Vicki Saunders

Founder of SheEO. Serial Entrepreneur. Award-winning Mentor.


Vicki speaks on a variety of topics related to innovation, technology, women, entrepreneurship, fintech and culture. She also prefers a more feminine approach to speaking;  the dialogue over the monologue. Her favourite speaking style is being in dialogue with a great interviewer at your company or organization with lots of Q&A to ensure relevance to the audience.

Vicki is masterful at speaking to all audience ages and stages from students to corporate leaders to entrepreneur associations to your women's leadership teams.

Keynote Topics:

The Radical Generosity Advantage

Imagine being surrounded by a global network of radically generous people. What would you do to take your business to the next level if you were one step removed from whomever and whatever you need? Vicki Saunders, Founder of SheEO will share the vision and the impact to date of radically rethinking what we need to get our innovation to the next level; #radicalgenerosity


Everything is broken, What a Great Time to Be Alive

We are living in unique times where 62 people have the same wealth as 3.5 billion people. Every industry is being disrupted significantly and if yours hasn’t been yet, it’s coming soon. Our economic model is played out and needs a reboot. We need innovation, fresh thinking and new approaches to help us create a better world. In this highly energizing talk Vicki takes us on a journey through what’s broken in order to open up our individual and collective mindset to see the possibilities for innovating a whole new path forward. 


Navigating the Way Forward - A dialogue.

Most people are locked into a way of thinking that keeps giving us more of this same world, including keynote speeches. Rather than broadcast to the audience, Vicki rethinks the keynote to bring out a dialogue that is co-created, personalized and timely. Pick your favourite interviewer - a senior executive, a precocious thinker, one of your internal innovators - and unleash the questions. This dialogue style is the way forward and ends up being highly relevant, insightful and meaningful to the people in the room because they help to form the discussion. 

Further topics include; workplace of the future, leading in a post-hero world, what’s next, network-building to innovate, and others available upon request.
