Robin Meade      

Host of HLN's Morning Express, Singer-Songwriter, New York Times Best-Selling Author

As one of America's most popular and versatile broadcast journalists, Robin Meade has given a memorable voice to recent history's pivotal events and pop culture's most spectacular moments. The host of HLN's Morning Express with Robin Meade, she has anchored coverage on everything from the War on Terror to President Obama's inauguration to Michael Jackson's memorial; she has even skydived with George H.W. Bush.

Morning Express, and Meade's work as co-host with Dr. Sanjay Gupta on Turner Private Network's AccentHealth, is the culmination of a decorated and diverse career in broadcasting. During her tenure with NBC Chicago affiliate WMAQ-TV, prior to joining CNN, she covered the 1996 Olympics including special reporting on the Centennial Olympic Park bombing. Her career has been highlighted by a local Emmy Award and election to the Ohio Broadcasters Hall of Fame.

However, Meade's phenomenal success was not achieved easily. Throughout her career, she dealt with deep anxiety attacks that often caused dizziness and jagged breathing. Successfully conquering her issues with anxiety, she now shares her personal story and coping strategies in her bestseller, Morning Sunshine! How to Radiate Confidence and Feel it Too.

A strong and confident role model for young women and aspiring journalists, Meade's charm and passion radiate throughout her stimulating keynote presentations. Drawing on her own experiences and those of women who have achieved breakthrough success, Meade educates audiences on improving self-esteem and navigating the stresses of careers and relationships. She remains a graceful guiding force for 21st century women.

Speech Topics

Self-Confidence vs. Self-Esteem

We all have reasons to feel good about our abilities. However, somewhere along the way we tell ourselves little lies that eventually become our story, such as “I can't do math,” “I'm not successful,” or “I will never have money.”

None of this has to be true. If you do an honest self-appraisal you will find all kinds of reasons to feel good about yourself and your abilities. Meade describes the “shapeshifting” she went through to win over others, how she slowly lost her self-image, and how she eventually experienced panic attacks on-air. She outlines how she was able to think her way back to self-esteem by doing a deep self assessment, and guides the audience through one as well.

Frenemies: Fielding Criticism from Friends Who Are Really Enemies

What is a “frenemy?” How do you identify one at work or in your personal life? Meade shares stories of the impact frenemies have had in her own life. She imparts a fascinating point: when a person criticizes you, it is the result of their own self-esteem and usually has nothing to do with you. A liberating dialogue, especially for teens and young women, this presentation includes tidbits on how to use a frenemy relationship for your own benefit.

"No!" is a Complete Sentence (and Other Ways to Balance Your Life)

Relating her personal experience of all work and no play, which helped lead to debilitating panic attacks, Meade guides the audience through tips to win over peers at work without alienating your true self and your life outside your career. This valuable presentation includes advice about setting boundaries while still being a team player and goal-oriented person.

Breakthrough Women

Presenting the compelling stories of the everyday women who came before us and broke barriers for the next generation, Meade examines what each seemed to have in common, asking “are we breakthrough women for the next generation?” If not, what's stopping us from being breakthrough women?

Mixing the stories of modern women such as the first female racecar driver and the first female war correspondent, as nominated by viewers of Meade’s Breakthrough Women series on HLN, with well-known female figures from American history, this engaging, multimedia presentation incorporates video, sound bytes, pictures and slides.
