In collaboration with Thinking Digital we have been able to secure the world famous Dan Pink to talk at our next Think and a Drink in January.

Dan was last in Tyneside in May 2008 where he was the closing keynote speaker for the inaugural Thinking Digital Conference. He returned to the UK in July 2009 where he gave one of the star talks of the inaugural TEDGlobal Conference in Oxford. You can see his TEDTalk at..

Dan is the author of several provocative, bestselling books about the changing world of work. He’s touring the UK for a few days to speak about his new book, DRIVE: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us. In his new book, Dan exposes the mismatch between what science knows and what business does in terms of motivating people and how that affects every aspect of life.

We’re honoured that Dan has chosen to speak in Newcastle Gateshead during his short UK tour. And naturally, with a world class speaker we have procured a world class venue, The Sage Gateshead. The event will be in the Northern Rock Foundation Hall on the 26th January with registration commencing at 5pm and event starting at 6pm.
