He is a top-rated leadership keynote speaker, New York Times bestselling author, and positive psychology researcher focused on the relationship between happiness and leadership in business.

 

Neil is one of the most popular TED speakers with his first TED Talk “The 3 A’s of Awesome” (2010) ranked as one of the ten most inspiring of all time and his second “How will you maximize your tiny, short life?” (2016) the world’s first ever TED Listen, composed entirely of questions. As a leadership keynote speaker Neil has spoken to hundreds of thousands of people around the world including Fortune 100 companies, Ivy League schools, and Royal Families in the Middle East.

After graduating from Harvard Business School, Neil Pasricha spent a decade as Director of Leadership at Walmart, the world’s largest company.

Keynote Topic #1

Cultivating Calm During Chaos.

Neil has created an all-new virtual keynote in response to spiking anxiety, stress, and mental health challenges as we look toward the future of the complex world. The session offers three research-backed daily practices to ground and center yourself, key phrases to help speak to yourself and loved ones during times of disruption, and an optional Q&A to hear and connect with peers while getting empathetic, research-backed tools. All virtual events come with a “Care Package” tailored by Neil which employees can use from home afterwards.

The care package includes:

 

  • A tailored video from Neil
  • A 9-part resilience video series
  • A resilience self-growth workbook
  • Two new articles from Neil: “3 S’s of Success” + “This two minute morning practice will make your day better”
  • A “9 steps to resilience” poster
  • A list of additional free online resources
Keynote Topic #2

Be Happy First: Resilience and Breakthrough Performance In Times Of Change.

After Neil Pasricha’s wife left him and his best friend suddenly took his own life, he crash-landed in an empty downtown bachelor apartment. Just twelve months later, he was working directly for the CEO at Walmart, running the International Academy of Digital Arts and Science’s “Best Blog in the world”, and had just published The Book of Awesome which stormed the New York Times bestseller list and sold over a million copies.

The lesson was clear: resilience, change, and growth can come from times of challenge. This inspiring talk is for anybody looking for simple practical ways to lift performance to new heights. In Neil’s case, he realized before life could change, he had to change. Leadership ultimately comes from within.

When company execs would ask him “How did you get so happy?” he’d share the secret is to “Be happy first” and let the mindset you cultivate ultimately enable your success. Neil’s presentation leaves audiences with five clear tools they can use to achieve their biggest goals. (Past clients include: Uber (marketing), Momenta (bioscience execs), University of Texas (students and faculty).

  • Human Over Algorithm: In an era of bots, we trust brains
