Michele Sullivan

Michele L. Sullivan, a former executive at Caterpillar, is unforgettable. Over the last 30 years, she has changed the course of millions of lives. A Fortune 100 business executive, author, motivational speaker, and strategic business advisor, Sullivan is the author of the book Looking Up: How a Different Perspective Turns Obstacles into Advantages. From a young person born with a very rare type of dwarfism, who, in spite of being looked down upon by others, learned to look up: to lead with an elevated view of others, a philosophy that landed her at the helm of one of the world’s most prominent philanthropy organizations. With inspiring style, she offers an unique perspective and inspiration for individuals and leaders that attests to the fundamental role one’s perspective plays in their life.
