He has spoken at prestigious venues including the Museum at Eldridge Street, the New York Public Library, New York University, the Jewish Community Center of New York as well as at a score of private, paid speaking events.

He is currently touring the US giving speeches and book signings. He earned a BA in Ethics, Politics, and Economics from Yale College and an MBA from Yale School of Management.

Kaplan has worked in Marketing for over 15 years focused on content marketing/thought leadership, digital media and product strategy for publishing, financial and technology companies including Reader’s Digest, Barnes & Noble, American Express, McGraw-Hill, and Broadridge Financial Solutions.
