Dan Pink is a popular writer on leadership, management and the changing world of work, which have earned him a regular place on the New York Times list of business best-selling authors. During the Clinton administration Daniel served on the White House staff, as chief speechwriter to Vice President Al Gore (1995–97) and as an aide to U.S. Labour Secretary Robert Reich. Dan later turned his workplace and managerial experience into a successful writing career.
In a “Whole New Mind” (Riverhead, 2005) he charts the rise of right-brained thinking in modern economies, outlining six essential characteristics for modern business. His next book “Drive” (Penguin, 2009) became a hit in the UK and featured on best-seller lists for: the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Publishers Weekly. In it he outlines the topic of human motivation, deconstructing conventional wisdom to put forward his own staged plan to greater productivity. His latest book “To Sell is Human” (Riverhead, 2012) argues that the persuasion and influence of sales roles pervades the contemporary world, seizing upon this he demonstrates how specific skill sets can boost performance across the board.
Dan’s articles have also featured in many publications, including Harvard Business Review, The New York Times, Fast Company and he maintains a position as contributing editor at Wired. His analysis on business trends has been featured on CNN, CNBC, ABC and NPR amongst others.
