Perfectly Imperfect: A Life in Progress
With the publication of her new book, Perfectly Imperfect, Woodruff continues her often funny, sometimes poignant and always resilient take on life. In a Nora Ephron meets Erma Bombeck delivery, Woodruff connects audiences with the many commonalities and anecdotes of being a daughter, mother, friend, working woman, and caregiver. She also draws on some of the life lessons and experiences she chronicled in her number one best-seller "In an Instant," which details her family's journey of recovery after her husband Bob was injured by a roadside bomb in Iraq.
With the same witty sense of humor she brings to her reporting on CBS This Morning and her down-to-earth delivery, Woodruff takes the audience on a rollercoaster ride of self-deprecating humor and shares some of her wisdom from having traveled on the "grittier pavement in life."
One of the most popular aspects of her presentation are the insightful and often surprising tips Woodruff has to offer anyone going through a difficult time or the people surrounding them, from what to say and what not to say to what to do, Woodruff lays it out for the audience in an engaging fashion.
Life Changes in an Instant
Based on the NY Times bestseller she co-wrote with her husband Bob Woodruff, In an Instant, Woodruff details her and her husband's ordeal in this keynote presentation. It is a highly inspirational story describing her husbands painstaking recovery from traumatic brain injuries sustained while covering the war in Iraq. However, the travails, courage, and eventual triumph of the caregiver, Lee herself, and the impact on and of her children is a poignant, entertaining, and often even humorous look at how a family is impacted and reacts to prevail when their lives are changed "in an instant". Woodruff also describes the horrible toll that traumatic brain injury takes on others - particularly service people returning from Iraq and Afghanistan and the struggles that they, their families, and our society face in healing and reintegrating into civilian life.
