Speaking Topics

✧Women's Empowerment✧
Bridging the Self-Perception Gender Gap: A Women’s Guide to Positive Self-Image


In a 1978 study published by the Journal of Social Psychology, Dr. Wayne Hogan found that females tend to underestimate their IQ scores, while male counterparts tend to overestimate theirs. Self-perception is directly linked to the outcomes one experiences in life. In order to elevate women, it is essential to improve self-perception. In this keynote, Jaclyn shares easy and practical strategies women can incorporate into their daily routine to improve self-image, and thus, reach their full potential.

Learning Objectives:
-3 strategies to improve self-perception
-How to let go of negative self-talk
-How to form daily habits that reinforce positive self-image

✧Building Resilience✧
The Art of Bouncing Back: How to Embrace Failure & Build Resilience

Most people believe that failure is a part of success. Best-selling author Jaclyn Gallo disagrees. Rather than viewing failure as only a part of success, Jaclyn sees it as the key to success... the secret sauce that so many are searching for. Jaclyn learned this lesson firsthand, when she spent $50,000 (that she won in pitch contests, raised on Kickstarter and borrowed using credit cards) on business ideas that never made it off the ground. In this refreshing keynote, Jaclyn empowers audiences with tangible strategies to embrace failure and build resilience, so they can overcome any challenge life throws at them, and most importantly unlock the limitless potential that’s always been inside of them.

Learning Objectives:
-How to reframe what failure means to you
-How to release shame from past failures
-3 resilience building habits to incorporate into your daily routine



"Jaclyn was the keynote speaker for our Young Professionals Network Month celebrating the many ways to 'make moves' in your career - both from a personal and professional front. With that, our leadership team brainstormed and knew she would be a great fit to close out the month long series of programming! Of course, she proved us right (beyond belief) and delivered such a powerful event with many lessons to takeaway. Jaclyn is so thoughtful and inclusive in her approach when speaking to a wide variety of attendees - majority being members from the YPN employee resource group but several others joined in from departments all over Comcast HQ and our virtual locations as well! She is a true inspiration and guiding light to all of those who have the privilege to hear her speak and even better yet, engage with her in a live q&a following. On behalf of myself and the YPN leadership team, we would be thrilled to have Jaclyn back anytime to speak to our community of Comcasters again. It was such a pleasure to work with her behind the scenes and moderate the session! She is a force to be reckoned with."
