Cocktails & Conversations: Thrive with Arianna Huffington
Bloomberg L.P., 731 Lexington Avenue
On March 30, 2017, 300 NYWICI members and friends gathered at this sold-out Cocktails & Conversations event to take the best steps toward true success with one of the most successful entrepreneurs, founder and CEO of Thrive Global, co-founder and former editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post and New York Times best-selling author Arianna Huffington. Arianna advised her audience on how one can move from surviving to truly thriving by changing just a few key habits: Decrease stress and burnout, understand the importance of sleep — and be more connected, productive, motivated and fulfilled in everything that matters in one's career and personal life.
Arianna Huffington is the founder and CEO of Thrive Global, the founder of The Huffington Post, and the author of 15 books, including, most recently, Thrive and The Sleep Revolution.
In May 2005, she launched The Huffington Post, a news and blog site that quickly became one of the most widely-read, linked to, and frequently-cited media brands on the Internet, and in 2012 won a Pulitzer Prize for national reporting. In August 2016, she launched Thrive Global, a corporate and consumer well-being and productivity platform with the mission of changing the way we work and live by ending the collective delusion that burnout is the price we must pay for success. Thrive Global provides trainings, seminars, e-courses, coaching and ongoing support based on the latest scientific findings to improve people’s health and increase productivity for both companies and individuals around the world.
She has been named to Time Magazine's list of the world’s 100 most influential people and the Forbes Most Powerful Women list. Originally from Greece, she moved to England when she was 16 and graduated from Cambridge University with an M.A. in economics. At 21, she became president of the famed debating society, the Cambridge Union.
She serves on numerous boards, including Uber and The Center for Public Integrity.
Her last two books, Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder and The Sleep Revolution: Transforming Your Life, One Night At A Time, on the science, history and mystery of sleep, both became instant international bestsellers.
