When we have more respect and understanding for each other’s differences in every way, we can connect more effectively as human beings. We have less stress. We get more done. The world is a kinder place.

What Fruit Are You?

About Lynne Schinella


If you’ve ever been asked if you are an Apple, Mango, Lime or Banana, it’s likely you’ve encountered the work of renowned business speaker and facilitator Lynne Schinella, who created the Fruit Personality Profiling System in 2004, which is used by hundreds of companies across Australia.

Lynne works with teams to help them function more effectively, for less stress, greater productivity, more fun, and a fatter bottom line.

Author of Bite Me! And Other Do’s and Don’ts of Dealing with our Differences, Lynne pens a regular blog series, and hosts two podcasts Fruitful Conversations and Fruitful Pairs. Lynne’s second book is Pick Me! Loving and Living with People You Just Don’t Get.

If you’re after theory, formal and corporate, Lynne Schinella is not the speaker for you. But if you want the complex issue of engagement and leadership made simple, she’s the answer.

In between facilitating workshops with organisations, Lynne loves to bake up a storm at home in the beautiful northern rivers of NSW.
