Hi, I'm Lis

Excuse me whilst I awkwardly move over to third-person and briefly talk about myself (I'll pop out for a juice whilst you read).

Lis has run an experience design studio for eight years, working with start-ups, scale-ups, not-for-profits and corporates on design and innovation. Projects included the Dalai Lama & Desmond Tutu’s Book of Joy, elearning courses making millions in sales, training intranets for thousands of staff across the world, and eCommerce for a cult celebrity and movie styling brand. She works deep in the weeds of strategy, service design, design and systems thinking, customer development, CX, UX & EX design, community building and executing with a purpose and a plan.

During this time Lis developed a digital course to streamline the processes & workflows of freelancers and creative agencies at meetCreative. She can fluently speak numerous tech (and human) languages with you and is happy to geek out on systems (please don't ask her to handle hardware though). She is active in encouraging womxn into the field.

Lis now splits most of her time on the environmental enterprise Nowhere & Everywhere with a lens on climate change, biodiversity, waste & climate justice, and teaching kids about environmental, equality and social justice through engaging design at Skwoodle.

Previously a Country Manager for a NFP, Lis has a background in law, international development and gender equity. She has travelled through 65+ countries, lived on multiple continents and believes action and empathy can change the world. Also deeply passionate about public education, policy communication, sustainable cities and human rights. She strives to keep things simple and thinks we could all spend a little more time on the open road. Lis can often be found working in rural Cambodia.

Ok I'm back! I'm also often asked about the podcasts I love and can be found photographing some of my journeys. I'd love to connect with you on Linkedin.

If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day - EB White
