If you are ever feeling a bit down, read this, and you’re sure to feel better. I hope that our paths cross again.”

“Since meeting Anne at the Harvard Advanced Leadership Initiative, she has been a tremendous resource, asset and friend to me and to the entire Harvard Men’s Basketball program. Anne met with our team on multiple occasions, conducting meaningful leadership and team-building seminars. Our players always come out of discussions with Anne with a new perspective and understanding of how to approach their relationships with one another — something that is crucial to our success as a team. Her positive outlook, authenticity and enthusiasm are contagious. We are lucky to count Anne as a supporter and friend of our team.”

for Harvard Men’s Basketball

“I love Anne Pratt. I’ve been blessed to have gotten to build a great relationship with her, she has been a focal part of our team’s success. Her message with Nelson Mandela and the idea of Ubuntu really helped unify our team. It’s amazing how small the world is and what people Harvard connects you with, I’m glad to meet her!”

Noah Kirkwood

Harvard Basketball Team

“I rate Anne Pratt as five out of five. I don’t know if I have ever had anyone address me in this way before. I love that she found such comfort in hard times in remembering the weight that was carried on Mandela’s shoulders and how he persisted despite that. I would highly recommend Anne come back to address the University.”

Emily Hanson

UVU Business Student

“I’m just amazed by Anne. I have learned a lot from what she shared and also from her examples and her characteristics. She influences me a lot more than she thinks. I’m grateful for this class that I got a chance to meet and learn from her. ”

Gaew Khaomuangoi

UVU Business Student

“She was clear, concise, entertaining, and inspiring. It was amazing to hear her point of view of Nelson Mandela and how he impacted her country as well as her own life. She did a great job and I enjoyed being able to listen and learn more about her life and country, as well as reflect on America and my own life.”


Braden Fisher


UVU Business Student

“The biggest thing that stuck out for me was that I won’t always be measured by what’s on my resume. More importantly, I’ll be measured by my purpose, characteristics, attributes, and the impact I’ve made. I would be happy to hear from Anne again in the future and learn more about what exactly she’s done in the professional world.”
