Jenny Blake is an author, career and business strategist and international speaker who helps people move beyond burnout to build sustainable, dynamic careers they love. Jenny is the forthcoming author of The Pivot Method (Portfolio/Penguin, 2016), a book that borrows lean and agile principles from Silicon Valley in a 3-step methodology for navigating major career change. With two years at a technology start-up as the first employee, over five years at Google on the Training and Career Development teams, and 3+ years of running her own business, Jenny combines her love of technology with her superpower of organizing information to help clients through big transitions, and to help organizations engage and retain top talent. Jenny created her first website, Life After College, in 2005, then released a book of the same name in 2011 that was featured in Target’s 2012 graduation display. She has been featured on Forbes.com, US News & World Report, Real Simple magazine, and has spoken at several major universities and top companies such as Columbia, TEDxCMU, Google and Best Buy. Jenny loves chocolate, coffee and personal development books. Dogs, dancing, gadgets, yoga, writing, traveling, and long meals with friends all make her pretty happy too.
