Lisa Wright

Founder

Menopause the Wright Way

Lisa was the MD of database company based in Manchester for 18 years, which was a subsidiary of a global information company. As a member of the senior management team, Lisa was involved in the four private equity buy-outs that the group were subject to between 2002 and 2015, ultimately resulting in the 2017 acquisition of the group a US listed financial services company. Subsequently, in 2019 Lisa retired from the corporate world and decided to follow her passion for sport, nutrition, health, and well-being.

She studied various aspects of nutrition and diet and then completed a Masters’ degree in Exercise and Nutrition Science at University of Chester, whilst also qualifying as a British Triathlon Coach.

Lisa’s interest in the menopause was triggered by her dissertation research project, looking at the impact of Vitamin D on peri/menopausal symptoms experienced by female endurance athletes.

Lisa’s business focuses on supporting companies with their menopause initiatives, providing education and training via onsite or remote sessions.
