Tony Robbins

Tony Robbins is an entrepreneur, best-selling author, philanthropist and the nation's No. 1 life and business strategist.

For over decades more than 50 million people have enjoyed the warmth, humor and transformational power of his business and personal development events.

Author of six internationally bestselling books, including the recent New York Times No. 1 bestseller "Money: Master the Game" and "Unshakeable," Robbins has empowered more than 50 million people from 100 countries through his audio, video and life-training programs.

Robbins is the chairman of a holding company comprised of 40 privately held businesses with combined sales exceeding $5 billion a year. He has been honored by Accenture as one the Top 50 Business Intellectuals in the World"; by Harvard Business Press as one of the "Top 200 Business Gurus"; and by American Express as one of the "Top Six Business Leaders in the World" to coach its entrepreneurial clients. Fortune's recent cover article named him the "CEO Whisperer," and he has been named in the top 50 of Worth magazine's 100 most powerful people in global finance for three consecutive years.

Robbins' work has touched the lives of top entertainers — from Aerosmith and Green Day to Usher and Pitbull, as well as athletes like Serena Williams, Andre Agassi and the Gloden State Warriors. Billionaire business leaders seek his advice as well; hedge fund manager Paul Tudor Jones and Salesforce.com founder Marc Beinoff are among those grateful for his coaching

As a philanthropist, through his partnership with Feeding America, Robbins has provided more than 400 million meals in the last three years to those in need. He is on track to provide a billion meals over the next seven years. He has also initiated programs in more than 1,500 schools, 700 prisons and 50,000 service organizations and shelters. He provides fresh water to 250,000 people a day in India in order to fight waterborne diseases, the No. 1 killer of children in that country.
