Speaker Bio

Jean Marie DiGiovanna is an international keynote speaker, leadership development expert, certified executive coach and best-selling author.

With her body of work on Renaissance Leadership and over 25 years of experience across the globe, she helps leaders and their teams shift the way they think, lead and communicate rapidly creating a culture of increased trust, collaboration and innovation.

She is a master of experiential learning and has a unique ability for asking the questions no one is asking and deeply listening for what's not being said. She has a gift for creating a safe environment where leaders and their teams find their voice, speak their truth and resolve conflict swiftly and gracefully.

A disruptor, a change catalyst and an innovative thinker working with leaders to uncover hidden talent, unlock new ideas and positively shift the culture so that no talent is left behind. Jean Marie brings the heart & soul into business and the "being" back into human.

Having studied Computer Science back in the day and being one of the founding partners of Cambridge Technology Partners, a high-tech startup in the early 90's, she knows what it takes to grow a company from ninety people to over 4000 worldwide, how to bridge the gap between technology, people and process and how to create a culture of collaboration, authentic leadership, high-growth and innovation.

Jean Marie was named a “Top 10 Coach of Boston,” by Women’s Business Boston. She is the co-author of "Success is a State of Mind" and the author of the bestselling book "Stop Talking Start Asking: 27 Questions to Shift the Culture of Your Organization".

Jean Marie's programs are highly engaging and content-rich, with tools leaders can apply immediately to create high performing teams and shift the culture of their organization.

In true Renaissance Spirit, when Jean Marie isn’t working, she is busy traveling the world (when the airways open up more), working in her art studio, skiing fast and dancing to live Latin music.

          “The topic on Renaissance Leadership was quite a revelation for me. As a former recruiter, I tend to pigeonhole applicants to a specific skill-set fit for a particular position. Jean Marie teaches us that casting a wider net will enable us to hire the true creative geniuses. Instead of stereotyping the “eccentrics”, we should create an environment that will allow them to innovate and cultivate their hidden talents; thus making them the future pillars of the organization. I highly recommend her topic for all HR practitioners. It is truly an eye-opener.”

          “Jean Marie’s talk struck a chord for many members of our organization and leaders of the community when she spoke at our International Training & Development Summit. Her topic was very well received and the techniques she shared provided a refreshing insight into what many great leaders do at work. Her energy was just right and she connected with the audience with ease. Even as she was speaking to over 250 people, she made the audience feel she was speaking to them as one.”
