Jen Dalitz is an exquisite storyteller. An accountant and management consultant by training, she certainly speaks the international language of business: numbers. Yet beyond the data and analysis, Jen influences and engages through telling stories and sharing experiences that are relatable and will be remembered, long after the slide-show has faded.
An internationally recognised change agent, Jen has a proven track record in developing and executing business strategy at the advisory, executive and board level. She has founded three start up businesses; is a notable commentator on women in leadership; and is leading a groundswell to harness the power of followership.
Jen’s career in finance and management consulting spans 25 years, diverse industries, international borders and a host of Fortune 500 and ASX50 companies.
For 20 years Jen has been leading people and change – as a frontline manager, executive, CEO and Board Chair. She knows first hand what it’s really like at the pointy end of execution, what it takes to make change stick, and how to motivate others to step outside of their comfort zones.
As a keynote speaker, Jen inspires and provokes the audience to step up and embrace change and to actively lead, follow, or get out of the way.
As a facilitator and MC, she comfortably commands the room and ensures the audience is engaged and invested in the experience; while her business acumen, consultative approach and back-stage professionalism will put the event organiser at ease.
Jen’s approach to business and life has been described as practical, refreshing and real, and this is reflected in her speaking style. She will have you engaged with stories of business and life adventures, to deliver a memorable and entertaining experience you certainly won’t forget
Jen is the author of Little Wins for Working Women, and a contributing author to Ideas Volume 3 and The Modern Women’s Anthology, and has been blogging for more than a decade at The SheEO Blog and now jendalitz.com.
What clients say:
Jen Dalitz was the Master of Ceremonies at our recent flagship Growth Summit 2015 events in Melbourne and Sydney. With a line up including Jim Collins (Good to Great) this was our largest event yet, and with 4,000 business leaders in attendance there was a lot on the line! Jen was absolutely committed to the success of the event and kept the day on track by transitioning speakers and adapting audience directives as the day unfolded. Her attention to detail, personalisation and preparation for the event enabled me to relax and enjoy the day.
The Growth Faculty
Jen addressed my team as keynote speaker in the aftermath of a large company restructure that resulted in 30% of the employees being made redundant. Her perspectives on common sense, team work and how to overcome adversity were insightful and very valuable to everyone. Jen is a highly professional individual and she delivers high value in her presentations. Her “down-to-earth” attitude combined with her professional corporate experience is unique and I can highly recommend her for presentations that require thought provoking high impact.
Jen presented a workshop called “Taking Charge of Your Career” to our staff across four cities and the feedback from Jen’s sessions has been great. I have had employees specifically come up to me some days after the session they attended, saying how much they enjoyed it and how great Jen’s tips were on planning for their career.
Jen has been a sought after speaker at our events on several occasions, most recently on the topic of why it is absolutely critical to develop a curious approach in business. Her laid back and personable style instantly connects with her audience, both small (less than 10 people) or big (over 100). Jen has a very natural sense of humour and threads very funny side stories throughout her talks. I’d highly recommend Jen as a thought provoking speaker who connects with her audience.
Jen kicked off our very first “Inspiration Before Breakfast” seminar. We received overwhelming feedback from our members about Jen’s presentation, which described her as highly engaging and leaving them with some practical ways to improve their own career. I would highly recommend Jen as a speaker to any professional group.
Women Lawyers Association of NSW
On behalf of our Women’s Network, thank you very much for speaking at our forum this week. The feedback we have received has been wonderful and the women present felt inspired by your talk and ready to make some changes!
Jen presented to the senior women within our organisation on ‘The Art of Negotiation’. The presentation was engaging, based in solid theory and research findings, and provided options and solutions which were realistic and practical. The impact of Jen’s presentation has been long lasting, often referred to by the participants, and has motivated them to take action. I would highly recommend Jen as a speaker who invokes energy, purpose and motivation in her audience.
SA Department for Water
Jen Dalitz presented to our inspiring women group and they were very impressed. Jen has a wealth of knowledge about working women, the challenges they face in their careers and some great ideas on how to meet these challenges and overcome them. She was an excellent presenter and the feedback from the audience has been glowing.
Jen’s friendly and vivacious personality, along with her extensive knowledge of working in male dominated industries, resonated extremely well with the audience at our International Women’s Day function. Her presentation “Serious Success Strategies for Working Women” was engaging, informative, and inspirational. The ability to turn an everyday event into a motivational message is not something that a lot of speakers possess, Jen certainly does.
Jen provided some fascinating insights into the challenges women face in the workplace, supported by realms of statistical data that outlined the industries and regions that were more actively tackling the issues. She was able to tailor the presentation to include issues prevalent in the IT sector, which matched our audience’s needs perfectly.
Ernst & Young
Jen has helped to focus our business on the opportunities and challenges in working to achieve gender balance at senior executive level. With her expert advice, the latest research and best practice examples, we have been able to define our strategy and areas for development in the diversity space.
