IGNITING BOLD LEADERSHIP: Creating Engagement, Inspiring Purpose, and Driving Action
As a former leader in public relations and corporate communications for companies including Sony, Universal, and Turner Broadcasting, Libby shares powerful leadership strategies for igniting deep engagement and aggressive action in your organization.

With an emphasis on linking underlying beliefs (emotions) with ongoing behaviors (actions), Libby connects the dots between personal accountability and organizational success. With an energetic personal approach, Libby gets your group thinking, talking, and - most important - taking action on new ideas the very next day. Libby's flagship presentation is ideal for both established and emerging leaders.

HOPE THEORY: How Belief, Behavior, and Accountability Drive High Performance
How do you re-energize your workforce when it’s clinging to the status quo? What can you do to infuse your leaders - and future leaders - with vitality and vision?

Give them the greatest gift of all: hope.

In her dynamic and original keynote, Libby shares the scientific data as well as her own research on hope theory and its impact on the workplace. She demonstrates why hope is one of the most significant - and most overlooked - elements of successful leadership and corporate culture.

YOU UNSTUCK: Creating a Culture of High Engagement and Bold Risk-taking
Sooner or later, every individual and organization gets stuck. It’s just part of the human condition. But you don’t have to make stuck your normal state!

Author of the award-winning You Unstuck: Mastering the New Rules of Risk-taking in Work and Life, Libby guides you to change your beliefs so you can change your behaviors. By discovering the powerful link between emotion and action, you’ll understand why we allow excuse making, mediocrity and negative behaviors often get in the way of our own success - and what you can do to change those patterns forever.

CAPTURE THE MINDSHARE: The Critical Connection Between Engaged Workforce and Brand Excellence
Your brand isn't about slick language, logos or taglines. It's about the people on the front lines that are charged with furthering the organizational mission every single day. If they're not deeply engaged and highly committed, your customers won't be either.

Libby helps your organization capture the mindshare - that is, the heads and hearts - of its clients, customers, and workforce so that the market share will follow. In this presentation drawing on Libby's latest book, Capture the Mindshare and the Market Share Will Follow, you'll learn to align your employees' personal brands with the corporate vision to create a culture of collaboration and engagement.

    "We just had Libby as our closing keynote today and she was absolutely fantastic. Our theme was Celebrate Success and I think the biggest success we had was Libby. She was incredibly accurate in reading our audience and addressing the issues that were pertinent to them. I don't think we could have had a more on-mission and powerful speaker."
    --Minnesota Aging Services

    "Libby had a great message about the strategies you need to build a powerful brand. She was warm and embracing and has tons of energy. We loved every minute of it."
    --Credit Union National Association

    "Libby did a great job. She came in today, very inspiring, and I think personally touched the heartstrings of a lot of us. We all have our hang—ups and our fears and I think for me personally she really inspired me to take more risks and improve myself. She inspired me to be a better person, a better family man and a better businessman. So, I thank Libby for the great job she did today and I think she can help your organization as well."
    --Washington Public Utilities District Association

    "I previewed more than 20 speakers for our leadership event, but kept coming back to Libby Gill. The warmth and intelligence that I saw in her video were exactly what I wanted for our group of high potential future leaders. And Libby delivered even more than I’d hoped for."

    "Libby was absolutely fabulous…a perfect blend of credible business experience, fascinating life circumstance (without being cloying—this is tough to pull off) and helpful insight into how to reframe stagnant perspectives and effect real change. The best part is her enthusiasm and humor—and her skillful avoidance of the type of rah—rah cheerleading cliche trap that many speakers fall into. I am not alone in feeling this as her talk sparked a long and interesting discussion among conference participants."
    --Global Pharmaceuticals

    "We’ve seen a lot of great speakers here at Disney, but Libby’s presentation was one of the most inspiring I’ve seen in a long time. She managed to blend practical business information with deep insights about personal responsibility and leadership. After a very challenging year, our group was ready to get back to work, totally re-energized by her empowering message."
