Jillian Mood has been working as an HR Leader for over 11 years, specializing with entertainment companies and the game industry. Along with all things talent, she played a key role in keeping game companies culture exciting and positive and was also a brand ambassador. The last couple years she began getting very involved in the industry by co-founding the very successful Ottawa Game Jam (OJAM), advising and working on game conferences, speaking at large events such as: Montreal International Game Summit (MIGS), Game Connection Paris, Respawn Germany and a keynote at Pocket Gamer Vancouver. She also heavily promotes the game industry to help both studios and the independent developer community grow.
Jillian got to know the IGDA by joining and then becoming the co-chair for her local chapter, IGDA Ottawa, and she is now thrilled to be on the staff working with the largest non-profit association to represent and serve the global game industry.
