Arianna Huffington is the founder of The Huffington Post, the founder
and CEO of Thrive Global, and the author of 15 books, including, most
recently, Thrive and The Sleep Revolution. In May 2005, she launched
The Huffington Post, a news and blog site that quickly became one of
the most widely-read, linked to, and frequently-cited media brands on
the Internet. In August 2016, she launched Thrive Global, a corporate
and consumer well-being and productivity platform with the mission of
changing the way we work and live by ending the collective delusion
that burnout is the price we must pay for success.

She has been named to Time Magazine's list of the world’s 100 most
influential people and the Forbes Most Powerful Women list. Originally
from Greece, she moved to England when she was 16 and graduated from
Cambridge University with an M.A. in economics. At 21, she became
president of the famed debating society, the Cambridge Union.

She serves on numerous boards, including Uber and The Center for
Public Integrity.

Her last two books, Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and
Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder and The Sleep
Revolution: Transforming Your Life, One Night At A Time, both became
instant international bestsellers.

She is a mother, sister, flat shoe advocate, and sleep evangelist.
