Virtual Market Dinner 2021: 3 Ways to Cultivate a Positive Mindset for 2021 


Join CFA Society Boston on Thursday, March 11 as we reimagine the Annual Market Dinner in a virtual setting and welcome Neil Pasricha, author, speaker, awesome expert, and happiness guru. In Neil’s presentation “3 Ways to Cultivate a Positive Mindset for 2021” he will respond to the drain of the pandemic and the unprecedented change and challenge we all faced this past year. He will share simple, research-backed tools to help cultivate a positive mindset, build resilience, and ultimately lift performance.  You will leave with clear daily practices you can use to achieve your biggest goals.  

CFA Society Boston is excited to bring you this informative and uplifting speaker to support our members as we navigate our way through 2021 and beyond. Though this Market Dinner will be unlike any other, we are bringing new ways to engage and network, including a special Marker Dinner Giftbox featuring our keynote’s latest book, The Book of Awesome, resources and collaborative entertainment. 

Speaker Bio: 

Neil Pasricha is the author of seven books including: The Book of Awesome, a spinning rolodex of simple pleasures based on his 100-million-hit, award-winning blog 1000 Awesome Things, The Happiness Equation, originally written as a 300-page love letter to his unborn son on how to live a happy life, Awesome Is Everywhere, an interactive introduction to guided meditation for children, and You Are Awesome, a nine- step guide to building resilience told through stories and research. Neil’s books are New York Times and #1 international bestsellers, have spent over 200 weeks on bestseller lists, and have sold millions of copies across dozens of languages. 

Neil also gives over 50 speeches a year at places like Harvard, SXSW, and Shopify. His first TED talk “The 3 A’s of Awesome” is ranked one of the 10 Most Inspiring of all time and his second is called “How do you maximize your tiny, short life?”, an artistic side-project called the world’s first TED Listen, composed entirely of questions. Neil gave the most attended feature keynote at SXSW 2019 called “Building trust in distrustful times”. 

Neil hosts an Apple “Best of” iTunes Top 100 podcast called 3 Books where he is on an ‘epic 15-year- long quest to uncover the 1000 most formative books in the world.’ Each of the 333 chapters unpacks the 3 most formative books of an unique or inspiring individual like Judy Blume, Malcolm Gladwell, Chris Anderson of TED, the world’s greatest Uber driver, or David Sedaris. The show is recorded live at the guest’s preferred location and is 100% ad, sponsor, and interruption free. 3 Books publishes on the lunar calendar with each chapter dropping on the exact minute of every single new moon and full moon up to September 1, 2031 at 5:52 am. 

Neil’s pro bono work focuses on literacy, bibliophilia, and mental health. Neil has degrees from Queen’s University and Harvard Business School. Neil lives in Toronto with his wife Leslie and their three sons.
