An Independent Certified Coach, Teacher, Trainer and Speaker with The John Maxwell Team

About Lisa Hickey

As a John Maxwell Certified Coach, Teacher, Trainer and Speaker, I can offer you workshops, seminars, keynote speaking, and coaching, aiding your personal and professional growth through study and practical application of John’s proven leadership methods. Working together, I will move you and/or your team or organization in the desired direction to reach your goals.

My forty year career in leadership spans multiple organizations.  For thirty-five years I served as CEO of a graphic communications company with an international clientele and a legacy of innovation, awards and recognition.  I was named by the SBA as the 2013 Woman Business Owner of the Year for South Florida.  

I led both the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) and The International Alliance for Women (TIAW)  as national and world presidents respectively, working with women leaders around the world.  I am qualified as a Global Board-Ready Woman. I later led Long-Range Planning for a $30 million dollar expansion for First United Methodist Church, Florida's 4th largest.

I hold a BA and MBA from Florida Southern College, who recognized me as the Outstanding MBA in my class and later gave me an Alumni Achievement Award for my work advancing women entrepreneurs.  I am a graduate of Leadership Lakeland XIX, received the Girls Inc. "She Knows Where She is Going" award, a Paul Harris Fellowship from the Lakeland Rotary Club for international service and listed as a Worldwide Who's Who Professional with excellence in marketing and advertising.  I am a Life Loyal member of Delta Delta Delta  and a lifetime Girl Scout.  I am active in Rotary International as International Affairs Director for my club.  I am a mentor for both the FUMC Migrant Ministry and Million Women Mentors.  I support the Global Forum for Women and the National History Museum for Women.

My passions include mentoring women and girls, creating solutions to problems and helping others be their best selves.  I believe empowered women and girls change their communities and, in turn, the world.  I do not believe in giving up, finding anything impossible, or failing to fully use my gifts to improve myself and others.
