Kathryn Schulz

Author/Public Speaker

The presentations by author and pubic speaker Kathryn Schulz expose viewers to her unwavering and highly unusual commitment to failure and regret. Schulz supports her belief in the value of being proven wrong despite the common disdain for defeat. The New York-based visionary began her trailblazing journalism career upon her graduation from Brown University.

Schulz currently works as a book critic for New York Magazine, a position that followed the publication of her pieces within the Rolling Stones, Boston Globe and TIME Magazine circulations. Her unbending support for the value of failure led her to her authorship of 'Being Wrong' in 2010, later recognized in 2012 by way of her receipt of the National Book Critic Circle's Nona Balakian Prize in Excellence in Reviewing.

Schulz's presentations also provide a window to her worldly reporting experiences as she delved into the thick of South American and Middle Eastern regions. Her brave accomplishments brought about her 2004 acceptance of the Pew Fellowship's International Journalism award.
