Why you should book Victoria Pelletier for your next event:
- Victoria’s personal backstory is just a strong reason to book her as her boardroom successes. Pelletier demonstrates how personal struggles certainly don’t have to stop us from succeeding.

At the young age of 24, Victoria made the choice that she would be a leader. Following a childhood filled with abuse and violence and sexual assaults; Pelletier rose up and never allowed any of it to hold her back. It was through successful networking and strategising that Victoria can now say she became COO of an international corporation at 24 and has since enjoyed a career filled with many successful appointments. Her energy has now turned towards inspiring the next generation of business leaders, delivering powerful and engaging keynote speeches on living life without excuses, diversity in the corporate world and women’s empowerment.
Companies including AON and IBM have appointed Victoria Pelletier into senior roles, trusting her with high-profile positions and allowing her unique brand of leadership and promoting inclusion within business to shine through and accelerate their businesses. Through her keynotes, Victoria teaches us that we can have all we want; we simply need to work towards it and proceed through life without finding any excuse not to do whatever it takes. Pelletier also demonstrates how diversity and inclusion cannot be achieved without each other. It’s all well and good to have diversity in the board room, but if all of those voices aren’t being truly listened to and valued then the point has been missed.
