Joy is not a bad word. You are not a Pollyanna if you are an optimist. As a society, we have to unlearn what we have been taught about “joy” because when put into action, joy is a propelling and powerful force for good. It has the power to feed our sense of purpose and also create an innovative company culture. In this insightful, interactive session, former SoulPancake CEO, Shabnam Mogharabi, will share practical tips and easy-to-implement learnings from her work creating uplifting and inspiring video content about what it takes to truly bring more joy into your life both personally and professionally. The session will dig into the lessons learned from the field of positive psychology, share videos about the importance of gratitude and finding your voice, and also get audiences participating in exercises that will shift their perspective on the infectious power of joy. 

In his 2018 letter to CEOs, BlackRock Chairman Larry Fink stated that in order for a company to survive, it must not only deliver financially but also show how it “makes a positive contribution to society.” The writing is on the wall – a company without purpose is a company without a plan… and without a future employee base, as more and more Millennials opt to work for companies who stand for something. SoulPancake has had purpose in its DNA since the beginning. In this leadership session, former SoulPancake CEO, Shabnam Mogharabi, will discuss her company’s mission and origin story and show case studies that illustrate why being powered by purpose not only creates impact but drives revenue. If you believe storytelling has the power to shape the world and give us meaning, then this session will motivate you to think differently about what you stand for as a company. 

Positive psychology tells us that finding your authentic voice and having a clear sense of self and identity are critical to feeling fulfilled as a human being. But how do you find your way to authenticity? How do you know what your true voice is? In this keynote, SoulPancake co-founder Shabnam Mogharabi will share insights around how to force yourself to feel awkward and uncomfortable in an effort to tab into your vulnerability, and ultimately the authentic personal voice and interpersonal connections that make us who we are. 

Founded by actor Rainn Wilson, SoulPancake is a place to explore life’s big questions and figure out what it means to be human. It’s a mission-driven company that has figured out a way to cut through the noise and clutter of content creation, to rise up as the leaders of meaningful entertainment. Named as one of Fast Company’s “Most Innovative Companies in Video” the team at SoulPancake has cracked the code to delivering inspiring stories, connecting with the hearts and minds of millennials, and activating an audience of over 7 Million fans and followers. Join former SoulPancake’s CEO, as she shares the secrets to the community engagement, fan retention, and creative secret sauce of SoulPancake.
