Liz Leyshan
Outdoor Ed Director


Liz Leyshan reminds us of the importance of determination when it comes to leadership, and how it’s often the simple things that are hard to find. Through her work with outdoor education organisation Mittagundi, she explores the need for young people to connect with a place, and one another.

Liz is the Director at Mittagundi, an outdoor education centre established with the belief that young people, mountains, purposeful work and challenges are natural partners. Mittagundi is situated on a 400-acre property near the old gold mining town of Glen Valley, on the Upper Mitta Mitta River, north of Omeo, in Victoria, Australia.

Jessamy Gee of Think in Colour was at Do Lectures Australia 2015 and created this graphic recording throughout Liz's' talk.
