“Hi, I’m Lisa, former Silicon Valley executive on a mission to show leaders in tech how to live an amazing life, kick ass at work, and be present for the moments that matter.”


Lisa Duerre here – I’ve spent 25 years in Silicon Valley leading highly successful teams and exceeding business objectives in the areas of Talent Development, Field Engineering, Customer Education and Support. Sales Development, and Marketing.

This gave me a front-row seat to see some of the most professionally successful tech leaders absolutely flame-out in their careers, relationships, health, and life. I was the one who helped 25,000 employees get results faster at work, make a bigger impact, and be better business leaders. And my favorite part of it all is the end result of each of these leaders creating a more meaningful connection between work and life in the process. In 2016  I Ctrl+Alt+Deleted my corporate exec role to escape the Valley and work with leaders in tech all over the world.

I give audiences like yours the inside track on how to navigate the always-on, only-as-good-as-the-next-one culture. No regrets, no agony over lost opportunities – just a breath of fresh air showing you how you can live an amazing life, kick ass at work, and be present for the moments that matter.

As a meeting planner, you have plenty of different speakers you could choose from for your event. If you want a standing ovation, if you want to hear your boss’ applause, if you’re ready to knock it out of the park, hire me to be your next speaker.
