Marcus Buckingham Speaker Biography


Marcus Buckingham is a global researcher and thought leader focused on unlocking strengths, increasing performance, and pioneering the future of how people work. He is the author of two of the bestselling business books of all time, has two of Harvard Business Review’s most circulated, industry-changing cover articles, and his strengths assessments have been taken by over 10 million people worldwide.

Building on nearly two decades of experience as a Senior Researcher at Gallup Organization, he currently guides the vision of the ADP Research Institute as Head of People + Performance research. He founded The Marcus Buckingham Company in 2006 with a clear mission: to instigate a “strengths revolution.” It started, as all revolutions do, with the simplest of ideas: that when people spend the majority of each day on the job using their greatest talents and engaged in their favorite tasks, doing exactly what they want to do, both they and their organizations will win.

In other words, companies that focus on cultivating employees’ strengths rather than simply improving on people’s weaknesses stand to dramatically increase efficiency and productivity while allowing for maximum personal growth.

In all of his speeches, Marcus demonstrates the correlation between strengths-driven, engaged employees and business fundamentals such as turnover rates, customer satisfaction, profits, and productivity. Challenging entrenched preconceptions about achievement to get to the core of what drives success, Marcus’s strengths-based approach is a win/win scenario that, without exaggeration, will define the future of work.

“Love + Work”: How to find what you love, love what you do, and do it for the rest of your life.

World renowned researcher on leadership and New York Times bestselling author MARCUS BUCKINGHAM demystifies the classic work advice “do what you love” and helps us discover where we’re at our best – both at work and in life – in his new book and keyntoe, Love + Work. Buckingham is dedicated to discovering the crucial intersection between what we love to do and how we contribute it to others, and how we can break free from the pressure to conform that keeps us from living full and meaningful lives. Love + Work is already being heralded by Forbes as one of the ten must-reads for career and leadership in 2022, “to not only help people determine what they love to do, but help them choose roles where they’ll succeed, reshape existing jobs and do work that stands out from the crowd.”
