David Gershon

David Gershon is the author of nine books, including bestseller Empowerment: The Art of Creating Your Life As You Want It, and the award-winning book Low Carbon Diet: A 30 Day Program to Lose 5000 Pounds. The founder and CEO of Empowerment Institute, he is one of the world's leading authorities on behavior change and large-scale transformation. At the height of the Cold War, he conceived and organized, in partnership with the United Nations Children's Fund and ABC Television, one of the planet's first major global initiatives, the First Earth Run, which engaged millions of people in the passing of a symbolic torch of peace around the world. Since that time, he has addressed issues ranging from environmental behavior change to organizational talent development, from emergency preparedness to low-income neighborhood revitalization. He has lectured at Harvard, MIT, and Duke, and served as an advisor to the Clinton White House and the United Nations on behavior change and sustainability issues.
