Lisa Burling was living what most would refer to as the dream. Hugely successful global PR career, constantly around A-list celebrities, living in London and regularly popping over to Spain for the weekend. Money was no issue; everything you could want, she had, and, she was really loving her life.
Then, the expectations of a woman’s age came knocking and she gave up her life and career to move back to Australia and start a family. And as life would have it, it didn’t go to plan. She found herself with a 3-year-old and a 48-hour-old premmie baby in intensive care, she was left as a single mum while still in hospital, and with no job she moved home with her parents.
Refusing to accept her new reality, in just four short years Lisa went from an unemployed single mum to an award-winning businesswoman and entrepreneur (as Founder and MD of one of Australia’s leading PR consultancies, LBPR), the creator of Australia’s first student PR consultancy, Catalyst, and a global ambassador for women’s entrepreneurial movements Inspiring Rare Birds and the AusMumpreneur Network. Oh, and she’s now a published author of three books! She is an absolute inspiration on how by dreaming little, you end up achieving the big stuff!
Come and hear Lisa as she talks about her entrepreneurial journey and her latest book, Dall It Takes Is A Little More Gumption – which gives you a front row seat into how she used the power of dreaming small and quickly shifted her reality from one of unexpected trauma and devastating heartbreak, to fulfilment and opportunity. If she can do it, you can too!
