Lisa Gerhardt Lisa has recently stepped down from her career where she was recognised as one of the leading international head-hunters in her sphere of HR, having worked for a number of global search organisations, plus being one of the founders and board members of a respected and successful global search boutique. In addition to her day job as a search consultant she was also responsible for developing new service lines and developing alliance partnerships. Her time in search covered more than 25 years of working with organisations helping them shape and build world-class HR functions to deliver real business advantage. In addition to her functional expertise, she also has a depth of understanding of a number of different sectors, providing an appreciation of the market and overall corporate dynamics beyond a purely functional perspective. Prior to her search career Lisa lived and worked in South Africa for many years and worked in marketing, corporate identity consulting and print broking. Now that she has moved away from her corporate career her focus is on applying her knowledge and networks to support those less fortunate. As a mother of two she has a natural empathy and desire to want to help children and young people. ‘I am delighted to be appointed as a Trustee for Dreams Come True with its mission to bring to life a dream, especially those for whom a dream has never seemed to be a possibility. For me this is an exceptional way to bring my experience to bear and I’m thankful and grateful for the opportunity to contribute’.
