About Jane McConnell


From Nebraska to Provence

Born in Nebraska, young days in Arizona, university in California, and professional life in France for several decades. I now live in Provence, minutes away from the Roman Pont du Gard. The dignity and timelessness of the site are a constant reminder of the balance we all need between the past and the present.



Over 20 years front line advising

I have over 20 years of experience of front line advising on internal digital strategies for a wide range of organizations: industrial, retail, service, energy and transport, as well as United Nations agencies including the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and the UN Peacekeeping Operations. This strategic work was focused on people, behaviors and leadership.

The Gig Mindset Advantage, A Bold New Breed

As of 2018, data from the previous 10 years led me to focus on the “gig mindset” inside organizations. The result: the book The Gig Mindset Advantage ‑ A Bold New Breed,  followed by the podcast Bold New Breed and the newsletters Inside Outsider on LinkedIn and Gig Mindsetters on Substack.
