Full Presenter Profile & Bio
Having led complex business units, major projects, customer service teams and change programs in a number of Fortune 500 companies, Jen brings a depth of experience and credibility to the business topics on which she presents and consults. She is a Certified Practicing Accountant and holds a Bachelor of Arts (Accountancy) and a Master of Business Administration.
As a keynote speaker and corporate advisor, Jen inspires, educates and provokes the audience; as a facilitator and MC, Jen is highly regarded and comfortably commands the room. Prior to founding her own business, Jen’s career in finance and consulting spanned 16 years, international borders and a host of Fortune 500 companies.
As an executive and business consultant she experienced first hand the challenges women face as they climb the corporate ladder; and the impact on the bottom line when female talent is under-utilised.
Jen Dalitz, the founder and SheEO of sphinxx, takes you on a journey of professional reflection and then projection to inform and discuss some of the issues around Women and business success such as: what are the common traits of successful women in business? Are your behaviours at work setting you up for career success, or for a fall, or worse still occupational obscurity? Who are the key influencers in your business and what is your relationship with them? What successful women do to increase their professional standing, and more importantly what not to do to ensure you realise your own career goals.
ASX guidelines require companies to report on gender diversity in executive roles and board positions; Australia’s first universal paid parental leave scheme has commenced; and with over 100 years of International Women’s Day, together, these events are creating an unprecedented demand for skilled women. Jen can teach you everything you need to know about the regulatory environment, competitive threats and how you can win the War for Female Talent by attracting and retaining the best women on your teams.
The world has changed. Business is no longer about winning the race, but redefining it altogether. It’s about innovation, resilience and adaptation… and smart leaders realise that the solution to business longevity lies in one ready resource: women. Jen will open your eyes to the opportunity that women present to all sectors and industries - as consumers, talent and leaders. She can explain why we need to adopt a more feminine style in business and how smart leaders can tap into the female psyche and the power that women yield – including the power of their purse strings. And importantly, Jen can show how men and women can ride the GQ wave to career success.
In 2010 Jen was invited by the Malaysian Minister of Women to speak at her annual Summit in Kuala Lumpur - one of only two international keynote speakers on the program – and also represented Australia in a BBC global debate on the advancement of women and the Millennium Goals. Jen‘s blog - www.TheSheEOblog.com - is at the intersection of women, work and leadership and attracts in excess of 50,000 page views per month and 3,000 unique visitors.
An avid commentator, Jen regularly features in media publications such as Business Review Weekly, The Australian Financial Review, Sydney Morning Herald, The Daily Telegraph, The Age, Courier Mail, The Sun Herald, Adelaide Now, In The Black, The National Accountant, Management Today, Marie Claire, Madison, Working Women and Latte, and on TV programs including Lateline Business, The Finance Quarter and Sky News Channel on issues relating to women in leadership.
Away from sphinxx, Jen is the mother of a small child and runs a farm in the country. She is Chairman of the Peer Support Foundation and the author of Little Wins for Working Women, and a contributing author to Ideas Volume 3 and The Modern Women’s Anthology.
