This unique presentation on Uniting Your People through Service will unlock the secrets of the  Happiness Trifecta, showing the benefits of increasing Serotonin, Dopamine and Oxytocin in order to benefit your people and company in the following ways:

  • Serotonin stabilizes feelings of well-being & happiness. This enables our nervous system to communicate, which helps us digest, sleep, learn, remember, & reward ourselves. Serotonin increases overall happiness.
  • Dopamine is the Feel Good hormone that regulates behavior and the willingness to attain goals.  Our nervous system uses it to transmit messages between nerve cells. It's how we think & plan. Dopamine increases positive motivation.
  • Oxytocin promotes attachment & solidifies relationships by crystalizing emotional memories & reducing tension. It triggers protective instincts & improves social skills. Oxytocin creates deeper social bonds.

Meet James Beck

In his presentations, James Beck shows you how to achieve authentic happiness personally and professionally, improve your business culture, and grow relationships, through service to others.

James Beck had a life that seemed enviable… a Beverly Hills job… a place by the beach… but it felt empty and lacked purpose.

Unhappy with the direction life was going, he set out to find a new path, one with meaning and fulfillment. 

In 2011, he gave away his possessions and committed one year to serving someone in each state for three days, only asking that they pay-it-forward. 

By beginning each state with the question, “How can I help you?”, he explored how to live in a constant state of giving. He discovered that service and kindness fostered healthy, meaningful relationships, filling him with joy and happiness. 

His story highlights the immediate impact of his service to these individuals and families. As the pay-it-forward actions spread through the communities, the most significant transformation in people’s lives were revealed over time. 

James shares some of these blossoming ripple-effects in his presentations. Through stories, videos and photos, you’ll witness how one small act of kindness truly can change someone’s destiny.
