Jean Case

Jan 17, 2019 • 7:00 pm

Philanthropist, investor, and technology pioneer Jean Case brings to life five principles common to the people and organizations that change the world in Be Fearless: 5 Principles for a Life of Breakthroughs and Purpose. The book is a call to action to overcome fear, be bold, and take risks for those seeking to live extraordinary lives and bring about transformational change.

Weaving together real-world stories from dozens of ordinary people who ended up doing extraordinary things, as well Case’s own transformational life experiences, Be Fearless provides a clear roadmap for individuals and organizations to ignite change at work, in life, and in communities.

Case vividly illustrates the five principles with storytelling—from John F. Kennedy’s history-making moonshot, to Jane Goodall’s remarkable breakthroughs with chimpanzees, José Andrés’ mission as a food first-responder, Airbnb’s reinvention of the hospitality industry, Bryan Stevenson’s ambitious efforts to end incarceration inequities, and more. In recounting these narratives, Case appeals to readers to ask themselves, “What can I do?” and she provides the tools to get started.

Case is the first female Chairman of the National Geographic Society in its 130-year history and CEO of the DC-based Case Foundation that invests in people and ideas that can change the world. Prior, she was a senior executive at America Online, Inc., where she directed the marketing and branding at AOL charged with bringing the Internet to the masses. Book signing to follow.
