In her New York Times best-selling book Quiet, her record-smashing TED talk and her new Quiet Revolution company, Susan Cain shows us how to tap into our “quiet side” and transform the way we innovate, lead and communicate.
Co-founder of Quiet Revolution, one of Fast Company’s Most Creative People in Business, an accomplished corporate lawyer and negotiations consultant for clients such as JP Morgan, GE and Merrill Lynch and author of the award winning bestseller Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking–Susan Cain is a (quiet) force to be reckoned with. Deemed a “rock star” by the CEO of Steelcase, her groundbreaking presentations ring true to introverts and extroverts alike and inspire, among other things, a complete “reexamination of corporate structure and processes,” according to Fast Company magazine. A self-proclaimed introvert, she is soft-spoken yet powerful, witty, and incredibly engaging. Cain has received high praise for her presentations at Google, Microsoft, Harvard, West Point, the SEC and the U.S. Treasury and is the recipient of several awards, including the Toastmasters International Golden Gavel Award for Communication and Leadership, and Harvard Law School’s Celebration Award for Thought Leadership. Through her countless appearances in popular media, including The New York Times, The New Yorker, Harvard Business Review, Scientific American, Forbes, The Atlantic, The Wall Street Journal, CBS This Morning and NPR, Cain shows audiences how to tap into their “quiet side” and leverage talents typically associated with introverts. Cited by Bill Gates as delivering “one of his all-time favorite talks,” Susan Cain offers audiences a revolutionary perspective on the importance of creating, accessing and voicing our “softer” sides in her not-to-be-missed presentation that has broad implications for leadership, innovation and teamwork.
Susan Cain is the author of the bestsellers Quiet Power: The Secret Strengths of Introverts, and Quiet: The Power of Introverts in A World That Can’t Stop Talking, which has been translated into 40 languages, is in its seventh year on the New York Times best seller list, and was named the #1 best book of the year by Fast Company magazine, which also named Cain one of its Most Creative People in Business. LinkedIn named her the 6th Top Influencer in the world. Susan has partnered with Malcolm Gladwell, Adam Grant and Dan Pink to launch the Next Big Idea Book Club; they donate all their proceeds to children’s literacy programs. Her writing has appeared in the The New York Times, The Atlantic, The Wall Street Journal, and many other publications. Her record-smashing TED talk has been viewed over 30 million times on TED.com and YouTube combined, and was named by Bill Gates one of his all-time favorite talks. Cain has also spoken at Microsoft, Google, the U.S. Treasury, the S.E.C., Harvard, Yale, West Point and the US Naval Academy. She received Harvard Law School’s Celebration Award for Thought Leadership, the Toastmasters International Golden Gavel Award for Communication and Leadership, and was named one of the world’s top 50 Leadership and Management Experts by Inc. Magazine. She is an honors graduate of Princeton and Harvard Law School. She lives in the Hudson River Valley with her husband and two sons. Visit Cain and the Quiet Revolution at www.quietrev.com.

I cannot underscore what a terrific job you did with your talk and how much of a pleasure it was to have the opportunity to meet you in person. You have outlined an immensely important issue when it comes to promoting more effective personal relations and business success and we are in your debt for both discovering it and then marshalling such passionate and persuasive arguments for why the issue matters. Thank you as well for being willing to sign all the copies of your book that you did.
Within minutes, Susan Cain became one of my favorite speakers of all time. From the moment she stepped onto the WorkHuman stage, she displayed an undeniable range of knowledge, clarity, authenticity, and warmth. Best of all, she was the same in-person. No surprise, the feedback from our attendees was off the charts. I cannot recommend Susan highly enough and can’t wait to have her back at WorkHuman!Kevin Mullins, Vice President of Global Communications, Globoforce
