Event Speakers

Nicole Lapin

No. 1 New York Times Bestselling Author, Money Expert, and Veteran Business News Anchor

Be your own superhero

When she needed a hero most, she had to become her own.

In a world that teaches women to "lean in" to everything and be like Superwoman, Nicole Lapin proves the secret to success is putting your oxygen mask on first, before helping others. After hitting rock bottom, Nicole decided to change her working style and came up with a plan to create boundaries and live a healthier, more sustainable life.

Drawing from her most recent book “Becoming Super Woman,” Nicole will offer actionable tips on how to take better care of yourself, increase your emotional wellness, and work smarter not harder. Backed by first-hand experience, she will detail the rising epidemic of burnout, and explore how to recognize it, reverse it and banish it — for good.

Andrea Jung

President and CEO, Grameen America

Leading a successful business

Passion, compassion, courage, humility, pride, perseverance and impactfulness.

These are the seven qualities of successful leaders that helped Andrea Jung — the longest-tenured female Fortune 500 CEO — more than triple Avon’s profits and transform the organization into THE company for women. From overhauling Avon’s operating model and cost structure, to expanding internationally, improving brand perception and reinventing corporate culture, her presentation will explore how leading a successful business in today’s rapidly-changing, globalized world necessitates command of all seven qualities. Leave informed to succeed where others have failed.

Dr. Andrea Simon

CEO of Simon Associates Management Consultants, Author, and Corporate Anthropologist

Rethink myths — A panel discussion with Vistage members

Drawing from her recent book, “Rethink: Smashing the myths of women in business,” Dr. Andi Simon will delve into the personal stories of three award-winning Vistage members who have proven the myths wrong.

These women from different industries opened up the possibilities for their professional careers and personal lives by being authentic, taking risks and pushing past obstacles others placed before them. Look forward to stories of how women rise, spark innovation, and ignite change.
