Lenore Skenazy is a lot of things — keynote speaker, popular blogger, TV host, and a genuine thought leader on issues ranging from parenting to policy to consumer insights. And, oh yes, she’s “America’s Worst Mom.”
The New York City columnist-turned-reality TV show host got that title after letting her 9-year-old son take the subway, alone. In response to the enormous media blowback, she founded the book and blog, “Free-Range Kids,” which launched the anti-helicopter parenting movement.
Her belief we are making our kids “too safe to succeed” has led to speaking gigs at corporations, colleges and conventions around the world, from Microsoft Headquarters to the Sydney Opera House to the Yale Child Study Center (twice).
Companies and Women’s Groups appreciate her message: “Lean Out…of your children’s lives a little. It’s good for everyone!”
College Audiences — students and parents alike — are relieved to hear: “Cutting the cord doesn’t have to hurt.”
Early Educators embrace Lenore’s mantra: “Free-play is nature’s super-vitamin.”
Schools get great turnouts for Lenore’s talk: “How Can You Raise a Perfect Kid? (Hint: Trick Question)”
And corporations are intrigued to learn that Lenore has been invited to Fortune 100 marketing and research departments to share her insights about today’s parents, as well to give her engaging, transformative class, “How to Observe, Interview and Write Like a Reporter.”
You may have seen Lenore on Dr. Phil, The View, The Today Show, NPR, Good Morning America, Nightline, ABC World News Tonight, CBS Early Show, NN, FoxNews, Anderson Cooper, the BBC, CTV, CBC — or in pretty much any newspaper. Reporters call her because they know she’s fast, funny and smart.
She’s ready to bring all that to your next event. Better still, she’s ready to make your audience leave more confident, insightful — and successful.
Added bonus: “I laughed so hard my stomach hurt.” — Audience member in San Francisco
