      About Lisa Sayonas

      About me

      I have been working for The Women’s Organisation, a Liverpool charity and social enterprise since March 2011. I started as an Apprentice Administrator and have expanded my role over the years to include event and conference management, PA to the CEO & SMT, project management, governance, report writing and HR & recruitment. I am very passionate about mental health in the workplace, ED&I and ensuring the workplace is a healthy and safe environment for all staff members to develop in. I am comfortable communicating with people at all levels in the workplace including external partners and stakeholders and I can build lasting working relationships and develop new contacts. I am able to adapt to new situations, learn quickly with the ability to meet deadlines on a regular basis and work towards targets.
