What Great Leaders Say About Fawn Germer...

Keynote speaker Fawn Germer reaches inside of you and finds your best

Leadership speaker Fawn Germer's motto is "Fall down seven times, get up eight." Great message, especially when she tripped and fell onstage while doing a keynote for NASA.

The audience gasped, but Fawn got back up, then held her hand up to her audience and said, "Wait! You like me better because I tripped."

The audience roared because it was true.

"We all trip up. It's refreshing when someone admits life isn't perfect, it's tough – but it is really an exhilarating adventure if you open up to it," Fawn says. "It is inspiring to see that you can be 100 percent real and make it."

Fawn is not one of those phony motivational speakers whose only qualification is that he or she is motivated. Fawn has four Pulitzer Prize nominations and has interviewed our most powerful and accomplished leaders for her eight best-selling books, including the Oprah book, Hard Won Wisdom.

As an author, she's inspired the masses to stop beating themselves up and start taking risks. As a keynote speaker, she's pushed hundreds of thousands of people to stop wasting time on things that don't ultimately matter and instead dare to live. Fawn is an unstoppable force in the competitive speaker market and is one of three women in the top 30 speakers on the revered "Guru List" of great leadership speakers. Fawn says there are many more than three great women speakers out there, but she is still glad to be on the list.

"There is no special DNA for success or leadership," she says. "It's all about courage. Stop doubting yourself and take some risks. It's not going to kill you."

Fawn headlined as a keynote speaker and leadership speaker around the world — all through the U.S., across China and Taiwan, to Spain, UAE and India. Leaders, entrepreneurs, business owners and women in leadership know that Fawn blows away their excuses and gets them to act.

"Excuses don't count," she says. "Results do. Take risks, bet on yourself and expect obstacles. You'll get where you need to go, but not according to plan. You never know how close you are to turning the corner until you turn the corner."

Her client list says everything about the power of her message. A favorite of Fortune 500 and organizations everywhere, this is one motivational speaker who is always the event favorite.

If you have not heard Fawn's message, get ready. There is no one like her.
