About Keynote Speaker Jackie Freiberg

About Speaker Jackie Freiberg…

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. Learning how to lead and navigate in the midst of ongoing disruption and uncertainty is critical to the survival and success of every business. 

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. 

In addition to in-person keynotes, Jackie offers 3 virtual paths forward designed to connect, challenge and engage people working in different locations. If you are not ready to meet in person, you have three virtual options:

  1. live-stream (or recorded) 60-75-minute virtual keynote with Q&A and slides
  2. virtual keynote delivered in five 15-minute (live or recorded) segments delivered once a day/week/month with Q&A and slides
  3. virtual coaching one-on-one or with your team

Takeaways: Virtual seminars and updates give people the courage, reassurance and direction they need to nimbly adapt to changing conditions, to stay connected and to rise strong together even though they may be working remotely.

The next steps are simple. Call your account executive to set up a discovery call with Jackie. She will listen to your objectives. Then, rest assured, your message will be tailor-made. When you book Jackie for your event, she’ll thread your objectives into her message for greater meeting ROI and lasting impact. 

Jackie is recognized as one of the “Top 30 Best Minds on Leadership” and is one of the most sought-after female business speakers in the nation. She speaks, consults and writes on Courageous Leadership, Innovation, Change, Engagement and The She Economy (a $20 trillion market).

Testimonials

I have had the privilege of speaking on stage to audiences all over the world. I have also sat in the audience and listened to some of the greatest speakers of all times. In my humble opinion, Jackie Freiberg is one of the very BEST I have ever heard. She has an inner passion to help people to succeed. She motivates a crowd of folks to join in for a cause. I am very cautious of who I put in front of my company. I would put Jackie on stage anytime to motivate my team.
