Speaker:

Jeff Miller is the CEO & Founder of Potentia Workforce, a consulting firm that helps organizations to improve recruiting and retention metrics by leveraging the talents of skilled, yet often overlooked neurodiverse individuals.

Jeff is an executive with more than 25 years of experience leading high-performance organizations that provide innovative solutions to the communities they serve. He has launched and led businesses in the twenty largest markets in North America and across four continents.

Prior to founding Potentia, Jeff was President of a global workforce services firm – delivering record profits while closing four acquisitions in less than eighteen months. Earlier in his career, he was Division President for a healthcare consultancy, taking the firm from start-up to a successful sale in three years. Jeff began his career for a Boston-based staffing and consulting firm where he opened and built their West Coast operations from Silicon Valley.

After his son was diagnosed on the autism spectrum, Jeff began a deep exploration into neurodiversity which ultimately led to the formation of Potentia – combining multiple passions to bring innovation to business internationally and opportunity to the remarkable and often underemployed, neurodiverse community.

Jeff is a sought-after thought leader and has appeared numerous times on television, at conferences, and online – sharing his experiences on leadership, neurodiversity, and finding your purpose. He also serves on the Board of Trustees of Gateway Academy, a Houston-area High School for students with learning differences.

A graduate of Williams College, Jeff lives in the Houston area with his wife Samantha, and awesomely cool son, Charlie.
