Set Your Life to Vibrate
Jillian Walker The simplest way to explain Jillian is that she’s a super chatty, over-involved, HR lady. By day, she works with local leaders to become better leaders, while working with employees to become their best selves. Cool eh? Officially she’s the HR Manager at two tech companies - ImageX Media and UrtheCast; she’s in charge of growing organizational culture. In 2010, Jillian was the recipient of the ’Rising Star Award’ from the HR Institute of Alberta and the HR Association of Calgary. Outside of work, Jillian speaks to the student community, mentors young professionals and sits on the board for a few non-profits. Whether hosting a workshop, brainstorming with a business student club, or working one-on- one with a high achiever, Jillian’s goal is to encourage others to think differently. At the end of the day, Jillian’s passion lies in education at the global level. She has been involved with the UN’s Nothing But Nets campaign and their commitment to end malaria in Africa since 2008. This year she is leading the Vancouver chapter of Junior Chamber International as Chapter President.
