LISA GABLE is recognized worldwide as a turnaround mastermind. As CEO of several organizations, and as a former Presidential appointee, US Ambassador, UN Delegate, and advisor to Fortune 500 companies, Lisa has orchestrated and executed the successful turnarounds of well-known private and public organizations in all industries and sectors. She is highly regarded in business, political, and philanthropic circles for her ability to tackle difficult issues directly and with discipline and diplomacy. Over the years, Lisa’s proven turnaround methods have helped her move organizations to higher levels of performance by creating sustainable partnerships and profitable business models that have brought together political parties, corporate competitors, and even disparate nations. She is currently the CEO of FARE, the world’s largest funder of food allergy research. Prior to leading FARE, she was a senior advisor at PepsiCo and President of the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation where she worked on cross-sector solutions to improve intractable public health issues. Her first book, Turnaround – How to Change Course When Things Are Going South is available beginning October 5th.

In this episode, Lisa and I chat about her work across three seemingly different worlds: government, industry and Silicon Valley, and nonprofit and how she bridged the polarized and deep gap of these divided worlds to tackle one of the greatest public health burdens of all time and achieve success in just a few short years, ahead of schedule.

You will learn about…

• Lisa’s background in government as a US Ambassador, UN Ambassador and appointee to two US Presidents and how she learned to turn around any situation

• How she tackled the obesity epidemic by removing 6.4 trillion calories from the food supply in a public-private partnership with 300 retailers, food and beverage manufacturers, restaurants, and professional sports organizations, including companies like PepsiCo.

• Why she believes mentors are so important in building your career path and supporting others to do the same

• Why she wrote Turnaround: How to Change Course When Things are Going South which launched this week, available on Amazon now

• Why her turnaround method – that has been applied in settings all over the world – will apply not only to YOUR business, but in social settings and in your home
