Keynote Speakers

Amy Cuddy


Harvard Business School

Social psychologist Amy Cuddy is a professor at Harvard Business School and Harvard School of Public Health, New York Times best-selling author, and Young Global Leader at the World Economic Forum. Focusing on the power of nonverbal behavior, prejudice and stereotyping, the delicate balance of trustworthiness and strength, and the ways in which people can affect their own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, she teaches thousands of people how to become more present, influential, and satisfied in their professional and personal lives.

But Cuddy wasn’t supposed to become a successful scientist. In fact, she wasn’t even supposed to finish her undergraduate degree. In her second year of college, Amy suffered a serious traumatic brain injury after being ejected from a car in a high-speed crash, and doctors said she would struggle to finish school. However, she went on to complete a bachelor’s degree magna cum laude, albeit four years later than her high school classmates, at the University of Colorado, and then a Master of Arts and a Ph.D. at Princeton University.

Her highly cited research has been published in top academic journals, including the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), Science, and Psychological Science, and covered by NPR, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Economist, The Guardian, Wired, Fast Company, and more. She speaks to audiences all around the world, from Fortune 100 companies, to tech start-ups, to nonprofits and academic institutions.

Her 2012 TED Talk, “Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are,” has been viewed more than 35 million times and is the second-most-viewed TED Talk of all time. The Guardian calls it one of 20 online talks that could change your life. Amy has written for the New York Times, New York magazine, Harvard Business Review and CNN.

Cuddy’s book Presence: Bringing Your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges (Little, Brown & Co.) is a New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Publisher’s Weekly, and Globe and Mail bestseller. As described in The New York Times Book Review, “Presence feels at once concrete and inspiring, simple but ambitious— above all, truly powerful.”

Cuddy grew up in Pennsylvania Dutch country, is a classically trained ballet dancer, and worked as a roller-skating waitress in college. She lives with her husband, Paul, and her son, Jonah. Together, they travel, fall in love with mountain ranges, discover, listen to, and sometimes attempt to make live music, rave about great diners and complain about bad coffee. Amy loves connecting—people with people, art with science, and ideas-from-here with ideas-from-there.
