Award-winning Speaker, Bestselling Author, TV & Podcast Host

Hey! I'm Jen Buck.
I began the first decade of my career in a startup helping to launch a billion dollar global and award-winning brand while in a leadership development training role. Having now been a professional Keynote Speaker for 24 years, I've given over 10,000 programs impacting over a million people throughout my career. I am currently the Chief Communications Officer for an organization that helps families in need and have been the Chief of Staff for three federal U.S. Congressional campaigns.  I know leadership and getting more women into the C-Suite matters to me. 

As a bestselling author with six publications, each of my books have been written to help elevate women.  I also host a television show that is seen in 50 countries worldwide, as well as a podcast that highlights female leaders who are changing their corner of the world. For the last 6 years I have led over 30,000 women in the southwestern and western regions of the U.S. for one of the largest women’s organizations in the country which  helps create momentum for women who are looking to take the lead civically. I'm committed to amplifying women in any way I can. 

Partnering with the biggest brands in the world, I help to develop their high- performing women through keynotes, training, and coaching. With an inspiring and fast-paced speaking style, along with a strategic roadmap, women can confidently step into their power and transform their leadership influence. We need more women in the executive suites and boardrooms where decisions are being made, and I'm passionate about helping them get there.


When we make space for more of us, we create success for all of us.

There has truly never been a better time for women to take the lead in creating massive social impact than right this very moment. We are watching more women open organizations, more women lead companies, and more countries with women at the helm-- these are exciting times as we watch women take center stage and stand in their truth.

Daring to Lead With Vulnerability

*  WOMEN  *  INSPIRATION  *  MOTIVATION  *  LEADERSHIP  *   (Keynote: in person or virtual)

Women, Leaders, Teams, Corporations, Entrepreneurs, Direct Sales Organizations


The power of vulnerability in leadership is not to be underestimated. When done in the right environment with the right people, talking about your struggles can be life-changing and should be seen as a superpower and not a weakness. While being vulnerable can increase your risk of being hurt, emotionally or physically, it also opens up the opportunity for leaders to have meaningful conversations that build authentic relationships. In fact, studies have shown that social connections benefit our mental and physical health, including the cultural health of an organization.

For leaders looking to practice vulnerability, it's important to understand that being vulnerable doesn't mean that you need to share your entire life story; waterworks are not a requirement. Rather, it's about understanding where your strengths and weaknesses lie and being honest about them with not only your team, but yourself too. Being open doesn't come naturally to everyone. Exhibiting vulnerability requires high degrees of emotional intelligence, self-awareness and humility, so you'll need to be comfortable admitting mistakes and depending on your teammates. But if you model this leadership style, you'll reap the benefits of an inspired and innovative workforce.

When we hear the stories of successful people we are frequently inspired by the circumstances and obstacles they were able to overcome along their path. Although we go to great lengths to hide our own vulnerability, it is most often the vulnerable leaders who share their weaknesses and struggles that we find the most authentic, inspiring and easy to connect with.

In this powerful and motivational keynote/workshop you will learn to:

  • Build meaningful connections that will stand the test of time
  • Experience greater innovation by meeting challenges with authenticity and openness
  • Utilize Emotional Intelligence which will lead to greater trust and commitment on the team
  • Stimulate stronger collaboration, learning, and growth with those you lead
  • Understand the power of Strategic Exposure when leading through challenging circumstances
  • Recognize the power of human connection in the workplace and how to use it to increase retention, output, and commitment
