If human connection is essential, why do we thwart it by stereotyping others? Stereotypes are the fast-food of human connection: they fail to nourish us and, in the end, are detrimental to our thriving. Hilary Blair, leadership and communication coach, explores how a shift to Archetypes–the shared roles of the story of our lives–can assist us in expanding our views of others to create a more diverse and inclusive culture. Hilary Blair is a keynote speaker, champion of human connection, and the CEO of ARTiculate: Real&Clear. She is impassioned by moving beyond habits and learned behaviors to uncover what is unique and authentic in individuals and groups. A presentation and speaking voice expert, Hilary is a highly regarded coach and facilitator working extensively across the globe with a variety of businesses including American Express, Maersk, Staples, Liberty Global, Slalom, Merrill Lynch, and Hunter Douglas. Whether facilitating workshops on professional presence or on navigating tough conversations to improve leadership/team connection, or exploring the messiness of communication in a keynote. Hilary’s 30 plus years as a teacher combined with her professional stage, film and voice-over career present a unique skill set.
