Jill's KeyNote

What’s Your Geostrategy? 


Geopolitical risk is the number one global corporate risk. This keynote will overview the top geopolitical risk factors affecting businesses today and how leaders can mitigate these risks and turn them into business opportunities.    


Becoming a Global Corporate Citizen  


This talk provides an overview of key human rights issues affecting global business operations, such as confronting climate change and population displacement, improving grievance mechanisms for workers, combatting xenophobia and race-based discrimination, and protecting rights during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.


Leaders will emerge with actionable takeaways to mitigate risks and seize opportunities from emerging human rights concerns, and to establish themselves and their businesses as responsible and ethical global corporate citizens.     

Building Trust as a Leader 


Drawing on my extensive research in trust in organizations, this presentation covers how business leaders can build and maintain trust. Leaders will emerge with actionable takeaways for building trust as ethical leaders, building the trust of employees within their organizations and leveraging that trust to build and maintain the trust of customers and communities. 


Leadership Has No Gender 


Too often, dialogue about gender and leadership devolves into divisive conversations about “male” and “female” leadership traits. In this talk, I argue that it’s time to shift the conversation to inclusive discussions about the traits that make good leaders great, which include attributes that are traditionally both male and female.  


I also provide a workshop on building these traits and improving dialogue about leadership within organizations.
