Chade-Meng Tan (Meng) is one of Google's earliest engineers. His job title at Google (which started as a joke) is Jolly Good Fellow, and his official job description is, "Enlighten minds, open hearts, create world peace". He led the creation of a groundbreaking mindfulness-based emotional intelligence course called Search Inside Yourself, and authored the New York Times bestselling book of the same name. He also co-founded the non-profit Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute (SIYLI, pronounced “silly”, of course). Meng is also Co-Chair of One Billion Acts of Peace, which has been nominated 7 times for the Nobel Peace Prize. He has spoken at TED, the United Nations and the White House. President Jimmy Carter and the Dalai Lama give him hugs. He made his mom proud.
