Here are some nice things people have said about me:

“Ann was amazing - she kept the audience engaged and entertained the entire time. During Q&A, Ann was frank, brilliant and hilarious. Audience members gave her rave reviews.” -Merici Vinton, Ada’s List

“Ann mixes pith about social and media trends with charm, affirmation and warmth. Her secret formula amounts to alchemy, and results in standing-O’s.” -Mark Kramer, Power of Narrative Conference

“Ann Friedman spent two days at the University of Missouri last year, sharing her wit and wisdom with both small groups of young journalists and large student audiences across the campus. Her generosity and spirit keep rippling through the population here.” -Professor Mary Kay Blakely, Missouri School of Journalism

“Ann is a hilarious and insightful speaker. Her talk got rave reviews around the office, and it motivated our team to get back to work. Her down-to-earth, conversational style will leave you charmed and inspired.” -Kate Kiefer Lee, Mail Chimp
