Raised under a flight of stairs: Who is Jillian?

The value that she brings as a motivational speaker aside, you might ask, why Jillian?

Well, like everyone else, she’s had her share of challenges and difficult moments. Unlike most people, though,
Jillian’s story has been a unique one.

Born to British parents, she grew up in a slum in India where basic human needs were a luxury and decency was a difficult thing to come by. So abject were the conditions that for a time, she used to live under a flight of stairs where she called home.

Poverty and lack of proper food saw her lose four of her siblings during her childhood. For those that survived, daily

life was characterized by struggle and danger from people who considered them outcasts due to their different skin complexion.

From a young age, Jillian was determined to get herself and her family out of the yoke of poverty and suffering. The determination was always there. Fast-forward several years and many heart-wrenching twists and turns later, and she eventually lived to achieve her goal.

As the now published author describes in her captivating memoir,
A Voice Out of Poverty, she went on to work as a banker for big banks like RBS and Bank of America where she enjoyed a high-flying 23-year career. Despite her efforts winning her awards and promotions to the executive level, she was keen to help as many people break their limitations and transform their lives.

That is how she ended up as a
resilience motivational speaker and corporate trainer.

Today, Jillian is the embodiment of resilience, and it is this message that she travels the world spreading.

A catalyst for change, her passion is to inspire people to conquer adversity and achieve their full potential. She specializes in motivating and uplifting organizational teams and individuals at a personal, professional and communal level to take ownership and unleash the power of positive change.
