DATE: Thursday, January 15, 2015, 12 - 2:00 p.m.
LOCATION & LUNCH: Kirkland & Ellis LLP, 601 Lexington Avenue (at 53rd Street), 50th Floor, New York, NY. Kirkland has graciously offered to provide lunch and an autographed copy of The Confidence Code to the in-person attendees.
TOPIC: The Confidence Code. Confidence. We know it when we see it or think we do. And we want it for ourselves. At this event, New York Times best-selling author and Good Morning America journalist Claire Shipman will deconstruct this essential, elusive, and misunderstood quality and offer a blueprint to bring more of it into our lives. With probing questions posed by author, workplace and women's issues' expert Deborah Epstein Henry, Claire will discuss the findings from her new book, The Confidence Code, which she co-authored with BBC journalist, Katty Kay. Claire will share the wisdom they discovered and answer these questions and more: Does confidence come from our genes or can we learn it? Is it best demonstrated by bravado or is there another way to be confident? Is confidence more critical for success than competence? Why do even the most successful seem to struggle with feelings of self-doubt? Claire will examine how confidence impacts our leadership, success, and fulfillment and provide steps to become more confident simply by taking action and courting risk. Through facilitated dialogue and practical examples, Claire will inspire us to act on our best instincts and be authentic to change our physical wiring. In turn, we will feel -- as well as convey -- the transformative power of a life built on confidence.
