Now as a bestselling author and Harvard Medical School visiting scholar, Suneel has taken his mission one step further –helping organizations reach sustainable peak performance by bolstering their people’s emotional resilience.

Suneel is a business survivor and the author of the international bestselling book Backable(2020). The book is rooted in his inner journey from twice-failed entrepreneur to becoming a leader behind two IPOs and being named “The New Face of Innovation” by the New York Stock Exchange. The book reveals the mindset shifts and hidden habits of people who are extraordinary at pushing new ideas forward.

His next book, due in 2023, will unveil the habits of high-pressure performers, explaining why some people burn out, while others reach new levels of resilience, productivity, and momentum.

As visiting scholar at Harvard Medical School, Suneel researches and teaches the interconnection between inner well-being and outer leadership. He is also emissary for Gross National Happiness between the United States and the Kingdom of Bhutan.

  • “I didn’t know what to expect and I’m still in awe. This wasn’t just a keynote -it was a unique experience. I’d strongly recommend that every emerging leader go through this experience; it’s inspirational and transformative.”

    Vice President of Human Resources HARMAN International
  • “Suneel Gupta is one of the highest-rated speakers we’ve ever had. His talk was filled with great insights on the essential ingredients for successfully accomplishing your goals by winning support from others along the way. I plan to put many of his ideas into action to become a more “backable” leader, and I know others who heard his talk plan to do the same. But, beyond all of the practical lessons, the lasting impression our audience had was that Suneel is a genuine, caring person who understands leadership challenges. His stories were filled with humility, empathy, and emotion, traits we rarely encounter from our keynote presenters. If you’re looking for an excellent talk delivered with a strong sense of humanity,I recommend Suneel Gupta.”

    President, Association for Advancing Automation
  • “Suneel is a true master of storytelling and his message was delivered to our audience at just the right time. Creating engagement at annual conferences can be tough. But when you couple that with a virtual conference environment, connecting with the audience is no easy feat. Suneel’s keynote on beating burnout to drive innovation was timely and his ability to draw in the audience resulted in the highest engagement numbers of all the sessions for our event. Some speakers can be too in the weeds, while others tend to speak over attendees' heads. Suneel provided the perfect mix of actionable insights with passion for the topic. Attendees left refreshed, energized, and appreciative of the experience.”

Can we have you back next year?”

    Executive Director State Association of County Retirement Systems
  • Suneel was a keynote speaker at our most recent #AssetMark #GoldForum conference, and he was incredible! Suneel was able to share key insights from his best selling book "Backable", while incorporating those insights with his personal experiences.

We loved his energy, story telling and spirit! Thank you Suneel!!

    President, AssetMark
