About Julie Benezet

Julie Benezet has devoted her working life to exploring the new, building businesses and helping others do the same. She developed Amazon’s first global real estate organization, negotiated major financing deals, and founded several successful businesses.

She now consults, writes, and speaks on leading and succeeding in the 21st Century and decoding human behavior in the face of change.

Julie’s recently released book, The Journey of Not Knowing: How 21st Century Leaders Can Chart a Course Where There Is None, advocates a new approach to leadership that embraces the scariness of the unknown as a source of inspiration rather than an obstacle to building a better future.   Read More »
