Conference Speaking Engagements

Rania Anderson speaking at the Midland Theater

Rania keynotes, moderates, and participates on panels in the U.S. Africa, Latin America, Eastern Europe and the Middle East.

A renowned business speaker, Rania is well-known for being a step ahead: She knows precisely how to challenge her audiences to consider what they have not been thinking about or doing in order to get ahead. Sought after for her candor, Rania always goes beyond inspiration to share specific actions that the audience can implement to make a difference. Time and again, this is what her clients value most and why they hire her again and again. Her trailblazing approach, and unique blend of both coaching and leadership speaking, is what sets her apart from the pack.
