RDA23 welcomes ABC Radio and Podcast Presenter, Lisa Leong

Lisa is the popular presenter of live radio broadcast show “Sundays with Lisa Leong” on ABC Radio Melbourne – and the expert interviewer host of This Working Life on ABC Radio National and ABC Podcast. 

She has co-authored with Mon Ross the award-winning book “This Working Life: how to navigate your career in uncertain times”, published by Hardie Grant in Australia and Urano World in the US. 

A former Intellectual Property, Technology and Wine lawyer (yes, there is such a thing!) , Lisa caught the radio bug in Hospital Radio in London in 2001. After graduating from the radio program at the Australian Film Television and Radio School, Lisa did a stint presenting the Late Night Australian Music shows on commercial radio stations Hot Tomato on the Gold Coast and SA.FM in Adelaide, before joining the ABC presenting the breakfast show for the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia. After the birth of her daughter, Lisa returned to her hometown Melbourne in Victoria Australia. 

Lisa is also an award-winning innovator and master facilitator – her unique approach has been the subject of  Harvard Law case study and inspired her TEDx Melbourne talk “Can robots make us more human?” .

Lisa is a non-executive director of Ormond College at the University of Melbourne, she loves eBike riding and is learning Water Colour painting and Bass Guitar (not at the same time).
