Testimonials for Dr Liz Wilson
WOW!! Totally blown away by this morning's event and have walked away feeling emotional but with a stronger wanting to help the inclusion journey we're all on. I felt that the comment of today is that WE need to adapt ourselves not the person with the disability - they've dealt with enough without having to worry about how WE feel and how to make US comfortable!! I'm with Liz and calling BS on that - the time to change has arrived.....
Thank you for your brilliant though provoking speech at IWD at Accenture Australia
Lynne Storey Naphtali, Managing Director – Accenture
I walked away equipped with a level of social awareness that I would’ve otherwise not had access to... A big thank you to Scott and Liz for sharing their personal stories with us.
Awed by Cushman & Wakefield’s International Women’s Day speaker today – Dr Liz, Thank you for sharing the enriching way Scott has taught you to see the world, and opening up a pathway for me to think about all the other wonderful ways in which a corporate culture that is truly inclusive could (and should) be the new norm.

Dr Liz Wilson's Biography
Dr Liz Wilson is on a personal mission to create a world where everyone is included and valued for their difference. It was after indirectly experiencing the exclusion and discrimination of her husband, who is profoundly Deaf, that she committed her career to inclusion. In fact you may even recall her viral wedding video, which has amassed over 300-million views, of her using sign language to sing the song ‘1000 years’ to her husband before walking down the aisle in 2018. Versions have been created by social media pages across the internet in English, Portuguese, Japanese, Arabic, and Hindi.
Soon after their wedding the media became interested in their story. This provided an opportunity for Liz to start spreading the message and her vision for a world where everyone is included.
Dr Liz has been described as inspiring, captivating, engaging, passionate, professional, courageous, and a game changer.
As founder and CEO of The Inclusive Organisation Group of companies she combines her 20+ years of expertise in organisational transformation for Asia Pacific’s most notable organisations, a PhD in organisational culture and behaviour, and passion for inclusion. She has set the global benchmark for business-as-usual inclusion. Her innovative, yet pragmatic, approach is creating a global movement of change through the organisations, governments, and institutions we all interact with on a daily basis. This was even recognised at The Stevie Awards in New York City in 2018.
Dr Liz Wilson is as much ‘heart’ as she is ‘mind’. While she believes in what is simply the ‘right thing to do’, the behavioural scientist and researcher in her means she can back what she says with evidence-based undeniable facts.
If you really want to know what’s going on in your organisation when it comes to diversity and inclusion, then Dr Liz can uncover the facts for you. And she isn’t just looking at diversity targets or unconscious behaviours. Expect to uncover practical and tangible lead indicators of inclusion from your business strategy, to product and service design, right through to employment and work practices, and the way you engage with your customers. And don’t worry you won’t be left confused with what to do about it…you’ll end up with a very simple plan of attack for improvement.
Combining her expertise in organisational transformation, a PhD in organisational culture and behaviour and passion for inclusion, she has set the global benchmark for inclusion and is creating a movement of change through the organisations, governments and institutions.
As a professional speaker and facilitator Liz will engage and inspire your guests with a desire to make a difference and contribute to creating a world where everyone is included.
Speaking Topics Include
While Liz will create a presentation bespoke to your event theme, objectives, and participants; here are some ideas to get you started…
What a Deaf Guy Taught a Privileged Girl
An authentic and vulnerable story of inclusion, love, and personal transformation. This is not your average keynote presentation. Dr Liz invites you into her life with insightful honesty and humour, telling the stories you would only expect a best friend to share with you over a glass of wine. The punch line is about how overcoming bias and doing things differently is critical to creating an inclusive world and organisation.
Inclusion Beyond the Celebrations and Cupcakes
Dr Liz breaks the news to participants that celebrating labels with cupcakes won’t get us past acceptance, and to get to true inclusion we need to throw away the labels and instead focus on a pragmatic approach to organisational transformation. This keynotes includes specific examples of exclusion that are contextualised to the audience and includes opportunities for audience participation.
