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.

COVID-19 Is Spreading. Time to Expand the Conversation About Prevention

As COVID-19 spreads around the world, work and life as we know it will continue to be seriously disrupted. But based on the news coverage, you might think that the only preventive measures we can take are washing our hands regularly, trying not to touch our face, and avoiding people who are sick. We need to expand the conversation to make room for a crucial aspect of health that has received very little attention: one of the best things we can do to protect ourselves is to proactively strengthen our immune system. In a crisis, committing to building healthy habits becomes even more important.

Thriving From Home in the New Normal

The COVID-19 outbreak affects every aspect of our lives — our health, families, careers, finances, and more — and while everyone is experiencing this moment in their own way, the global scale of the crisis means the impact is universal. This much is clear: everyone is affected. And everyone needs support. There is no blueprint for how we as individuals, teams, and managers should be acting in this new normal. The crisis is still unfolding, but we have an immediate responsibility and opportunity to gain an even deeper understanding of our most important asset: our people.

The Eye of the Hurricane: Leadership in the Age of COVID-19

We are at an inflection point for leaders. But meeting the challenges of navigating the new normal isn’t just about looking out; it’s about looking in. What’s missing from our conversation is how leaders need to show up ready to lead from what is best, wisest, most creative and empathetic in them. If ever there was a moment demanding a new leadership playbook, this is it.

COVID-19 Is Forcing Us to Ask: What Is Truly Essential to Our Life?

If the new normal is to be better than the old one, we must stop living in the shallows and hurting our health and our relationships by striving so relentlessly and breathlessly after success as the world defines it. We have been missing what every philosophical and spiritual tradition tells us — that there is a place of wisdom, peace and strength in each one of us. We need to reacquaint ourselves with it!

The Pandemic Is Accelerating Our Mental Health Crisis

We hear a lot about stockpiles of essential medical equipment and PPEs. But we also need to build our internal stockpiles so that we can build our mental resilience. How are we replenishing our own inner resources? How can we turn away from unhealthy coping behaviors and equip ourselves to come out of the pandemic wiser and more resilient than before? Just as we’ve had to make drastic changes to our lives to stop the spread of the virus, we need to take urgent steps to safeguard our mental health, too.

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.
