'Live by Giving' & 'Unite your People'


Which keynote is right for your audience?

Both offer a similar message & use the lessons learned from a nationwide pay-it-forward adventure, but with a much different structure.

  • Story Focused - 'Live by Giving'

This keynote is designed for audiences that want to take an epic journey and be inspired to act by witnessing the results of the work.

  • Science Focused - 'Unite your People'

This keynote is designed for groups that want to focus on the scientific foundation of the work. It focuses on the psychology, sociology & neuroscience of the work.

Both keynotes are designed for general audiences. They both stand alone & work together for multi-day events. 



Live by Giving 

The Power of Giving Back



  • Pay less attention to yourself & your own problems which in turns reduces stress & anxiety 
  • Increase feel-good hormones creating happiness 
  • Create a perspective shift 
  • Overcome adversity with ease 
  • Create a sense of belonging 
  • Create Stronger Relationships
  • Make a Positive Impact
  • Develop a sense of purpose

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. 

This epic journey reveals the kind of life-changing transformation that only happens when you learn to Live by Giving. 

You’ll learn how to use a service mindset to build, grow, maintain, and repair relationships both personally and professionally.

You’ll learn that serving and encouraging others, serves and encourages your own soul. 

You’ll learn how to grow a healthy mindset and positive attitude to overcome adversity, making the most out of every circumstance. 

You’ll learn how being kind to others reduces stress and enables you to cope and overcome stressful situations. 


Unite your People

How Serving One Another Transforms People & Organizations


  • A scientifically proven way to transform a company culture
  • Secrets of pay-it-forward and how to develop resilience through service
  • An unstoppable way to overcome adversity and get other people to care
  • Leverage the power of kindness and gratitude to encourage servant leadership

 Growing a happy culture is exciting when you have tools that are backed by science, experience and inspiration that can elevate your people to new heights.

At a time when people are struggling to find their place in the world and at work, Transformative Culture Change Expert James Beck shows organizations how to cultivate greater joy and collaboration within the workplace that will inspire newfound happiness, significance and personal achievement. 

The key to this change is serving each other. Companies often do community service projects to build teams and cultivate positive brand awareness. But the most significant benefits of service remain between colleagues and that is currently an untapped resource. 

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.
