Adam Pervez is the founder and Chief Happiness Officer of Happiness Audit. Happiness Audit trains managers how to cultivate happier workplaces and helps companies measure their employees' happiness and well-being.
After working on Persian Gulf oil rigs and then coordinating rapid supply chain growth for a Danish wind power company, Adam left his comfortable corporate life at the age of 29 to find happiness. Addicted to travel, visiting over 70 countries to date, he set off on what he calls "The Happy Nomad Tour" - www.happinessplunge.com. He has volunteered his way around the world the past two years trying to give as much as he can while learning about culture, the human condition, and what binds us all together. Along the way he has lived in villages too small for Google Maps, meditated with pythons at a Buddhist temple in Thailand, been robbed a few times, discovered a love for nature and animals, slept on wooden pallets and kitchen tables, taken every form of transport imaginable, and received more love and generosity from strangers than he ever thought possible. He also found happiness, though it was inside himself the whole time.
Adam is from Cleveland, Ohio, USA. He studied electrical and computer engineering at The Ohio State University and has an MBA from IE Business School. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
