Dr. Kannan Gireesh is an established Psychiatrist and the Founder & CEO of Live Life Education Private Limited. Dr. Kannan Gireesh had an illustrious career in neuroscience and Psychiatry, where he is recognised internationally for his work on chid behaviour disorders of children of alcoholics. However one question kept haunting him – our education system is helping our children to be industry ready… but are they life ready? He witnessed the youth of the nation were overwhelmed with various problems such as academic pressure, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, stress related disorders, insomnia, dementia and suicidal tendencies and they were ill-equipped to overcome their mind-set barriers and achieve their fullest potential.
So he travelled around the world and personally worked with world renowned Harvard psychologist and trainers such as Jack Canfield, Brian Tracy, Clinton Swaine, Blair Singer, Dr. Daniel Amen and Prof. Michael Jenson, V. S. Ramachandran, Jim Collins, John C Maxwell and Daniel H Pink. Based on the knowledge gained, he formulated a transformative, experiential, and value based program that is scientifically based on the latest advancements in the field of neuroscience.
He then founded Live Life Education in April 2011, to help students identify their strengths and weakness and empower them to face challenges related with studies, stress, peer pressure, parental pressure and other adolescent issues.
He started off his programme by doing it for one child in his clinic and today gone on to impact the lives of more than 1 Lakh students, teachers and parents across INDIA.
He is a pioneer in building a social model around value based education in schools & Colleges.
He is on the Advisory Board of many top universities and closely works with the government in developing newer models for empowering youth through transformative education across INDIA.
He also writes extensively for The New Indian Express.
