James Clear is a personal development keynote speaker and New York Times bestselling author ofAtomic Habits. His entertaining talks teach audiences about small habits, decision-making, and continuous improvement.
But James doesn’t merely report the research of others. He tries out the concepts for himself as he experiments with building better habits as an entrepreneur, writer, and weightlifter. In the end, his talks end up being one-part storytelling, one-part academic research, and one-part personal experiment, forming a colorful blend of inspirational stories, academic science, and hard-earned wisdom.
His thought leadership regularly appears in the New York Times, Entrepreneur, Business Insider, Medium, and Time, and he is a regular guest for CBS This Morning. In addition, he helps millions of visitors each month through his website and hundreds of thousands subscribe through his popular email newsletter.
He is a regular speaker at Fortune 500 companies and his work has been used by teams in the NFL, NBA, and MLB. Through his online course, The Habits Academy, Clear has taught more than 10,000 leaders, managers, coaches, and teachers how to improve.
Audiences come away from his talks learning how to:
- Build a system for getting 1% better every day.
- Break bad habits and stick to good ones.
- Avoid the common mistakes most people make when changing habits.
- Overcome a lack of motivation and willpower.
- Develop a stronger identity and believe in yourself.
- Make time for new habits (even when life gets crazy).
- Design an environment to make success easier.
- Make tiny, easy changes that deliver big results.
- Get back on track when you get off course.
- Put these ideas into practice in real life.
“James delivered a compelling presentation about habit change and personal productivity that will influence how our students stretch themselves to pursue new opportunities. His work is clear and actionable in a way that breaks down some of the most challenging barriers that we all have to overcome. I would highly recommend James to any organization seeking to accomplish great things.”

“James is a strong, confident facilitator and his message was easily understood by the audience. He did a great job teaching and facilitating a conversation with our group about habits. It was a great experience and our team got a lot of valuable ideas from the time spent.”
Laura blanchard - North America Training Manager at Lululemon
“Mastermind Talks is an invite-only event for high-level executives, CEOs, and startup founders. It’s a demanding and intelligent audience. I was lucky enough to have James lead a roundtable session at our event, and to date it has not only been our most attended roundtable, but the highest rated by our audience as well.
I am blessed to be in the position where I have access to a deep pool of some of the most well-known thought leaders of our time. When it comes to habits, James is the first expert that comes to mind. I would have James back at our event in a heartbeat. I can’t recommend working with him enough.”
