As one of Australia’s leading keynote speakers, communication experts and cervical cancer survivors, Lisa Lockland-Bell has over 30 years of international experience training, performing and presenting. The collision between Lisa’s career and experience with cancer has formed the foundation of her business today. With a contagious enthusiasm for life, she is changing lives by unlocking the potential that lies with the human voice.

In August 2016, Lisa was proud to accept the role of Ambassador for the ACCF. Lisa was diagnosed with Stage Four Cancer of the Cervix in 2005 and now lives a full and flourishing life. Here she talks about her journey with cervical cancer:

“It just made sense to become associated with an organisation such as The Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation (ACCF) who say and think a lot of what I believe about Women’s Health. I absolutely believe that awareness and education are the two greatest defences to this hideous disease. ACCF stands out because it is confronting the conversations that society need to have about what’s going on IN THE NETHER REGIONS!

I am so excited to be giving back and making a difference in developing countries. Not only do I get to work with an amazing team while raising awareness and funds, I have the privilege of travelling to Nepal to support local Womens Health with Vaccines against HPV.”

My tips for Australian women about cervical health:

Trust your inner voice when it comes to your own health. It is your most powerful weapon when it comes to your health.
