Leadership 3.0: Motivation, Inspiration and Innovation for the New Global Workforce
Named one of “America’s Best Leaders” by U.S. News & World Report, Rottenberg outlines practical ways to lead effectively in the new global economy. Using inspirational examples from the world-class entrepreneurs supported by her organization, Endeavor, Rottenberg explains: how to use chaos to your advantage; how to scale teams; how to excite employees and retain top talent; and how to lead in an age of disruption. Rottenberg also highlights tips for building a diverse global workforce - e.g., attracting millennials, women, and foreign nationals - and ensuring that all employees are productive, empowered, and find meaning in their work.
Intrapreneurship: The Edge to Success
We typically think of entrepreneurs as independent visionaries. But, in fact, many of the world’s best innovations are developed from inside existing companies. In this talk, Rottenberg inspires and instructs corporate managers to become “intrapreneurs,” or employees who attack problems with entrepreneurial solutions.
Drawing on 20 years of experience working with start-up founders, Rottenberg reveals what corporate managers can learn from top innovators. She shows how big companies can adopt an entrepreneurial mindset to foster fresh ideas and a company culture of innovation. From lessons in being agile and in “minnovating” (innovating in small steps) to tips for turning crises and budget cuts into opportunity, Rottenberg inspires managers to realize their full creative potential and transform companies from within.
Beyond India and China: Insights into the World’s Most Dynamic Economies
Every C-suite manager knows they have to think globally, but what does that mean? How can your company connect with the innovation and networks in these markets and avoid being left behind? One fact is clear: it’s not just China and India anymore. From Brazil to South Africa, Turkey to Indonesia, global growth is shifting to emerging markets, led by a new generation of entrepreneurs.

And she shares a series of practical lessons for adopting a global entrepreneurial mindset.
Reclaiming the American Dream: Getting Back Our Entrepreneurial Spirit
Has America lost its edge? As global growth shifts to emerging markets, there is an increasing sense that the American Dream is now most visible in places like India, China, Turkey and Brazil. How can the US regain its entrepreneurial “mojo” and be the powerhouse of innovation and dynamism it once was?
Rottenberg, who has been called “the voice of optimism in a sea of doom and gloom” and was named one of 100 “Innovators for the 21st Century” by TIME magazine, offers a clear prescription for how American workers can “bottle up” the entrepreneurial energy from the world’s top growth markets.
With anecdotes and advice from 20 years of working in emerging markets, helping to recreate the conditions of Silicon Valley abroad, Rottenberg delivers powerful lessons on how American managers can learn from the new realities of globalization while regaining the confidence to think like successful entrepreneurs.
Go Big and Go Home: Leaning into a High-Impact Life
“My favorite expression used to be ‘go big or go home’ - until I realized I needed to do both,” says Rottenberg, who in addition to being CEO of a major global organization, is also a full-time wife and mom of eight year-old identical twin daughters. Rottenberg shares insightful lessons on balancing career and family, suggesting parents with corporate jobs “show off your family photos” at work.
In addition to telling the inspirational story of building her organization in the face of numerous obstacles, she also relates moving personal stories, including when her husband faced (and survived) one of the deadliest forms of cancer. Through this, she learned the importance of embracing vulnerability and the power of community among co-workers. With a fun, engaging style, Rottenberg motivates audiences to see their potential and lead fulfilling, high-impact lives.

Building Entrepreneurial Ecosystems
When one business flourishes, it not only benefits its owners and employees, but also it can affect an entire community. Through Rottenberg’s experiences helping to scale businesses in emerging and growth markets around the world, she has seen first-hand how successful entrepreneurs can spawn other successful entrepreneurs – through mentorship and investment. When several businesses in a community become successful, the impact is exponential. Rottenberg calls this the “Multiplier Effect” of networks, mentors, and role models, which is what leads to the creation of entrepreneurial ecosystems. And entrepreneurial ecosystems grow economies.
Rottenberg’s organization, Endeavor, has catalyzed cultures of innovation and investment around the world. In “Building Entrepreneurial Ecosystems,” Rottenberg reveals Endeavor’s secret sauce, which caused a boom in the tech sectors of Argentina, Brazil, Turkey, and others, and the keys to replicating the Silicon Valley magic on a global level or right here in the United States.
