Biography

Deborah Tannen, Ph.D. has lectured all over the world. Her audiences have included corporations such as Corning, Chevron, Motorola, and Rolm (Siemens), McKinsey and Co., Delta, as well as the Board of Trustees of The Wharton School and a gathering of U.S. senators and their spouses. Uniquely entertaining as well as enlightening, with videotaped real-life footage of office interaction, Dr. Tannen gives her audiences a new framework for understanding what happens in conversations both in the workplace and at home.

Dr. Deborah Tannen is best known as the author of You Just Don't Understand: Women and Men in Conversation, which was on The New York Times Best Seller list for nearly four years, including eight months as No. 1, and has been translated into 28 languages. It was also on bestseller lists in Brazil, Canada, England, Germany, Holland, and Hong Kong. This is the book that brought gender differences in communication style to the forefront of public awareness. Her book Talking from 9 to 5: Women and Men in the Workplace: Language, Sex, and Power, a New York Times Business Best Seller, does for the workplace what the earlier book did for women and men talking at home. Her book, The Argument Culture, received the Common Ground Book Award. Her book about family communication, I Only Say This Because I Love You, published by Random House, received the Books for a Better Life Award.

A frequent guest on television and radio news and information shows, Dr. Tannen has appeared on The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, 20/20, 48 Hours, CBS News, ABC World News Tonight, Oprah, Good Morning America, CNN, Larry King, Hardball, and NPR. She has been featured in and written for most major newspapers and magazines including the New York Times, Newsweek, TIME, USA Today, People, The Washington Post, and The Harvard Business Review.

Deborah Tannen is on the linguistics department faculty at Georgetown University, where she is one of only four who hold the distinguished rank of University Professor. She has been McGraw Distinguished Lecturer at Princeton University, and was a fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences in Stanford, California. She has published nineteen books and nearly 100 articles and is the recipient of five honorary doctorates.
