Patricia Sellers Speaking Topics

  • On Women and Leadership

    Women leaders tend to think about power horizontallyand manage that way too. Having spent the past 15 years studying women leadersand building Most Powerful Women into Fortunes second-biggest brand, after the Fortune 500Pattie Sellers has gained unparalleled access to Americas top women leaders and has keen insights into what makes women successful (and not) in business, philanthropy, government and beyond. Her views are provocative and can be controversial: The concept of the glass ceiling is overplayed, she believes, and women hold themselves back by feeling uncomfortable with power. Wise women leaders embrace powerin different ways than most men do.

  • A View from the Boardroom: How Great Leaders Lead

    Entrepreneurs drive economic recoveryand women are key. While Sellers has spent most of her 26 years at Fortune writing about leaders of large companies, her purview is much broader. She has written definitive (and exclusive) cover stories on world-changing entrepreneurs and leaders from across the business spectrum. Sellers talks about the common traits of outstanding business-builders and also explores stories of prominent people who have discovered fresh passion to start new lives after their careers in business.

  • Beyond the Corporate Ladder: New Career Paradigms for Changing Times

    The most successful people think of their careers as jungle gyms, where the rewards come from moving in all directions and not just up. Sounds scary, but particularly in this fast-changing and unpredictable world, you should not think of your career as just climbing a ladder. More than ever, you need peripheral vision and the ability to think broadly. An expert on the traits needed to navigate a successful career, Pattie Sellers shows how flexibilityin both managing and being managedis an increasingly critical trait in todays workplaces. Success favors the highly adaptable who are ready to swing to opportunities over here and over there.

  • Experienced Moderator

    As the co-founder and chair of Fortunes Most Powerful Women Summit, Pattie Sellers uses her sharp intellect and comfortable conversation style to play host, emcee and moderator to the preeminent gathering of women leaders in business, philanthropy, government, academia and the arts. With warmth, humor and extensive knowledge on the latest trends in business, Sellers deftly engages panelsand her audiencein a vibrant discussion that will create a memorable and informative program.
