Best selling author, CEO and Editor-in-Chief of Collective Hub

  • Exclusive
  • Engage

Lisa Messenger is the vibrant, game-changing founder and CEO of Collective Hub, an international speaker, best-selling author, investor and an authority on disruption in multiple industries.

She launched Collective Hub as a print magazine in 2013, with no experience in a highly saturated industry that people said was either dead or dying. Collective Hub went on to become an international multimedia business and lifestyle platform, with the print magazine going into 37 countries, with multiple verticals across print, digital, events and education - all of which serve to ignite human potential.

Current Work:

In 2018 she decided to pivot and focus less on print and more on other facets of the business, decentralising her entire team in the process. She has strong messaging around the power of purpose (when you know your why the how takes care of itself), mindset (and how to harness an anything’s possible attitude), that there are more currencies than cash (how to use collaborations to grow a global brand), why bigger isn’t necessarily better (the importance of systems and processes and data to support high growth) and the future of work (a decentralised flexible borderless work environment).

Lisa has published over 400 custom-published books for companies and individuals as well as having authored and co-authored 26 herself (she often laughs and says she doubts anyone much read the first 18). The most recent have told her journey over the past six years in real time and have gone on to be international best sellers. They include Daring & Disruptive: Unleashing the Entrepreneur and its sequels Life & Love: Creating the Dream, Money & Mindfulness: Living in Abundance, Breakups & Breakthroughs: Turn an Ending Into a Beginning, Purpose, Risk & Resilience, Work from Wherever and Daily Mantras to Ignite your Purpose.

Lisa is a big believer that a good entrepreneur or business person can traverse multiple industries and in 2020 she will be launching at least three more substantial start-ups in totally unexpected industries. Her mission is to be an entrepreneur for entrepreneurs living out loud, showing that anything is possible so she is purposefully doing chart the journeys in real time and teach others how they can do the same. She is unafraid of failure but rather uses it to propel her forward.

Ultimately, Lisa’s passion is to challenge individuals and corporations to get out of their comfort zones, find their purpose, change the way they think, and to prove there’s more than one way to do anything. She encourages creativity, innovation, and an entrepreneurial spirit, and lives life to the absolute max. Most mornings she wakes up and pinches herself at how incredible her life is, but is also acutely aware and honest about life’s bumps and tumbles along the way.

With fans including Sir Richard Branson and New York Times best-selling author Bradley Trevor Greive, and a loyal fan base of close to a million followers across all her social media handles, Lisa’s vision is to build a community of like-minded people who want to change the world.

“Lisa Messenger is the best speaker we have ever had here in Townsville, ridiculously amazing! She was authentic and genuine, spent so much time getting to know each and every person who wanted a photo or book signed and was so easy to deal with. Everyone was super impressed with her and learnt a lot from her presentation.” James Cook University

I have been a fan of Lisa’s since the beginning of Collective Hub I am proud to say, so it was my goal to get Lisa to AFF one way or the other, mainly to expose the Adelaide business and creative audiences to who I see as one of Australia’s leading female powerhouse game changers. The greatest thing about spending time with Lisa is she is real, raw, honest and fun, but mostly she walks the talk. It was the best start to AFF16 we could have hoped for and have had such brilliant feedback, SO next year we hope to have Lisa here longer!

Adelaide Fashion Festival

Lisa recently opened our inaugural innovation hack and was nothing short of inspiring. Lisa spoke with genuine passion and from the heart, and gave a candid insight in the highs and lows of the life of an entrepreneur. Her energy was contagious and she had the room captivated. Lisa was without doubt a highlight of the event and perfectly set the tone for the day.

It was such a pleasure having Lisa speak at the breakfast launch of Love Mercy Foundation’s 20x2020 initiative at The Star in March. Lisa brought energy and enthusiasm to the morning and was a great ambassador for the women we seek to empower in northern Uganda. I’m looking forward to working with Lisa again in the future so that together we can empower 20,000 women to create their own livelihoods by the year 2020.

Love Mercy Australia

Lisa Messenger was the first speaker up at our event and was fantastic at motivating and engaging the audience. Her presentation was singled out by the attendees as getting them to question their why and purpose as they progress in their careers.

Women & Leadership Australia

The women of C3 Church and beyond were thrilled to host and hear from Lisa Messenger at this year's Everywoman Gathering. Lisa's words challenged, inspired, amused and educated our ladies on entrepreneurship - a world with which she is very familiar after bringing her now-nationally renowned magazine, The Collective Hub, from conceptualisation to actuality. With smarts and style in spades, her appearance at our annual gathering proves that she remains a force to be reckoned with!

Everywoman Conference

Lisa is a sassy and engaging speaker, who is gifted in storytelling. Her ability to create a narrative for csuite executives, clearly demonstrating how her unique story provides learning for all types and sizes of businesses, is to be commended. We can't wait to leverage Lisa again in future events.


Lisa's energy, professionalism and knowledge was a winning combination to making this one of the best events we've had. Her passion to do more, try more and never give up was an inspiration to many in the room. Everyone was captivated by her positive energy!


We have used Lisa Messenger as a speaker & host at a number of our events. Lisa has amazing energy & brings a wonderful level of enthusiasm & professionalism to all of her engagements.
