The Program

Ellyn Spragins speaks about the experience of working with more than 100 corporate leaders, celebrities, politicians, performers, authors and other well-known women to create their letters to their younger selves. She then leads audiences of up to 500 step-by-step through the process of writing their letters to their younger selves and sharing the letters and lessons with each other. (Requires 2 hours, but can be expanded to an afternoon program.)

This exercise enables women to bond with their letter-writing partners and and the group at large in a deeply personal way. Tables of eight or ten women share their letters with each other and vote on the letters to be read aloud to the entire audience.


Ellyn has conducted Letters To My Younger Self® Seminars and Workshops at Microsoft, Genentech, The Federal Reserve Bank of NY, Lehman Brothers, Citibank and numerous other companies and associations. She was an award winning journalist and columnist at the New York Times before launching What I Know Now Enterprises, LLC.
