Anne Dickerson, Founder 15 Minutes Group
Anne Dickerson launched the 15 Minutes Group in 2000 to help leaders communicate better. Initially, the focus was on high-profile clients with sprawling and complicated work, offering specialized coaching to help convey their ideas without diluting them.

Anne has since expanded that core work to help authors, CEO’s, non-profits, journalists, and experts communicate more effectively in their day-to-day work, whether it is moderating a panel or speaking to their board of directors. Over the past 18 years, Anne has helped hundreds of clients make the most of their appearances on television and radio across every major broadcast and cable outlet.

Some of the shows for which she has prepared clients include: Fresh Air with Terri Gross, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The NewsHour, 60 Minutes, Morning Joe, Marketplace, Squawkbox, The Today Show, CBS Sunday Morning, and many more.

Institutional clients include the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, Council on Foreign Relations, The Brookings Institute, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Penguin Random House, Simon & Schuster, Harper Collins, St. Martin’s Press, Albright Stonebridge, Politico, and The Human Trafficking Legal Center.

For several weeks in early, 2018 Anne’s clients were both the number one fiction and non-fiction authors in America.

Prior to starting 15 Minutes, Anne was a TV news and documentary producer and writer interviewing experts on topics ranging from educational policy to climate change to entertainment trends. She started her career as a financial analyst for Smith Barney.

Anne graduated from the University of Virginia in 1991 as an Echols Scholar. She lives in New York City and is married to journalist John Dickerson.
