Her presentation is heavily researched as she studied the neurodevelopment of the brain to find treatment options for her son, who had autism and severe mental illness. Anne was then diagnosed with an avocado-sized tumor in her salivary gland in 2014 so she had to use her tools herself as she went through her health challenges.
Anne has a master’s degree in organizational communication and so she can show others how to break out of reactivity to live with a purpose. She is a recognized leading expert in the fields of leadership, resilience and communication by Harvard Business Review, Entrepreneur, Inc, Fast Company, Fox Business, and CNN.
Her presentation offers plenty of truth bombs among her funny and inspirational passages. She connects with the audience, shares inspiring stories along with researched content to implement tools to real life.
Ann authored 52 Strategies for Life, Love & Work: Transforming Your Life One Week at a Time and its best-selling follow-up book, Strong Enough.
Her newest book, Mind Over Moment: Harness the Power of Resilience and the companion journal, delivers a collection of actionable takeaways to handle the modern, challenging world. A portion of all her book proceeds go to the National Alliance on Mental Illness Central Texas (NAMI).

LEADING THROUGH INFLUENCE: Maximize Performance and Potential
Learn research-based, bold strategies to improve relationships. Leadership is the art of positively influencing the attitudes, behaviors, and skills of others.

Rather than react to problems, great leaders develop strategies to proactively minimize them.
FAIL FASTER: Building Resilient Leaders!
Agility, grit, and resilience are the new leadership currency. Have you ever thought about all the massively successful products, creations and innovations we enjoy today because their inventors/creators were able to consistently bounce back and overcome failure?
Failure is a hot topic in the business world today. That’s because we are starting to recognize that failure is information, and it comes with valuable lessons, if we can shift our viewpoint to see and embrace them.
BALANCE IS BULL$#@!: Defining Priorities To Find Peace Of Mind
With all the discussion about how to achieve work-life balance, we have overlooked a big problem with this idea: our lives are not supposed to be balanced with equal time for everything. When every priority claims itself as the most urgent, and there always seems to be more to do than time to do it, maintaining focus on your top priorities can be difficult.
Can you be the executive who thrives at business, the parent who volunteers at their child’s school, the friend who maintains an active social life, and yet still remain fit and fun? Maybe for a short time, but it certainly isn’t sustainable.
There is really no such thing as work-life balance. It’s BULL$#@! and we are making ourselves crazy trying to find it amidst the overload of information that characterizes life today.
