The Changing World of Work
Pink, author of four provocative books about the changing world of work, including the long-running New York Times best seller, A Whole New Mind, and the number one New York Times best seller, Drive, will be discussing his just-published book, To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Moving Others.
Pink will review some of the fascinating new findings of his latest research, and how they can apply to the HR function itself and the professionals who work in it.
Overview of the Forum
The Towers Watson HR Service Delivery Forum annually attracts more than 350 senior HR executives and professionals with HR service delivery, technology or operations responsibilities.
The 3-day event offers more than 50 sessions covering a broad range of topics related to the HR function, HR technology and HR service delivery.
Participants will have the opportunity to hear expert perspectives on what the future holds for HR service delivery and technology, and also to test-drive the latest HR technologies.

From the bestselling author of Drive and A Whole New Mind comes a surprising–and surprisingly useful–new book that explores the power of selling in our lives.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, one in nine Americans works in sales. Every day more than fifteen million people earn their keep by persuading someone else to make a purchase.
But dig deeper and a startling truth emerges:
Yes, one in nine Americans works in sales. But so do the other eight.
Whether we’re employees pitching colleagues on a new idea, entrepreneurs enticing funders to invest, or parents and teachers cajoling children to study, we spend our days trying to move others. Like it or not, we’re all in sales now.
To Sell Is Human offers a fresh look at the art and science of selling. As he did in Drive and A Whole New Mind, Daniel H. Pink draws on a rich trove of social science for his counterintuitive insights. He reveals the new ABCs of moving others (it’s no longer “Always Be Closing”), explains why extraverts don’t make the best salespeople, and shows how giving people an “off-ramp” for their actions can matter more than actually changing their minds.
Along the way, Pink describes the six successors to the elevator pitch, the three rules for understanding another’s perspective, the five frames that can make your message clearer and more persuasive, and much more. The result is a perceptive and practical book–one that will change how you see the world and transform what you do at work, at school, and at home.
