July 28, 2010 - PRLog -- On Tuesday 14th September 2010, two of the world's most in-demand management thinkers Dan Pink and Marcus Buckingham will join 400 business leaders at the Hilton Deansgate in Manchester for a day of inspirational, thought-provoking learning and networking.

Taking delegates on a journey of self discovery and focussed on the theme of maximising your potential, Pink and Buckingham will explore what motivates us, how we can identify and capitalise on our strengths and how learning to think differently can radically improve our productivity.

Dan Pink

Daniel Pink is the author of a series of provocative, bestselling books on the changing world of work: Drive; A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future; The Adventures of Johnny Bunko: The Last Career Guide You'll Ever Need; and Free Agent Nation: The Future of Working for Yourself.

A Whole New Mind charts the rise of right-brain thinking in modern economies and describes the six abilities individuals and organisations must master in an outsourced, automated age. It is a long-running New York Times and BusinessWeek bestseller that has been translated into 19 languages.

His latest book Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us explores the science of motivation and outlines some surprising, counter-intuitive research about the strength of intrinsic, internal motivation. Dan's articles on business and technology appear in many publications, including the New York Times, Harvard Business Review, Fast Company, The Sunday Telegraph, and Wired, where he is a contributing editor. He has provided analysis of business trends on CNN, CNBC, ABC, NPR, and other networks in the US and abroad. He also lectures to corporations, associations and universities around the world on business transformation and the new workplace.

Dan served as chief speechwriter to Vice President Al Gore from 1995 to 1997 as well as a number of other significant government positions. He received a BA from Northwestern University and a JD from Yale Law School.
