Barry Schwartz

Barry Schwartz: bestselling author, TED Talker (three times over), professor of psychology at Swarthmore, and…the first keynote presenter of this year’s Wharton Web Conference.

In his bestselling book “The Paradox of Choice,” Schwartz posits, contrary to popular belief, more choice does not necessarily equal more happiness. In fact, an overwhelming amount of choice can cause more problems than it solves though coming to the Wharton Web Conference is certainly a great choice.
With his most recent book “Practical Wisdom” Schwartz, and co-author Kenneth Sharpe, hope to awaken and engage an Aristotelian trait that is often in short supply: wisdom.

Barry Schwartz’s keynote takes place on Wednesday, July 13th at 9am, check out the posted schedule for the full list of workshops and sessions taking place at the Wharton Web Conference from July 12-14th in Philadelphia, PA.

    Barry Schwartz changed my life, and I channel him whenever I’m frozen with indecision in the aisle of a big box store. So happy (and jealous) to hear he’s coming to Wharton for the UI conference!
