It is the single most moving lecture I have ever attended.
Lauren Manning shares life-changing lessons on overcoming adversity through the power of courage, determination, the will to keep fighting, and the belief in making every day count.
Lauren is a renowned role model for anyone struggling to find the strength, fortitude or inspiration to surmount personal or professional challenges. A former managing director and partner at Cantor Fitzgerald, Lauren battled against all odds and emerged from the fires of the September 11th terrorist attacks in New York. Chosen by CNN as one of the most intriguing newsmakers of their first 25 years, and named by the president of the United States as the personification of American resilience, her story has been chronicled globally, including her New York Times best-selling memoir, “Unmeasured Strength.”
On stage, Lauren captivates with a profound message of leadership, resilience and will. Tactfully incorporating humor with valuable insight on achieving both personal victories and professional success in the face of unspeakable adversity, Manning inspires us all to recognize our inner strength and power to prevail.
