GFOA is happy to announce that the opening keynote speaker for the 117th Annual Conference will be Eduardo Briceño. Eduardo is one of the world’s leading experts on growth mindset and workplace learning. He will speak to GFOA conference attendees about how to foster a growth mindset—the belief that one’s abilities and qualities can be developed—and about habits and systems that foster growth.
Most of us get stuck on a hamster wheel in work and life. We settle on familiar ways of working while the world around us changes in fast and unpredictable ways. Eduardo will help us reconnect with the love of exploration, experimentation, and discovery.
Eduardo has a bachelor’s degree in finance from the Wharton School and an MBA from Stanford, as well as degrees in chemical engineering and education. He is a Pahara-Aspen Fellow, a member of the Aspen Institute’s Global Leadership Network, and an inductee in the Happiness Hall of Fame. He has helped some of the world’s largest companies develop a culture of learning and high performance and his TED talks have been viewed over eight million times. Eduardo’s book, The Performance Paradox: Turning the Power of Mindset into Action, will be published by Penguin Random House in September.
