I frequently will speak to academic, community, and organizational audiences. My expertise is primarily in two broad areas.
- First, for the past 15 years I have taught a course on the psychology of happiness, and can speak to the various mechanisms individuals can use to make their lives happier. The three most frequent topics I discuss are gratitude, positive emotions, and prosocial behavior.
- Second, my primary area of research concerns how people's work lives effect their overall well being, a topic I have been studying for 20 years. The most frequent topics I discuss in this area include generally how to become happier at work, how to make fulfilling career choices, and how to find highly meaningful work.
My rates for speaking will fluctuate based on various factors including: a) time allotted for speaking, b) time need for preparation, c) travel costs, and d) in person or over zoom. Please feel free to email me directly for inquiries: firstname.lastname@example.org
