About the Speaker

As the founder of Brave Women Project and the working mother of two small kids, Holly refuses to take herself seriously. However, she takes the work of building up a company, leading a non-profit, and serving in a leadership position at a university very seriously. For some of us, multitasking is just another form of masking. And Holly is committed to removing the mask.

Holly McIlwain, MS serves as Director of Human Resource Services for Franciscan University, helping the university to take a strategic approach to hiring and employee relations. Holly is an expert in the value of dynamic and ongoing training as part of the foundation for fully engaged employees. With 15 years of experience in organizational management and leadership development for one of the largest nonprofits in the world, recruiting and developing the talent pool for the non-profit sector soon led her to engage as a full-time consultant, and director of leadership development and talent acquisition for a Pittsburgh firm. Additionally, Holly leads the Talent Development platform at Winner Partners, a retained executive search firm. She is a subject-matter expert in the usage of behavior assessments as part of coaching and development plans, in addition to talent acquisition engagements. As a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach, working with individuals and organizations to build a better world and sustainable business solutions is her passion. What’s not exciting about that? This enthusiasm comes with Holly into each coaching session, team workshop, search opportunity, university project, and speaking engagement.

With an advanced degree in Organizational Leadership from Robert Morris University, and as a certified DISC Behavior Analyst and Driving Forces Behavior Analyst, she serves on the faculty for Pittsburgh Leadership Foundation. Holly created her own high-impact not for profit to engage even more organizations through the people who lead them. She is the author of “For She Who Leads: Practical Wisdom from a Woman Who Serves”. She and her husband, Kevin, are raising two young boys and residing in the greater Pittsburgh, PA area.
