Charles Montgomery, 2014 Keynote Speaker

Urban Experimentalist, Award-Winning Journalist, & Author of Happy City

Charles Montgomery looks for answers at the intersection of urban design and the new science of happiness. In psychology, neuroscience, and behavioral economics, and in cityscapes from Disneyland to Dubai, he explores the link between the ways we design our cities and the ways we think, feel, and act. His work demonstrates how each of us can change our own lives by changing our relationship with the cities we inhabit.




Thank you to the Leaders Breakfast International Benefactors.
