James Clear, one of the world’s leading experts on habit formation, is known for his ability to distil complex topics into simple behaviours that can be easily applied to daily life and work. In his book Atomic Habits, which spent over a year on the New York Times bestseller list, he draws on the most proven ideas from biology, psychology, and neuroscience to create an easy-to-understand guide for making good habits inevitable and bad habits impossible.
James is a supporter of the Against Malaria Foundation, donating five per cent of his income to support AMF in distributing nets to protect children, pregnant mothers, and families from mosquitos carrying malaria. It is one of the most cost-effective ways to extend life and fulfils his bigger mission to spread healthy habits and help others realize their full potential.

How can you see dramatic improvement in your personal and professional life? The natural impulse is to attempt big steps to improve. However, taking big steps often results in failure or only temporary gains. You rarely see the permanent results you want. The key to successful change is in small habits. In this entertaining talk, James Clear focuses on the science of small habits, how they work, and how their effects compound and multiply over time. Through research and personal stories, audiences will not only be entertained but also come away with practical strategies they can immediately apply in their personal and professional lives.
