4 Speakers Who Will Empower You to Change Your Patterns of Action (And Stick To It)

Motivate your employees. Reduce your carbon footprint. Run a marathon. January is the month we want to figure out how to do better—with our time, our colleagues, and our creative endeavours. These four keynote speakers will inspire you to set goals, work through slumps, and make positive change that really sticks.

Vijay Gupta On Healing Communities Through Music 

 

Vijay Gupta produces beautiful music with the LA Philharmonic—but he also founded and operates Street Symphony, an organization that brings music to the homeless, incarcerated, and mentally ill citizens of Los Angeles. Here, he discusses the power of music to literally rewire damaged brains—and how he uses this knowledge to bring music and healing to marginalized communities.

Angela Duckworth & Katherine Milkman On Lasting Behavioral Change 

 

Angela Duckworth and Katherine Milkman want to change the way we live, one habit at a time. Duckworth, the world-renowned expert in grit, and Milkman, a research leader in self-control and choice-making, are creating tools that use data and technology to combat all social ills—including poverty, poor health, and education.

Yvonne Camus On Not Giving Up 

 

On the first day of the 2000 Eco-Challenge in Borneo, Yvonne Camus wanted to quit, and nothing was going to stop her. After months of training, she was willing to quit once and for all. So, how did she finish? “Think about what you’re capable of,” she says. Often that’s enough to keep you going just a little bit longer.
