Leadership Keynote Speaker, Work-Life Balance Expert Fawn Germer… She’s REAL!
It was a long road to center stage for keynote speaker Fawn Germer. After a journalism professor said she’d never get a job doing hard news, Fawn became a nationally acclaimed investigative reporter and was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. Not once or twice but, four times. When every major publisher rejected her first book, she persevered until it was the No. 1 bestseller that Oprah told the world was “very inspiring.”
This inspiring motivational speaker’s motto is the Japanese Proverb, “Fall down seven times, get up EIGHT.”
“Success is all about the obstacles,” says Fawn, who has influenced the day-to-day performance of a generation of business leaders in a way no one else has. She has no pretense. She never hold back, “You have to earn the privilege of doing the work that you love, then set the boundaries to create the life you want to lead. You’ve got one shot in this life. Stop operating on default, take your power and start making the choices that fill your world with purpose and happiness.”
The sought-after, bestselling author of eight books is revered because of her no nonsense approach. She keynotes for major associations and corporations that include Coca-Cola, Kraft, Cisco, NASA, Pfizer, Deloitte, State Farm, Novartis, Motorola, GlaxoSmithKline, PepsiCo, Frito-Lay, Accenture, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Ford Motor Co., Department of Defense, Kimberly Clark, the CIA — and even the Harvard Business School and Wharton School of Business.
She is respected around the world for her groundbreaking work on leadership and performance dynamics. She teach others how to deal with obstacles, then drill down and deliver. Fawn is an expert on change and viability, showing how to turn the stress of a change-driven world into an opportunity to innovate and transform.
More than anything, Fawn is honest and real – so real that her audiences quickly connect with her as if she were speaking personally to each one of them. . She is an animated storyteller who uses compelling and entertaining stories to make takeaway points that no one forgets.
Fawn has personally interviewed more than 300 of the most accomplished women leaders of our times, including Olympic athletes, CEOs, prime ministers, presidents, Academy Award winners and many other trailblazers who shared with her their secrets to true success.
From them, she has learned that success is born in risk, and power comes from the self-awareness that disables our doubt and other self-esteem issues.
