Pink is the author of several provocative books about the changing world of work. His latest, Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us, uses 50 years of behavioral science to overturn the conventional wisdom about human motivation and offer a more effective path to high performance. Drive is aNew York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Boston Globe, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, and Publishers Weekly bestseller — as well as a national bestseller in Japan and the United Kingdom. The book is being translated into 31 languages.

Many publications have published Pink’s articles, including the New York Times, Harvard Business Review, Fast Company and Wired, where he is a contributing editor. Pink also writes a monthly business column for the U.K. newspaper, The Sunday Telegraph, and has provided analysis of business trends on CNN, CNBC, ABC, NPR and other networks. He lectures to corporations, associations and universities around the world.

He received a B.A. from Northwestern University, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, and a J.D. from Yale Law School. Dan lives in Washington, D.C., with his wife and their three children.

The FPU Business Forum brings notable speakers to Fresno to teach and inspire the community on topics central to the university: leadership, ethics and values, creating healthy communities and organizations. The forum has become one of the largest events of its kind in Fresno, often attracting sold-out audiences.
