Fawn Germer… “Fall down seven times, get up EIGHT.”
Few people have influenced the day-to-day performance of professionals and organizations more than Fawn Germer. The sought-after, bestselling Oprah-featured author, speaker and business consultant is revered for her authenticity and inspiration. She is respected around the world for her groundbreaking work on the leadership and performance dynamics that 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.
She is the bestselling author of eight books — and her newest book, Reset, will be published this spring. Reset shows how to reboot your work-life balance to live a more meaningful, productive life without regrets.
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 individual. She is an animated storyteller who uses compelling and entertaining stories to make the takeaway points that no one forgets.
Fawn once had a boss tell her that she’d never be more than she was at the time – a reporter – and she sure showed him. Fawn is a four-time, Pulitzer-nominated investigative journalist and the author of eight books, including the Oprah pick, Hard Won Wisdom.
Fawn personally interviewed more than 300 of the most accomplished leaders of our times, including Olympic athletes, CEOs, prime ministers, presidents, Academy Award winners and many other trailblazers who shared with her the secrets of true success.
From them, she learned that success is born in risk, and power comes from the self-awareness that disables our doubt and self-esteem issues.
Her first book was rejected by every major publisher in the United States, but Fawn persevered until it was a bestseller. She wrote 29 letters to Oprah and something broke through, with Oprah holding up Hard Won Wisdom and telling the world how “Very inspiring” Fawn’s work was.
She travels the globe with her message of viability, performance and power. In recent months, she keynoted for Harvard, Cisco, Pfizer, Deloitte, Kraft, Coca-Cola, Kimberly Clark, Xerox, Bayer, AIG, PepsiCo, the NCAA, Marathon Petroleum, Hallmark, the Network of Executive Women, the UCLA Anderson School of Business, the Wharton School of Business and many others.
