Marcus Buckingham shows that cultivating people’s strengths, rather than improving their weaknesses, is the key to personal and organization success.
Marcus Buckingham is the author of two of the best-selling business books of all time, has two of Harvard Business Review’s most circulated, industry-changing cover articles, and has been the subject of in-depth profiles in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Forbes, Fortune, Fast Company, The Today Show, and The Oprah Winfrey Show. After spending two decades studying excellence at the Gallup Organization and co-creating the Strengthsfinder tool, he built his own Coaching + Education firm, The Marcus Buckingham Company. As CEO, he quickly turned it into a Human Capital Management company working with some of the world’s largest organizations. He is known as the world’s most prominent researcher on strengths and leadership at work, and today leads research at the ADP Research Institute. Challenging entrenched preconceptions about achievement to get to the core of what drives success, Marcus’s strengths-based approach is defining the future of work as we know it.
He is the author of nine books, and his latest release—Nine Lies About Work: A Freethinking Leader’s Guide to the Real World—takes an in-depth look at the lies that pervade our workplaces and the core truths that will help us change it for the better.

Marcus' energy and enthusiasm was truly contagious! His presentation was very entertaining, and he provided insight surrounding the areas of employee motivation and leadership.Golden Corral
We had the pleasure of hosting Marcus at our EntreLeadership Summit event in San Diego in 2019. In addition to hitting a homerun on his keynote for the 4000 small business owners in the audience, he also wowed our 250 VIP’s with a thought-provoking conversation at their Q&A lunch. He and his team were amazing, and we’re continuing to look for more opportunities to work with him again.
Our audience of 7500 business leaders and owners from more than 50 countries is a tough crowd to please. Over the years and during each of our events, they have heard multiple world class speakers and have a thirst for knowledge and actionable takeaways. Marcus Buckingham was rated as the best speaker of Nordic Business Forum 2018. He delivered with an outstanding energy, gave concrete examples for takeaways and left our audience with a smile as the last speaker of the day. Outstanding and memorable performance.
