Daniel Pink Named ISPA Speaker

The International Spa Association (ISPA) names Daniel Pink as the second day keynote speaker of the 2017 ISPA Conference & Expo at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, October 16 to 18, 2017. “We are honored to have Daniel Pink present as a keynote speaker at the ISPA Conference & Expo,” says president Lynne McNees. “His insights into human behavior and motivating others are sure to spark exceptional ways to inspire spa professionals and future leaders across the globe.” The announcement follows the news of Amy Cuddy as the opening day keynote presenter.

As a graduate of Northwestern University, Pink was a Truman Scholar before earning a juris doctorate from Yale Law School. He’s also received honorary doctorates from Georgetown University, the Pratt Institute, the Ringling College of Art and Design, and Westfield State University. Pink is the author of five books, including three long-running New York Times best-sellers, A Whole New Mind, Drive, and To Sell is Human. He was host and co-executive producer of Crowd Control, a television series about human behavior on the National Geographic Channel, as well as frequently appearing on NPR’s “Hidden Brain,” the PBS “NewsHour” and a number of other TV and radio networks across the globe.

Pink is also a contributing editor at Fast Company and Wired as well as a business columnist for The Sunday Telegraph. His articles and essays have also appeared in The New York Times, Harvard Business Review, The New Republic, Slate and more. Pink’s TED Talk, “The Puzzle of Motivation,” is one of the ten-most watched TED Talks of all time. Prior to his career as an author and public speaker, Pink worked in several positions in politics and government including serving from 1995 to 1997 as chief speechwriter to Vice President Al Gore.
