One Hour Video: Arianna Huffington’s Speech

April 13, 2015

Hundreds of people packed the Fairmont Southampton Poinciana Ballroom to hear Arianna Huffington talk about the importance of looking after ourselves.

The founder of the Huffington Post was on the Island courtesy of Colonial Medical Insurance, and spoke to more than 900 people on Saturday.

She told the crowd that her ‘wake-up’ moment was when she collapsed from exhaustion, breaking her cheekbone as she fell.


Ms Huffington is the chair, president, and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group and author of 14 books.

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 MA in economics. At 21, she became president of the famed debating society, the Cambridge Union.

Her 14th book, ‘Thrive – The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder’ was published by Crown in March 2014 and debuted at #1 on The New York Times Best Seller list.

    The Huffington Post is considered a very Liberal “rag” in the USA – so I assume she will be voting for the DemoRAT shillary in the 2016 election for a new POTUS!! Wasted vote!!

    The next POTUS is coming from the GOP (Conservative/Republican) as we have to get the country back-on-track after ALL the damage that the amateur “buffoon” Hussein Odummer has done in the last 7 yrs!! NO more second-rate “Community Organizers” in the W/H!! That experiment was a monumental failure!!

    NO more Clinton’s or Bush’s in the W/H either… America is NOT a land of political dynasty’s!! We have to regain “our standing” in the world – both Nationally and Internationally!! There is much work to be done!!
