 Nic Marks Biography

Nic Marks’ journey started at the University of Cambridge where his studies ranging from mathematics to psychotherapy led him to his love of applied statistics. His findings have grounded his theories on well-being and happiness in hard evidence, garnering worldwide acclaim as well as the realization that happiness is a serious business.

He highlights the business case for taking happiness and well-being seriously while enlightening organizations as diverse as the World Development Movement, Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development and Coca-Cola. His accolades include Director magazine’s Top 10 Original Thinker and being featured in Forbes as one of 7 Most Powerful Ideas 2011.

In 2001, Marks founded the Centre for Well-Being at the New Economics Foundation (NEF) and went on to produce groundbreaking work, including the Five Ways to Well-Being (2008), the National Accounts of Well-Being (2009) and the Happy Planet Index (2006, 2009, 2012), which led to his prestigious 2010 TEDGlobal talk in Oxford.

He was an advisor to the UK Government Office for Science on the Well-Being Foresight Program and has written over 20 publications. In 2011, he authored one of the original three TED Books entitled The Happiness Manifesto.

Currently, Marks is director of Happiness Works, a business which creates science-based online tools helping organizations to become happier and more productive. He is also a board member at Action for Happiness and a fellow of NEF. He also works closely with Delivering Happiness, a U.S. social business set up by Tony Hsieh (who took Zappos.com from almost no sales to over $1 billion based on the founding principle of happy employees).

His work has been featured extensively in the media, including The Wall Street Journal, Wired, The Huffington Post and The Guardian.

Speaking Topics
  • A Happier Way of Life

    Happiness is a common human aspiration—what can the new emerging science of well-being teach us about how to live happier lives both now and in the future? Nic Marks shows how by understanding the dynamic nature of human well-being it allows us to think about what interventions we can make as individuals, organizations and institutions to create happier lives.

  • Happiness is a Serious Business

    Understanding employees’ well-being and happiness can have serious benefits for organizations. Based upon work carried out for the UK Government Office for Science, Nic Marks presents a dynamic model of organizational well-being that managers can easily understand. Evidence is cited from the latest research into positive psychology and systems theory about how enhancing well-being at work can improve not only the bottom line but also create a more resilient organization.

  • Measuring Progress from Quantity to Quality

    How should we understand progress when there are so many global challenges? The economic and political orthodoxy is that if economic growth is increasing, life must be getting better—but is this still true? Today, economic inequalities stubbornly persist both within nations and globally, and climate change looms over our tomorrows. How can we reimagine the progress of nations and the success of organizations? Nic Marks will suggest that we need to not only consider how we can create good lives that don’t cost the earth but also how we can measure progress towards that target.

  • Happiness Doesn’t Have to Cost the Earth

    Does thinking about promoting happiness make sense in an unjust unsustainable world? Are there not more serious issues to concentrate on? Nic Marks will argue that it is only by thinking about human well-being and happiness that we will unlock the solutions to the persistent problems we face. Positive emotions, including happiness, have evolved to help human beings grasp opportunities and are directly linked to creativity, innovation and resilience.

  • Five Ways to Happiness

    Nic Marks will present the five ways to well-being and happiness. The five ways were created for the UK Government Office of Science as the mental health equivalent of five-a-day. Simply messaged as an invitation for individuals to take positive actions, they have the potential to positively impact people’s lives whatever their circumstances. The five ways are Connect, Be Active, Take Notice, Keep Learning and Give. What would be the implications for your life if you did these more? What are the implications for organizations and even policymaking? The five ways open a new way of thinking about how to positively intervene in people’s lives.
