NSL hopes to make lifelong learning easy and flexible for anyone with a passion for ongoing education and thought-provoking conversation. NSL was co-founded by Anne-Cecilie Engell Speyer and Beth Kojima in order to facilitate the connection between experts and individuals interested in learning.

NSL took the model of old school salons and extended it to achieve a culture of conversation. We are proud of the breadth of content and depth of information that NSL offers.

NSL co-founder and CEO, Anne-Cecilie worked for 15 years in marketing and advertising at companies like Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, and Iconix Brand Group. She is actively involved on the Board of Trustees of The Michael J. Fox Foundation, Vineyard Theatre, Ballroom Marfa, and The Whitney Museum of American Art, where she serves as a Vice Chairman. Originally from Denmark, Anne-Cecilie received her BA from Cornell University and her MBA from NYU, Stern School of Business.
