Anne Marie is a highly sought-after keynote speaker and emcee. Delivering keynotes that are alternately funny and touching she seeks to connect with the audience through the power of storytelling.

Her signature keynote, Building an Audacious Mindset, challenges audiences to forget everything they learned about what should happen and create a life built on what could happen if we didn’t accept NO. Anne Marie is a master at helping both corporate and educational audiences discover how to build highly successful teams. Utilizing the methods observed through behind closed doors coverage of many of sport’s most successful coaches and executives, Anderson delivers concrete tools and entertaining examples of what has worked – and has NOT worked – on some of the biggest stages in sport.

Her first book, Cultivating Audacity – How to Dismantle Doubt and Take Bold Risks, will be released January of 2025. Anderson walks the reader through a step-by-step process to discover what has been holding them back from doing “the thing” that they have wanted to do. Whether it is a professional move or a life upgrade, Anne Marie guides the reader through identifying and breaking down their personal barriers to live an audacious life with confidence.

An avid sports fan and participant, and mother of three, Anne Marie enjoys playing beach volleyball, golf, hiking, swimming… and any game in which you keep score!
