At some point in our life, all of us have suffered from ‘FOMO’ (Fear of Missing Out) - but only Patrick coined the term - while a student at Harvard Business School. Patrick is an international venture capitalist and an authority on decision-making and entrepreneurship. He is the author of 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 and the host of the hit podcast FOMO Sapiens. Patrick is also the creator of another highly relevant decision-making term, “FOBO” or "fear of a better option" and has been featured as the creator of both terms in media outlets including the New York Times, The Financial Times, Inc. magazine, Boston magazine, MSNBC and Cheddar. An inspiring speaker and brilliant mind, Patrick is also a proud member of the Leadership Council at Sesame Workshop and an avid fan of Grover, who is clearly the Muppet with the most FOMO. If you’re looking to inspire your team to make better decisions or even to question how Patrick can prefer Grover over Beaker, then don’t suffer with FOMO (or even FOBO) and level up with Patrick.
