Hilary Corna is the former Senior Executive Officer for Toyota in Asia, where she managed a team of people across fourteen different countries as a Change Leader for all of the dealerships in Asia. Since returning to America, Hilary has written and published her book, One White Face, a memoir of her time abroad. Since its release, One White Face has been featured in such media as The New York Times, NBC and ForbesWoman, was reviewed as the “GenY version of Eat, Pray, Love”, and is now being adapted into a screenplay. Her bigger goal though, is to have a little girl so she can dress her in Hello Kitty. A portion of all book proceeds go to the Coca Cola Scholars Foundation for underprivileged high school student college scholarships.


Hilary has spoken at TED and she is sponsored in part by Toyota Motor USA. Hilary studied at Kansai Gaidai University in Osaka, Japan and graduated from Elon University in North Carolina. She has been featured in Pearson’s Business Communication college textbook, speaks Japanese and resides in Austin, Texas.
