Client Testimonials

"As the guest speaker at our NSW Young Lawyers networking function, Lisa shared many insights with us and created an engaging atmosphere with her social scavenger hunt. Her tips on how to de-mystify professional networking are practical and useful to all. I highly recommend Lisa to anyone who wants to learn simple yet effective networking techniques."

Associate - Minter Ellison (24th August 2016)

“In a recent Asia Pacific Loan Market Association (APLMA) event in Sydney, Lisa came and shared her insights on “strategic networking” to a crowd of young bankers and lawyers. Her presentation was professional, interactive and tailored to her audience, which made it all the more impactful and relevant. Lisa did a fantastic job, and I would welcome her to come speak in front of a new group of people from APLMA in the future”

Gordon Soo - APLMA Australia Branch Young Leaders Chair

Thank you again for the Networking workshop this morning. I certainly found it very useful. Your approach was very engaging, informative and actually quite inspirational! So, thank you.

Senior Manager - Suncorp - January 2015

"In March 2014, Lisa spoke at a networking event for Finsia's Young Professional members in Brisbane. She provided great insights and tips on effective networking which participants were able to immediately put into practice at the event. Lisa is an engaging presenter who was very accommodating and a pleasure to work with. Feedback from participants was excellent."

"Lisa's Persuasive Presentation Skills course was one of three of enormous lasting value throughout my 20+ year career.   I still use material from the program, even though I did the course ten years or more ago!".

We engage Lisa Butler to partner with our business to develop the skills and capability of our staff to make them stand out in the market amongst their competitors.

What sets Lisa apart is her professionalism, credibility, expertise, flexibility and strong people skills.  She has worked with everyone in our company – close to 700 partners and staff – and has been able to establish great rapport at all levels – from graduates right through to earning the respect our partners. This is extremely valuable for us as it ensures high engagement and that our key messages and learning initiatives are communicated consistently throughout the entire organisation.

Importantly, Lisa is a training provider who really cares about our people and our business. Some trainers come in, teach and leave. You never see them again. Lisa brings with her the expertise she has accumulated through years of working with our business. No matter the training initiative she always provides feedback, observations and suggestions for improvement. Any recommendations she gives to our Executive Committee are acted upon immediately. In some respects she is the eyes and ears of the inside our business.

Senior Manager – Knowledge, Learning & Development

Lisa provided our consulting staff with high quality training on presentation skills. She gave them a flexible and time effective process for preparing powerful presentations, as well as some innovative alternatives to "death by powerpoint". Her greatest strength for us was inspiring our staff to get excited about making presentations rather than viewing them as daunting or scary.

As a seasoned networker I attended the program expecting to assess it for my staff rather than take anything away for myself.    Instead, I spent a valuable afternoon revisiting networking practices and learning new skills.  Lisa is a motivated and enthusiastic facilitator and keeps the momentum high.  I would highly recommend this program for absolutely anyone who needs to learn or re-learn their networking skills.

I'm delighted with the results I've experienced since attending Networking for Success.  The main benefit for me was learning how to set aside my negative perceptions around networking and also getting myself organised to achieve the maximum value from my time invested.  I'd definitely recommend the course to anyone wanting to set a solid foundation for future business success.

Lisa Butler created a relaxed and fun atmosphere, which made the event enjoyable, but more importantly, it was an environment in which I felt comfortable to practice the newly acquired skills. I was surprised at the variety of attendees from a range of industries and professional levels, each of whom could relate to the content and gain insight into how these networking techniques could be used to advance their own situations. As such, I would recommend this seminar to ANYONE!

I thoroughly enjoyed the training course yesterday. The topics appeared to be well researched and the material was very well presented. I picked up a number of tips and tricks that I am going to attempt to utilise at an engineering conference I am attending next week.
