Project Description


Dee Ann Turner is a 35-year veteran in identifying, selecting, and growing talent. She has unparalleled insight and experience in talent acquisition, career and leadership development, and organizational culture. Author and speaker, Dee Ann is the former vice president of talent for Chick-fil-A, where she helped shape the company’s historically remarkable culture. In her first Amazon chart-topping book, “It’s My Pleasure: The Impact of Extraordinary Talent and a Compelling Culture,” Dee Ann took readers behind the scenes of Chick-fil-A for explanations and action steps any business could adopt. Her second book, “Bet on Talent: How to Create a Remarkable Culture That Wins the Hearts of Customers,” was named one of the best books to read in 2020 by Harver. It dissects numerous industry-leading organizations’ strategies alongside explanations of Dee Ann’s original approaches to the most crucial decisions in business. Out on March 2, 2021, Dee Ann’s highly anticipated third book, CRUSH YOUR CAREER: ACE THE INTERVIEW, LAND THE JOB, AND LAUNCH YOUR FUTURE, is a guide to understand ourselves and our goals better, demystify the modern job market and workplace, and help us discover personal passion and purpose. An experienced mentor and leader teaching organizations how to find and keep extraordinary talent, she now teaches talent how to be extraordinary. Today, she leads her own organization, Dee Ann Turner & Associates, LLC, where she widely shares her wisdom through speaking opportunities, coaching, and consulting. Dee Ann lives with her husband just outside of Atlanta, Georgia. For more information, please visit
