Lurata Lyon

“If it’s meant to be it will be, if not I will make it happen.”

Lurata Lyon was a victim of human trafficking and organ harvesting in Yugoslavia whilst still a teenager. She is now an international public speaking and presentation skills coach and a motivational speaker. She has set up and run her own business in countries as far and wide as the UK and Singapore, working with C-Level clients, ambassadors and charities. She has also appeared on news programmes such as GB News. 

The aim of her business is to help audiences explore how they can make better connections in their professional life and their personal life, how to overcome their obstacles so they are happier, and how to be more positive and have better outcomes.

In addition to being a superb motivational speaker she is also on the advisory board of the charity Help Children Now where she has been helping refugees in Ukraine reach safety.

In March 2024, Lurata was the recipient of the Human Rights Award at the Women’s Awards.

Lurata spoke of human resilience and mindset at one of our events at Goldman Sachs in Singapore. Her horrific story, the experience she has had and the determination she has gained against all the odds, left us all feeling moved, inspired and with a strong belief that you can go through anything in life, literally and still find a way to overcome your obstacles, succeed and reach your goals.

Having heard about Lurata’s life story from the people in the industry and her amazing work on Presentation skills, Mindset, Mental Health and Human resilience, WPP was honoured to invite Lurata as a guest speaker at our global conference in Thailand called Stream Asia which is a 3-day event. She shared her chilling experiences in such a profound way, yet it left the audience in tears, including myself. Never have we thought we would be in the presence of someone that’s been through such an inhuman act, but her humbleness and warmth reassured us that we could go through anything and still survive not only that but become stronger and wiser. Lurata inspired the attendees so much so that she was invited back to WPP Stream Asia the following year. She is amazing.

I knew Lurata’s story to some extent, but little did I know how her experience and her speech can blow people away. She is very engaging, funny, humble and down to earth yet wise, knowledgeable, experienced and inspiring. I couldn’t have wished to have had anyone else for our event. Totally and utterly mind-blowing speech.

I attended one of Lurata’s training sessions and was excellent. The techniques were so useful and after just one session I noticed a vast improvement in my presentation skills. Lurata is great to work with… patient, insightful and inspiring and would highly recommend her services to any company where presenting is an important part of business. I take with me some really valuable learning which will in turn improve my professional performance and will have positive impact on results. Thank you Lurata.
