Become the BADASS BABE you were meant to be... Buy THE BIG LIFE

Speaking

How To Get The Big Life—On Your Own Terms

The Itch: How to use that nagging feeling that there’s something better out there to keep you moving forward toward your Big Life.

As editor-in-chief of Seventeen for the better part of a decade, I have spent my career championing young women. I have unique understanding of how a new generation of young women are redefining power and success.

I’ve also hosted dozens of dinners at my home and for women’s groups across the country for the last three years, where I listened to what young women want in their lives and careers—and what they don’t want.

Invite Me to Speak, Host a Panel, or Lead a Dinner at Your Organization. Sample topics include:

  • Millennials: How To Build Your Big Life—Starting Now!
  • Women’s Leadership: What We Can All Learn from Millennial Women About Work and Life (Soon to be a Tedx Talk Fall 2017)
  • Work/Life Balance: It’s a Sham! Why You Need To Embrace The Mess
  • Media and Marketing Trends: How to Reach Millennial Women Now
  • Employee Happiness and Loyalty: How To Make Your Employees Happier, More Engaged, and Deeply Loyal

Speeches & Endorsements

“Ann brings great authority and energy to the stage. She leaves the audience smarter, stronger and inspired by their own possibility.”

Claudia Chan, CEO and Founder of S.H.E. Global Media Inc. and S.H.E. Summit

“Ann is one of the leading experts on millennial women and the changes afoot in media. But what makes her stand out as a speaker is her ability to connect with her audience–at any age—and tailor the message so it addresses their challenges and fears and propels them to the next level.”

Maria Ungaro, Executive Director of New York Women in Communication

Ann’s energy and authentic, experience-derived advice, electrified the audience. She was the perfect speaker to kick start our WE Women conference. And after her address, Ann’s engaged participation in the rest of the day’s events reinforced her strength as a speaker who truly listens, understands, and inspires millennial women.”

Chloe Siamof, Yale Women’s Leadership Initiative Co-Chair

Partnering with Ann for an intimate dinner with World of Hyatt members was inspiring and engaging. Our guests really enjoyed connecting with one another through conversations. We know that when people come together, they’re able to understand one another, collaborate to do incredible things. Kudos to Ann for helping bring this spirit to life at our event!”
