Neil Pasricha Speaker Biography


A Harvard MBA, New York Times best-selling author, award-winning blogger and one of the most popular TED speakers in the world, Neil Pasricha is a “pied piper of happiness” (The Star) who dazzles audiences with ideas and frameworks that skyrocket organizational happiness and engagement.

Pasricha spent a decade inside Walmart, the world’s largest company, working for two CEOs directly and then as director of Leadership Development. He complements this “what’s worked” authority with infectious enthusiasm and heartfelt authenticity. He builds trust with audiences quickly and then challenges them to elevate expectations of themselves and commit to the habit of happiness every day.

Pasricha has spoken to royal families in the Middle East, Ivy League deans, and CEOs at organizations such as Audi, Microsoft, and Genentech — using research and models that enhance individual performance and create a more positive and productive workplace.

Neil is the author of ten books including ‘The Happiness Equation’, a science-backed habit-filled guidebook to living a happy life, ‘Two-Minute Mornings’, his simple daily practice to win your morning, and ‘The Book of Awesome’, a spinning rolodex of gratitudes based on his 100-million-hit, award-winning blog 1000 Awesome Things. Neil’s books are New York Times and #1 international bestsellers, have spent over 200 weeks on bestseller lists, and have sold over 2,000,000 copies across dozens of languages.

Neil hosts an Apple “Best of” podcast called 3 Books where he’s on an ‘epic 25-year-long quest to uncover the 1000 most formative books in the world.’ Each of the 333 chapters discusses the 3 most formative books of an inspiring person like Brené Brown, David Sedaris, Malcolm Gladwell, Daniels, Roxane Gay, and Quentin Tarantino.

Neil has degrees from Harvard and Queen’s and writes for Fast Company and Harvard Business Review.

1. HAPPINESS

THE HAPPINESS EQUATION: Science-Backed Habits to Cultivate Positive Mindset
We live in a world where we’re bombarded by change, expectation, and uncertainty. News media hijacks our brains while social media tells us we are never good enough. Anxiety, depression, and loneliness rates are at record highs. What we need is a splash-of-cold-water talk that is science-backed, story-laden, and full of laughs. Audiences learn how it is possible, despite larger tectonic plates they cannot control, to use specific research-backed tools and practices to cultivate a habit-based positive mindset every day. Based on Neil’s #1 international bestseller The Happiness Equation.

2. CHANGE

BE HAPPY FIRST: Resilience and Breakthrough Performance In Times Of Change
After Neil’s wife left him and his best friend 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 and growth can come from challenge and change. An inspiring talk that shares action-based ways to lift performance to new heights.

3. MINDSET

THE SCIENCE OF POSITIVE GROWTH MINDSET
Does great work lead to happiness? Or… does happiness lead to great work? Neil Pasricha shares counterintuitive research-based answers in this fun, fast-paced, research-grounded tour of the emerging neuroscience and positive psychology landscape. Neil shows how cultivating a positive mindset results in 31% higher productivity, 37% higher sales, and 300% greater creativity – and then shares how to get there. Based on fresh research Pasricha published in Harvard Business Review, this is a high-energy, takeaway-laden talk that gets audiences buzzing.

4. LEADERSHIP

LEAD YOURSELF BEFORE YOU LEAD OTHERS
Which company is #1 on the Fortune 500 and has been for over a decade? Walmart. The retail behemoth’s rise to half a trillion dollars in sales with over two million employees has been well-documented. But what hasn’t been documented is how they develop, nurture, and grow leaders up through those ranks. Neil served as Director of Leadership Development at Walmart and worked for the CEO while partnering with Harvard Business School to develop the first global leadership program inside the retail giant. In this talk he shares how leaders can use science-backed practices to help themselves show up to lead teams of two, two thousand, or two million. It starts with yourself. Neil will show you how.

5. HABITS

HAPPY HABITS: Tiny Changes, Massive Results
Why do so few people say, “I love my job”? Gallup reports a whopping 79% of the global workforce is disengaged. But what if there were simple habits that could help turn employees into their most engaged, creative, and productive selves? It’s not crazy talk. It’s actually happening. Using his unique blend of science-backed models and lean-in-and-laugh stories, Neil shares simple happiness habits and, more importantly, teaches audiences how to make them stick. The result is an easy and research-backed way to build small, simple habits to help create workplaces where people show up inspired to do their best work every day.
