Elizabeth Frisch is a best-selling author and business performance consultant to Fortune 100–1000 companies, local, state, and federal government agencies, nonprofits, and the U.S. Military. Elizabeth is a graduate of Purdue University and holds a degree in Chemical Engineering.

In 2002, after the birth of her first child, she was diagnosed with two autoimmune diseases, a failing thyroid, 140 pounds overweight, and desperately trying to help her son who was diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. Through that experience, Elizabeth realized she was going in the wrong direction with her career and life and that ‘you can’t engineer humans’. She quit her job, lost 100 pounds, put both diseases into remission, launched her first company, and cross-trained in psychology, health, organizational development, and business transformation.

Fast forward 12 years and Elizabeth is now a best-selling author, keynote speaker, business auditor, high performance organizational coach, and serial philanthropist. She founded The Thrival Company, a women-owned business headquartered in Austin, Texas helping clients make their big ideas happen locally and globally. Her first book, Mission to Million$ – Taking Big Ideas and Making Them Reality, has achieved best-seller status. In 2014, she was a Top 3 finalist out of hundreds of nominations for Small Business Leader of the Year by the Austin Chamber of Commerce.

Elizabeth Frisch work in the for profit, nonprofit, and governmental arenas allows her to bring a broad and unique perspective on life and the habits that make us ‘sink like a stone’ or succeed beyond our wildest expectations. She brings to every group she works with a diverse and often humorous perspective on our very human nature and the unpredictable behaviors that happen in organizations to drive performance (or not).

    “Mission to Million$ – Taking Big Ideas and Making Them Reality”

    • Did you know that 99.9% of ideas fail to launch? Have you ever had a great idea and it never happened? How many of you in your job have felt frustrated watching idea after idea fail. Most big ideas never make it out of our heads, much less into our work, home or community. We have been taught from a young age to let most ideas go, as it’s just ‘not possible’ or we stop trying to make an idea happen because there is too much resistance. Yet all positive change in our society can be attributed to people fulfilling on big ideas despite failures, resistance, and mistakes. You can be one of those ‘idea’ leaders! This high energy keynote gets to the root of the problem and leaves attendees inspired and empowered to go out and make their ideas happen!

    “Change Yourself, Change Others”

    • Mastering Your Own Behaviors So You Can Inspire Others to Shift Theirs (publishing in 2016). It’s so easy to find fault in others and criticize them for their inability to change. We often get frustrated by our lack of control or power to get others to change. Yet, the key to mastering working with others to shift their behaviors is to master shifting your own. This fun, engaging keynote provides 8 critical practices to shifting yourself so you can powerfully shift others.

    “The Mobile Workplace is Coming, Are You Ready?”

    • The workplace is changing rapidly. Is your leadership ready? In less than five years, Millennials and Generation Y will make up 75% of the worldwide workforce. Our workplaces now span five generations.
