As the founder of Susan G. Komen, and a breast cancer survivor herself, Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker has been an inspiration for over 30 years to the millions of worldwide families affected by breast cancer. Her ground-breaking efforts – coupled with her creativity, determination, and leadership – have not only changed the way the world views breast cancer, but also, almost singlehandedly pioneered a whole generation of cause-related marketing and awareness initiatives. To date, the organization has raised over $2 billion toward the cause. Brinker’s trailblazing work has been awarded with numerous recognitions, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and being honored as one of TIME magazine's "100 Most Influential People."
Drawing on her own experience of founding, building and guiding the world's largest network of breast cancer survivors and activists, from her living room to a billion dollar organization, Brinker shares with audiences the many lessons learned along the way. Audiences and organizations, of all sizes and shapes, are always seeking that personal and professional competitive edge, and Nancy Brinker’s message – one of vision, passion, determination, focus, creativity, and overcoming obstacles – couldn’t be more timely or in-demand.
