2014SGilbertJillJill Gilbert is a relationship alchemist. Through each event she crafts, she blends the most expert speakers, thought-provoking themes, forward-leaning trends and vibrant venues – along with the smartest participants – and stirs briskly. The result is a unique and mighty brew of ideas, imagination, innovation and creativity, not to mention a healthy yield of rewarding new business friendships.

Jill’s mantle as catalyst-in-chief is well earned. Her list of credits ranges from speaker, publisher and Silicon Valley entrepreneur to Hollywood producer to producing breakthrough industry conferences. Her most recent accomplishments including producing the Digital Health Summit and Silvers Summit, the acclaimed adjuncts to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that showcase technologies and trends reshaping the worlds of healthcare, wellness and living a thriving life. Her Digital Health Summer Summit in San Diego, which premiered in 2012, got rave reviews and will be expanded in 2013.

Jill’s earlier roles include serving as e-commerce VP at Caring.com and co-founder and CEO of Gilbert Guide, the first national directory and advice source on senior living. She also was in feature film development and production at Columbia Pictures, Disney, MGM and Love Spell Entertainment.

When she’s not mixing people and ideas, Jill enjoys a quiet glass of wine and a loud USC Trojans game.
