  • Meetings for North Shore Women in Business


• Do you have an idea for a business, but you’re not sure how to make it a reality?

• Need a new profit stream for your current business?

• What dreams (professional and/or personal) have you been secretly harboring?

• What’s holding you back from pursuing those dreams?

• Do they seem too elusive or unrealistic? Not profitable? Do you feel it’s just too late to start?

Penguin expert, TED speaker, and award-winning author, Dyan deNapoli,, truly believes you are never too old (or never too young) to pursue a dream - no matter your current qualifications or apparent feasibility of said dream. She is living proof that dream-chasing - and building a business from your passion - is entirely possible. At any age! Dyan didn't start working with penguins until she was 36 years old. After co-managing the penguin colony at Boston's New England Aquarium for 9 years, she started her educational company, The Penguin Lady at age 44. Simon & Schuster's Free Press published her award-winning book, The Great Penguin Rescue when she was 49. She gave the first of her four TEDx talks at 50 and landed her dream gig as a regular guest lecturer for Lindblad Expeditions/National Geographic at 55. Dyan's story just might inspire you to step outside of your comfort zone and finally DO the things you've always dreamed of doing! You might reinvigorate your current career; start on a whole new career path, or possibly change the trajectory of your entire life!

Dyan deNapoli (AKA The Penguin Lady) is a penguin expert, TED Speaker, and author of the award-winning book The Great Penguin Rescue, which chronicles her experiences helping to manage the rescue of 40,000 penguins from an oil spill in South Africa. Dyan is a frequent guest on radio, podcasts, and TV in the US and abroad, including CNN, CBC Canada, and the BBC. The first of her four TEDx talks are featured on - her talks have garnered nearly 1 million views to date. In 2016, she was selected for the inaugural voyage of Homeward Bound, a leadership initiative for women-in-science based in Antarctica. Dyan recently returned from her second season as a Global Perspectives Guest Speaker for Lindblad Expeditions/National Geographic on their Antarctic expeditions.
