Mallie Rydzik, M.S., is a tornado scientist turned serial online entrepreneur, coach, consultant, speaker, and writer. Mallie’s unique background in science, academia, project management, entrepreneurship, and consulting makes her a powerhouse speaker and advisor. Having presented at multiple conferences domestically and internationally over the past 7 years, she knows how to command a room while both educating and inspiring.

Having left a PhD program after diagnoses of obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression, and binge eating disorder led her to rediscover the meaning of work, Mallie’s career mission is to change the way the world works. She is living that vision daily through her thought leadership as a CEO, consultant, speaker, and writer.

Mallie is a published, peer-reviewed scientist in tornado research, has spoken at international conferences, and has been published or featured in new and traditional press, including Hack The Entrepreneur, USA Today, Brazen Careerist, The Chelsea Krost Radio Show, and many others. She has one upcoming book: The Creative CEO Revolution, a manifesto for the future of work.

Creative CEOs

The Creative CEO Revolution:

How Creatives Are Thriving In A Post-Recession Economy

In her signature talk, Mallie recaps the big-picture forces that have driven the sharp increase in freelance workers since the Great Recession, then shows how the next revolution is taking place: one in which freelancers are building out scaled, bootstrapped creative companies.

Learn about the challenges and benefits of creative entrepreneurs becoming Creative CEOs, including a breakdown of Mallie’s signature Creative CEO Framework for small business owners looking to step into a bigger role in their own companies:

  1. Mindset
  2. Positioning
  3. Packaging
  4. Promotion
  5. Integration

This program can be presented as a 15-minute Ted-style talk, a 1-hour keynote, or an interactive half- or full-day workshop. Written materials and copies of the book are available for 2017 bookings. Please contact Mallie with additional ideas and adaptations.

Inspiring and motivating! I had the pleasure of co-hosting the You’ve Got This Online Summit and Mallie was one of our speakers. We left the Summit inspired and ready to challenge ourselves to do greater things which Mallie contributed to significantly. Her knowledge, experience and curiosity for life is clearly demonstrated by her presentation. I will attend Mallie’s speaking engagements every chance I get!
