Digital strategist, social media icon, and former monk, motivational speaker Jay Shetty has helped millions live with greater purpose. Shetty distilled his message in the 2020 bestselling book Think Like a Monk. In it, and in also his many engagements as a keynote speaker, Jay Shetty offers equal measure of insight and inspiration.
Jay Shetty’s award-winning digital campaigns and immensely popular videos have made him one of the world’s leading digital brand strategists. Forbes named him one of their 30 Under 30 in 2017, and his videos have earned more than 2 billion views.
The road to worldly success was not always clear. When Shetty earned a first-class honors degree from London’s prestigious Cass Business School, job offers poured in. Shetty had different ideas for his career, though, and lived for three years in India as a Vedic monk. By declining a traditional start to his career, Shetty had laid the groundwork for a remarkable and celebrated life.
Returning to London, Shetty began sharing his perspective with some of the world’s largest corporations, including EY and Nasdaq. Encouraged by his initial success, he then mastered the tools and techniques necessary to spread knowledge in the digital age. He helped Accenture build its digital division and became the firm’s leading social media influencer. Shetty became a sought-after executive coach, advising more than 150 business leaders on their personal branding efforts.
Facebook provided an ideal forum for Shetty’s community-oriented message, and his page exploded in popularity after its 2016 launch. The Huffington Post took notice and invited Shetty to develop video content for its platform. His daily HuffPost show, #FollowTheReader, features interviews with thought leaders from all corners. Shetty’s videos typically earn upwards of 100 million views within a week of their release.
Inspired by Jay’s #1 New York Times Bestselling book by the same name, this talk distills the timeless wisdom that Jay learned as a monk into practical, daily steps anyone can take to live a happier, more meaningful life. This session reveals how to overcome negative thoughts and habits to access the calm and purpose that lie within all of us. Jay transforms the abstract lessons into simple advice and exercises we can all apply to reduce stress, sharpen focus, improve relationships, identify our hidden abilities, increase self-discipline, and give the gifts we find in ourselves to the world. Jay proves that everyone can—and should—think like a monk.
One of the top challenges for executives is raising employee engagement, and for good reason. Engagement is on the decline across the world, and that spells trouble for business leaders everywhere. Today, employees are genuinely searching for meaning, purpose and fulfillment in the workplace. When each person deeply understands how they fit into the bigger picture they become more motivated to align with the company’s goals.
With an emphasis on work-life integration, Jay understands that a separation of the two can create more stress, inevitably trickling into personal interactions. Jay guides participants into personal awareness and an understanding of their responsibility to co-create a meaningful trajectory. This highly interactive session may include practical exercises.
We’ve lived in times ruled by lawyers, doctors and bankers. We’ve moved onto a time ruled by coders, engineers, analysts and mathematicians for the Internet. The challenge that faces individuals today is to be a connected thinker. People who can bring together mindfulness, with modern psychology, trending technology and use it for social impact will see limitless possibility where others do not. Steve Jobs made calligraphy relevant to computers. Mark Zuckerberg visited an ashram in India so that he could reinforce the importance of what he and his company was trying to do. They see what others can’t see. They perceive the invisible connections. Because it’s what you don’t see that makes what you see today possible.
The best innovators expose themselves to a broad set of human experiences; experiences that literally kick-start the creative process. The key to thinking differently is perceiving things differently. To perceive things differently, you must be exposed to divergent ideas, places and people. This forces your brain to make connections it otherwise might miss.
This session reveals how we can tap into our creativity and innovation through behavioral science to create more powerful futures . Jay will share case studies, stories and exercises that enable session participants to learn more about themselves and how to begin the creative process.
In this talk, Jay reveals that the most important muscles we can develop are those of resilience and learning to use pain for positive growth. You’ll learn what it means to build resilience and how we can build a stronger legacy on the foundation of struggle. Jay will share practical steps and encouraging insight on how hard times bring strength and beauty. By living into our own core values, practicing gratitude, creating TIME every day to reflect and develop our own behaviors in an environment where change is the only constant and levels of uncertainty the highest it’s been in generations, we can adapt, thrive, change and use moments that seem terrifying to build resilience and not give up.
Millennials may be the most studied generation in history. Considering they will make up 75% of the workforce by 2025, it comes as no surprise. The challenge lies in knowing how to recruit, retain and reward this new era as they puzzle their parents as much as their bosses. In this insightful presentation, a millennial himself dissects the mind of his generation and Gen Z to inspire you about the possibilities and opportunities they can bring. Takeaways include:
· Understanding what motivates and drives Millennials;
· Understanding how to communicate with Millennials;
· Knowing when a millennial is worth investing in;
· Changing the way you view all generations.
What got us here, won’t get us there. More and more people are worried about robots taking their jobs, the rise of artificial intelligence and machine learning pose real threats to our careers and companies. How can companies redefine their mindset for the new world? What skills need to be prioritized, enhanced and focused on and what we could let go of? Jay believes the solutions for the future are sitting inside your company right now but often they’re not being asked the right questions. This sessions unlocks that potential.
