Jenna Banks is a former Director of Business Development turned public speaker, emcee, moderator, host of The Jenna Banks Show, best-selling author and entrepreneur. Her work has been featured in a wide variety of media outlets that include: Forbes, ABC, NBC and Authority Magazine.
Jenna’s debut book titled “I Love Me More: How To Find Happiness and Success Through Self-Love” was released March 8, 2022 on International Women’s Day, quickly becoming an Amazon best-seller.
In her book, Jenna shares her journey from facing inordinate childhood adversity, to becoming a self-made entrepreneur, emphasizing the power of self-love and resilience.
Early in her career, she achieved business success working in Sales & Business Development Leadership roles, partnering with brands that included: Sony Pictures Entertainment, Paramount Pictures, Warner Bros., Hasbro, Mattel, and Lego.
In 2012 she decided to quit her comfortable corporate job, starting a home-based marketing products business with just $400 and a laptop.
While running the company, she simultaneously ramped up a profitable real-estate venture and then later sold that same home-based business for $500,000, right before the onset of the global pandemic.
After selling her company, she went all in on her mission to help inspire and empower others to live to their full potential, through writing, speaking, hosting live events and her show.
In 2022, Jenna graduated from Heroic’s 7-month Public Speaking program, led by the renowned Amy and Michael Port. There she learned how to adapt their trademark, performance-based speaking techniques, catapulting her speaking career to new heights.
Most recently she’s brought her messages of inspiration and empowerment to events and stages that include: cyber security, C-suite executives, women’s leadership, software development and the paytech industry.
When she’s not working, Jenna enjoys collecting art, playing tennis, traveling, reading, hiking, personal growth and development, and staying curious.
