Margie Warrell
Best Selling Author
Expert on Courage

In honor of Women’s History Month, WELD’s annual Keynote event brings nationally known speakers and leaders to Columbus to advance the dialogue around women’s issues, challenges, and opportunities.

WELD is excited to announce that Margie Warrell, best-selling author and expert on courage, will be our 2017 Keynote Speaker! A leader in the human potential movement, Margie Warrell is a passionate advocate for the unique potential of every person. She empowers people—and the organizations they work for— to engage in more courageous conversations, expand their vision of what’s possible and to live and lead more boldly. In her latest book, Brave: 50 Everyday Acts of Courage to Thrive in Work, Love and Life (2015) Warrell guides readers to move past the fears, doubts and beliefs that keep them from making the changes and taking chances they need to enjoy the fulfillment and success they desire. The best-selling author of Find Your Courage: 12 Acts for Becoming Fearless in Work and in Life (McGraw-Hill, 2009), Warrell is a sought-after media guest who has appeared on NBC’s Today, FOX News and CNBC.

Ms. Warrell will deliver a keynote focused on the theme Earned It. Own It. Women have achieved success and they need to own it and not fall victim to the “imposter syndrome.” You’ve earned your seat at the table, now own it with unabashed confidence. In particular, the Keynote will cover these items:

  • Why you must own your value and how to ask for it
  • How to cultivate grace and grit
  • How to cultivate your own ‘presence’ so you can own the room and 'be seen'

Join WELD at our Keynote as we launch our programming theme for 2017 on Earned It. Own It. WELD will base its 2017 programs on helping women embrace the success that they have earned, learn how to ask for their value and exert their influence to help themselves and others propel their businesses and careers forward.
