HR Professional

Lisa Bell is on a mission to build better workplace cultures. With two decades of experience and an MA in Human Resources Management, she founded her first HR consultancy in 2014. Working with organisations of every size and sector, Lisa became increasingly aware of discrimination, harassment, and toxic behaviour as systematic issues - widespread, deep-rooted, and difficult to confront. Again and again, she saw leadership desperate to make change, but at a loss for how to do it. So in 2018, she founded Tell Jane to help organisations do better.

Lisa knows that every workplace is different and every team is unique. She’ll strive to understand your specific needs and challenges, and she’ll work with you to deliver lasting change. That might mean developing robust policies and procedures, or training and coaching your people to put your values into practice. Her philosophy is that prevention is always better than cure: by proactively building a diverse, equitable and inclusive culture, toxic behaviour can be eliminated before it has a chance to take root.

For Lisa, culture change means getting people engaged. She is a dynamic, energetic educator who aims to shift mindsets and behaviours from top to bottom: whether she’s coaching senior management in inclusive leadership, working with in-house HR to tackle toxic behaviour, or empowering employees to be effective allies, Lisa helps people see what part they can play in the journey to a more equitable workplace.
