Keynote Speakers

Josh Linkner

Venture Capitalist, Mentor

At Staffing World, Linkner will present a fascinating look at the risks staffing companies face when they rely on the past to determine the future. He’ll also discuss valuable tools and techniques for fostering innovation, creativity, and disruption within your organization.

Executing Imagination: Turning Raw Ideas Into Powerful Results
Drawing inspiration from the unlikely world of hackers, New York Times bestselling author and tech entrepreneur Josh Linkner has discovered a new and powerful model for leadership and organizational success, outlined in his new book Hacking Innovation. This opening keynote session will help you navigate intense competitive pressures with the mind-numbing speed that is required in your daily decision making. As you seek fresh approaches for growth and innovation, join Linkner in throwing out old, commoditized techniques and employing novel practices adapted from hackers. Despite their illicit motives, cybercriminals are some of the most creative people on the planet. Linkner will show you how to flip some of their hacking techniques upside down. Using tools from his “Five Core Mindsets” and “Ten Primary Tactics of Hackers,” learn to drive legitimate business outcomes and substantial growth in your firm. Qualifies for 1.0 CE hour.

Linkner is an authority on fostering creativity, entrepreneurship, and disruptive innovation. An avid venture capitalist and mentor, Linkner has invested in more than 100 start-ups and twice has been named Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year. 

Jonathan Mildenhall

Business Executive, Brand Ambassador

At Staffing World, Mildenhall will share his creative insights and Airbnb experiences, and inspire you to think differently about your business to maximize success and profitability.

Work That Matters
Mildenhall was content working as Coca Cola’s chief marketer when the Airbnb chief executive officer called to offer him the top marketing position at the yet-unproven online marketplace and hospitality service. Mildenhall was reluctant to leave Coca Cola, arguably one of the greatest storytellers and most visible brands in the world. He ultimately made the move, determined to craft an Airbnb brand narrative that aspires to a higher purpose than merely selling a product or service. In this general keynote session, Staffing World attendees can translate his lessons on personal, positive customer experiences into novel ways to engage candidates and clients—creating long-term relationships and repeat business. Mildenhall will inspire you to experiment fearlessly, build and sustain brand loyalty, and create inclusive environments that differentiate your firm from those that simply accept the status quo. Qualifies for 1.0 CE hour.

Mildenhall is a world-renowned business executive and brand ambassador who has propelled profits at Airbnb. Mildenhall is also well known for his creative work when he was with the Coca-Cola Co., when his “Open Happiness” campaign became the company’s most awarded marketing platform in its history. Since 2014, Mildenall has been with Airbnb, where he says he has never worked harder, never worked smarter, and never felt more creative in his life.

Mark Schulman


Conquering Life’s Stage Fright: Three Steps to Top Performance
Join Schulman as he demonstrates through stories and rhythm how all individual and team performances are broken down into three simple, powerful steps: clarity, capability, and confidence. With a musical backdrop, Schulman weaves these steps into lessons about individual talent development and teambuilding. Hear his fascinating take on “design thinking” that will reveal how to decode the chemical balance between fear and excitement, prompting you to take charge during a presentation, client conversation, sales call, or candidate interview. Harmony among band members is analogous to harmony among sales, recruiting, and leadership teams. Join Schulman for a shift in thinking, turning perceived obligations into exciting opportunities that increase team production. Qualifies for 1.0 CE hour.

Schulman has enjoyed an unprecedented career as a first-call drummer for world-class rock and pop artists, including P!nk, Cher, Foreigner, Sheryl Crow, Stevie Nicks, Destiny’s Child, and Billy Idol. Schulman is also an educator—he has taught at the Los Angeles Music Academy and hosted drum clinics worldwide. He also serves as board chairman for Create Now!, a nonprofit organization that aims to help at-risk children through creative arts mentoring. Schulman has packaged these inspiring experiences to author Conquering Life’s Stage Fright and to arm the audiences he speaks to with three steps, or strategies, that he says are essential to break-through moments—whether in life or in business.
