About Jackie Dryden

Jackie Dryden is no stranger to blazing trails. She broke ground when she led one of the few woman-owned advertising firms in the male-dominated industry. She did it again when she published her unique parenting book, Just Me: What Your Child Wants You to Know About Parenting, and traveled the nation to speak about it on television and radio shows, to newspapers and magazines, and before professional and educational organizations.

Now, she’s blazing a new trail: leading a Purpose revolution in corporate America. Her new business book, Get Your Head Out of Your Bottom Line and Build Your Brand on Purpose, guides visionary leaders to reconnect with their true strengths through the power of Purpose. The book is shaking up C-suites as she asks leaders to uncover and communicate the true reason their company exists—not just to make money.

With a passion for helping others discover “why” and “what for,” Jackie leads individuals and companies to understand how to better relate and communicate what sets them apart.

Jackie speaks to companies, schools and organizations across the country about business strategy, personal purpose and women’s issues. She shares her wit and wisdom with groups as small as 30 to auditoriums of several thousand.
