Ariane de Bonvoisin

CEO and Founder of First30Days.com and Author, The First 30 Days: Your Guide to Making Any Change Easier

Ariane de Bonvoisin's amazing journey from corporate darling to entrepreneur, author and 'transformationalist' can inspire and help anyone contemplating or experiencing any life change.

Walking away from a successful corporate career, Ariane de Bonvoisin transformed her life believing that from any change something good will come.

Ariane shares with audiences her unique background─she grew up and worked in over a dozen countries, distinguished herself with degrees from the London School of Economics and Stanford and worked for companies including BCG, Bertlelsmann, Sony, TimeWarner and Charlie Rose - but she wasn't happy until she was able to balance her goals with her passion to help others. Now with a successful book, her Change Nation show, a magazine column, weekly appearances on radio and TV, and through her own upcoming TV series, Ariane is determined to help others make or face any life change with optimism. Authentic, passionate and capable of touching audiences the world over, Ariane is truly a next generational force with a foot in both worlds- one who can talk to peoples minds and can touch their soul.
