Penny Locaso: Hacking Happiness
Founder & CEO, BKindred.com
Voted one of the most influential female entrepreneurs in Australia Penny is the world's first Happiness Hacker, on a mission to teach 10 million humans, by 2025, how to intentionally adapt in order to future-proof happiness.
Penny has created a world's first pedagogy and measurement tool designed to humanise the future through the amplification of the Intentional Adaptability Quotient™ of individuals and organisations.
Penny is a guest lecturer at the esteemed Singularity University at the NASA Research Centre in Silicon Valley. This position has her working alongside some of the best technology and Artificial Intelligence innovators in the world.
Partnering with corporations like Google, Singularity University, Mircosoft, Booking.com, SalesForce, Deloitte, KPMG, LuluLemon Athletica and Coca-Cola, Penny is transforming lives and organisations, by humanising the future.
Five years ago, Penny turned her life upside down. In a 7-month period, she left a 16-year career as an executive, relocated her family from Perth back to Melbourne, left an 18-year relationship, and started BKindred. When Penny couldn't find a global education company, that could skill her to future-proof her happiness, she went out and created one.
Penny advocates fear(less)ness and practices what she teaches. She went viral on LinkedIn (50,000+ views) and created a global movement after delivering a keynote in her bathing suit, to demonstrate the power of getting comfortable with discomfort.
Penny Locaso is an acclaimed TEDx and keynote speaker, having shared the stage with world renowned speakers including Dorie Clark, Gail Kelly, Yossi Ghinsberg, and Bernard Salt.
Penny has been published and quoted in the Huffington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, Daily Mail UK, Thrive Global, SmartCompany, Conscious Magazine, StartUp Smart, Smarter Magazine, The Age, Women's Agenda, The Sydney Morning Herald and NZ Entrepreneur.
