Angie Morgan

Angie Morgan is a proven leader, a successful entrepreneur, a New York Times best-selling author, and a sought-after guide who helps others become the best leaders they know.

Angie wasn’t born a leader. She became a leader after she graduated from the University of Michigan and earned her commission as a United States Marine Corps Officer, where she was one of only 1,000 women managers in an organization 175,000 strong. Angie endured some of the toughest training on earth to build her leadership and risk-taking skills, which she’s applied in her personal and professional life to achieve success. Today, she’s honored to share these exact same skills through her work as a keynote speaker, consultant, coach, and advisor inside the world’s top organizations.

She’s the author of the New York Times best-selling SPARK, Leading from the Front, and Bet on You, which will be a game-changing book for professionals who are contemplating taking risks in their lives.
