Jillian Haslam

There’s a secret about women. But so many women are caught up trying to compete with men that we’ve lost hold of the qualities that set us apart and make us truly great. There are certain things women can do that men cannot, but when we spend all our time trying to be like men, we’re actually short-circuiting our destinies and putting a box around our businesses. Women need to believe we can make our mark on the world and bring about the change we need – in our own lives and businesses, and in the world.  Jillian Haslam brings her warmth, her incredible story of overcoming extreme poverty and abuse as a child, and her insights into neurology and how the mind works to her much anticipated talk The Mark of a Woman. She looks forward to sharing with you how she overcame great adversity to become the author, speaker, and philanthropist she is today. Like Jillian, you too can tap in to every one of your strengths – not just the ones we have in common with men – and far exceed the dreams and goals you had from an early age.
