I’m Jill Chivers – thank you for visiting my site!
I’m a serial entrepreneur and have created a number of successful businesses in the real and online worlds. I hope that your visit here sparks some ideas about how we can work together and how I can help you by bringing creative flair to your projects, events and workshops.
I’m a speaker, writer, coach, consultant, professional facilitator and workshop leader. I’m frequently told the work I do inspires real and lasting change in how people think, feel and behave.
Some people have told me I’m also a thought leader, and I know I’m definitely an action taker. I’m a perpetual student and am insatiably curious about people and what makes them do the things they do.
I’ve worked as an employee for huge global organizations and I’ve also worked as a solopreneur, running my own micro businesses.
I’m often asked to speak, to facilitate, to write and to collaborate with others. Working with other people would have to be one of the best jobs going – it fascinates, challenges and fulfils me.
In the corporate world, I was fortunate to have a brilliant client roster of some of the world’s most recognisable global names including KPMG, Deloitte, Macquarie Group and IBM, among many others.
I’ve worked for over a dozen law firms in Australia and for more than a handful of banks and other financial institutions including stockbroking firms. I’ve done work for insurance firms, telecommunication firms, software and pharmaceutical houses, a number of universities and arts organisations.
I’ve been very fortunate to have worked with a huge variety of organizations and done some great work with them.
Early in my corporate career, I worked for a huge global advisory and accounting firm, working on multi-million dollar, multi-phase projects, all over Australia, north America and Europe. That experience shaped me, in many ways, as the professional I am today. One of the most important tenets we worked to was “under promise and over deliver”, a philosophy I still work to today.
In my varied working life, I’ve also appeared in many media stories in Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the United States. Appearances include The Project, the Today Show, Sunrise, Today Tonight, The Circle, The Morning Show, Breakfast, Good Morning, Triple J, Be magazine, Prevention magazine, the Herald Sun, the San Francisco Chronicle and the Wall Street Journal.

Thank you for visiting and I look forward to hearing from you if anything you read or see here on this site sparks some ideas on how we might work together and how I can help you get the right help at the right time!
