Lisa Longball - Testimonials

“Out of all of the speakers that we have engaged over the past number of years, I have never had so many individuals comment to me afterwards how much they enjoyed the key note segment.
Firstly Lisa’s energy was infectious. She can’t help but captivate the audience via her stage presence and her scary powerful swing. Her stories and messages were compelling to every person in the room which included: Millennials, seasoned employees and the upper echelon (GMs, VPs, Senior Account Managers) of our professional vendor community.  I was also impressed by the level of research that Lisa had undertaken prior to arriving at our Conference. She had taken the time to learn about our group, my personal leadership philosophy and the values that we pride ourselves upon as we build our Western Canada team business culture. She truly went above and beyond. Just fantastic!”

Lisa was one of the Keynote Speakers at our National Conference this past November and she was absolutely one of the highlights of the event!  Lisa’s energy and passion on the stage was infectious! I was extremely impressed with the research Lisa did on the event and the lengths that she went to personalize her presentation to connect with our audience.  Lisa was our first speaker of the conference and our delegates raved about her message and engagement with the audience for the rest of the conference. The standing ovation Lisa received was very well-deserved.  I would, without hesitation, highly recommend Lisa as a Keynote Speaker for any organization who is looking for a Speaker who will be entertaining, impactful and memorable.

“Lisa Longball was our keynote speaker at our Retail Banking Leaders forum. She took the time to really understand our business, who we are as a Credit Union and the goals of our program. She spent a lot of time preparing to ensure that the session was not only inspirational but also enjoyable. Lisa has amazing energy, a great sense of humour and has a very relevant and inspirational message to share. Lisa’s program was much more than a ‘motivational’ speech on change. It was an inspirational, energizing, and thought-provoking session that provided us with unique insights to prepare our leaders for change, stay motivated and focus on our ‘long’ game. If you are looking for a speaker to ignite your team, I highly recommend Lisa!”

WOW!!! What a great Opening Key Note speaker. The audience was not disappointed as we all watched Lisa’s “High Energy” presentation that kept everyone engaged, laughing and wanting more. What makes Lisa “unique” from other Key Note speakers is her attention to detail. She did research on our organization and got to know a couple of our advisers and she incorporated this information in her presentation. She made it a point to interact with our advisers at every opportunity throughout the conference. Our advisers are still talking about how great she was.

Lisa’s passion and energy for what she does is incredible and it shows not only her presentation but it is who she is as a person. I have recommended Lisa to other organizations and if you are considering hiring her and you need a reference, please contact me.

Lisa is simply a ball of energy! Her enthusiasm, spirit and stories brought the crowd to their feet for the first standing ovation  in 18 years at this insurance conference.  Lisa does her homework. She is always well prepared, well researched and goes the extra mile, which allows her to connect and target her message in a meaningful and effective manner.  With Lisa, you not only get an AMAZING speaker, but you also get a person that will interact with the group and become another advocate for you and your message.  We can’t wait to work with her again!

“We were fortunate enough to secure Lisa ‘Longball’ as a keynote speaker as part of our annual company Kickoff. It was clear we had made the right decision from our first interaction with Lisa. She was beyond committed to integrating herself right into our Corporate Culture from the moment she said hello! Lisa’s presentation style exuberates energy, comedy, sincerity and passion. She did her research and took the time to truly understand her audience, resulting in a keynote like no other. Lisa’s effective connection with our staff quickly dubbed her as part of our corporate family, a fellow “Prontonian.” Her key note was such a success, that we reached out a second time requesting that she turn her key note into a virtual golf clinic as part of our 20th year celebration! To no surprise, her vivacious personality drew staff right in for the back nine! We are truly honored to have Lisa as a fellow Prontonian. If you are looking for a spirited, yet impactful guest speaker, I would jump on Lisa right away!

“Lisa Longball is an entertaining, energetic speaker who has found the secret recipe for integrating her athletic gifts and accomplishments into real life situations. She is funny, inspiring, down to earth and has exceptional delivery skills. She does her homework and tailors her messaging to her audience which really shows how much she cares about her presentations. She is a joy to work with and when she comes to a conference to present, she is not an in and out presenter. She wants to be an integral part of the conference experience and totally integrates herself into all of the activities. She will be the talk of the conference! I highly recommend Lisa as a keynote presenter if you are looking for motivational messages, have a golf component within your program because she gives a tremendous golf exhibition as well, or if you are seeking to share and showcase an individual who has set goals, is driven and has concrete achievements to showcase due to determination and hard work.

“I hired Lisa to keynote at our Customer Service Leadership Summit and was delighted! I already knew she was a high energy, engaging professional speaker. What I didn’t realize what how much effort she put into researching the attendees prior the event so she could make the message even more relevant. Throughout her closing keynote, she references people in the audience along with little known facts she had discovered about them. She made conference attendees feel like heroes. Now, THAT’s an exceptional speaker!

“Lisa Longball is one of the hardest working speakers I have ever seen.” This is a quote from one of our senior VPs after Lisa spoke at our InterAG 25th Anniversary Celebration. I have to wholeheartedly agree with this statement. I would have to agree that I have never seen a speaker so engaged in the day as Lisa was. When I decided to have Lisa speak at our event several months ago, I had many conversations with her over the phone – many of them instigated by Lisa herself – asking about our business and our guests with genuine interest. Lisa also attended our business meeting to get a better feel for what we do. Lisa then took some key points from our presentations and used them in hers. Not only was her presentation highly engaging and entertaining, but she took the time to answer questions, pose for photos and just spend time with all of our guests after the presentation. I would highly recommend Lisa Longball for any event – you won’t be disappointed. In fact you will want to book her for all of your events once you have worked with her once.”

Advocis Calgary was fortunate to have Lisa “Longball” Vlooswyk as our keynote speaker at the Annual Christmas Luncheon. “Drive Determines Distance” was an entertaining and highly informative lecture for everyone in attendance. Lisa is an engaging and enthusiastic speaker who takes the time to get to know her audience and personalizes her message for maximum impact. She showed a genuine interest in Advocis, our members and the financial planning industry. It is easy to see how her work principles can be applied in any business and be rewarded with positive results. She addresses not only her successes but also failures in a very entertaining and inspiring way. It’s a pleasure to listen to someone who is so passionate about what they do. After the formal presentation she stayed to talk to audience members, pose for pictures and spend time with our guests.
