Lynne is a business speaker, facilitator and speaker coach who works with individuals and organisations to help them connect with influence and respect. So if you want to improve your workplace communication and have your people:

  • engaged
  • understanding & respecting each other
  • working better together
  • being less stressed and more productive
  • respecting you as a leader

then Lynne is the speaker you want. Lynne’s audiences get real value from her practical down to earth approach, her honest, engaging and entertaining delivery and her talent for making the complex simple and relevant.

Creator of the RIPE Personality Profiling System in 2004, Lynne has trained thousands of people on how to work with the strengths and challenges of being an Apple, Mango, Lime or Banana. Lynne has her audiences focus on understanding these different behavioural types so they can work more effectively together, creating an engaged and productive workforce and a workplace culture of trust, empathy and respect for diversity.

Lynne started life in the tourism industry, working with various airlines and hotels, then established Schinella Incentives, a performance improvement company, where she learned that the most successful teams were the most diverse.

So when Lynne established Ripe Learning in 2001, it was natural her consulting, workshops and keynotes had a strong message of understanding and celebrating our differences.

She also provides keynotes and training in storytelling for business, pitching and presenting skills, and runs annual speaker retreats especially tailored for executive women.

She is the author of Bite Me! and other do’s and don’ts of dealing with our differences that also supports her key message of Respect.Connect.Thrive.
