Former Entertainment Giant Libby Gill Spills On What It Takes To Be A Leader


The most motivational and effective leadership speakers are those who have a proven track record of leading in their own field. Libby Gill has accumulated more than enough life experience to draw from when speaking on leadership: she has spent close to two decades as a leader in entertainment communications, and has lent her talents to Hollywood heavyweights including Universal and Sony. Today, Libby is the CEO of her own coaching and consulting firm, Libby Gill & Company. Audiences from around the world have soaked up her advice, which is tailored to help both longtime and new leaders reach new heights in their career. You might have even read Libby’s advice in The New York Times or Time magazine, or seen her speaking about leadership and success on CNN or The Today Show. Many of Libby’s clients are already leaders and recognizable names in all sorts of fields, including lifestyle, technology, entertainment, and more. Some of Libby’s clients come from the entertainment world, such as ABC Disney, AMC Network, and Warner Bros. Others are prominent technology brands that are familiar household names and already changing the world, including PayPal and Microsoft.

In addition to her impressive set of professional accomplishments, Libby’s personal life is nothing short of astounding. Her bestselling book, Travelling Hopefully: How to Lose Your Family Baggage and Jumpstart Your Life, will undoubtedly inspire readers from all backgrounds, as she delves into her family’s history of mental illness, alcoholism, suicide and more. She has also written two additional books that have been endorsed time and time again by business leaders: You Unstuck: Mastering the New Rules of Risk-taking in Work and Life and Capture the Mindshare and the Market Share Will Follow: The Art and Science of Building Brands.

In her talk “Igniting Bold Leadership: Inspiring Purpose and Driving Performance,” Libby hones in on the direct link between individuals taking responsibility for their actions, and their organization’s success. This is a topic that ties in directly to Libby’s own experience, too: having served as the Senior Vice President of communications and public relations for Universal, and Vice President for Sony and Turner Broadcasting, Libby has seen her fair share of what makes an effective leadership strategy — and what doesn’t.

This is just one small example of what Libby talks about. Libby offers a variety of speaking services: not only does she frequently present powerful keynote speeches, but she also zeroes in on your company’s specific needs with custom training programs and executive coaching. This coaching is particularly effective for organizations that want to foster leaders who are more than willing to stand behind the decisions they make in the workplace.
