Keynote Presenters Chosen for the NAPO-SFBA in November
Written by Lisa Montanaro | July 11, 2012

I am over-the-top excited to announce that I will be presenting the closing keynote for the NAPO-SFBA Regional Conference in Sonoma, CA on November 3, 2012. But wait, it gets better — I’ll be sharing the spotlight with none other than Julie Morgenstern, who is doing the opening keynote. Now that’s coming full circle!

I heard Julie speak at the little old 92nd Street Y near my apartment in NYC back in 2001, and went up to chat and tell her I was planning to leave my law career and become a professional organizer too. She was super-supportive, and we chatted about our shared background in theater. Over the years, she has popped in to hear me speak at the NAPO Conference and always graciously said hello. Little did I know that I’d be sharing the same stage with her someday keynoting for my esteemed peers! What an honor.

I am relocating to Northern California this summer, so when the Conference rolls around on November 3rd, it will be in my new backyard. How thrilling! I am so looking forward to seeing colleagues and friends, old and new, and enjoying the beautiful Sonoma Wine Country.

Helping others be the best versions of themselves gets me jazzed!

I’ve worn many hats in my lifetime—often at the same time—while enjoying fulfilling careers. I’ve been a performer, teacher, sign language instructor, lawyer, career counselor, law professor, coach, consultant, mediator, entrepreneur, speaker, trainer, writer, and author. 

I’m an eternal optimist and life-long learner, constantly researching ways to improve personal and professional effectiveness. And it brings me great joy to then pass on the results of that persistent curiosity to my clients and audiences. 

Of all the career hats I’ve been privileged to wear, my favorite is owner of this business since 2002. Why? Because it provides me the opportunity to work with wonderful organizational and individual clients. On any given day, I get to connect deeply with audiences, work with dedicated teams, improve workplaces, watch clients have a-ha moments, and know I’ve made a difference in their lives and careers. And that is very satisfying.
