About Jodi Low

Inspiring Passion in Others

After nearly 20 years as a business development and marketing professional, I made the decision to follow my avidity for leadership training and launched U & Improved in 2008. Now an award-winning personal and professional development company, U & Improved has an overriding mission of providing sustainable and purposeful leadership skills that tie directly to increased profitability, staff loyalty and retention, and a corporate culture that empowers emerging leaders and attracts new talent. We give our clients tangible tools to improve internal collaboration and communication in a way that results in loyalty, trust and a culture of coaction where every person feels valued and contributes as a leader.

One of the most fulfilling aspects of my career is keynote speaking. Connecting with an audience and inspiring them to re-evaluate their direction and look at themselves through a different lense feeds my personal passion. What sets me apart as a motivational speaker is that I focus on insights and tools necessary to take actionable steps toward creating the career and home life people want and deserve. My connection with people is what ultimately drives me to do what I do! 

Outside of my professional life, I love spending time with my two daughters. I have raised them solely since they were 1 and 3 years old, so our time together is by far my favorite activity of all. Additionally I love to travel, (especially to Europe), read self-development books, go to the movies, shop—anything that allows me to grow, learn and be around other people!
