Jo Miller is a globally renowned leading authority on women’s leadership. She began her career with raw, unpolished ambition and learned the hard way about office politics and the difficulties of being a woman in a male-dominated environment. This led her to find Jo calling: helping women around the world overcome these types of obstacles and advance into positions of leadership and influence.
A sought-after speaker, Jo delivers more than 70 presentations each year to audiences of up to 1,200 women. Her audiences span the globe, including North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East. Her clients include Bank of America, BP, eBay, GM, MetLife, Microsoft, Princeton University, the USDA, Verizon, and hundreds of other commercial, government, nonprofit, and academic organizations.
Through coaching, her own research, and fierce compassion, Jo developed a pragmatic, yet powerful roadmap to help women move from where they are in their careers to where they aspire to be. In her bestselling book, Woman of Influence: 9 Steps to Build Your Brand, Establish Your Legacy, and Thrive (McGraw-Hill 2019) she shares this step-by-step process with even more women and to help readers present themselves as the talented, emerging leaders they already are. Or as she often says: don’t be the best-kept secret in your organization.
Jo is the CEO of Be Leaderly, a firm focused on leadership development, consulting, and research initiatives to elevate women’s voices at work.
Jo grew up in Australia, and she has been celebrating life free from breast cancer since 2016. She believes that when life hands you lemons, you should stuff them in your bra and sing “Ta-dah!”
