As the CEO of Chat With Leaders Media and Executive Partner at People-First Elevation Team, I lead a dedicated team specializing in thought leadership development, stakeholder engagement, and effective global communication. We excel in producing corporate podcasts, meetings, and events to drive customer and team member acquisition, retention, and engagement. Additionally, we provide speaker coaching to empower thought leaders within our clients' organizations.

My approach is grounded in Conscious Capitalism, fostering leaders with a values-driven, pro-capitalism perspective. I firmly believe in business's transformative power, not only as a commercial venture but as a catalyst for lasting social and generational impact.

Beyond my professional role, I cherish my most significant leadership role as a father to three children, alongside my wife Katie. This personal aspect deeply influences my professional path, aligning my business strategies with family values, faith, and community service in Atlanta, GA.

Glynis Lee serves as the Vice President of Inclusion, Community, and HR Technology, responsible for accelerating and actuating a world-class inclusive culture at Infor, LLC.  With her deep background in technology transformation, program, and project management – she has been able to inject an action-oriented approach to inclusion and community, focusing on systemic process transformation to interrupt bias and infuse inclusive behavior as a natural and organic component of the company culture.

Glynis’ career spans over 20 in leading complex IT service delivery organizations and overseeing strategic technology transformation efforts in private, government, and academic, and global organizations.  She has focused on the selection, implementation, and management of ERP systems supporting back-office operations, particularly in Human Resources and Finance.  She transitioned to an HR leadership role several years ago, leveraging technology to facilitate cultural transformation.  

A graduate of Rutgers University with a BS in Business Economics, and an MBA in Management Information Systems, she holds her PMP certification, and certificates in Executive Leadership, High-Performance Leadership, and Diversity & Inclusion from Cornell University.

A native of New Jersey, Glynis now lives outside Atlanta, GA with her husband, 2 children, and granddaughter.
