Aug 2, 2016 | Chamber News

Fort Collins, Colo. – Tickets are now on sale for the  Fort Collins Area Chamber of Commerce Thought Leader Speaker Series Featuring Charles Duhigg, best-selling author of The Power of Habit and Smarter Faster Better, who will speak from 9:30 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, September 21, 2016 at the Lincoln Center, 417 W. Magnolia St.

Charles Duhigg is a Pulitzer-prize winning New York Times investigative reporter, graduate of Yale College and Harvard Business School and a frequent contributor or guest on The Colbert Report, NPR’s This American Life, Frontline and other programs.  Duhigg has spoken to audiences as varied as MIT, the SC Johnson Company, the Aspen Institute and the Pasadena Art and Science Festival.

Duhigg’s first book, The Power of Habit, takes the reader to the thrilling edge of scientific discoveries that explain why habits exist and how they can be changed. With penetrating intelligence and an ability to distill vast amounts of information into engrossing narratives, Duhigg brings to life a whole new understanding of human nature and its potential for transformation.

In Smarter Faster Better, Duhigg applies the same relentless curiosity, deep reporting, and rich storytelling to explain how we can improve at the things we do. It’s a groundbreaking exploration of the science of productivity, one that can help anyone learn to succeed with less stress and struggle, and to get more done without sacrificing what we care about most—to become smarter, faster, and better at everything we do.
