Speaker Bio for Women’s Leadership Events

Women’s Leadership Speaker Fawn Germer…

“Fall down seven times, get up EIGHT.”

Few people have influenced the day-to-day performance of women 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. 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 seven books including the Oprah pick, Hard Won Wisdom. Fawn 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 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. Her newest book, Reset, shows how to do a self-intervention for a more fulfilling, productive and balanced life.  “Your computer slows waaay down and pushes you to the brink of losing everything. You have no choice but to reboot, and when you do, it comes to life like its brand new. All you did was restart it. We can do that for ourselves, too.” Her recent book, Pearls, brings together the best of the best. The deluxe gift volume includes quotes from her first three books and was a bestseller within two days of its release. It has been her best-selling book yet. 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.
