Jackie Huba in a sought-after keynote speaker and has addressed audiences around the world from the United States to New Zealand, and in Amsterdam, London, Milan, Berlin, and Tokyo. She speaks to thousands of attendees at corporate events for companies such as Disney, Marriott, American Express, Frito-Lay, and American Airlines, as well as at large association conferences each year.
When you hire a speaker, you are looking for someone who can teach your audience new ways to work but also inspire them to make it happen. Jackie believes that a keynote is not a talk done behind a lectern, but instead an interactive experience with your audience. She engages your audience with stories and lessons, often taking a hand held mic into the crowd and getting commentary from them. Jackie breaks the “fourth wall” by talking with your audience, not at them.
Jackie is a TEDx speaker, having spoken at one of the largest TEDx conference in the world: TEDxVancouver with 3,500 people in the NHL Canucks hockey arena. Check out Jackie's unforgettable TEDxVancouver talk, “Unleash the Power of Your Inner Drag Queen” − where she made history as the first ever TED talk to be done by a female drag queen. The talk is based on Jackie's new book, Fiercely You: Be Fabulous and Confident by Thinking Like a Drag Queen.
