Author Dan Pink will present “A Whole New Mind,” a lecture on economic transformation and the new workplace, at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 28, in Herrick Hall (500 West Loop). The event is free and open to the public.
Pink’s best-selling book, “A Whole New Mind,” argues that consumption, outsourcing and technology are the primary forces affecting the future of careers and economies. Pink believes the keys to success in the “Conceptual Age” are in developing and cultivating six senses: design, story, symphony, empathy, play and meaning. Pink is a contributing editor at Wired magazine and has written articles and essays for The New York Times, Harvard Business Review, Salon, Slate, and Fast Company. He also has as served as chief speechwriter for former Vice President Al Gore.
This event is sponsored by the Denison’s Lecture Series, Vail Series, Burton D. Morgan Program in Liberal Arts and Entrepreneurship Education, Department of Studio Art, Organizational Studies Program, and the Denison Campus Theme Series. For more information, contact 740-587-8579.
