Success is Contagious 2018: How to (Finally!) Achieve Your New Year’s Resolution

January 4, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


Slide deck PDF:


Are “impossible” goals actually impossible?

At age 17, Ben Kaplan accomplished something most people believe to be unachievable: He set a goal to get admitted to Harvard and go for free — and he actually did it. He then set a New Year’s resolution to turn his self-published book into an international best seller — and that happened, too. In 2013, Ben did something unheard of in an industry ruled by big names — with no agency experience, he set his sights on launching a new kind of PR agency and scaling it into a major industry force. Currently, PR Hacker is a top 50 U.S. PR firm by revenue and the fastest growing viral agency in the world.

In this dynamic new presentation for 2018, Ben Kaplan — now a bestselling author, acclaimed speaker, and personal growth expert — will show you how the same principles that cause a cat video to go viral, a social cause to spread like wildfire, or an unknown startup to accumulate billions of users can help you accomplish your goals this year and grow personally and professionally like never before.

What if success wasn’t meant to be a one-hit wonder, but rather something that could replicate, spread, and grow? What if small wins in goal setting could lead organically to bigger victories? What if life weren’t a zero-sum game, but rather an algorithmic and data-driven journey with exponential rewards?

No matter your resolutions– if you’re trying to stick to that diet, save more money, or maximize your time to its full potential– this presentation will teach you how to spread lasting success to all areas of your life.

Maybe you’re looking to get more organized in 2018, but never quite built up the right system for that. Maybe you’ve reached a measure of success in your career but want to reach the next level in your career. Perhaps you’ve accelerated your professional life but neglected your health…. and want to fix that in 2018?

Whether you’re a lifelong learner, upwardly mobile professional, or hard-charging entrepreneur, Success is Contagious 2018: How to (Finally!) Achieve Your New Year’s Resolution will provide the information, insight, and inspiration to help you “go viral” in your everyday personal and professional life in 2018.
