Libby Gill Speaker Biography

Libby Gill knows change. She grew up on two continents and went to eight different schools before putting herself through college waiting tables. Starting her career as an assistant at Embassy Communications, a television company founded by the legendary producer Norman Lear (All in the Family), Libby went through three corporate mergers and rose to become head of publicity, advertising, and promotion for Sony’s worldwide television group in just five years.

After a decade at Sony, Libby went on to lead public relations and corporate communications at media giants Universal and Turner Broadcasting. She exited the corporate world after fifteen years in leadership roles to become a first-time entrepreneur in her forties, founding Libby Gill & Company, executive coaching and leadership consulting firm in Los Angeles.

For the past 21 years, Libby has guided clients to lead their teams through change, challenge, and chaos. She shares the science-based concepts of hope theory to help them define a future-focused vision to inspire their teams to compete in today’s ever-changing world. In her executive coaching, leadership consulting, and keynote presentations, Libby guides people to:

• Reframe change as an opportunity for massive growth

Libby’s clients include Acura, ADP, Disney, EY, Honda, Intel, Kellogg’s, Medtronic, Microsoft, PayPal, Sony, The Honest Company, Viacom, Warner Bros., Wells Fargo, and many more.

Libby is the author of six books, including the award-winning You Unstuck; Traveling Hopefully; Capture the Mindshare; The Hope-Driven Leader; and Leadership Reckoning. A former columnist for the Dallas Morning News, Libby has published book chapters and peer-reviewed articles for numerous journals and trade publications. Business leaders including late Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh, Stephen M.R. Covey, Dr. Marshall Goldsmith, and Dr. Ken Blanchard have endorsed her books. 

A frequent media guest, Libby has shared her success strategies on the CBS Early Show, CNN, Inside Edition, NPR, the Today Show, and in BusinessWeek, Good Housekeeping, O Magazine, Self, The New York Times, Time, Wall Street Journal, and many other media outlets.
