Talks and Keynotes


Mark Anielski, Author, Speaker, Chief Well-being Officer

Mark is passionate about speaking about measuring well-being and happiness. With a professional background in both accounting and economics, he is an international renowned expert in measuring well-being. With the success of his first book, the award-winning, best-selling The Economics of Happiness: Building Genuine Wealth (2007), Mark has given hundreds of  keynote talks as well as customized coaching on how businesses, governments (from municipal to national), non-government organizations, universities, First Nations communities, and financial institutions (banks, impact investment trusts) can discover and build their ‘genuine wealth’ (well-being). His highly engaging, fun and interactive presentations are designed for audiences of business leaders, university students, government staff at all levels of government, communities, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) who are interested in becoming leaders in a new economic era that will be characterized by flourishing well-being.

Learn more from Mark’s many stories about how to measure well-being in his new book An Economy of Well-being: Common Sense Tools for Building Genuine Wealth and Happiness. You will learn about how to use the integrated five-capital asset accounting and performance assessment tools that are critical for building a well-being culture in your organization by measuring and incorporating well-being impact indicators in all aspects of your business and organization .

In addition to his passion for measuring what matters, Mark believes in the value of love, which he likes to define as concern for the well-being of the other. He believes the purpose of our lives and our work is to experience joy and meaning from our work and the many relationships we develop over our lifetime. Having been a student of First Nations and indigenous wisdom traditions, Mark believes that a good life is achieved when one has a healthy balance of material well-being, mental, physical, and spiritual well-being supported by enduring and flourishing relationships. He also believe that if we begin to measure what matters to our well-being, then the way we measure success will begin to shift and consciousness will increase.
