About The Facilitators & Presenters:

Lisa Lisson, FedEx Express Canada President, BCC and SickKids Board Member & Author

As the president of FedEx Express Canada, Lisa Lisson has risen from an associate marketing specialist to one of Canada’s most powerful and influential transportation executives.

As the leader of over 10,000 employees across 64 locations, Lisa has helped build FedEx Express Canada into the most reliable courier network in the country, allowing consumers and businesses to connect Canada and the entire world with uncompromising speed and reliability.

Lisa has become a renowned public speaker in Canada and the United States for her revealing discussion about becoming the first woman and first Canadian president in FedEx Express Canada history. The sudden passing of her husband at a young age, raising their four children as a single mother, while building a successful career has enabled Lisa to acquire many insights and advice that she shares with her audiences with openness and frankness.

Under Lisa’s leadership, FedEx Express has consistently ranked highest among all transportation companies in Canada on leading published reputation indexes. In every year since Lisa was appointed president, FedEx Express Canada employees have rated FedEx as one of Canada’s best employers on the annual Aon Hewitt Best Employer’s in Canada Survey.

Lisa is an inductee to the Women’s Executive Network’s Hall of Fame as one of Canada’s most powerful women. She is a member of the IWFC Toronto Chapter and The Prosperity Project™ and is also one of 13 Diversity 50 CEOs.  Lisa is also a recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal in recognition of her achievements and work in the community. Lisa is passionate about access to quality healthcare for all children and, in 2013, she joined the Board of the SickKids Foundation and serves as a Director of the Board for the Business Council of Canada. Lisa holds a Bachelor of Commerce (Hons), University of Guelph. Lisa starred on the award winning TV show “Undercover Boss” and is a best-selling author of a memoir called “Resilience”.
