About Nataly

Nataly stage yellow blazerNataly Kogan is a leading expert in optimizing your emotional fitness and elevating your leadership.

With a compelling life story of emigrating from Russia with her family, teaching herself to speak English by watching “Who’s the Boss” on repeat and holding top positions at McKinsey, Microsoft and 5 startups by the time she was 37, Nataly is a fascinating, one-of-a-kind keynote and TEDx speaker.

After years of chasing a non-existent state of nirvana in the corporate world, Nataly was not only unfulfilled, she suffered a debilitating burnout that led her to find a new way. Today, as a best-selling author of 3 books and the CEO of Happier, Inc., Nataly helps tens of thousands of Awesome Humans, leaders, and teams struggle less and thrive more in work and life.

Nataly’s unparalleled, positive, and transformative presentations are an amalgam of her science-backed skills, her business acumen, her unique life experiences and her contagious energy and creativity.
