Topics and Speakers
GGSC presenters bring cutting edge discoveries, insights, and experiences to a wide variety of programs, drawing from the fields of psychology, education, business, and neuroscience. While each GGSC speaker can cover a range of topics and themes, we aim to connect presenters to engagements and topics that best align with their research and knowledge base.

About our themes:
The Greater Good identifies eleven building blocks of individual and community well-being — the behaviors that research suggests will support your health and happiness, and foster positive connections with other people. These "Keys to Well-Being" form the base of our speakers' presentations, within the context of each individual engagement. For more information on the "Keys to Well-Being", please visit:
Please provide a description of your organization and event. We are interested in the work you do, your mission, the purpose of your event, or any additional information you feel may be important to help us connect you to the most appropriate speaker and build a meaningful presentation.
