Keynote speeches by Neil Gaiman are entertaining and enlightening and focus on the achievement of life goals as adventures rather than as work.
The critically acclaimed writer has been awarded countless awards for his graphic novels, fiction novels and screenplays including the 2009 Newbery Medal and 2010 Carnegie Medal in Literature -- the first author to have been awarded both of these medals for the same novel.
Raised by a Scientologist, the author always knew that he wanted to write and chose to forgo post-secondary education in favor of beginning his writing career directly after high school.
His first two novels were biographies of the band Duran Duran and Douglas Adams, the author of 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.' His more famous works include the novel, and the accompanying screenplay for, Coraline and the comic series 'Sandman.'
The power that taking pride in one's work and pursuing one's dreams can have on one's overall content with life is often the resounding takeaway garnered from keynote speeches by Neil Gaiman.
