Lisa Higginbottom

Lisa has 20-odd (very ‘odd’ as it happens) years' experience teaching in the lifelong learning sector including colleges and prisons. She has all sorts of high-flying qualifications, the most recent of which is NLP Trainer and a Hypnotherapist.

Lisa spent a year as Mayor of Derby. One of her pledges was to work with as many people as possible to get the best results for her city. One of the outcomes was working with ‘Art of Brill’ to launch Brilliant Derby, where she appeared on stage in full mayoral regalia and a pair of zebra slippers.

Lisa now spearheads our community interest company, Brilliant Communities, the not-for-profit side of the business that seeks to raise levels of positivity and happiness in the towns and cities of our great country.

A bit of an adrenaline junkie, her spare time activities include board breaking, arrow breaking (with her neck), bungee jumping, fire walking, abseiling... feel the fear and do it anyway kinda stuff!

Lisa is passionate about positivity and the results people can achieve if only they let themselves. Her theme tune is Ken Dodd's ‘Happiness’. Ouch!
