Over a period of 6 years, Mo started close to half of Google’s operations worldwide.In 2013 he moved to Google’s infamous innovation arm, Google [X] where he led the business strategy, planning, sales, business development and partnerships. [X] does not attempt to achieve incremental improvements in the way the world works, but instead, it tries to develop new technologies that will reinvent the way things are and deliver a radical, ten fold—10X—improvement. This leads to seemingly SciFi ideas such as: Project Loon, which aims to use high-altitude balloons to provide affordable internet access to the 5 billion people on every square inch of our planet, Project Makani, aiming to revolutionize wind energy generation using autonomous carbon fiber kites as well as Self driving carsGoogle Life Sciences, and many more. The business team under Mo’s leadership has designed innovative business models analogous to the disruptive technologies [X] creates, and has created deep partnerships and global deals that enabled [X] to thrive and build products fit for the real world.Alongside his career, Mo remained a serial entrepreneur who has cofounded more than 20 businesses in fields such as health and fitness, food and beverage and real estate. He served as a board member in several technology, health and fitness and consumer goods companies as well as several government technology and innovation boards in the Middle East and Eastern Europe. He mentors tens of start-ups at any point in time.Mo Gawdat is the author of “Solve for Happy: Engineer Your Path to Joy” (2017). Through his 12 year research on the topic of happiness, he created an algorithm and a repeatable well engineered model to reach a state of uninterrupted happiness regardless of the circumstances of life. Mo’s happiness model proved highly effective. And, in 2014, was put to the ultimate test when Mo lost his son Ali to preventable medical error during a simple surgical procedure. Solve For Happy is the pillar for a mission Mo has committed to as his personal moonshot, a mission to deliver his happiness message to one billion people around the world (#onebillionhappy).

Picture your life without the ability to walk, care for your basic needs, or even embrace those you love. Meet Nicholas Vujicic (pronounced VOO-yee-cheech). Without any medical explanation or warning, Nick was born in 1982 in Melbourne, Australia, without arms and legs. Three sonograms failed to reveal complications. And yet, the Vujicic family was destined to cope with both the challenge and blessing of raising a son who refused to allow his physical condition to limit his lifestyle.The early days were difficult. Throughout his childhood, Nick not only dealt with the typical challenges of school and adolescence, but he also struggled with depression and loneliness. Nick constantly wondered why he was different than all the other kids. He questioned the purpose of life, or if he even had a purpose. According to Nick, the victory over his struggles, as well as his strength and passion for life today, can be credited to his faith in God. His family, friends and the many people he has encountered along the journey have inspired him to carry on, as well.Since his first speaking engagement at age 19, Nick has traveled around the world, sharing his story with millions, sometimes in stadiums filled to capacity, speaking to a range of diverse groups such as students, teachers, young people, business professionals and church congregations of all sizes. Today this dynamic young evangelist has accomplished more than most people achieve in a lifetime. He’s an author, musician, actor, and his hobbies include fishing, painting and swimming. In 2007, Nick made the long journey from Australia to southern California where he is the president of the international non-profit ministry, Life Without Limbs, which was established in 2005.Nick says, “If God can use a man without arms and legs to be His hands and feet, then He will certainly use any willing heart!” Nick’s latest foray into radio will expand his platform for inviting men and women all around the world to embrace the liberating hope and message of Jesus Christ.

