Nataly doesn’t just deliver a talk

She creates a transformative, emotional, and fueling experience for her audiences, opens their hearts and minds with her boldness, vulnerability, and straight talk, and activates them to practice science-backed skills so they can thrive!

Nataly Kogan is one of the leading global experts in optimizing your emotional fitness and elevating your leadership.

With a compelling life story of emigrating from Russia with her family, teaching herself to speak English by watching “Who’s the Boss” on repeat and holding top positions at McKinsey, Microsoft and 5 startups by the time she was 37, Nataly is a fascinating, one-of-a-kind keynote and TEDx speaker.

After years of chasing a non-existent state of nirvana in the corporate world, Nataly was not only unfulfilled, she suffered a debilitating burnout that led her to find a new way. Today, as a best-selling author and the CEO of Happier, Inc., Nataly helps thousands of Awesome Humans cultivate their emotional fitness and leadership skills.

Nataly’s unparalleled, positive, and transformative presentations are an amalgam of her science-backed skills, her business acumen, and her unique life experiences.

Nataly was the perfect keynote speaker and her ability to connect with our employees – in the room or by video from across the globe – was amazing. Every employee who attended took away a ‘nugget’ that stayed with them long after her session was over.
