Testimonials

"Lisa Hendey began working with me on her presentation notes as soon as I booked her for our event (almost a year in advance). Her presentation was far from “canned” because she used videos from current events to make her points. Her Powerpoint slides were easy to follow. Our retreat was our 30th annual so we have had a myriad of wonderful speakers before Lisa. Lisa stood out in terms of her availability, hospitality, willingness to be flexible to make her talks fit our schedule, and humility. I would not hesitate to call upon Lisa Hendey to be a presenter for a retreat, a parish talk, a business luncheon, a work retreat, talk show or television host. She has the personality you are looking for."

Lisa was our guest speaker at a recent St. Cecilia Mom’s Group meeting. It was a beautiful morning, as we all felt so blessed to have Lisa with us. Through her heartful presentation, she connected with all the participants with her relatable style and wit. I would absolutely recommend Lisa as a speaker or presenter!

Sometimes it's hard to say yes in the midst of the storms of life.  This retreat came at a time where I needed a bridge to help keep walking and Lisa's retreat was just that!  Lisa's vulnerability in sharing her life and testimony was beautiful and relatable.

Christin, "Grace of Yes" retreat participant,

When we booked Lisa as the keynote speaker for our annual Los Angeles brunch event to benefit our Norbertine Sisters, we knew she was going to deliver an excellent talk. We did not, however, anticipate the extent to which Lisa personally invests herself in the subject matter and the audience to which she has been entrusted. This is the secret to Lisa’s popularity and influence as a modern evangelist. She is all in.  As we had requested, Lisa addressed with clarity and impact the importance of the cloistered religious vocation and its context in a contemporary world, drawing on her own recent visit to the Norbertine monastery in advance of the event. From the moment she arrived at the door until she said her last goodbye, Lisa was fully present to the people that surrounded her, reaching out to guests she’d never met and staying late to be accessible to the many guests who wanted to meet her after they’d heard her powerful testimony.  Lisa is a dream keynote speaker whose enduring charm seems to spring from a genuine love for her faith and for the people she encounters in her vibrant ministry.
