Opening Keynote - Daniel Pink
The Science of Perfect Timing
We’ve all heard that “timing is everything.” The trouble is, we don’t know much about timing itself. Our business and professional lives present a never-ending stream of “when” decisions. However, we make them based on intuition and guesswork because we believe that timing is an art. In this provocative and entertaining keynote, New York Times bestselling author Daniel Pink shows that timing is a science – one we can use to make smarter decisions, enhance productivity, and boost the performance of FP&A organizations. Deeply researched and packed with takeaways, this keynote provides attendees tools to look at their work, organization, and lives, in fresh and invigorating ways.
