How To Design Habits is a workshop that will teach you how to consistently build new habits as quickly as possible. After this interactive workshop, you will have the skills needed to immediately begin building new habits to help design a more productive and healthy life.

How To Design Habits is a science-backed approached to habit-building that works. It’s practical, effective and easy to put into practice. You will walk away with a clear framework on how to create new habits and understand the brain science behind why it works.

Habit formation is a skill and once you've learned how to successfully build them, you can intelligently apply it to improve any part of your life from individual health to professional development. It’s a transformative skill that can help you personally while also allowing you to have a powerful impact on the groups and organizations most important to you.

Workshop starts with a Meet & Drinks (6.30pm), we will finish at 8.30/9pm.


As a serial entrepreneur, Glen Lubbert began researching habit formation to help build a system to combat professional burnout. The toll of bootstrapping and building a multimillion dollar technology company while criss-crossing the United States required personal change. Drawing upon the success his coaches had with creating winning habits during his collegiate athletic career, he knew that understanding how to design habits would be essential to building a more sustainable work-life balance.

This led to researching the habits of top performers in the Silicon Valley community where he lives including talks and workshops at Yelp, AutoDesk, Twitter, UC Berkeley, and Stanford. He quickly learned that the same lessons culled from behavioral science research and applied psychology were being utilized as habit-forming persuasive technology in the most popular apps and devices we all use.

He believes learning about habit formation isn’t just transformative, it’s a necessary skill to navigate and thrive within our connected lifestyle.

Lubbert is certified in the Tiny Habits behavior change methodology from Stanford’s B.J. Fogg and has helped organizations and individuals successfully design new habits. He has studied mindfulness meditation with University of Massachusetts Medical School's Jon Kabat-Zinn and is an alum of the Mindful School’s Curriculum for educators. He’s Board Vice-President of the healthcare non-profit Project Inform, a product development specialist and a leader in the Quantified Self movement. He's given talks at conferences throughout the U.S. including at South-By-Southwest, TED Active, and Health 2.0. (
