The Challenge: The world has changed! Work and Life are blurred and blended yet distanced and virtual. We’re all in search of new ways to stay courageous, engaged, connected, and productive in a changing world. Learning how to lead and navigate in the midst of ongoing disruption and uncertainty is critical to the survival and success of your businesses.

Solution: Now is the time to double down on driving leadership and high performance, even if it has to be done virtually. For nearly 30 years, Jackie has been helping people become more courageous leaders who accelerate innovation, embrace change, and know how to pivot in uncertainty.

When you book Jackie, your speech will be tailor-made. She will work closely with you to thread your objectives into her message and co-create a keynote that has ROI and lasting impact.

Takeaways: In-person and virtual seminars and workshops give people the courage, reassurance, and direction they need to nimbly adapt to changing conditions and to rise strong together even though they face uncertainty and disruption.

She teaches graduate classes part-time at the University of San Diego, School of Leadership & Education Sciences and she also writes and speaks on the SheEconomy, a $20 Trillion female strength to know.
