Mental Wellness and Leadership Expert | Focus of World's Most Viral Human-Interest Story
Jordan Axani has a long track-record of bold acts that move and inspire people. Whether becoming one of the youngest people to bike across Canada, or being at the centre of the most viral human-interest story in the internet’s history (the tale of a Canadian man giving away a plane ticket that earned 4.5-billion media hits), he now uses that entrepreneurial and creative spark to attack the biggest problems facing our mental wellness.
His casual approach, unique background, and immense vulnerability has made Jordan a sought-after speaker on mental wellness and leadership. He shows organizations and individuals how to have simple, relatable, and actionable conversations on mental wellness and is a master at helping people take off the “masks” they wear around others. He helps companies learn how to nurture relationships that encourage connection, trust, and teamwork and build safe and desirable workplace cultures that attract and retain top talent.
In the past year, Jordan has spoken to over 250,000 people across North America and the Middle East. He is known for building attendees’ courage to stand up in front of their peers and share their true story, and for using anonymous technology in his talks so audiences can share their stories without fear of embarrassment or shame. His most popular program, “What’s Your Big Lie?”, has grown from a pilot with the RMCP to a live experience that tours internationally and has landed partnerships with top-tier startups, healthcare providers, and campuses to design innovative mental health programming.
Jordan is currently a Partner at Shift Collab, a therapy and mental health education firm that supports high-profile leaders and their organizations, and also co-hosts Impostercast, a top-rated podcast about faking it.
