Keynote Speaker: Happiness Expert, Venture Capitalist & Successful Tech Entrepreneur; Co-Founder of Happier

Nataly Kogan Biography

A leading expert on emotional fitness, Nataly Kogan is an entrepreneur, best-selling author, and keynote speaker on a mission to help millions of people embrace their Awesome Human, struggle less, and thrive more in work and life! Kogan immigrated to the US as a refugee from the former Soviet Union when she was 13 years old. Starting her American life in the projects and on welfare, she learned English by watching “Who’s the Boss?” on repeat.

She went on to reach the highest levels of success at McKinsey and Microsoft, as a Managing Director at a venture capital fund, and as founder or executive at 5 startups and tech companies. But after years of chasing a non-existent state of nirvana, Kogan suffered a debilitating burnout that led her to find a new way to live and work.

Today, she helps Awesome Humans break free from daily burnout, unleash their full human potential, and experience more joy and meaning by sharing her unboring science-backed Happier Method™ – and her signature positive energy! Kogan is a sought-after international keynote speaker and has appeared in hundreds of media outlets, including The Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, The New York Times, TEDx Boston, and SXSW.

She is the founder of Happier, Inc, and has worked with hundreds of top companies, teams, and leaders through her Happier @ Work and leadership programs. Kogan is the author of "HAPPIER NOW," "GRATITUDE DAILY," and "THE AWESOME HUMAN PROJECT" and hosts the Awesome Human Podcast that people call their “best-self hour”.

Kogan began painting when she turned 40 and is a self-taught abstract artist. She loves bright colors, overuses the word “awesome”, and is the funniest person in her family.
