“The human brain is the driver of every single aspect of business and leadership—and Dr. Jill’s expertise has already helped millions better understand themselves and their teams. I know she’ll inspire Yellowship attendees to learn and win in 2018 and beyond.” —Max Yoder, Lessonly CEO and Co-founder

Lessonly, the leader in online training software, today announced Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor as a keynote speaker at their inaugural conference, Yellowship. Yellowship takes place in Indianapolis April 17-19, 2018 and is designed to help business executives and their teams learn together and win together.

Dr. Bolte Taylor is a Harvard-trained neuroanatomist who, after experiencing a severe hemorrhage in the left hemisphere of her brain, went on to write the New York Times bestselling memoir "My Stroke of Insight". In 2008, Dr. Jill’s presentation at the TED Conference in Monterey, CA went viral, amassing more than 20 million views and catapulting her onto TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World list.

“We’re ecstatic to welcome Dr. Jill to the Yellowship keynote stage,” said Max Yoder, Lessonly’s CEO and Co-founder. “The human brain is the driver of every single aspect of business and leadership—and Dr. Jill’s expertise has already helped millions better understand themselves and their teams. I know she’ll inspire Yellowship attendees to learn and win in 2018 and beyond.”
