“A passionate student of the mind and an unabashed believer in human potential. Part scientist, part storyteller, she translates the complexities of neuroscience into inspirational yet practical advice that helps people lead healthier, happier, more creative, abundant lives.” O, The Oprah Magazine

Dr. Kelly McGonigal is a health psychologist and a lecturer at the Stanford University Graduate School of Business, translating insights from psychology and neuroscience into practical strategies that support personal well-being and strengthen communities. She is the author of several books including The Willpower Instinct, The Upside of Stress and The Joy of Movement, which shows how and why movement is a powerful antidote to the modern epidemics of depression, anxiety and loneliness. Her 2013 TED talk “How to Make Stress Your Friend” is one of the most viewed TED talks of all time, and in 2020, Oprah Magazine named her the first ever O! Visionary, celebrating people whose groundbreaking way of seeing the world means a better future for us all.

This presentation will be followed by a moderated Q&A and a movement experience led by McGonigal.
