Fawn Germer      

Advocate for Women in Leadership, Bestselling Author

The book was propelled by this four-time Pulitzer nominee's ability to connect with live audiences. Shortly after the book was published, tens of thousands of people had grasped her powerful message of possibility. Oprah featured Germer and Hard Won Wisdom on her show and before long, Germer became one of the nation's most sought after motivational speakers and corporate trainers.

Her second book, Mustang Sallies, features interviews with more than 65 astounding female trailblazers, including Hillary Clinton, Susan Sarandon, Ann Richards, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Janet Reno, Martina Navratilova, Arianna Huffington, Erin Brockovich and many, many others. The book takes an in-depth look at how women can find success by being themselves in a world with tremendous amounts of pressure to conform.

This acclaimed investigative reporter has worked as a Florida correspondent for both The Washington Post and U.S. News and World Report. Her distinguished reporting career earned her numerous state and national awards including four Pulitzer Prize nominations and the prestigious Green Eyeshade Award from the Society for Professional Journalists. She has worked as a staff writer for The Miami Herald and Denver's Rocky Mountain News and she has held a position as an editor for The Tampa Tribune. Germer has written for Working Woman, Redbook, Cosmopolitan and the American Journalism Review. In addition, she taught as an adjunct journalism professor for more than 12 years at several universities in Florida and Colorado.

Audiences love Germer because she's "been there." Up, down, winning and losing, she shares stories of creating triumph out of defeat, inspiring others to believe in themselves and take the risks involved in living a bold life. An articulate and passionate speaker, Germer notes that obstacles are inevitable in life, but how we deal with those obstacles is the defining factor of success. Her presentations demonstrate how to mesh critical thinking with creative energy to twist, turn and tweak good ideas into brilliant possibilities.
