Business keynote speaker for hire Abigail Posner is the head of strategic planning and creator of Google’s think tank for agencies and brands called Google ZOO. She is known best as a thought leader on culture, business and technology bringing her own unique perspective to corporate culture and innovative branding and marketing strategies in the digital age. She is a highly requested corporate keynote speaker for business conferences, networking events and women’s leadership summits.

As the youngest of 3 children, Abigail learned early on that she had to create her own unique story to stand out amongst her equally successful siblings. She attributes her upbringing to helping her learn invaluable lessons she now applies as a leading authority on brand building, consumer motives and strategic planning for the future. Abigail’s passion for understanding why humans do what they do led her to study social anthropology at Harvard University. While this may seem like an odd major for a business executive, Abigail found that her knowledge played a key role in understanding how consumers operate and what motivates them.
She began her professional career in management consulting and eventually landed an advertising job with DDB Worldwide Communications Group. She worked at DDB for 11 years where she spearheaded strategic marketing efforts for industry-leading brands such as Diet Pepsi, Hershey, Cigna, Cotton Inc., and Acela. From 2007-2011, Abigail worked as an EVP & Strategy Director for Publicis. She built out the strategy department within the organization and also developed successful global marketing campaigns for companies including Coca-Cola, Nestle and L’Oréal.
Since December of 2011, Abigail has worked at Google where she launched her own think tank for creative brand solutions in the digital space. Through Google ZOO, she consults on corporate cultures and develops brand solutions for the likes of Nike and Toyota. She is also the author of her own leadership series called Humanizing Digital which is based on anthropological research explaining humans’ emotional relationships with digital.
