He has authored over 15 books on the subject (several best-sellers, two have won national book awards). Seckel has lectured extensively throughout the world, at many of the world's most prestigious universities, as well as at many prestigious conferences and venues. Seckel serves on the Board of the Pete Conrad Foundation, KC Long-Distance Learning (Michael Milken's global on-line educational initiative), Blue World Alliance, and the Los Angeles ] Mayor's Clean-Tech Kitchen Cabinet. He is a member and contributor to John Brockman's Third Culture Group, The Edge, a by-invite only group of internationally known thinkers and achievers. Seckel is passionate about education, and especially thinking skills, innovation, and creativity, and developing ways to teach students how to think rather than just what to think. Recently, he moderated a panel with Arianna Huffington (Huffington Post), Jon Klein (President of CNN), Caprice Young (CEO, Milken's Knowledge Universe), Peter Hirshberg (CEO, Conversation Group) on the topic: "Are We Transitioning from an Age of Information into an Age of Misinformation? And, if so, what can we do about it." He is a former teaching assistant to Carl Sagan, and was a close student and friend of the late legendary Nobel Prize winning physicist Richard Feynman. He is also the founder and President of a successful private consulting company: The Super Smart Consulting Network. For people who don't just want smart, they want the super smart.
