Lisa Phillips is an author, blog journalist, arts and leadership educator and business owner living and working in Toronto, Canada. As the CEO and Founder of Canada’s Academy of Stage and Studio Arts, Lisa has built her professional career on bringing arts education and leadership development to thousands of children in the Greater Toronto Area and beyond.
Her passion for helping young people achieve success in all aspects of their lives inspired Lisa to publish her first book, The Artistic Edge: 7 Skills Your Child Needs to Succeed in an Increasingly Right Brain World. With the Foreword written by Raymond Aaron (New York Times bestselling author of Chicken’s Soup for the Parent’s Soul), the book explores the impact arts participation has on the success of the current generation. Competition for jobs is increasing, meaning young people need skills to set themselves apart in order to land their dream job.
