Patrick J. McGinnis | Speaker Biography

At some point in our lives, we have all experienced the dreaded 'FOMO' (Fear of Missing Out), but it was Patrick who actually coined the term while he was a student at Harvard Business School. Patrick is not only an international venture capitalist, but also an expert in decision-making and entrepreneurship. He has authored two books: "Fear of Missing Out: Practical Decision-Making in a World of Overwhelming Choice" and "The 10% Entrepreneur: Live Your Startup Dream Without Quitting Your Day Job." Additionally, he hosts the popular podcast FOMO Sapiens. Patrick is also the creator of another relevant term called "FOBO" or "fear of a better option." His contributions have been recognized by various media outlets such as the New York Times, The Financial Times, Inc. magazine, Boston magazine, MSNBC, and Cheddar.

Patrick is not only an inspiring speaker but also a brilliant mind. He proudly serves as a member of the Leadership Council at Sesame Workshop and is a devoted fan of Grover, who he believes is the Muppet with the most FOMO. If you are seeking to motivate your team to make better decisions or simply curious about Patrick's preference for Grover over Beaker, then don't let FOMO (or even FOBO) hold you back. Take the opportunity to learn from Patrick and level up your decision-making skills.
