OPENING KEYNOTE: The Hinge: The Importance of Mental Toughness

 

Every door has a hinge. If it doesn’t, it’s a wall. Have you ever noticed how the outcome of a close competition depends upon one play or moment? If we look closer, every season and career also possesses these crucial, pivotal moments. It only takes one. The Hinge is the one moment, event, or person that makes all the difference. It connects who we are with who we become. This is the importance of having Mental Toughness, will you be ready?

Speaker, Author, Director of Career Services Temple School of Media and

Lu Ann Cahn is the author of the inspirational memoir I Dare Me, an entertaining look back on a year that changed everything for her. The book grew out of a blog called Year of Firsts, which chronicled this veteran journalist, mother and survivor’s daily adventures as she pushed herself to try something new for every single day – an effort to get her life “unstuck,” as her daughter put it.


She went on this year long adventure while working her full time “day job” as an 8-time Emmy award-winning journalist with NBC10 News in Philadelphia. Cahn’s journey eventually led to a major career change. In December 2014, she left her 40 year career in broadcast news to dare audiences across the country and to help launch the next generation of communicators at Temple University. Cahn is the Director of Career Services for Temple’s School of Media and Communication.


Cahn is well known in Philadelphia where she worked for WCAU-TV for 27 years. She filled many roles —breaking news reporter, anchor and entertainment show host – but is most well known for her years as a hard-charging investigative reporter with a talent for uncovering scandals and scams. In 2005, Lu Ann won a National Emmy for her undercover investigative story “Dirty Little Secret” about an illegal bar run by elected officials in their dry town

In 1991 Cahn made local and national news when she publicly told her story of battling breast cancer after a missed diagnosis when she was only 35. Her 1992 special report “Breast Cancer: My Personal Story” won her a national Clarion award and two Mid Atlantic Regional Emmys.


Cahn also had surgery for ulcerative colitis and kidney cancer. She regularly speaks on behalf of Living Beyond Breast Cancer, other area cancer support groups and the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America. She hopes her survivor experience inspires others.


Earlier in her career Cahn worked at stations in Jacksonville, Florida; Chattanooga, Tennessee; Huntsville, Alabama; Little Rock, Arkansas; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Miami, Florida.

A native of Columbus, Ohio, Cahn grew up in Atlanta and graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Georgia. She is married to NBC10 Photojournalist Phil Houser. They’re proud of their daughter Alexa, who dared herself to start her own company and is now the CEO of Bad Kids Collective.
