Secrets of Aging Well - GET OUTSIDE

Martin Pazzani
Farmington, CT, USA

Martin Pazzani is a globe-trotting business executive, a fitness entrepreneur, and an avid hiker, trekker, and mountaineer. He has taken 100,000,000 uphill steps, across 7 continents, over 50 years.

Throughout his long business career, four decades of experience guiding some of the world's biggest brands, he’s worn many hats — strategist, chief marketing officer, CEO, company founder, advertising guy, management consultant, speaker, and burger flipper at McDonald’s. The companies have ranged from tiny startups to global mega-corporations in NYC, LA, Chicago, and London. Over an equally long period of time, he’s pursued peaks from Antarctica to Nepal and across Europe, Africa, and North and South America, and amassed unique, broad perspectives, and insights that few possess.

At age 66, he’s not slowing down one bit and currently juggles three start-ups in fitness, craft spirits, and strategic consulting. He stays active and youthful through hiking, trekking, climbing, and working out at the gym. His brain fitness company, Act!vate Brain & Body, is focused on the health and longevity of active agers and they are on a mission to radically improve the trajectory of aging.

Martin has given seminars, talks, and keynote speeches to thousands of Fortune 1000 executives, colleagues, and clients at corporate headquarters, retreats, at venues as varied as the Cannes Lions Ad Festival, The TED Conference in Monterrey, California, the Dubai Lynx Show, The Copacabana Palace in Rio de Janeiro, and New York’s Waldorf Astoria Hotel, and for companies as varied as American Express, American Distilling Institute, Amtrak, BlueCrossBlueShield, Buick, Foote, Cone & Belding, Functional Aging Institute, Kraft, SC Johnson, US Postal Service, Westfield, and many more.

His talks can teach, motivate, and inspire with a combination of gravitas, expertise, and joy.
