Thought Leader Speaker Series

Tickets are now on sale for the Fort Collins Area Chamber of Commerce Thought Leader Speaker Series Featuring Dan Heath, best-selling author of Decisive, Switch, Made to Stick, and The Power of Moments.  Heath will speak from 9:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. on Friday, May 10, at the Hilton Fort Collins, 425 W Prospect Road.

The co-author of four New York Times best-selling books on business, Dan Heath offers a breadth of expertise to teach audiences at any level how to utilize the power of moments to manage and lead successful change, make communication stickier, and improve their decision-making skills.

Known for combining an entertaining style with useful insights, Dan Heath’s talks weave together research-based tools, fascinating stories, and a liberal dose of humor. Dan co-wrote four of the most-loved business books of the past decade: Made to Stick, Switch, Decisive, and their latest book, The Power of Moments, which 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. All four were New York Times best-sellers. Together, the Heath brothers’ books have sold over two million copies worldwide and been translated into 33 languages. The Heaths’ emphasis on practicality has given them a broad-ranging audience—their books have been praised by sources ranging from the Harvard Business Review, to the U.S. Army, to People magazine

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 graduate of the 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.
