DR. MARISSA PEI "The Asian Oprah"
With a doctorate in organizational psychology, Dr. Marissa Pei has been speaking to and coaching hundreds of organizations, including Fortune 100 companies like Johnson & Johnson, Wells Fargo, AT&T, Mattel, UPS, and Bank of America for the past 21 years.
As a recovering over-achiever, she has parlayed her professional experience onto television as a “talking shrink head” on a number of ABC, Discovery, Learning Channel and Fox TV specials, commenting on why people do weird things at work and other interesting human dynamics. As host of her own radio show called “Take My Advice I'm Not Using It," her rapidly growing audience has earned her the title “the Asian Oprah.”
On her radio show, she talks about hope and positive life-affirming experiences, rejecting negative viewpoints that always end with “What’s wrong with people?” Instead she encourages people to live their lives with more joy and less stress, especially with these turbulent times, and answers the question “What is right with people?”
A true entrepreneur, Dr. Pei is also the best-selling author of two books “Organization Development and Consulting”, a regular graduate business text, and “Mommy what are Feelings”, a children´s book that her daughters illustrated when they were 5 and 7. And she has written songs and created a fashion line of pants and gifts that promote her motto: “Live, Love, Laugh, Learn.”
