Founder & CEO, Mindset Digital
Debra Jasper, Ph.D, Founder & CEO of Mindset Digital, is a passionate presenter and storyteller—whether online and in person. She and business partner, Betsy Hubbard, have provided consulting to more than 30,000 individuals from Ukraine to Sweden. As the 2012 national keynote speakers for KeyBank, she and Hubbard gave talks to thousands of business leaders in 17 cities across the United States. Jasper’s speaking career stretches internationally, as she has likewise given keynotes to the Ukrainian Council of Ministers in Kiev and the Nordic Media Festival in Bergen.
Before launching Mindset Digital, Jasper spent seven years directing the Kiplinger Program in Public Affairs Journalism at Ohio State, where she helped to launch the first social media fellowship for journalists in the nation—showing reporters from CNN, 60 Minutes, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times and other top newsrooms how to tell powerful stories on modern mediums like social networks. She has also taught graduate courses on the impact of digital media on public affairs at the John Glenn School of Public Affairs.
