Lindsey Pollak Speaker Biography

Lindsey Pollak is a New York Times bestselling author and one of the world’s leading career and workplace experts. She is passionate about helping individuals and organizations navigate and thrive in the ever-changing world of work.

Lindsey was named to the 2020 Thinkers50 Radar List, which honors the top global management thinkers whose work is shaping the future of how organizations are managed and led.

Her next book is a response to the Covid crisis: Recalculating: Navigate Your Career Through the Changing World of Work was published by HarperCollins on March 23, 2021.

Her previous book, The Remix: How to Lead and Succeed in the Multigenerational Workplace (HarperCollins, 2019) was named a Book of the Month by both the Wall Street Journal and Financial Times. She is also the author of two career advice books for young professionals: Becoming the Boss: New Rules for the Next Generation of Leaders and Getting from College to Career: Your Essential Guide to Succeeding in the Real World.

Lindsey’s speaking audiences and consulting clients have included more than 250 corporations, law firms, conferences and universities, including Aetna, Citi, Estée Lauder Companies, GE, Goldman Sachs, Google, Pfizer, Verizon, Yale, Harvard, Wharton and Stanford.

Her advice and opinions have appeared in such media outlets as The TODAY Show, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, CNN and NPR.

Lindsey is a Cappfinity VEE Brand Ambassador and has served as an official ambassador for LinkedIn, a Millennial workplace expert for The Hartford and chair of Cosmopolitan Magazine’s Millennial Advisory Board.

Lindsey is a graduate of Yale University.


Imagine that moment when you’re driving a car and you make a wrong turn or miss
an exit. Your GPS will glitch for a few seconds and then a robotic voice will say:


Thanks to the global pandemic, it’s as if every working adult on the planet is in our cars, hearing this voice, all at the exact same time. Even if the pandemic did not lead you to a major transition, you’ve likely spent the past 11 months making readjustments and pivots to keep up with the rapid pace of change in the world today. We are all Recalculators now.

Recalculating is no doubt a challenge—but it’s also an opportunity. That is the message of New York Times bestselling author Lindsey Pollak’s timely, inspirational and action-oriented presentation based on her brand new book, Recalculating.


What if generational change is not a problem to overcome, but an opportunity to be optimized?

For the first time in history, five generations now share the workplace, and leaders must balance a generation gap of multiple decades between the oldest and youngest employees. Generational issues are often exacerbated during challenging times, such as the global Covid-19 pandemic and the remote and hybrid work situations it has created.

New York Times bestselling author and multigenerational workplace expert Lindsey Pollak — often called a translator among generations— will share her insights into how organizations and individuals are changing the way they do business to better manage and leverage the unique skills and talents of each generation.

In this dynamic, engaging, action-oriented program, you will gain specific, actionable strategies to manage cross-generational challenges and turn multi-generational understanding into a competitive advantage.


How do you advance your career in a remote work environment? How do you receive the feedback and mentoring you need in times of uncertainty? What is the appropriate networking etiquette in a pandemic?

In this timely, inspirational and action-oriented presentation, New York Times bestselling author Lindsey Pollak promotes the importance of developing and maintaining a stellar personal brand in today’s challenging times.

Her advice and anecdotes draw on timely research, her own extensive experience and recent interviews with successful professionals across a wide range of industries and experience levels. For maximum impact, Lindsey provides real-world, actionable tips to help you take immediate steps to apply the advice immediately in such areas as remote communication, managing up, handling conflict and working effectively from home.


According to the Association for Talent Development, 75 percent of executives point to mentoring as playing a key role in their careers. But, as workplace expert Lindsey Pollak shares in this vital session, mentoring can take place in a wider — and more impactful — variety of formats than the traditional one-on-one coffee meeting or 60-minute Zoom call.

This program is designed for mentors and mentees to attend together to explore a wide range of mentoring options such as micro-mentoring, small group pods, reverse mentoring (a.k.a. co-mentoring), personal advisory boards and more. Lindsey will also share best practices for both mentors and mentees to ensure every interaction is valuable for both participants.


As remote work continues, many professionals are juggling multiple priorities while continuing to perform well at work: parents overseeing kids at home, younger professionals working among roommates or family members, caretakers of aging parents and everyone managing the daily challenges and anxieties of the global health crisis.

This program offers some relief in the form of tactical, actionable solutions to implement immediately to lessen one’s anxiety and manage multiple priorities in the midst of uncertainty and frequent change. Join Lindsey Pollak, a leading workplace expert and New York Times bestselling author, for a dynamic, interactive program on this important topic for all professionals.


What does it take to transition successfully from college to the real world?

What common mistakes do new grads make when applying for jobs and when they arrive in the workplace? What does it really take to find and win the job of your dreams?

In this interactive, action-oriented keynote, New York Times best-selling author Lindsey Pollak shares the job search success secrets she’s learned from recruiters, young professionals and her own successful career. Students will leave this session with increased confidence and actionable strategies for building their personal brands, networking, interviewing and more.