Doctors and patients in his model relate to each other on the basis of mutual trust and patients receive plenty of time from their doctors. Allopathic doctors and practitioners of alternative medicine will work side by side in Patch’s model. If you think that all sounds like a utopian impossibility, it isn’t. Patch and hiscolleagues practiced medicine at the Gesundheit Institute together in West Virginia that way for 12 years in what Patch refers to as their “pilot project.” In that time they saw 15,000 patients. From that experience onward Patch Adams has devoted his life to the study of what makes people happy.Through the success of this program at the West Virginia location, a model health care facility is being planned on 310 acres purchased in Pocahontas County, WV. The Institute will include a 40-bed hospital, a theater, arts and crafts shops, horticulture and vocational therapy. Over five years ago, Dr. Adams and staff temporarily stopped seeing patients so that they could coordinate plans for raising the $5 million needed for the Institute’s permanent and expanded home, a model health care community. Currently planned is an immediate phase of this dream, a $400,000 facility on the land in West Virginia, so that their medical practice can resume within the next two years.The Institute addresses, by action, four major issues in health care delivery: the rising cost of care, dehumanization of medicine, malpractice suits, and abuse of third-party insurance system.Additionally, Dr. Adams adds to his training as a physician his experience as a street clown. In working with health care and mental health professionals, he explores the relationship between humor and therapy using his unique blend of knowledge, showmanship and “hands on” teaching techniques. Dr. Adams says, “I interpret my experience in life as being happy. I want, as a doctor, to say it does matter to your health to be happy. It may be the most important health factor in your life.”Patch Adams, M.D., is a nationally known speaker on wellness, laughter, and humor as well as on health care and health care systems. He approaches the issues of personal, community, and global health with “zestful exuberance,” according to Time Magazine. Dr. Adams believes that “the most revolutionary act one can commit in our world is to be happy.” He was the subject of the 1998 biopic, Patch Adams, starring Robin Williams.

Over a period of 6 years, Mo started close to half of Google’s operations worldwide.In 2013 he moved to Google’s infamous innovation arm, Google [X] where he led the business strategy, planning, sales, business development and partnerships. [X] does not attempt to achieve incremental improvements in the way the world works, but instead, it tries to develop new technologies that will reinvent the way things are and deliver a radical, ten fold—10X—improvement. This leads to seemingly SciFi ideas such as: Project Loon, which aims to use high-altitude balloons to provide affordable internet access to the 5 billion people on every square inch of our planet, Project Makani, aiming to revolutionize wind energy generation using autonomous carbon fiber kites as well as Self driving carsGoogle Life Sciences, and many more.

Through his 12 year research on the topic of happiness, he created an algorithm and a repeatable well engineered model to reach a state of uninterrupted happiness regardless of the circumstances of life. Mo’s happiness model proved highly effective. And, in 2014, was put to the ultimate test when Mo lost his son Ali to preventable medical error during a simple surgical procedure.

What is the recipe for happiness? Where does it come from? Is it contagious? What can you do to make your employees happier, and what will that do for your organization?

Here’s the thing. Happiness is tricky—and it often coexists with stress, frustration, or even anger. You can see that for yourself easily enough, by thinking of a time when you’ve heard someone say they are happy and then, in the same breath, complain about how stressful their work is. That might seem like a contradiction, but it isn’t one.

The fact is that subjective well-being, which all of us feel, depends on two dimensions. Evaluative well-being is not the same as experienced well-being. The first refers to general value judgements on what surrounds us. If we’re in a stressful or unpleasant environment, our evaluative well-being will be low. However, experienced well-being is a question of the emotions that accompany specific experiences. No matter your surroundings, achieving something meaningful is going to feel good.

Daniel Kahneman, Nobel Prize-Winner for Economics and the mind behind the two-dimensional theory of happiness says that people live in one way but assess in another. And that’s just one of the many brilliant, original ideas that he can share with your audience if you decide to have him as a speaker at your next event. We are delighted to announce that his name has joined the list of exceptional, illustrious speakers on psychology and happiness available through Aurum Speakers Bureau.

Our portfolio is composed of leading minds who will bring the degree of rigor that is needed in dealing with topics such as success, vulnerability, self-betterment or compassion. These aren’t your everyday speakers—they’re the best of the best.

Brené Brown will reveal why authenticity, peace, and courage are the most powerful sources of inspiration, and Nick Vujicic will explain his experience with tetra-amelia syndrome and remind us that motivation can overcome any disability. It’s a message he has shared around the world and which only becomes more valuable over time.

So, what is the recipe for happiness?

No one answer is definitive. There are many definitions, and our speakers have assembled the best of them to present to you. They remind us, first and foremost, that we are all creators of happiness and sources of joy. And then, second…well, we’ll let them surprise you. Hire a speaker through Aurum, and you get surprise and excitement guaranteed. Happiness, too.
