Lisa Kerr – The Fight! When Autism and ADHD go head-to-head

While some of the traits of Autism and ADHD overlap, these are two very different neurodivergent conditions and as someone diagnosed with both, Lisa Kerr has spent years understanding how the conditions present for her, where they work together and where it can sometimes feel like there’s a fight going on in her head.

Lisa is a Neurodiversity Speaker, International Coaching Federation Certified Coach, and Consultant. As a Certified ADHD Life Coach, she helps people develop strategies to overcome the challenges associated with Neurodivergence so you can reach your personal, academic and professional goals.

Autistic, ADHD and gifted (also known as twice-exceptional or 2e), Lisa only found this out in her forties. She says β€œMy brain is wired differently. I can absorb information, process it on the spot and create innovative solutions for clients. But Autism and ADHD present challenges in the workplace – believe me, I know!”

Lisa originally trained as a Chartered Accountant with Deloitte, and has a Corporate Finance, HR and Operations background. She also works as a business consultant, Executive Coach and mentor.

Rory Lemon – Navigating the Mindship: From Loss to Boss Without the Gloss.

Rory Lemon, Mental Fitness Trainer and NeuroCreative Leadership Coach, will speak about his past experience and future theories on managing the relationship with the mind and some takeaway tools to manage hyper-sensitivities and social anxiety.

Marshall Mandiangu – Talk Title TBD

Marshall is a multi-talented singer, rapper, producer, and multi-instrumentalist.
