Renée La Londe

CEO & Founder

iTalent Digital, Girls Leadership Academy Meetup (GLAM), and MojoHire

I'm the CEO and Founder of three companies. CEO stands for 'Chief Executive Officer', which means I'm the big boss! I make sure all of the people in the company have the resources, support and guidance they need to perform at their very best. iTalent Digital helps big companies with their technology projects and also has a team of software engineers who build specialized software. MojoHire uses artificial intelligence to help companies recruit the very best people to work for them, and to hire these people faster than any other company.

I love working with technology because it allows me to be very creative. I can use technology to solve problems and help people in an unlimited number of ways. Every time I see a problem I think, How can I solve this? And often, it can be solved at least partially through technology. It is great to be able to help so many people!

My companies has offices in the United States, Europe, Asia, and Mexico, so I do a lot of traveling. As I employ a big team of people, I have lots of calls and online meetings with my associates when I can't be there in person. I also spend time with our business clients on the phone, videoconference, or in-person. I also communicate with investors, influencers, and anyone who is involved in some way with my companies. In addition, I spend a lot of time researching and keeping up with the latest trends so I can continue to help these companies adapt as the market evolves.

I learned how to code when I was 13 years old and I loved it! I knew from that moment that I wanted to work in technology. I paid my way through university by coding and creating software for local businesses. Then I worked for big companies like Apple and Cisco. After that, I felt I was ready to start my own technology company!

Lately, I have been learning more and more in the area of artificial intelligence (AI). AI is already part of our everyday lives and it is going to continue to get better at helping people and solving problems. I see myself continuing to advance in the areas of AI and machine learning (ML).

I have a young son. His dad and I love doing fun things with him, including cooking, painting, coding, and lots of other activities. I also like to sail and hang out with friends.

“In a gentle way, you can shake the world.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi I love this quote because it reminds me that I can be gentle and earth-shaking at the same time! I am a very driven person by nature. This quote helps me remember that I can be bold and move mountains — gently!
