When the global economy collapsed in 2008, Shawn Achor was immediately called in as an expert by the world's largest banks to help restart forward progress. Subsequently, Shawn has spoken in 45 countries to a wide variety of audiences: bankers on Wall Street, students in Dubai, CEOs in Zimbabwe. Mr. Achor’s research on happiness and human potential has received attention from the Harvard Business Review, New York Times, Forbes, CNN, and NPR.

His TED talk is one of the most popular of all time with over 10 million views, and he has a new lecture airing on PBS called The Happiness Advantage.
