Michele Prota is a Global Chief Talent Officer who partners with CEOs, executives and employees to design working environments where people can do the most transformational work of their careers. After spending over a decade working in Talent for multibillion dollar companies, global advertising networks and small tech-led creative shops, Michele knows what drives creativity, employee happiness, business growth and profitability – and it’s not expecting people to work inexhaustibly for anyone anymore. It’s about creating a space where people can be the same person at work that they are with their friends and family on the weekends.
Michele has landed coverage in outlets around the world, including Campaign and The Drum, and has been featured in AdWeek where the parental leave she designed was coined the ‘Gold Standard’ by The 3% Conference. She is a contributing webinar leader for the 4As, quoted in the AEF’s most recent research on classroom education for marketing and media students, and is an active She Runs It Executive Class Member. In addition to her extensive Talent and Human Resources experience, Michele is a certified ATD trainer.
