Lisa, the Diminutive Disruptor, has championed the radical position of Client-Centred Legal Innovation. Using Design Thinking she has saved more than 40,000 hours of unproductive legal work. In that journey, she discovered there's human side to lawyers. Lisa (The Diminutive Disruptor) is a former corporate lawyer and ABC Radio Breakfast Presenter, turned global leader in Client-Centred Legal Innovation.
In 2015, whilst working at a global law firm, Lisa Leong and her partner-in-crime, Tristan Forrester, created the "Re-Imagine Legal" framework to co-develop a series of design thinking workshops and innovation sprints. This collaboration has so far resulted in a saving of more than 40,000 lawyer hours spent on unproductive work, and has won multiple innovation awards.
Lisa’s unquenchable curiosity and appetite for lifelong learning has seen her graduate from the University of Melbourne (Science/Law) in 1995, the Australian Film Television and Radio School (Radio Broadcasting) in 2003, and the Stanford d.school/Stanford Graduate School of Business (Customer-Focused Innovation) in 2016 - plus earn her the title of “Queen of the Short Course” for attending numerous, seemingly random, short courses ranging from Fencing to Flemish.
