Share This Post

Belonging, Relationships, Community, Purpose, Speaking 


The world has changed quickly and changed radically. We no longer live in a world where we can just fend for ourselves. Today’s guest reminds us why community and relationships are so vital to give us a sense of belonging, resilience, and purpose. 

Joy can be dangerous. Marc Cordon, MPH gets this. A positive psychology coach and co-founder of The Joy Revolution™ Marc coaches misfit entrepreneurs and leaders who march to the beat of their own drum to claim their joy as they make a difference for others. He’s appeared on national television and radio and delivered two TEDx talks on positive psychology. The author of Beyond Resilient: The Coach’s Guide to Ecstatic Growth, Marc served as Associate Director of Health Promotion and Multicultural Programs & Services at Emory University where he developed programs on social justice, positive psychology, and community engagement. 

We’ll explore:  

  • Marc’s Filipino heritage. 
  • The amazing opportunity we have to embrace change right now. 
  • The importance of membership, community, and social justice. 
  • How to be a speaker who dares every day by embracing humanity and living with no regrets. 
  • Why you must turn on your microphone and speak your truth. 
  • What Marc learned about himself through this year’s Speakers Who Dare.
