Lisa Ryan

Lisa Ryan

With nearly 30 years experience working across technology, cyber and data, mainly in the finance industry and then more recently moving into purpose-led organisations such as the education and water sectors, her roles have developed over time to consider the human side of digital transformation, including human-centred design, customer journeys, systems thinking, process improvements and robotic automation. Her interest in technology was based on the power it provided to enable better, faster, smarter ways of working, helping people to work more efficiently and organisations to continually evolve in new areas of innovation. 

Lisa was born and raised in Albury/Wodonga and returned to the area several years ago, after seeing such growth and change in her home town and work opportunities that were not afforded earlier in her career. Since then, she has found inspiring local businesses and employers, and the central location of Albury/Wodonga allows for easy travel to Melbourne or Sydney for networking and conferences. She is passionate about solving real problems rather than shiny new toys, supporting people in their transition to digital ways of working, and continually learning from others. She is constantly looking for ways to pay it forward to local youth by building STEM work experience and placements, promoting local job opportunities in regional areas, and pathways for neurodiverse students to find futures that are not restricted by their perceived limitations, but defined by their incredible strengths.
