Session Description
The secret to accelerating success lies in the caliber of mentoring and championing we seek and we offer. We cannot ignore the power of mentoring to develop and prepare us to thrive and contribute regardless of the title we hold. A staggering 94% of people credit mentoring as the key to their career success. In this session we will look at the best (and worst) practices for being mentored and for mentoring others. Whether our participation is formal, informal, structured or unstructured, whether we are the mentor or the mentee, the champion or the championed, the sponsor or the sponsored, this robust tool is always ready to serve. We all own our own success and so we must own our own development. It’s time to accelerate our success and the success of others by discovering the power of mentoring.

As a former Silicon Valley corporate attorney and a current CEO, Ann knows people from many dynamics. Working alongside some of the best and brightest lawyers, entrepreneurs, VCs, and business owners, Ann incorporated companies, negotiated mergers, managed venture-backed financings, and held the hands of many anxious CEOs, and loved it. She then started her own law firm representing over 75 entrepreneurs, grew it until her CEOs became friends, and then sold it to a larger firm that continues to represent entrepreneurs and start-ups nationwide.  In 2003 Ann followed her passion to work with leaders and launched LifeMoxie Mentoring & Leadership to transform corporate America by transforming where and how people lead. Her programs, books and speeches are loved by clients such as Kaiser Permanente, Duke Energy, Macy’s, and Southern California Edison.  As a speaker and author, Ann prepares people to execute powerfully in ever-changing environments. From keynotes to executive retreats, Ann influences audiences with her experiences and her 25 years of leadership. She is the author of four books:  Ambition on a Mission (2007), Moxie for Managers (2011), Why Mentoring Matters (2013), and The Joy of Mentoring (2015). They have become popular books for companies that are committed to creating strong leaders and strong cultures in this fiercely competitive marketplace.
