Lisa had a room full of executives at the edge of their seat, only some of which thought about attention management, with a captivating talk and discussion about attention management and focus- not only leaving them with information but with practices and research based toolset to ensure their attention work became a habit.

Your upbeat persona and wittiness to deliver m&m benefits created a casual yet informative workshop that resonated with all personalities in the room. The extent of your success within the company even melted some of the cynical hearts that walked through the conference doors the morning of and challenged their perception of mindfulness.
You customized the right formula to guaranteed success which I believe was the combination of your experience, speaking style and the personalized action plan that each attendee walked away with.
I thank you for motivating the IRI Canada team. I strongly believe that your teachings will give the team the right tools to balance work and play, especially during stressful and demanding times.
-Cheryl Ong Seng, Vice President, IRI Canada
While working on my “Distraction” Video I met with Lisa to get ideas on how short, daily attention practices can bring focus back to the task at hand. Lisa had some ideas on actual exercises that people can incorporate not only for safety, but for many other aspects of life. She was able to do this in a easy to understand manner light hearted way.
-Martin Lesperance, CEO, Think & Be Safe
Lisa's presentation on productivity taught our group that making key changes or choices about our basic behaviour will allow us to use our time and energy most effectively. She presented the content with research and statistics paired with stories, humour and enthusiasm. Her presentation left the audience with key, tangible take-aways to get more done or more importantly get the same amount done in less time so we can do more of what we love with whom we love.

The main limiting factor for doing exercise is lack of motivation. Lisa Belanger, during her brilliant lecture at the School of Medicine of the University of Granada, captivated the audience, and inspired the Faculty and the medical students in order to be themselves more physically active and to motivate their patients to do physical exercise

In less than three minutes Lisa offered an innovative perspective on health, captured the audience and had them at the edge of their seats.

At our conference designed to help teens affected by cancer develop healthy habits, Lisa captivated our young audience incredibly well! They appreciated her clear and concise facts mixed with anecdotal stories. She provided the information and language that helped guide our discussions that weekend, and helped the teens walk away with action steps to developing a healthy lifestyle, one tiny habit at a time. So fantastic!
-Kelly Kerr, Kids Cancer Care Foundation
