Davis Nguyen

Davis Nguyen enjoys coaching other to succeed. Davis was raised by a single mother in one of the poorest neighborhoods in Atlanta before receiving full scholarships to Yale and Harvard Universities. He ultimately graduated from Yale with honors and a degree in economics, studying the tie between social connectedness and poverty.

Today, Davis works at Bain & Company helping leaders better their organizations; his results include working with a biotech company to develop a launch strategy for a life-saving drug, a tech company to find over $100 million in annual savings, and a low-income school district to improve their teacher retention. Davis aspires to use his personal and professional experiences to help others thrive.

Davis watched his first TED/TEDx video in 2010. To date, his favorite TED talk is The power of introverts by Susan Cain, a hero of his and whom he had the honor of working with for 2 years.
