Fawn Germer is the best-selling author and global leadership speaker who has interviewed the most accomplished women of our times – everyone from Hillary Clinton and Jane Goodall to legends like Susan Sarandon, Martina Navratilova, Carly Fiorina, Nobel Peace Prize winners, Academy Award Winners, Olympic athletes, CEOs, prime ministers and world presidents. She is the best-selling author of seven books and a four-time, Pulitzer-nominated journalist. Fawn is a veteran investigative reporter who wrote for The Washington Post and U.S. News and World Report and The Miami Herald. When she went into management as an editor, she struggled mightily as a female manager in a male-dominated environment. She sought the mentoring wisdom that led to her first book, Hard Won Wisdom. That book was rejected 15 times, but perseverance pushed it to best-seller lists and onto Oprah, where Oprah told the world how “very inspiring” Fawn’s book was. Fawn’s second book, Mustang Sallies, hit best-seller lists within two weeks of its release. Fawn is an international speaker on leadership and performance issues and recently presented at the Harvard Business School’s leadership conference, in China, Taiwan, Spain and throughout corporate America.
