Symposium Speaker Bio – Chris Bailey
Productivity and Performance Expert | Bestselling Author, Hyperfocus and The Productivity Project
ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Chris Bailey gives audiences practical, tactical advice for becoming more productive. Called “the most productive man you’d ever hope to meet” by TED Talks, a “productivity mastermind” by Fast Company, and “a quirky and energetic guide through the productivity thicket” by the Harvard Business Review, Chris will transform how you and your audience think about productivity in the workplace and beyond.
Chris’ approach is unique; he believes there is no one-size-fits-all solution to becoming more productive. Instead, he has spent the last decade experimenting with every productivity tactic under the sun, separating what works from what doesn't. That experimentation ran the gambit from curious to ridiculous, and saw him living in total isolation for 10 days, using his smartphone for only an hour a day, working 90-hour weeks, and much more. Using what he found during these productivity experiments, Chris offers useful tidbits on how we can apply this advice to our daily lives in order to accomplish more.
Chris is the international bestselling author of Hyperfocus: How to Be More Productive in a World of Distraction, and The Productivity Project: Accomplishing More by Managing Your Time, Attention, and Energy. His books have been published in 18 languages. Chris’ productivity blog, A Life of Productivity, is read by more than 200,000 people worldwide each month. He has written hundreds of articles on productivity, and has garnered coverage in media as diverse as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, New York magazine, The Huffington Post, Harvard Business Review, Lifehacker, TED, BBC, Fortune, and Fast Company.
