    Simon Sinek Speaker Biography

    Simon Sinek is one of the most sought-after motivational speakers in the world. He is an optimist who believes in a bright future and our ability to build it together.

    Described as “a visionary thinker with a rare intellect,” Sinek teaches leaders and organisations how to inspire people. With a bold goal to help build a world in which the vast majority of people go home every day feeling fulfilled by their work, Sinek is leading a movement to inspire people to do the things that inspire them.

    A trained ethnographer, he is the author of several best-selling books: the global best-seller, Start With Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action (2011) and Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don’t (2014). His latest book, The Infinite Game (2018), explores the differences between finite games (football, chess, etc), where the players are known, the rules are fixed and the endpoint is clear and compares them with what he calls the infinite ones: business, politics or even life itself. In the infinite games, the players come and go, the rules can be changed, and there is no defined endpoint. Also, there are no winners and losers in an infinite game. Simon brilliantly argues that many leaders and organizations are struggling because they are applying finite mindsets to infinite games, and teaches how the infinite mindset can be applied to build stronger, more innovative and inspiring organizations.

    Fascinated by the leaders and companies that make the greatest impact in their organisations and in the world – those with the capacity to inspire – he has discovered some remarkable patterns about how they think, act and communicate and the environments in which people operate at their natural best. He has devoted his life to sharing his thinking in order to help other leaders and organisations inspire action.

    He is best known for popularising the concept of Why, and for the talk he gave on the subject that became the second most watched talk of all time on Unsurprisingly, Simon Sinek ranks as one of the best leadership speakers in the world.

    Sinek’s unconventional and innovative views on business and leadership have attracted international attention and have earned him invitations to meet with an array of leaders and organisations, including: 3M, Disney, Pfizer, NBC/Universal, jetBlue, the military, multiple government agencies and entrepreneurs. Sinek has also presented his ideas at the United Nations, the United States Congress and to the senior leadership of the United States Air Force at the Pentagon.

    Simon Sinek Keynote Topics

    This talk is based on Simon Sinek's newest bestseller, The Infinite Game. If we are all, at various times, players in infinite games, then it is in our interest to learn how to recognize the game we are in and what it takes to lead with an infinite mindset. Simon will talk about the 5 key practices to lead in the infinite game:

    1. Just Cause: does your organization offer people a cause so just, that they would be willing to sacrifice themselves and their interests in order to advance that cause?

    2. Trusting Teams: how do we create an environment in which people can work at their natural best? Trusting teams make people feel safe, allow them to be vulnerable, admit mistakes without fear of repercussions, and that ultimately generates engagement and teams of people who love their jobs.

    3. Worthy Rivals: when we have competitors in business we adopt this mindset of needing to win or needing to beat them. The problem is this is not a finite game, there's no such thing as winning because we haven't agreed upon any metrics, any time frames.. A worthy rival in your same game reveals your own weaknesses that are opportunities for you to work on improving yourself.

    4. Existencial Flexibility: that is the capacity to make profound strategic shifts, 180º turns in order to better advance your cause which left undone may ultimately lead to the demise of your own organization. If you're not willing to blow up your company, the market will blow it up for you when a new disruptor enters the space.

    5. Courage to Lead: it seems obvious, but this needs to be here because the last 4 points are extremely difficult to achieve. It is extremely hard to make decisions with a just cause in mind, when everyone pressures you for the short-term gains. It's unbelievably hard to commit yourself to the everyday practice of leadership were you obsess with trusting teams. It's much easier to focus on beating our competitors, by any means necessary, than seeing them as worthy rivals that can show our weaknesses and how we can improve ourselves. And it's also very difficult to build our organizations so that they don't only thrive now, but so that future leaders can also thanks to the existencial flexibility. And for all of that, we need an extraordinary amount of courage to lead.

    This talk is based on Simon Sinek's international bestseller, Find Your Why. The WHY is the purpose, cause or belief that drives every one of us. The whole concept of WHY is grounded in the tenets of the biology of human decision making. How the Golden Circle works maps perfectly with how the brain works. In this motivational speech, Simon will help entrepreneurs, employees, leaders of organizations and anyone who is looking to find clarity for his next move to find his or her WHY, and will teach that your WHY is the one constant that will guide you towards fulfillment in your work and life.

    Everyone is saying that millennials - the generation of people born on 1984 and after - are tough to manage. They are often accused of being entitled, narcissistic, self-interested, lazy... Because they are confronting leadership often, leaders ask them what do they want? And the answer is that they want to work in a place with purpose. In this talk, based on one of Simon's most iconic and viral speeches of the Internet, Simon will talk about the 4 characteristics that defines this generation (parenting, technology, impatience and environment) and how it is up to leaders to change this and build their confidence, teach them missing social skills, and help them get off the addiction of cell phones and social media in order to turn them into highly-skilled and fulfilled individuals who trust and are engaged.

    This talk is based on Simon Sinek's bestselling book on Leadership, Why Leaders Eat Last. Simon states that leadership is an education. And the best leaders think of themselves as students, not the teachers. This talk is aimed at business leaders, CEOs, c-level executives and anyone who wants to improve his leadership skills to better manage his teams and people. Leadership is not about being in charge, it’s about taking care of those in your charge. And anyone can learn to be a leader. The first requirement is you have to want to be one. Then you have to learn the true definition of what it means to lead. Start here!

    Customers will only love a company when the employees love it first. Culture is not the same as our corporate values and our behaviour. Only when we take our values off the wall and actually live them can we say we have a strong corporate culture. In this talk, Simon will teach tried and tested techniques any team can learn and implement to help ensure values and behaviors align. He will show how to create circles of safety; how to give honest feedback and recognition; how to build meaningful relationships and ultimately, how to create a powerful tribal culture that dramatically improves employee engagement and customer satisfaction.
