Nicole Williams

2016 Speaker

NICOLE WILLIAMS learned in her early life, that there is a connection between the job we do and the quality of life we live. Williams loves the world of work and career, and helping other women achieve their dreams. After working both as a career counselor for the Canadian National Institute for the Blind, and as a senior business consultant with Service Growth Consultants, she founded WORKS in 2006 with the help of Michael Loeb, co-founder of Priceline and the Synapse Group. She had a vision of building a business that not only helps young women create the careers of their dreams but also supports the companies attempting to recruit and retain them as employees, as well as the businesses that are interested in providing them products and services aimed at enriching their lives. Today, under the WORKS banner, and with an incredible team, Williams has authored three best-selling books, including “Wildly Sophisticated: A Bold New Attitude for Career Success,” “Earn What You’re Worth” and “Girl on Top.” Williams’ career advice has been covered in national outlets such as The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Marie Claire, “TODAY,” “Good Morning America” and CNN. @thegirlontop
