We all know that timing is everything. Trouble is, we don’t know much about timing itself. Our business and professional lives present a never-ending stream of “when” decisions. But we make them based on intuition and guesswork. Timing, we believe, is an art. 

In this provocative and entertaining presentation, multiple New York Times bestselling author Daniel Pink will show that timing is a really a science – one we can use to make smarter decisions, enhance our productivity, and boost the performance of our organizations.

Drawing on a rich trove of research from dozens of fields, Pink will show:

  • How the hidden pattern of the day affects our analytic and creative capabilities – and how simple work rearrangements can improve our effectiveness,
  • Why breaks are more important than we realize and what the emerging science reveals about the kinds of breaks that are most restorative for the modern workplace,
  • Why reaching the midpoint of a project sometimes drags us down and other times fires us up – and how to tell the difference,
  • The four ways that endings shape our behavior and how to use endings to spark motivation, improve customer experiences, and deepen a sense of meaning and purpose in the workplace,
  • How groups synchronize in time – and how leaders can use the three rules of “synching fast and slow” to turbocharge team performance.

Deeply researched, packed with takeaways, and tailored to each audience, Pink’s presentation will leave you looking at your work, your organization, maybe even your life in fresh and invigorating ways.

Data increasingly plays a key role in politics, business and organizations across the world. David Plouffe discusses how the Obama campaign used data as never before to win an election in a tough environment. Data is, of course, available to everyone. Plouffe discusses how to integrate data throughout the organization, ensure that it is understood by decision makers and impacts all decisions, some of the tensions between modern data and traditional research, and how to blend the two. There is still an art to strategy and the tactics that flow from them, but increasingly, it is the science that leads the way.

History does repeat itself. Most major breakthroughs of the last century have been celebrated first by the consumers that benefit, and often scorned by the companies and regulators that wanted to protect the status quo. Academics refer to game-changing ideas as “disruptive innovation.” David Plouffe calls it “simple progress.” Having been at the forefront of the social media revolution with President Obama’s historic first campaign, Plouffe now assists Uber to spearhead reforms and strategies that will enable companies representing all industries to innovate and grasp opportunities that would otherwise be restricted by outdated rules and monopoly preservation. During his presentation, Plouffe explores the disruption happening all around us, the key ingredients for success and what other industries and areas are ripe for massive change. Any organization sensing that it possesses a greater potential for growth can benefit from his insight into the intersection of opportunity, what the customer demands, competition and innovation. Being on the front lines of new innovations in politics and business, Plouffe’s insights and rich stories will be of an interest to any organization—academic, private and non-profit—that is trying to change and not be the victim of massive disruption.
