At the forefront of one of the world's most successful news site and a key figure in the current communications revolution, Arianna Huffington discusses the new media, politics, the economy and lessons she has learned on the road to success.

Arianna Huffington is among the most influential players shaping the national conversation on politics, the economy, the media and public policy. The New York Times recently said of Huffington – “Arianna Huffington did more than anyone else to invent the Internet news business. After a decade...she is still setting the pace." An entrepreneur and business leader, Huffington provides an informed view on the state of the current business landscape and the impact of our financial policy on the future of the economy. Her access to Washington’s key decision makers, as well as global and business leaders, allows her to provide a fresh and in-the-know perspective on today’s current events, culture and politics. Celebrated for her work as the co-founder and editor-in-chief of the must-read Huffington Post, which in 2012 won its first Pulitzer Prize, Huffington has garnered worldwide acclaim, including being named in 2011 to the TIME 100, the magazine’s annual list of the most influential people in the world; Vanity Fair’s 2011 Powers That Be list; Fast Company’s list of the 100 Most Creative People in Business; Financial Times’ 50 Faces That Shaped the Decade; Newsweek’s Top Ten Thought Leaders of the Decade; and Forbes’ Most Influential Women in the Media (2012) and The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women (2012, 2013 and 2015). She is the author of over a dozen books, including Third World America: How Our Politicians Are Abandoning the Middle Class and Betraying the American Dream (2010). Her book, Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder (March, 2014), debuted at #1 on The New York Times best seller list and follows up on the success of her acclaimed Third Metric conference, offering women (and men) a new definition of success, one that focused not only on career advancement, but on the equally important goals of health and wellbeing, personal fulfillment, giving back and living a life of purpose and meaning.

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

Can you achieve true success through a relentless race to the top at the exclusion of all else? Arianna Huffington 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.

The Brave New World of the "New Media": How Social Media Has Revolutionized the Communications Landscape

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.

The Sleep Revolution

In an increasingly fast-paced and hyper-connected world, sleep deprivation has become a global epidemic, with devastating effects on our health, our performance and our relationships. In this talk, Arianna Huffington—New York Times best-selling author and president and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group—offers a sweeping exploration of sleep, from its rich history to the latest science, with an emphasis on how it can transform our lives. Through personal stories and specific, science-backed tips and recommendations, Huffington addresses the most critical issues with her audience: why we sleep, why we need it, what happens when we don’t get enough, and how to get more, so we can take control of our lives and live more fully.
