Testimonials for Anna Lee
Anna’s charisma, passion and deep understanding of how to engage people draws you into her presentations. Her style is conversational and engaging and with her in-depth knowledge of her subject, she hits a good balance and leaves you wanting to learn more. Anna’s readiness to work with you and adapt her topic and style to suit your audience is a credit to her competence and I would recommend her for any speaking engagement focussed on driving an organisational culture of engagement, inclusion and high performance.

Anna! I’m searching for ways of making an hologram/avatar of you and your presentation…so I can present it at any/every opportunity. This stuff needs to be taught to everyone, everywhere!
CEO Golf SA
Easily one of the best presenters I have ever encountered (and I’ve seen many!) and her knowledge and enthusiasm are contagious. She literally had all of us in the palm of her hand and hanging off her every word.
Anna's enthusiasm and clarity sets the bar high - her ability to communicate complex ideas in a style that's engaging for a broad audience means that our people remember her key message a year later!

Anna Lee's Biography
After a diverse career in the entertainment, higher education and publishing industries, Anna established Anna Lee Consulting when her firstborn was 6 weeks old. Since then she has worked with thousands of leaders across Australia to create positive change – in themselves, in their teams and in their organisations.
As a leadership development facilitator and coach, Anna has a laser-like focus on helping people change for the better. She takes a bowerbird approach to facilitation and coaching, drawing on a range of evidence-based approaches to find the best fit for individuals and their organisational context.
Anna is particularly interested in the challenges the information age presents for leadership, personal resilience and inclusion. Drawing from the fields of neuroscience, psychology and behaviour design, her programs are relevant, engaging and – most importantly – lead to lasting personal and organisational change.
Anna is the only South Australian alumnus of the Centre for Applied Rationality in Berkeley, and one of only three certified Tiny Habits coaches in Australia. Throughout her career Anna has served on various Boards and Management Committees, and is currently a member of the Premier’s Council for Women.
Speaking Topics Include
Want to change for the better? Start small
You’ve probably noticed that changing oneself for the better can be hard. Whether we want to be calmer, or healthier, or braver, or more motivated, all too often our attempts at change are characterised by short bursts of improvement, followed by a (most dispiriting!) return to the baseline.
The solution? Start small. This highly motivational keynote uses the latest research in behaviour design to equip your people with:
The ability to make small, meaningful changes that stick
Tools to get ‘unstuck’ when motivation is low
A (realistic!) belief that small changes can transform people, lives and workplaces
Reclaim your brain: How to stay focused in the digital age
For the first time in human history, human attention is the most valuable commodity in the world. It’s no coincidence that we find it hard to resist the lure of the ‘ping’ that alerts us to a new text, email or notification … our devices are carefully designed to distract us – and to keep us distracted.
In this compelling keynote, Anna tells the story of how our brilliant brain is derailed, disturbed and distracted by our digital dependence, and shares science-based strategies to fight back. Take-aways include:
Practical strategies for managing our digital diet
Overcome information overload
Eliminate the FOMO (fear of missing out) that drives much of our digital activity
How to create a focus-friendly workplace
Tiny habits® for wellbeing in the information age
In the information age, staying well – mentally, emotionally, physically and socially – requires owners of a human brain to manage proactively how, what where and on whom they spend their most precious resource: their attention.
Drawing on BJ Fogg’s renowned Tiny Habits® methodology, this keynote illuminates how small – even tiny – changes in our daily behaviours can help us pay attention to the things that matter most. Take-aways include:
Three Tiny Habits® ‘recipes’ that have been proven to improve health and happiness
Strategies for implementing Tiny Habits® for wellbeing in the workplace
Tips and tricks for allocating attention wisely throughout any given day

Build optimism and positivity
Take a proactive approach to change
Stay calm in stressful situations
Find opportunities for growth in challenge and change
