stronger, more effective messages, and deliver better presentations.


In addition, I’ve coached many senior leaders one-on-one to develop stronger executive communication skills. Clients include Johns Hopkins Medicine, Harvard University, NY Academy of Science, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, University of Pennsylvania, Genentech, and Roche among many others.


I hold masters with duel degrees in interpersonal/intercultural communication and organizational communication.


Speaker: I’ve been keynote speaker and workshop leader for well over a dozen years. I’ve spoken on a variety of topics in the areas of public speaking, networking, social media, conflict management, interviewing, and persuasion.


All programs include practical, evidence-based, approaches to solve complex communication issues and are highly specific for each audience.


Because of my speaker pre-program audience analysis process, I am incredibly good at understanding the client needs and culture.  Delegates will often say, “She really understands what we do. Does she have a background in X?”


The bottom line: I provide very practical, evidence-based techniques delivered in a fun, engaging way that resonates with the audience and ensures that delegates get results! Guaranteed.


Since the only thing I have to sell is my reputation, I will only deliver programs that I’m confident will be successful.  In fact, I guarantee it.  Really, I have a money-back guarantee, but nobody’s ever asked for a refund–that’s a testament to the quality of my work.

Keynote Topic #1

Influence: Maximize Your Impact

There’s no doubt about it, influence trumps formal power. Strong persuasion and influence skills are critical to success as a leader. You need the ability to sway the undecided and convert opponents. You need the ability to authentically bring others to your way of thinking without force or coercion. Strong influence and persuasion skills are how you advance and achieve your goals. (This is Lisa’s most popular topic.)

This program covers:

  • What are influence, persuasion, and manipulation
  • The research behind the six primary social and psychological principles of influence that are based on thousands of tactics of successful persuaders
  • Practical strategies for using these principles of influence in both persuasive conversations and persuasive presentations
  • The power of story for influence and inspiration (only included in longer programs)
Keynote Topic #2
