The Nic Marks keynotes provide audiences an alternative method for measuring the well-being and happiness of today's populations. As a statistician, he's worked to create a new index to measure happiness, which can be applied to education, sustainable development for the future, health policy and economics. He created the Happy Planet Index, which takes into account both the happiness of countries in relation to the amount of resources used.

He earned his first degree in mathematics and management studies from Cambridge University. He then received his master's in Operational Research from Lancaster University. He is frequently hired to speak about his theory and the Happy Planet Index.
