A little more about Lisa’s story:
Lisa Lockland-Bell’s journey as a vocal specialist started when she was a young girl. At the age of eight, her musical talents were recognised when she was given the lead role in the school musical.
This talent developed into her passion and purpose: The Human Voice. Encouraged by her family, Lisa went on to be accepted into the Queensland Conservatorium of Music. Lisa was on the road to becoming a great opera singer.
The twist to the story was Lisa’s father’s unfortunate mental condition, known as Bi-polar disorder. To an eight-year-old girl, this condition was extreme torment, but was also the greatest learning institution. This is where she developed an advanced ability to diagnose, heal and reveal the potential that lies within a human voice.
Why? Listening for every little nuance, inflection, cadence and tone that her father projected, Lisa was able to protect herself from hours of verbal abuse.
Eventually the abuse took a toll on her nervous system. At the age of 22, while finishing her graduate diploma, she was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s disease. This changed the trajectory of her life. Lisa went on to have children, got married and was enjoying a career as an opera singer, recording artist and international performer when she was diagnosed with a second form of cancer at the age of 34: Cancer of the Cervix.
Clearly, something she was doing was not working. Not sure of what exactly, Lisa decided to change everything. From what she ate, where she lived, who she surrounded herself with, how she spoke, what she thought…etc.
The one thing that did not change however was her ability to coach. Lisa had always been a good vocal coach, who focused predominantly on singers. What happened, as she focused on her own personal development and healing, was she started to attract a new clientele; executives.
By the age of 40, Lisa had studied the voice for more than twenty years. Her experience in building resilience, developing confidence, strategic planning to re-invent herself along with the unquestionable bravery to just keep on fighting, was empowering to her new clients.
As the LLB Vocal Studio expanded Lisa became more and more intrigued as to why she was attracting these people. With this question in mind, Lisa has spent the last five years studying what the market was missing and what sort of program she could create to help people feel confident and speak with impact in any situation.
Lisa now teaches physical and mental techniques to build vocal power, strengthen presence and form strong personal connections.
Lisa assists you to speak with gravitas, build trust and deliver messages that inspire your audience to take action.
