WHY SHE MATTERS Everyone from President Obama to Prince William and Amal Clooney have blogged for The Huffington Post — a testament to the power and reach of this vast digital brand (214 million global unique visitors each month) and its charismatic leader. Ten years after the mogul founded the influential portal, it continues to expand, with upcoming launches of Australian and Arabic sites that will bring HuffPost’s international edition tally to 15. At 64, the mother of two daughters, who lives in Soho, is slowing down — a little: “I have made many changes in the way I live my life, including getting eight hours of sleep a night.”
CAREER HIGH POINT “Launching HuffPost Greece last November was the ultimate homecoming.”
IDEAL NYC TEMPERATURE “There's no ideal temperature. All that matters is that New Yorkers have the chance to complain about the weather. Now we’re complaining about the never-ending winter. But eventually it will end and we can transition to complaining about the heat.”
BEST MEAL FOR BUSINESS MEETINGS “Afternoon tea, with scones — did you know you can get gluten-free ones? — clotted cream and cucumber sandwiches. And walnuts, pistachios, cheeses, berries, Juice Press juices. I inherited my mother’s love of feeding people. She honestly believed that if you didn’t eat something every 20 minutes, something terrible would happen to you.”
