2020 Featured Keynote Speaker
Speaker | Trainer | Author | Comedian
Liysa Callsen speaker, coach, and comedian grew up with Deaf parents and her husband is Deaf too. It’s like she’s collecting Deaf people. Liysa can hear, however, American Sign Language is her first language. As a bicultural and bilingual individual, she developed transformational ways of communicating for those who want to be heard. Communication is key in any language.
Drawing on life experiences, Liysa uses stories, improvisation, audience participation, and tips to help give you a fresh perspective on your obstacles. She will teach us how to use humor in life and in business, help us embrace diversity to form stronger teams, and teach us the art of communicating beyond words.
Liysa trained with Second City Chicago and has turned her passion for business and humor into workshops, speaking engagements, and writings.
