Brene Brown

Author, Research Professor, Writer

The Brene Brown keynotes promote the belief that vulnerability does not equal weakness and that it in fact has the potential to do great things. Brown believes that the long accepted myth that being exposed somehow degrades an individual must be halted and replaced with a more positive outlook. As a Research Professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work, Brown spent years studying behavioral characteristics including courage, shame and vulnerability, allowing her an interesting perspective into human behavior.

Brown, a renowned world-wide speaker, was the recipient of the 'College's Outstanding Faculty Award,' for her teaching style and developed 'Connections,' a shame-easing curriculum designed for use by mental health professionals. Her insightful and warm speeches are among the most watched on TED.com, boasting over 5 million views.

Brown's academic and thought-provoking behavioral research was featured on and in various publications and media including 'Psychology Today' and 'CNN.' As a writer, Brown authored multiple books that discuss vulnerability, flaws and acceptance. Her titles include 'Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead' and 'Gifts of Imperfection.'

Being vulnerable is the most accurate representation of courage and bravery; this sentiment is echoed loudly throughout the Brene Brown keynotes.
