Fawn began her career as a journalist but eventually ran into a boss who told her she’d never amount to any more than what she was right then: a reporter.

Her trademark is that she is the only leadership speaker and motivational speaker who has interviewed hundreds of the most visible, accomplished leaders of our times. In the decade since she left journalism, she has written seven books — six nonfiction books on leadership and one popular novel. Her first book was rejected everywhere, but became a bestseller and then an Oprah book. Oprah called it “very inspiring.”

She’s been a speaker at the Harvard Business School’s leadership conference, did a speaking tour of Asia, and presented for major companies all over the world. She’s been the keynote speaker for scores of Fortune 500 companies at their leadership conferences.

Her recent speaking and conference clients include: Coca-Cola, Ford Motor Co., Kraft, Cisco, Novartis, PepsiCo, ADP, the CIA, NASA, Boeing, Motorola, Brown Forman, Genworth, State Farm Insurance, the U.S. Department of Defense, State Street Financial and many, many others.

She’s one of the nation’s most sought-after women’s leadership speakers, and is active in promoting women in leadership around the world.
