Victoria Pelletier Speaker Biography

Victoria Pelletier has never let circumstances stand in her way. Growing up in an abusive home until she was removed and later adopted, Victoria’s childhood was filled with abuse, sexual assault, and physical violence. But none of that has stopped her. Victoria has overcome tremendous odds to pursue a life of corporate success and leadership. It’s easy to let our circumstances stand in our way. But we don’t have to. Circumstances of our past only rob us of our future if we let them. Victoria chose not to let her circumstances be her excuses.

By age 24, Victoria was offered her first executive role with a large, dynamic, and fast-paced organization. Yes, that’s dreadfully young to have such accountability and responsibility. It was her tenacity of spirit, her confidence that she could do the job, and her grit to see that she could rise to the occasion, empowered by the leaders around her that led to her success. Now with 20+ years in corporate leadership, Victoria has held senior roles in companies such as AON, American Express, and IBM.

Victoria’s message is that we CAN have it all, as long as we live a life of #NoExcuses. Victoria proves that it IS possible to have a life in which women CAN succeed as a mom, as a corporate executive, as a spouse, and much more.

As a member of the LGBTQ community, Victoria knows about diversity and inclusion, and why one without the other is of little value.  It’s not enough to have other voices at the table when those opinions aren’t being heard.  Victoria’s messages have stemmed from her struggle, and success, in being accepted as a woman in the male-dominated board room, and as a member of the LGBTQ community.

A personal journey of overcoming childhood abuse and trauma to ultimately live a life of #NoExcuses, becoming a successful Corporate Executive, Author, Brand & Networking leader.

Take-Aways: Very motivational. Highly inspiring with hard-won, leadership lessons.

Ideal for: Sales, Human Resources, Women’s Empowerment and Motivation.

Accelerating Your Career Through Strategic Networking and Building Your Brand
Accelerate your career, and your success, through strategic networking. More than simply sending “connect” requests on Linkedin, strategic networking is about building your personal brand and forming key relationships that will turbocharge your career.

Take-Aways: Actionable steps on how to craft a brand, start/maintain a network, and leverage that network for true success. Victoria also explores the surprising reasons why developing work-related personal connections can be difficult, especially in today’s highly corporate environment, and why it’s also a crucial skill to accelerate advancement.

Ideal for: Any client-facing corporate audience (sales, client management, marketing), early professionals, front-line and mid-level management.

Diversity & Inclusion – Hearing All the Voices at the Table
Companies talk the talk of Diversity & Inclusion but fail to create environments where D&I is an integral part of the organizational culture. This keynote focuses on strategies that help organizations create a genuine, lasting D&I culture. Victoria also explores unconscious bias, ways to address and educate employees, as well as technology that assists in Talent Acquisition/Recruitment using D&I strategies. Victoria shares her personal story as the youngest executive in the room, at 24 years old, and the only woman (and often, the only LGBTQ person as well).

Take-Aways: Actionable steps on how to develop D&I strategies and tactics to move the needle, moving the conversation from talk to measurable action.

Ideal for: Business and HR leaders/professionals, as well as senior management.
