In this talk, Tanzer will discuss the journey that led to her current role as president of a $100 million lifestyle brand. With equal parts inspiration and practical advice, she will shed light on how the power of relationships defined her success and demonstrate how you can unlock your true potential through your relationships. Tanzer also will share lessons on the power and profitability of optimism and its role in building a meaningful brand while also doing good in the world.

“Throughout my career and most notably at Life is Good, I’ve seen how optimism can empower us to explore the world with open arms and an eye toward solutions, progress and growth,” said Tanzer. “I’m so excited to share these lessons on optimism, many of which we learned from our customers, with the vibrant HOTEC community.”
