Amy Blankson


Amy Blankson is the co-founder of Goodthink and world’s leading expert on the connection between positive psychology and technology. Read on to hear about how Amy’s ‘Her’ moment eventually lead to her recognition by Presidents Clinton and Bush.

Amy’s pivotal moment came when she jokingly wrote a love poem to her iPhone to tease her husband. She then realized how strong her love-hate relationship with technology truly was. Simultaneously fascinated and frustrated with the ubiquity of technology, Amy began to research best practices for balancing productivity and well-being in the Digital Era. Since then, she’s been appointed by President Clinton to serve on the board of directors for the Corporation for National Service (which oversees AmeriCorps), and was named a Point of Light by Presidents Bush and Clinton.

Amy Blankson helps us discover how we can leverage the many technological advances, apps and gadgets in a way that helps us be more productive, while keeping our sanity and boosting our happiness in her TED talk.
