Resuming our Meet the Team Series, we got to know more about a veteran of the Veritas team.

This week, we talked with our Head of Operations, Events and #2 Ranked Surfer in the team, Lisa Deaves. Lisa is an outdoors enthusiast who loves to paddleboard, hike and even dabbles in beach volleyball.  

After joining Veritas Events in 2011, Lisa started things out as our Senior Event Manager before growing into the operations expert we know today. She is our closest comparison to Albert Einstein when it comes to solving problems and we would not be the same without her. She is a dynamic powerhouse and leads a dedicated team of operational staff, so you know you are in good hands with her at the helm of your event.  

So Lisa, how long have you been at Veritas Events and how would you describe your role?

Almost 11 years. Every day is different, we get to work with amazing people in so many different industries. My role is to make sure everything runs smoothly and solve anything that might prevent that.   

What do you love most about what you do?

The People! I also love getting to be involved in so many different industries and working across different styles of events including incentives, conferences, virtual events and product launches. 

What’s your passion outside of work?

Anything outside, the beach, surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, beach volleyball or going for a hike. 

What was your first job?

Stacking shelves at the corner store in Noosa. I attribute all my future success in the world of Tetris to my time here. 

  • Book – To Kill a Mockingbird  
  • Movie – American Sniper or Dial M for Murder 
  • Song – There are many and it changes daily – today let’s go with Something About You Odesza Remix, Hayden James
