PowerUp Talks By Liza Wisner




  • POWERUP stands for 

    "Providing Opportunities Where Everyone Rises Up."


    I believe everyone needs a support system. That’s my role in our community. To PowerUp the Communities I serve. I do this by bringing people and technology together to help us succeed.


    At the age of 19, I moved to Corpus Christi, Texas from Nairobi, Kenya on a golf scholarship to pursue a career in Computer Science. I have turned my love of automation and humanity into a fulfilling life, winning multiple awards for community engagement and managing inclusive talent development initiatives around the world.


    I have worked with the executive leadership teams of various organizations to drive their growth and delivery of learning and development services. I lead the development and delivery of technical, industry professional, learning, and leadership development for over 10,000 individuals annually.


    I’ve been featured on NBC, The Apprentice TV Show, Al Jazeera, BBC, Black Enterprise, Caller-Times Newspaper, Hungry Kids, Kenya Golf Guide, KRIS Channel 3, Texas Business Women, Jamhuri Magazine, Nation Newspaper, The Standard, People, AOL Jobs, Reaching Neighbors, and many other media publications.


    I graduated college with highest honors, Summa Cum Laude from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi earning a Master’s Degree of Science in Educational Technology, along with a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science and a minor in Management of Information Systems.

    In addition to many awards, I have won an entrepreneur of the year award and was named “Corpus Christi Under 40, Person of the Year”.

    PowerUp Algorithms To Automate

    Computer Algorithms and like a recipe for a computer: An algorithm tells the computer what to do in order to produce a certain outcome.

    PowerUp Your Failures

    Failing up is your superpower! As much as it hurts, it’s an important part of life and in fact, failure is necessary in order to have success.

    PowerUp Heroes

    We often describe a hero as someone who becomes admired for their outstanding achievements in life or for their willingness to help others in dangerous situations. We rarely think of a hero when we describe ourselves. A PowerUp Hero has strength for two, ten, twenty, or 100. They live their lives in such a way that they are ready to support when they are needed. To become a PowerUp Hero you must give your entire life to being the best version of yourself - physically, mentally, and spiritually - for yourself, your family, your community, and in greater service to the world.
