Lisa is passionate about making AI accessible to everyone. She loves exploring generative AI tools and finding creative ways to apply them to her work and business.

As an early adopter of AI, Lisa has been teaching courses and workshops to help everyone get the skills they need to interact with Generative AI Tools.  AI is becoming a part of tech tools we interact with daily.

Lisa started with introducing AI to help people build their first websites and understand SEO as a tech facilitator for Rebel Business School. She then developed the first in-person "Introduction to AI" course in her local community through Community Education Whanganui.  Lisa also ran a marketing hacks: SEO and AI session with Thrive Whanganui and created an AI Summer School where participants learnt Generative AI by working their own projects.

With a knack for breaking down complex topics, Lisa makes AI understandable, interesting, and fun. Her interactive teaching style ensures no one gets left behind in exploring these useful and practical tools.

Lisa has used AI to write 3 books and as an entrepreneur, Lisa has directly experienced the benefits of generative AI for tasks like website design, brainstorming ideas, tech support, business strategy, marketing, and more. Her goal is to make sure no one is left behind and empower everyone to unleash their creativity using free and accessible AI tools.

If you're curious about generative AI's possibilities, Lisa's "Getting to Know Generative AI" sessions promise an engaging, easy-to-follow introduction. Come along to discover a world of new skills, new tools and new possibilities.
