Lisa Lyons: Marketing and Administration Clerk at Magdalen Chambers
Biggest professional achievement to date?
Becoming a young supervisor at South West Water, at the age of 19. Moving to Bristol in my early 20’s to clerk at prestigious St Johns Chambers but mainly becoming Joint Senior Clerk of Rougemont Chambers in 2009.
Advice for a young woman stepping into the world from school, college or uni?
Perseverance and enthusiasm always pays off. Make sure that whatever you do, you have prepared yourself and learn from your experiences whether good or bad. Be true to yourself.
If you could make one change to the world?
I would make the world a fairer place where everyone lives with peace and humanity.
Kindness and respect are attributes which are gifted to everyone, sadly not everyone chooses to use them. I’m a firm believer in what goes around comes around. A kind word costs so nothing but can make someone’s day. Also say thank you and well done if someone deserves it.
“You are so good at what you do because you have no idea how good you are. Just keep being you”

100 Most Influential Women 2018
Grow Exeter Magazine launched the ‘100 Most Influential Women 2018’ in Exeter and the region in December 2017 and we received around 500 nominations for influential women from all walks of life; our panel was spoilt for choice and hard-pressed to select only 100 from the talented nominees that they viewed. The Launch of the ‘100 Most Influential Women’ awards in 2018 has perhaps even more value than in any other year as it was just 100 years ago that the first woman was granted the right to vote in the UK.
Women have truly shown that they can shine in any environment, whether that be in the boardroom, teaching our children, climbing mountains, navigating uncharted waters, they can do anything that they set their mind to and we can’t wait to celebrate our own talented 100.
Honouring women in our March edition of Grow Exeter fell in line with International Women’s Day on the 8th March and the 100 finalists have each been featured in this special edition. To see the 100 finalists individually featured, please grab a copy of our March edition by ordering through the link below. We will be publishing each woman online throughout March and April so keep an eye on our Facebook page or website for their stories.
A huge congratulations to everyone nominated and to the #100WomenExeter, you are all amazing!
