Publisher's Summary

Lydia Fenet, senior vice president of Christie’s and seasoned auctioneer, shares the secrets of success and the strategies behind her revolutionary sales approach to show you how to embrace and channel your own power in any room.

Who is the most powerful woman in the room? She’s the one who can raise a million dollars in a minute. She’s the one who can command the attention of a crowd of any size from one person to a crowd of 5,000. She’s the one who can sell anything to anyone, just by asking. She can be you.

As a senior executive at Christie’s, leader in her field, and one of Gotham Magazine’s most influential women in New York, Lydia Fenet knows firsthand the one skill that can set women apart in both their personal life and career is the ability to sell. The Most Powerful Woman in the Room Is You equips you with everything you need to know - from how to sell authentically and how to network (or die), to the importance of never apologizing (start negotiating instead), how to perfect your poker face, and always, always, tell the truth. Lydia shows us how to sharpen our personal kit of practical tools of the trade, such as finding your own “strike method”, or signature move, to help you feel confident from the minute you start any pitch. Most of all, she offers plenty of encouragement to take ownership in your position and look for opportunities to innovate.

Throughout, Lydia also shares personal and inspiring stories from her own life - like how she got her foot in the door at Christie’s after she was originally told there were no spots left in the intern program. And when she realized she was being paid a third of her worth - and how she came back more powerful than ever.

Filled with additional case studies, thoughtful insights, and meaningful advice from some of the most powerful and successful women in business, fashion, journalism, sports, and the arts, The Most Powerful Woman in the Room Is You is an empowering must-have guide that will have you winning over the audiences in all aspects of your life.

The title says it all!!

YES! The Most Powerful Woman in the Room is YOU says it all... This is a must read for women at any stage of their career!! The advice is spot on. I found myself smiling and nodding Lydia told her story, and shared the stories of other powerful women.

If you are a woman rising your career, or a mentor of young professionals, put this one on your "must read" list for 2019!

For those of you who use Audible, Lydia narrates the book herself which adds richness and depth to the words.

One of the best I have heard in a long time

While Lydia is younger than me, her advice, stories and wit resonated deeply with my current career situation. There’s nothing “new” in this book if that’s what are looking for - only honest, thoughtful and yes funny stories iced with life lessons everyone can use.
I highly recommend this book as a gift graduating seniors, moms going back to work, and even the age not mentioned in the book....which is over 49.
