"Daniel Pink's data-driven approach and energizing presence captured our employees' attention. Everyone found his talk both highly interesting and educational, with many piloting his ideas in their own work environments." Technology

A deep researcher and compelling communicator, Daniel Pink is one of the foremost business minds of our day. He is the author of seven books on business, work, creativity, and behavior including The New York Times bestsellers The Power of Regret, When, and A Whole New Mind — and the #1 New York Times bestsellers Drive and To Sell is Human. Pink’s newest book The Power of Regret: How Looking Backward Moves Us Forward (February 2022) explores how we can enlist our regrets to make smarter decisions, perform better, and deepen our sense of meaning and purpose.

Regret is not dangerous or abnormal, a deviation from the steady path to happiness. It is healthy and universal, an integral part of being human. Regret is also valuable. It clarifies. It instructs. Done right, it needn’t drag us down; it can lift us up.

Daniel Pink’s Speech Topics

  • Beyond Resilience: A New Path to a Strong Culture

    As the world emerges from the pandemic, organizations everywhere are reexamining their operations and rethinking their priorities. What do they stand for? How should they navigate what comes next? And how might they build cultures where people can do their best work and be their best selves? 


    In this provocative and practical presentation, #1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Pink offers a fresh set of strategies. Pink will draw on an unprecedented two-year study of our most misunderstood emotion: regret. He will show that ignoring or rejecting regrets is a colossal mistake. Instead, confronting regrets systematically can deliver an array of organizational benefits. It can sharpen leaders’ decisions, speed learning and development, and boost individual and team performance. 


    In particular, he will show how the four core regrets shared by people around world contain the seeds of a reimagined and more powerful corporate culture. By understanding what people regret the most, we can learn what they value the most – and that can help organizations of every kind attract top talent, deepen employee engagement, and strengthen loyalty and commitment.  


    With Pink’s trademark blend of big ideas and smart takeaways, compelling stories and sharp humor, this presentation provides an urgent and inspiring map for flourishing in unpredictable times. 


    You will learn: 

    • How to anticipate – and avoid – the most significant organizational regrets, 
    • How to transform existing regrets into a positive force and a coherent culture,  
    • Why regrets of inaction outnumber regrets of action – and how to enlist that insight to spark innovation, 
    • Why doing the right thing is more important to employees than most C-Suite executives understand – and why, in this fraught moment, being a good organization can pave the way to becoming a great organization.  
  • The Surprising Path to the Good Life

    How can we lead more satisfying personal and professional lives? As the world emerges from Covid, that question has become newly urgent for individuals and organizations alike. #1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Pink has found the answer in an unlikely place. 


    In this provocative and engaging presentation, Pink will reveal a new approach to working smarter and living better by examining our most understood emotion: regret. He will show why the ever-popular “No Regrets” philosophy is utter nonsense. Everyone has regrets. And if we handle our regrets strategically, Pink says, they can be one of the most powerful ways we have to sharpen our decisions, elevate our performance, and deepen our sense of meaning.  


    To tell his stories and share his insights, Pink will draw on two massive and unprecedented research projects: The American Regret Project, the largest sampling of U.S. attitudes on regret ever conducted, and the World Regret Survey, which has collected more than 16,000 regrets from people in 105 countries. The result is a presentation packed with big ideas, practical takeaways, and a dose of inspiration.  


    You will learn: 

    • The 4 core regrets that people around the world have – and what that teaches us about the good life,   
    • A science-based, 3-step process to convert your existing regrets into tools for increasing happiness and boosting performance,  
    • How simple, engaging techniques like “regret circles” and “failure resumes” can transform negative emotions into positive forces, 
    • The Regret Optimization Principle, which offers a systematic method for anticipating and avoiding future regrets.
