Live keynotes / virtual keynotes

Steven Kotler teaches individuals and organizations how to unlock their real potential. President Bill Clinton once called his work “a visionary roadmap for change,” while audiences have described him as: “The coolest professor you’ll ever have.” His research centers on the neurobiology of peak performance—essentially what happens in the brain and the body when humans are performing at their very best—with particular attention paid to the peak performance state of flow.

With his evidence-based methodology, Kotler has trained over 250,000 people, including the U.S. Navy SEALs and Olympic athletes, executives at Fortune 100 companies such as Google, Cisco, and Microsoft, and the general public. In his keynotes, Kotler’s mission is to help audiences understand that there are practical and pragmatic steps that anyone or any organization can take to overcome their limitations, exceed their expectations and get the absolute most out of this life.

An international pioneer in the fields of innovation, technology and human performance, Kotler has spoken to and consulted with everyone from Fortune 100 companies to the US Special Forces. He explores the mental tactics utilized by high performing organizations like Google and the Navy Seals, and details how today’s top entrepreneurs—Larry Page, Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson, and Elon Musk—have learned to think at scale and perform at speed—the core requirements for creative disruption.

These workshops (live or digitally delivered) focus on going beyond the overview of peak performance and ventures into the conversation: “So how can this stuff work for my organization… and what exactly should we do next?”

This could mean you’re a copywriter, a scientist hunting a breakthrough, a coder designing software, an entrepreneur dreaming up your next start-up, a writer aching to finish that novel, or a landscape painter trapped in the life of an accountant—all that matters is that generating novel ideas (and putting those ideas out in the world in some form or another) is core to your life and purpose. In this 32 lesson masterclass Steven gives you everything you need to know (from the science of creativity to the maps, models & virus scans the best creatives use) to amplify your creative output and finally achieve your boldest goals.
