Looking for someone to speak about community or facilitate connection-building magic?

I have spoken in front of thousands of people about the importance of community-building. I have experience MC-ing conferences, leading workshops, consulting on event design, and presenting on panels. Of course, I also run The Joy List Social.

But don’t just believe me. Listen to the wonderful people who I’ve collaborated with:

This was so much more than a networking event. This was a safe space for me (and I imagine all of the other budding entrepreneurs) to feel both extremely scared and wildly passionate about my dreams. This was an opportunity to lean into feeling sure and confident about what I can offer the world.

Since attending Hustle Fest, I have continued to feel safe, grounded, and at peace, and it’s the first time I have EVER not worried about what’s going to happen in my business. I’m just not worried. WHAT?! I have always worried. Like an addiction, it has always been there. Not anymore, and I can’t really explain it, but I think it has something to do with feeling connected to a whole bunch of other people going through the same thing. I know and trust that I’m not alone in my struggles or my success. And that? That is one of the most valuable things I can think of and feel.

Thank you for working so hard and passionately to put this together. Your heart is big and beautiful, and it feels restful to know that there are other women and humans living their passions like you to make this world a better place.

We live in a society that is starved for connection and intimacy. When new friends and partners are made and severed just as easily with a swipe, click, or login, we lose what it means to be seen, heard, and valued by another human being. Jillian restores that sense of connection and community by creating a safe and regenerative structure to see ourselves and others in the way we were supposed to. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Jillian, I’m giving you a virtual hug for creating joyful, vulnerable authentic spaces in this crazy city!

I just went to The Joy List Social for the fist time, and I absolutely loved It! As an introvert, I rarely go to social events at all, let alone events where I don’t know anyone. But I can honestly say that there wasn’t a dull moment or a time where I didn’t feel included. The second I walked in I was welcomed with smiles and laughter. Plus, the food and music was bomb. I even left with 5 new friends! I plan on going to the next event. I fully endorse and support Jillian. She rocks!!!!!

In my eight years in New York City, The Joy List Social is the bravest space that I’ve been to. Thank you, Jillian!
— Suzanne, Joy List Social attendee
The community was just amazing! There was a feeling amongst all the attendees that we were in a supportive environment and building a lasting network of people who are compassionate and empathetic. There wasn’t the typical feeling of “what can you do for me.” Thank you, Jillian!”
— Amy, Hustle Fest attendee
The Joy List Social was such a perfect introduction to New York City and all of the amazing souls here! I ended up hanging out with some people later in the evening and making even more new friends.

Thank you for putting together such a wonderful event on Saturday. I was blown away with the space that was created and held and how smoothly everything went. I left feeling full and exhausted...the perfect balance!
— Andrew, Hustle Fest coach

My consulting clients like me, too:

I had the opportunity to connect with Jillian around building meaningful regular events that foster community and connection. She had such great ideas and helped me think about this issue in such a new way— from rules of engagement to creating and communicating spaces for vulnerability and challenging ideas in a constructive way.

For anyone looking to implement community building events that consistently engage your users, or are looking to create thoughtful meaningful safe spaces for deep connection, I recommend reaching out to her.
