Dan Heath co-wrote three of the most-loved business books of the past decade: Made to Stick, Switch, and Decisive. All three were New York Times best-sellers. Together the Heath brothers' books have sold over two million copies worldwide and been translated into 33 languages. Their latest book, The Power of Moments, explores why certain brief experiences can jolt, elevate and change us—and how we can learn to create these extraordinary moments in our life and work.

Dan is a senior fellow at Duke University’s CASE center, which supports entrepreneurs who fight for social good. He is also an entrepreneur himself, having founded Thinkwell, an innovative education company that will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2017. A former case writer for Harvard Business School, Dan was named in 2013 to the Thinkers 50, a ranking of the world’s 50 most influential management thinkers, and also to Fast Company magazine’s list of the Most Creative People in Business. He has delivered keynotes or workshops for teachers, police chiefs, U.S. senators, interior designers, Navy admirals, health care leaders, marketers, ministers, and countless executive teams, across 26 countries on 6 continents. (He’s still waiting for that invitation from Antarctica.)
