Lauren Manning

Former Cantor Fitzgerald Partner & Author of New York Times Bestseller, Unmeasured Strength; 9/11 World Trade Center Attack Burn Survivor

In an age of anxiety and uncertainty, Lauren Manning shares life-changing lessons in decisive leadership, resilience, and finding the unmeasured strength within each of us.

Lauren is a renowned role model for anyone struggling to find the strength, fortitude or inspiration to surmount personal or professional challenges. A former managing director and partner at Cantor Fitzgerald, Lauren battled against all odds and emerged from the fires of the September 11th terrorist attacks in New York. Chosen by CNN as one of the most intriguing newsmakers of their first 25 years, and named by the president of the United States as the personification of American resilience, her story has been chronicled globally, including her New York Times best-selling memoir, “Unmeasured Strength.” Now, as the co-founder and chief strategist of social e-commerce company, and managing director at Golden Seeds, one of the nation’s most active early-stage investment firms, Lauren’s successful return to the business world serves as an inspiring example of courage and commitment. 

On stage, Lauren captivates with a profound message of leadership, resilience and will. Tactfully incorporating humor with valuable insight on achieving both personal victories and professional success in the face of unspeakable adversity, she inspires us all to recognize our inner strength and power to prevail.
