Keynote Speaker

Neil Pashrica has written five books including The Book of Awesome a catalog of simple pleasures based on his 50-million hit, award-winning blog, Awesome is Everywhere an interactive introduction to meditation, and most recently, The Happiness Equation, the #1 international bestselling guidebook to happiness based on new research. His books have been on New York Times and International bestseller lists for over 200 weeks and sold over a million copies.

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

Neil spent a decade running Leadership Development and working directly for two CEOs at Walmart, the world’s largest company. He was responsible for CEO onboarding, executive development, and talent management across the organization. Today he serves as Director for The Institute for Global Happiness.

Neil’s work has been featured in thousands of outlets including CNN, BBC, The Today Show, The Early Show, The Oprah Winfrey Network, Harvard Business Review, Fast Company, Fortune, and Forbes.

Neil has an MBA from Harvard Business School. He lives in Canada with his wife and two sons. 

Happier People, Happier Organizations

The strongest companies in the world have the happiest people working at them. Coincidence? Not at all. Through researching top leaders at Harvard, developing leaders inside Fortune 100 companies, and working with clients like Shell, Kraft, and Viacom, Pasricha developed unique frameworks to show people how to create happiness and use that to drive engagement and high-performance results inside organizations.

The 3 As of Awesome

Based on Neil’s endlessly popular TED Talk, this is the 3 A’s of Awesome customized to a workplace, government, or school setting and enriched with interactive exercises, explanatory videos, and a detailed Q&A. The talk is available in the Classic version which inspires audiences through Neil’s personal narrative and his universal “attitude, awareness, and authenticity” model which guarantees your group will laugh, cry, and take a big step back to reevaluate and reenergize themselves to move forward. The talk is also available in the Case-Study version as the 3 S’s of Awesome (Social, Stimulation, Story), a customized case-study format for workplaces where business case studies and real-life corporate examples leave your group with key takeaways that can be applied in the workplace at no cost to drive employee engagement and happiness. With heartfelt storytelling, breakthrough research, and lots of laughs, it’s no wonder The 3 A’s of Awesome is Neil’s most popular talk.
