The Phil Zimbardo keynotes speak about the power within all of us to be extraordinary, citing the positive ripple effect on others as one motivation.
Zimbardo graduated from Brooklyn College in 1954 with a triple major in psychology, sociology and anthropology. He received a M.S. and Ph.D from Yale University by 1959. Opting to stay at Yale, he became a professor from 1959 to 1960. However, he continued his career as a professor at New York University for seven years before moving to Columbia University. In true erratic fashion, he joined the Stanford University faculty in 1968, where he completed his famous prison study. During his lengthy career in academia, he became well-versed on subjects of sadistic behaviour and gender.
He continues to work as a professor at Stanford University and has written several introductory psychology books, including 'The Lucifer Effect' and 'The Time Paradox.' His role as a professor and researcher garnered widespread acclaim as his list of awards runs long and full. One of his awards includes the 'Dagmar and Vaclav Havel Foundation Vision Award' in 2005.
Since he is a seasoned expert on the human condition, the Phil Zimbardo keynotes inspire audiences to harness the capable hero within.
