Arianna Huffington

Arianna Huffington is the founder of The Huffington Post, the founder and CEO of Thrive Global, and the author of 15 books, including, most recently, Thrive and The Sleep Revolution.



In May 2005, she launched The Huffington Post, a news and blog site that quickly became one of the most widely-read, linked to, and frequently-cited media brands on the Internet, and in 2012 won a Pulitzer Prize for national reporting. In August 2016, she launched Thrive Global, a corporate and consumer well-being and productivity platform with the mission of changing the way we work and live by ending the collective delusion that burnout is the price we must pay for success. Thrive Global provides trainings, seminars, e-courses, coaching and ongoing support based on the latest scientific findings to improve people’s health and increase productivity for both companies and individuals around the world.

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

She serves on numerous boards, including Uber and The Center for Public Integrity.

Her last two books, Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder and The Sleep Revolution: Transforming Your Life, One Night At A Time, on the science, history and mystery of sleep, both became instant international bestsellers.

Going Coastal: Introducing HuffPost British Columbia

I'm delighted to announce the launch of HuffPost Alberta and HuffPost British Columbia, which will bring HuffPost's signature mix of news, blogging, community, and social engagement to these western provinces. From Alberta and British Columbia's vast energy industry and environmentalist traditions to First Nations lands and the Northern Gateway pipeline, these new Canadian editions will tell the stories that need to be told -- and, just as importantly, help those in Alberta and British Columbia tell their stories themselves. As the HuffPost family grows -- it was just last month that we welcomed HuffPost Canada Impact -- we can't wait to see how these new editions will start conversations around the stories that get to the heart of each province's identity, and those that will decide their future.

Sparking a Flame: Introducing HuffPost Canada Impact

I'm delighted to announce the launch of HuffPost Canada Impact. Impact has always been a key part of HuffPost's DNA, and our goal of starting conversations and inviting our readers to connect, engage, and make a difference in the lives of others is perfectly captured by HuffPost Canada Impact's motto: "One story can spark a flame, one person can make a difference." As HuffPost continues to expand internationally, and as our ability to connect and engage with others becomes less and less constrained by borders, we believe Impact has tremendous potential to helps us all widen the circle of our caring. In Canada, there's no better time than now to use all the tools at our disposal to widen that circle.
