In 2017, I was asked to be a keynote speaker at the Craft + Commerce conference in Boise, Idaho. My talk was about the surprising power of small habits. This presentation is filled with practical suggestions on how to build habits that stick and achieve small wins. It is one of my most popular keynote speech topics.
Keynote Speaker on Habits and Continuous Improvement
As a keynote speaker, my goal is to share brilliant and interesting ideas in the most engaging way possible. Let me tell you a little bit more about me and my approach to keynote speaking.
I spend most of my time writing about self-improvement tips based on proven scientific research. In my speeches, I share the best strategies I have found for building good habits, breaking bad ones, and improving performance.
I’m the author of the New York Times bestseller, Atomic Habits, which has sold more than 15 million copies worldwide.
I love storytelling and I've written hundreds of interesting articles about people who have transformed their habits and maximized their potential. My keynote speeches are filled with the same engaging storytelling as my writing.
My top skill as a keynote speaker is taking complex topics and making them simple and practical. In each talk, I'll explain the science of habit change, human behavior, and high performance in a way that audiences can easily understand and actually use.
My ideas have been tested by a wide range of people. Over 8 million people read my articles each year and more than 2 million people subscribe to my weekly email newsletter. Hundreds of thousands of people follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
I teach ideas that I have tried myself. I am continually working on my productivity habits as a writer, on my exercise habits as a weightlifter, and on my creativity habits as a travel photographer in over 25 countries.

Testimonials and Praise
From small businesses to massive companies, I have delivered keynote speeches and trained thousands of leaders at top organizations around the world including Lululemon, Entrepreneur Magazine, Top Golf, and more.
“James Clear was amazing. A 10 out of 10. From the moment he showed up (on time) to the moment he left, he brought a peace and calm with him everywhere he went. He was flexible and worked well with the technicians to set up his presentation. He demonstrated humility and discipline in his approach all while allowing for flexibility. He had practiced his speaking and story telling so that it was flawless yet could roll with any adjustment needed to reach the audience. As for message, the message was spot on and relevant to a wide audience. He broke the message down simply and shared relevant stories to drive them home. You could tell he had plenty of stories that he didn't tell. The other incredible item was that he spoke as though he was delivering this important message for the first time. He wasn't tired of it. It was perfectly rehearsed but didn't sound rehearsed at all. James has a natural delivery style that allowed him to connect to every audience member at their level without feeling he had all the answers only that he had done and is doing the work himself. I would put James in front of any audience of any size.”
YPO (St. Louis Chapter)
“I am thrilled we were able to bring James’ content (and his book!) to our people of ESPN. The numbers we had today for this event have been the highest we’ve seen for a keynote speaker since we went 100% virtual. The amount of texts, emails and DM’s I got were unbelievable. The attendees absolutely loved the content!”
“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.”
CEO of Trilogy Education Services
“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.”
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.”
