Heather Younger Speaker Biography


Heather Younger’s expertise in adversity started early. As the only child from an interracial and interfaith marriage, she was shunned and excluded by extended family. While it left her with a lot of questions growing up, it led her to develop a high level of resilience and a deeply inspired commitment to advocate for the voiceless. Heather is dedicated to creating opportunities for people to learn strategies for reframing their own adversities and stories to lead more productive and joyful lives.

With humor, warmth, and an instant relatability – she helps organizational leaders, teams, and individuals create a laser-focused clarity into what makes them tick. She shows why that’s important while delivering clear and purposeful strategies for embracing change and recognizing the tremendous strength in diversity.

As a champion for positive change in workplaces, communities, and our world at large, Heather inspires others by teaching the kind of intentional leadership that drives real business results such as increased employee engagement, loyalty, collaboration, and connectivity.

The result?

Team members feel heard, seen, and valued
Companies create safe environments and a culture of trust
Diversity and creativity are celebrated
Resilience rises
Stress falls
Productivity goes through the roof
Customer retention and referrals soar
Everyone wins – sometimes in ways they didn’t even realize possible.

Heather Younger is the founder and CEO of Employee Fanatix, an International TEDx speaker on Adversity, Leadership Podcast Host, Business Coach, Facilitator and Attorney, who has earned a reputation as “The Employee Whisperer”. She holds a law degree, is a regular contributor to “Forbes” and “LinkedIn” and is the best-selling author of The 7 Intuitive Laws of Employee Loyalty, which hit the top of the “Forbes Must-Read List for HR Professionals.” Her upcoming book, The Art of Caring Leadership, was picked up by Berrett Koehler Publishers and teaches the radical power of caring support in leadership and in the workplace. She is a member of the Society for Human Resources Management, on the boards of Mile High SHRM, National Speakers Association of Colorado, and the American Cancer Society. That’s a lot of accolades and titles – but what is most important to know about Heather is that she brings a breadth of experience, extensive quantitative and qualitative research, and a truly deep passion for advocacy, resilience, human relations, and connection to every audience, every workshop, every consultation.

She’s also a mother of four who, like so many parents and business professionals, gets just how difficult and challenging everything can be – and she’s bringing the solutions and strategies to make change less scary, more manageable, and sometimes – even adventurous!
