Join Lisa, who will tell you the story of her amazing journey into the depths of her own mind in this fascinating talk.

Just over a year ago, Lisa was faced with a decision that would change her life forever. She had to decide whether to have awake brain surgery to remove a tumour which lay deep inside her brain in the left temporal lobe, close to the area responsible for speech and language.

This decision came with extremely high risks - having the operation meant that she could have a stroke, may have to learn to talk, read and write again, or worst-case scenario, not survive the surgery.

Not having the operation meant living a life with four/five epileptic seizures every day and the chance that the ticking time bomb inside her brain could go off at any moment and this could take her life.

Despite the odds being against her and many people saying that she was crazy to even contemplate such a risky operation, Lisa made the brave decision to have surgery.

In the months following her operation Lisa's life changed beyond measure, she thought about life in a completely different way, she approached things with a different attitude and as a result of this, saw new and amazing opportunities presenting themselves every day.

Lisa wanted to understand why this was happening and couldn't accept that it was just "all part of the recovery". She spent months researching the brain and its many functions, spending time with neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuro-researchers, neuropsychologists and patients at The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.

With a heart filled with gratitude, Lisa will share with you the amazing things that she learnt about the brain, and how we are all capable of reprogramming our brains so that we can achieve greatness and euphoria.

Lisa believes that we can all 'awaken our brains' without having to go through major brain surgery.
