Re-humanising Business


Lisa Leong’s first job was as a liquor assistant at a supermarket. She was pretty bad at it - but when she was asked to announce the red spot specials over the loudspeaker - she lit up! “Slabs walking out the door for 19.99!!” People in the shop would grin at themselves.
This was Lisa’s first experience of “Job Crafting”, designing a job to fit the whole person - also known as hyper-personalisation at work.

Lisa now entertains, engages and connects audiences full-time across ABC Radio and TV, digital media, in print, and on the Stage.

Lisa loves a Big Stage and a Big Mic (this could be a height thing!). She is an accomplished MC and host, and her superpower is the ability to instantaneously create a safe container and a sense of belonging in the room.

She brings her trademark warmth, curiosity and energy to her hit ABC RN podcast “This Working Life” and her Sunday Show on ABC Radio Melbourne.

Lisa brings to this work her multifaceted past experience:
- An intellectual property & technology lawyer in Melbourne, New York and London
- A client-centred innovation specialist (her unique approach to this inspired a Case Study by Harvard Law School)
- Founder, CEO and Master Facilitator of a boutique consultancy firm
- Volunteering in hospital radio in London
- Presenting on radio stations on the Gold Coast, Adelaide, Port Lincoln, London - and now her hometown of Melbourne
- A non-executive director of Radio Lollipop children’s charity, the ABC Advisory Council - and currently, Ormond College a residential college in the University of Melbourne.

Lisa and her co-author Monique Ross have captured this dynamic approach to work and career in their award-winning book “This Working Life: How to navigate your career in times of Uncertainty” published by Hardie Grant. “This Working Life” will be released in the US in September 2023 by Urano World US Publishing.

Lisa loves learning: she has studied Science Law at the University of Melbourne, Radio at the Australian Film TV and Radio School, Customer-Focused Innovation at Stanford Business School and Stanford, Master Facilitation with Roger Schwarz in North Carolina, Presencing in Cape Cod - and most recently Qi Gong Healing in the Omega Institute in the Hudson Valley NY State. Described as the “short course Queen”, she has dabbled in Flemish and Fencing and is currently learning bass guitar, tennis and watercolour landscape painting…
