Meet the team: Lisa Fernandez
Meet Brisbane Economic Development Agency’s marketing coordinator, Lisa Fernandez. Lisa brings a broad range of sales and marketing experience to the team, having previously worked in travel and sales at Flight Centre Travel Group and digital marketing within the real estate industry. A key focus of Lisa’s current role is providing marketing advice and support to the busy Business Events team.
My role within Brisbane EDA involves:
Providing marketing support to the Brisbane Business Events team for trade shows, events and day-to-day business activities. I also provide marketing support to the Brisbane Greeters and Visitor Information Centre as well as coordinating the Brisbane Visitor Guide.
What I'm enjoying most about my role is:
Being able to showcase what an amazing city Brisbane is to the rest of the world.
What I love about Brisbane is...
The great weather and the outdoor lifestyle.
One thing that makes Brisbane an ideal business events destination is:
How well connected the city is and how warm and welcoming the people are.
When I’m not at work you’ll find me...
Checking out the latest brunch spots. The Gunshop Café in West End always has great options. The potato and fetta hash cakes are a must try!
When friends/family visit from out of town, I always take them to:
South Bank and Eagle Street Pier via the City Cat.
If I had the chance to have dinner with one famous person, living or dead, it would be:
Definitely Oprah. She is so inspiring and has had such an incredible career, I would love to ask her what some of her stand out moments have been.
I would spend my last $100 dollars on:
Cheese, chocolate and chips!
