Why we're unhappy -- the expectation gap | Nat Ware | TEDxKlagenfurt

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Why are we getting richer but not happier? Why do lottery winners not have sustained happiness? Why are bronze medalists often happier than silver medalists? “The first step to being happy is to understand why we’re often unhappy,” says economist and entrepreneur Nat Ware. In an entertaining and enlightening talk, Nat shows that we’re bad predictors of happiness, and explains why this is. We make decisions based on actual outcomes, Nat says, but our happiness depends on relative outcomes. We’ve been seduced into a way of life that conspires against our contentment by making it near impossible for reality to live up to our expectations. It is this expectation gap – the gap between our expectations and reality – that Nat argues is a key reason we’re unhappy. Nat challenges us to not relegate happiness to the world of art and the realm of hippies, but to start taking happiness seriously. The answer is not to simply lower our expectations, but rather to change the very way in which we make decisions.

Nat Ware is an economist, entrepreneur, and international development specialist. He is a Rhodes Scholar based at Oxford University, whose research focuses on social impact, poverty alleviation, and the economics of happiness. He is the Founder and CEO of 180 Degrees Consulting, the world’s largest university-based consultancy, with operations in 24 countries and over 4000 consultants worldwide. 180 Degrees has provided over US$50M worth of consulting services to non-profits and social enterprises so they can operate more effectively ( Nat has lectured on innovation, strategy and global business at The University of Sydney, and was awarded the Saïd Prize for Top MBA Student at Oxford. He is a frequent keynote speaker at international conferences and events, and has consulted for many of the world's largest foundations and non-profit organizations.

The Expectation Gap | Deborah Gilboa | TEDxCMU

Closing the expectation gap between what adults believe today's youth is capable of, and allowing them to create their own solutions to today (and tomorrow's) biggest challenges - closing the wealth gap, education gap and healthcare gap - will impact society greatly in the next 5-10 years.

Based on her work with families worldwide, Debroah Gilboa, MD's expertise has guided her towards her philosophy of having adults step back, so youth can step up.

How to Deal With Hypocritical Activists, Politicians, and Charities | Nat Ware | TEDxOxford

In this insightful talk, Nat explains why we shouldn't call out hypocrites, and what to do instead. Too often, Nat says, we use the hypocrisy of others as an excuse for inaction, and charity as an excuse to do anything. We target charitable messengers and avoid critiquing charitable messages. Nat argues that the exact opposite should be true. He explains that the people we call hypocrites often aren't actually hypocritical. Their hypocrisy is an illusion. As such, focussing on the hypocrisy of the messenger is inaccurate and misguided. Instead, Nat argues that we should focus on the validity of the message because this helps to maximize impact. We should not target charitable messengers, and critiquing charitable messages should no longer be taboo. Nat challenges us all to rebut the message not the messenger because what matters more than doing an action is the impact of that action. According to Nat, small minds rebut people but great minds rebut arguments!

Nat Ware is an entrepreneur, economist, and international development specialist. He is the Founder and CEO of 180 Degrees Consulting, the world's largest consultancy for non-profits and social enterprises, with branches in 28 countries and over 4000 consultants worldwide. Each year 180 Degrees works with hundreds of socially-conscious organizations to help them to operate more effectively and have a greater social impact ( Nat is a Rhodes Scholar, Goldman Sachs Global Leader, St Gallen Leader of Tomorrow, and World Economic Forum Global Shaper. He was the Top MBA Student at Oxford, received the Convocation Medal for Best All-Rounder at Sydney University, was the Top Economics and Business Student at Sydney University (1/4000 students), and has lectured the postgraduate course 'Innovation, Strategy and Global Business'.

Nat is committed to using entrepreneurial approaches and economic thinking to solve social and environmental challenges. He is a frequent keynote speaker at international conferences and events. His other TEDx talks are Why We're Unhappy: The Expectation Gap (

Letting go of expectations: Heather Marshall at TEDxGreenville 2014

In a search for her biological parents, this writer/teacher discovers a serenity in releasing the world around her from her own behavioral presumptions. Heather Marshall begins by telling us a story of her Scottish birth parents — they were young, too young for the age, and without options other than to give her up for adoption. Later, as an adult, as she was waiting to meet her birth mother, she had time to consider what her reaction would be if her mother was dying, obese, an ex-prostitute. How would she react to each of these situations? She dug deep and learned that expectations are like a third party in a relationship, constantly bouncing around in your head. Instead of dwelling on our expectations for others, we should allow ourselves to fully rest in the reality of the moment. Whatever expectations you have should be kept away from your relationships, she says. Only in this way can you engage in a truly loving relationship with others.

This talk was part of TEDxGreenville UNZIPPED, held April 11, 2014, at the Kroc Center in Greenville, South Carolina. For more information about Heather and her co-presenters, please visit

Why The Poor Don’t Deserve Your Pity | Fred Branson | TEDxOxford

In this thought-provoking talk Fred Branson, founder of award-winning charity Amantani, invites you to re-imagine the relationship between the world’s so-called poor and those in a position to help. It’s time, he suggests, to move away from pity and assumptions of cultural superiority, towards reciprocal connections based on respect and mutual understanding. In the groundbreaking Meet My World film campaign, Fred and the Amantani team have created an inspiring alternative… and it’s going global.

Fred Branson is the co-director of Amantani UK, established in 2007, as a charity, which works to improve the lives of Peruvian children. Since 2008, the charity has been working to bridge the gap between home and school for children living in Ccorca; a small Quechua district nestled high in the Andes of Southern Peru. They have established three Boarding Houses, which help over sixty children who used to walk up to four hours to get to school; this is time that they can now spend on improving their prospects for the future.
