−Thrive – A Third Metric Live Event featuring Arianna Huffington and Mika Brzezinski @ NEW YORK CITY CENTER6:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Redefine success and learn how you can lead a fuller, more-impactful life. Join the conversation with thought leaders from entertainment, fashion, politics, health care, and technology to hear how they discovered a Third Metric to measuring their achievements beyond money and power.
The relentless pursuit of the traditional measures of success — money and power — has led to an epidemic of burnout and stress-related illnesses, an erosion in the quality of our relationships, family life, and, ironically, our careers. Money and power are only part of the equation. What’s missing is “The Third Metric” – a combination of well-being, wisdom, wonder, and giving.
Hosted by Arianna Huffington and Mika Brzezinski, THRIVE: A Third Metric Live Event, brings together leaders from a variety of fields, including Tory Burch, Katie Couric, and Julianne Moore to join them for a conversation about their own experiences and steps they’ve taken to live a more sustainable, fuller and more impactful life.
You’re invited to join the discussion with other leaders in your area to learn practical ways to moderate your life towards greater effectiveness at work and home.
You don’t have to just survive.
