About Bert Jacobs

Keynote speaker Bert Jacobs is co-founder and CEO (Chief Executive Optimist) of Life is Good, which spreads the power of optimism through inspiring art, a passionate community, and groundbreaking nonprofit work.

Bert and his brother John launched their business with $78 in their pockets, selling T-shirts in the streets of Boston and at college dorms up and down the East Coast. Today, Life is Good is a $100 million positive lifestyle brand sold by over 2,000 retailers across the US and Canada.


Bert was a HUGE success and people want him back! He made quite an impression on so many of our attendees and his presentation hit home for many folks. He is definitely real and people sensed it.

ASAE: The Center For Association Leadership

Absolutely outstanding, standing ovation was the least we could do to thank him! His passion and zest for life while telling his story is inspiring and has a unique universal message that caters to all!


In an auditorium filled with over 400 high school students, adults, and educators from across the US, Bert opened our hearts with his inspiring stories. His message of optimism and the power of kindness evoked a sense excitement, inspiration, and indeed bravery. We were honored to have partnered with Life is Good for the Emotion Revolution Summit and there is no doubt that his message moved everyone in the audience.

To say that we were more than thrilled with Bert's participation would be an understatement. There is no doubt that there are 1600 new huge fans of Life is good and Bert Jacobs. He made us laugh, cry, and everything in between he was fun, approachable and I especially appreciated his interest in our culture and company. He is truly one of a kind.

I can't express enough how great Bert was. After the event it was like escorting a rock star through the crowd. Everyone conveyed that he was the best speaker we've ever had. Bert was motivating, inspiring, and a great example of how to live.

Bert manages to balance the need for a polished and serious business speaker, with one that can share with audiences his admirable brand of success, all while conveying his genuine personal optimism. Hands- and minds-above, Bert was a standout for this conference.
