Meet Daniel Pink

With over 20 years experience as a journalist and writer covering all aspects of Behavioral Science Daniel Pink now gets to find out what really works. Drawing on academic theories, experiments and the secrets of retail and advertising, Daniel turns urban explorer in National Geographic's stand out new series 'Crowd Control.' Travelling the US, Daniel tackles everything from dirty restrooms to speeding motorists combining  big builds, high tech solutions  and hidden cameras in his quest to secretly change how we behave.


Author of 5 bestselling books about human behavior that have been translated into 34 languages. New York Post: "Pink's a gifted writer who turns even the heaviest scientific study into something digestible - and often amusing - without losing his intellectual punch."  Forbes: "Pink has a knack for teaching in such an entertaining way that you'll forget you are learning."


A popular speaker, Pink has delivered more than 1,000 lectures on his research to audiences in 36 countries. He has also taught classes and guest lectured at the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Virginia, Northwestern, and other universities in the US and abroad.


His TED talk on the science of motivation is one of the 10 most-watched TED talks of all time (nearly 10 million views).  In 2013, London-based Thinkers50 ranked him one of the top 15 business thinkers in the world.  When Oprah Winfrey was 2008's Commencement speaker at Stanford University, she bought 4,500 copies of his book A Whole New Mind and gave one to every graduating student, saying it was a book that everyone should read.
