Lisa Burling - Managing Director, LBPR
Lisa is a journalist and PR professional with over 20 years’ experience working on some of the world’s biggest brands in Australia and the UK. In 2013, a chain of devastating events resulted in her being an unemployed, single mum of two boys under three. Whilst in the Centrelink queue wondering how this was her reality, she decided to set up a business. Most people thought she was crazy.
Three years later, Lisa is the Managing Director of award-winning PR, media and events consultancy LBPR. With a direct line to Richard Branson after smothering him in kisses, Lisa is living proof anything is possible if you simply believe in you.
With extensive PR, media and event management experience spanning the private sector, local government, consultancies and charitable organisations, Lisa has led award-winning strategic global and domestic PR campaigns to support leading consumer brands across a range of sectors – including tourism, local government, diet and lifestyle, human health, property, fashion, animal health and welfare, and the automotive industry.
In the 2016 Illawarra Women in Business Awards Lisa received awards for Best Small Business, Business Woman of the Year, and Innovative Business Woman of the Year.
