Jamila has travelled all over Australia speaking about her best-selling book Not Just Lucky and how women can become more confident in the workplace. She is as comfortable running an intimate day-long workshop for 20 executive participants, as she is addressing audiences of 1000+ at the Sydney Convention Centre.
Jamila's easygoing, professional and infectious style also puts her in high demand as an MC, interviewer and host. She has interviewed many celebrities and thinkers, including Bill Gates, Kim Kardashian, Julia Gillard, George Megalogenis, Manal Al-Sharif, Aminatau Sau, Dannii Minogue, Gillian Triggs, Zoe Foster-Blake, Zinzi Clemmons, Tom Keneally and Naomi Watts.
"If you want to start a movement you need someone with energy and warmth to get the ball rolling. You need someone who is genuine, intelligent and kind. Jamila Rizvi takes the energy in the room, shape shifts it right along until you have an united community of leaders with fire in their belly. Jamila is a quite extraordinary and informed speaker."
Christine Gordon, Event Manager, Readings
“Jamila is an exceptional speaker. She has such a presence on the stage and speaks to content that is well ahead of the current conversation. I would go as far as to say that she is a gender equity futurist. You can hear a pin drop when she speaks and the feedback we have from delegates is always fantastic. She is unrelenting in her approach, it is no wonder she is one of our leading social commentators."
Suzi Finkelstein, Program Director, Women and Leadership Australia
Jamila is one of the most impressive, articulate speakers and creative thinkers. She is warm, engaging and utterly at ease, whether it be interviewing Julia Gillard or talking vajazzling in Sydney Town Hall alongside Ruby Wax."
Jemma Birrell, Artistic Director, Sydney Writer's Festival
"Funny, inspiring, relevant - Jamila brought all these qualities to her role as MC. In fact she was so good, more than one attendee suggested that she should deliver the 2017 Lecture! "
Tim Mayfield, National Director, Australian Republican Movement
Jamila arrived with a profound understanding of our business and event objectives. She was warm and approachable, with a genuine interest and passion for the product, and this made her presence well received by influencers and vendors alike.
