  • Redefining Success: The Third Metric That Can Benefit Your Bottom Line

    View Speech Info

    Can you achieve true success through a relentless race to the top at the exclusion of all else? Arianna Huffington—president and editor-in-chief, Huffington Post Media Group—makes a compelling case for a different approach. By redefining success beyond money and power, she urges audiences to consider a third metric in measuring success—one which is “based on well-being, health, our ability to unplug and recharge and renew ourselves, and to find joy in both our job and the rest of our life.” Mounting evidence, both scientific and anecdotal, confirms that the practices that make us less stressed also make us more productive, and Huffington provides clear examples of how this is not only good for families' and employees’ health, but also good for a company’s bottom line. Even though the current male-dominated model of success isn’t working for either gender, Huffington acknowledges that women must lead the charge in changing the current ethos. Eloquent and engaging, Huffington shares how ‘leaning back’ makes for wiser leaders and how ultimately, success is not just about money or position, but about living the life you want—not just the life for which you settle.

    View Speech Info

    The tech advances of the last few years have turned the news and entertainment worlds on their ears, shifting the balance of power away from the media giants and to consumers—and citizens—empowering them to choose and create. Technology is having the same game-changing effect on the political world. In this lively presentation, Huffington, described by Fortune as one of the few people who “get” the Internet, discusses the latest online and social media trends—including how media companies are turning content promiscuity into profits—and reveals her vision of a hybrid future where traditional media and new media become one.

    In this presentation based on her book, Third World America, Huffington addresses how middle-class Americans are quickly becoming an endangered species and why the American Dream of a secure, comfortable standard of living and a better life for our children has become as out­dated as an Edsel with an eight-track player. Delivering both a wake-up call and a detailed road map to recovery, Huffington offers the specific steps we need to take—as individuals, as families and as a country—to help prevent America from turning into a Third World Nation, while putting us back on the path to becoming the “more perfect union” our founding fathers envisioned.
