Queen Esther evolved from a contestant in the ancient world’s largest beauty contest to the most powerful woman in the Persian empire. How did she do it? By being a brilliant strategist, a courageous risk-taker and a persuasive communicator. AND, through it all, she was true to her principles and ethics.

In her book, What Queen Esther Knew, author Connie Glaser takes a deeper look at the events of the Purim story. She presents the queen as smart, savvy and strategic—a timeless role model for effective leadership.

Connie will share chapters from her book, including the topics of “It Pays to Know the Palace Gossip” and “Dealing with Life’s Hamans”. She has received rave reviews for her presentation from companies all over the country—including Xerox, TimeWarner, Johnson & Johnson, FedEx and Forbes.

About Connie Glaser: Connie is the country’s foremost expert on Women’s Leadership and Communications. She is a best-selling author and speaker and has appeared on the Today Show, CNN, and NBC Nightly News. Her syndicated column, Winning at Work, appears in leading newspapers throughout the country.
