I Used to Have a Handle on Life, but it Broke
You've organized, prioritized, delegated, and simplified. You’ve made friends and linked in. You’re a veteran of the time-management wars, fighting for the life balance ideal -- and you are losing. In this humorous and fast-paced presentation, you’ll be reminded that there is more to life than writing, and you’ll go home with a suit-case full of ideas for staying connected to what matters most.
Mary LoVerde is a professional speaker and has been an author for over 25 years. She has published four books in three languages (Simon and Schuster): Stop Screaming at the Microwave: How to Connect Your Disconnected Life; Touching Tomorrow; I Used to Have a Handle on Life But It Broke; and The Invitation: When You Are Ready to Take Your Next Step. Her diverse client list includes Apple, LinkedIn, NASA, the Mayo Clinic, and the American Trucking Association. Her blog is read in 35 countries. Her original work is published in the three “most important” journals: The Wall Street Journal, the New England Journal of Medicine, and the Ladies Home Journal. She has appeared on a 20/20 special on women and stress, on ABC World News Tonight, and four times on the Oprah Winfrey show. Speaker Magazine named her as one of the Top 25 Most Influential Speakers who are shaping the industry and the National Speakers Association inducted her into the Speakers Hall of Fame. She served on the faculty of the University of Colorado School of Medicine for 15 years as the Director of Hypertension Research Center.
In 2010 Mary accepted an unexpected invitation to sell her one-of-a kind dream home in Denver, give away nearly all her belongings, and embark on a make-it-up-as-you go global adventure, living around the world without a house for three years. Her motto was “At home wherever I am.” She is passionate about helping people use words to connect with what matters most.
