Jenny Reilly guides C-Suite executives to thrive, while transforming and improving their businesses. With over 25 years of human resource and executive development experience, she coaches, trains and mentors senior professionals.
For nearly two decades, Jenny led the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Applied Science professional development programs. Her work included masterminding new categories of advanced degree programs — the Master of Engineering Leadership, and Master of Health Leadership and Policy. She led the largest Engineering co-op program in Western Canada. On the global front, she launched a new international exchange program and led the Canada-Japan Co-Op Program.
