Speaker Dr. Jeremy Goldberg is a scientist trying to start a kindness revolution in his spare time called Long Distance Love Bombs. Jeremy completed a Ph.D. in behavior change. In particular, he examined how attitudes affect action and how we can communicate in order to inspire greater and also lasting change. He has presented his research at international retreats, conferences, and online workshops.
Jeremy started small by leaving little handwritten notes of encouragement and inspiration everywhere he went, then began sharing his writing on social media. His ideas have started a wave of kindness that helps people find the strength to fight heartache, alcoholism, depression, and betrayal. Jeremy is active on social media, with more than 40k followers on Instagram (@LongDistanceLoveBombs) and 20k on Facebook.
He learned why we do the things we do, and perhaps even more importantly how our minds seem to affect our lives through the choices we make. Or those we don’t make. Just one negative belief is enough to stop people from taking a chance, trusting in abilities, and making things happen. That is worth giving some thought.
As a keynote speaker Dr. Jeremy Goldberg seeks to combine kindness, gratitude and vulnerability to achieve connections and also empathy between people. He uses science inorder to establish better habits in a far more productive manner, helping people change their own lives for the better.See keynotes with Dr. Jeremy Goldberg
Doubt and negative thoughts often play the role of self-censorship, stopping people from doing what they would really like and indeed might be able to do. In his talks and presentations Dr. Jeremy Goldberg seeks to help people improve their thoughts habits in order to enable them a better path towards achievement, success and ultimately personal happiness.
In this talk, Dr. Goldberg will share some of the scientifically-proven, heart-centered habits and routines to help you start the right rituals, stick to your goals, and radically change your life. When this talk is done, you’ll know what you really want to do, you’ll recognize why you’re getting in your own way, and you’ll understand how you can start to make more progress with more fun moving forward. If distraction, procrastination, or imposter syndrome are concerns for you or your company, this is the talk for you.
We all know that the best things in life come from doing hard things, but we still don’t want to do them. Because hard things are hard, right? In this inspiring motivational talk, Dr. Goldberg will help you clarify what you really desire, accept where you are, and own what needs to happen next. Using targeted exercises designed to help you gain new perspectives on life and yourself, he will teach you the tricks you need to stop talking about it and instead start actually doing hard things.

"During your talk, by the turn of a phase, the telling of a short story, asking people to think outside their own box of sadness or grief, you create that “Aha” moment for people when the light goes on, a perception is changed, bad thoughts turn to good thoughts, and in the blink of an eye... you are a magician! It’s not a sleight of hand, but a sleight of words, experiences shared, and comfort provided in the most caring, genuine, and generous manner. I am so grateful to have made your acquaintance and for a brief moment in time, to have been amazed by your magic."
"You make me think way beyond what could possibly be comfortable and that is a good thing - a VERY good thing. Thank you. You are changing people's worlds."
What if kindness was cool? What if compassion was popular, and what if consoling a stranger was expected, and not the exception?
What if we lived in a world where every time someone was sad or lonely, depressed or despondent, they knew that help was hiding in the heart of everyone around them? What if people were obsessed with giving selflessly instead of taking selfies?
What kind of world would that be, and how do we get there?
I’m not sure, but I want to find out.
I am trying to make kindness cool, and I’m trying to build a community that connects with one another, a community that proves the world is filled with good people doing good things and that you can do them too. I’m trying to help people feel less alone.
Because the world breaks my heart every day.
We live in world where vulnerability is rare, a world where compassion is endangered and basic human connection is nearly extinct, a world where kindness has become a revolutionary act, and that’s tragic, but we should never waste a crisis.
Have you ever felt lonely?
Have you ever been scared?
Have you ever felt like giving up?
We all have. We’ve all been there before, and we’ll be there again, and when we’re there we need help. The biggest truth and tragedy in life is that we are all uniquely the same. We’ve all needed a helping hand or a hug or a kind word.
So what are you going to do about it?
Will you help a stranger?
Will you be brave?
Will you be kind?
I recently gave a TEDx talk and I answered some of these questions, but my talk is not just me talking. It’s my heart and soul and passion presented on a platter and served up raw, fiery, and fierce.
It’s who I am and what I bleed, everything I stand for and strive towards, a rallying cry, a rebel yell, a manifesto and a creed, a kicking, screaming plea to please help change the things I see. I believe that we must improve the world, I believe that we will do it together, and I believe that kindness has a pivotal role to play in that process.
Life is hard and it’s scary and it’s overwhelming, and I feel it every day. We all do. But if we can face that fear together, something beautiful will happen: Things will change, life will improve, and the world will slowly get better.
So let’s do that.

Do you think your scientific background helps you with your goal of achieving a kindness revolution?
Absolutely. I spent five years exploring human behavior, including how and why our beliefs affect our actions. A formal understanding of how we operate is useful when trying to create new ways of thinking, being, and living. The scientific process is also grounded in questioning existing paradigms and problems, so this is also helpful when seeking to change things. Why do we do the things we do? What actions can we take today to help improve ourselves and the world around us? Once we understand the foundation of who we are and why things work this way, we can work together to brainstorm new ideas and put these into action.
How will you know you’ve achieved the change you want to see in the world?
If we want to change the world, we have to change ourselves. If we want the world to be better, we have to be better, all of us, individually, every day. So, this is my mission – to walk the talk, to improve 1% every single day, to be braver and kinder and more authentic and accepting. These are my priorities. These are the ways I know I’m making a difference. Because the world needs more people willing to admit their imperfections, to own their truths, to share and show that it’s okay be on our way to where we want to go.
We are all perfectly imperfect, incomplete yet whole, and we sometimes judge ourselves so harshly. Additionally, I believe that we find what we seek. So, if I look for reasons for the world to be kinder, more compassionate, and more connected, then that’s the world I’ll see. Overall, it’s two separate yet connected actions: Inspiring the change and noticing it.
Where do you think the apathy in our society comes from?
I think it comes from forgetting that we are 99.9% the same as every single person we see. I think apathy comes from feeling overwhelmed and powerless. I think it comes from a feeling of loneliness and disconnectedness. We forget that we are social creatures who are inherently good at heart. We forget that we are all more alike than we are different. And so we bury our hurts in our hearts, we don’t speak our mind, and we neglect to value our true selves and desires. Largely, I think apathy is just a socially approved and accepted way to deal with the hurt and disappointment caused by our culture, a culture that creates and reinforces competition, mistrust, and shame in all of us.
What is your favourite outlet for expressing your thoughts?
I write. I’m a words guy. I believe in mantras and messages. I believe that a single sentence can change a life. I believe that a paragraph can shape an argument and a page of prose could start a revolution. I’m active on social media and am always sharing my heart with the world, either via written articles online, speaking around the world, or at events and retreats.
Who or what inspires you most?
I’m inspired by everything. I like to say I’m on a perpetual quest for silver linings. There is so much beauty and encouragement all around us, in the sky and the seas, in strangers eyes, in memories and moments. I’m inspired by authentic connection and truth telling. I love love, and what it does to people. I adore personal stories of overcoming the odds, of not giving up, of choosing to believe and keep going.
Do you have a favourite experience from your speaking career?
I’ve had a few people tell me, with tears in their eyes, that they connected with my story in a real and profound way. They thanked me for sharing a piece of myself because it reminded them of who they truly are and want to be. Any time I can have real, authentic moments with the audience, that’s a favorite experience.
