Intro

As both an entrepreneur and “intrapreneur,” Herrera Mulligan, who has co-founded two magazines and has helped architect at least 10 media platform startups over her 20-year career, has broken ground in almost every job she’s ever had. What’s the secret to firing up a new product like a bottlerocket, exploding into untapped audiences everywhere? First, discover a new reader. Then, figure out how to inspire them to imagine the impossible. This talk will leave you feeling both exhilarated and ready for action: Where there once were roadblocks, you will feel yourself breaking new ground.

About Michelle

Mulligan is a writer and editor with 20 years of experience. Her essays and articles have reached more than 1 million people online and in print in the past two years, in publications ranging from Cosmopolitan, The New York Times magazine to Elle.com. She was the founding editor in chief of Cosmo For Latinas magazine, and built a community that consistently reached 2-3 million readers per month online and more than 100,000 on the newsstand. A frequent college speaker and writing coach, she feels especially inspired to work on projects focused creating a vision, owning one's voice, and building a dream, which she spoke about at a TEDx conference hosted at Barnard College.

We invited Michelle to speak at the luncheon for our premiere event this year in front of an audience of 400. For me, she was the star of the afternoon. Her talk was at once funny and relatable and moving with a strong call to action. Michelle has a unique stage presence that is quiet but powerful and extremely captivating. During her talk, one of my guests, a typically strong critic, I might add, even sent me a message with the subject line reading "I need to meet her!."
