BINDERY: The diaTribe Foundation presents Dan Pink’s CPS Lecture on When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing

Friday, February 16, 2018 - 7:30pm to 10:00pm

The Bindery hosts CPS Lectures (a program of The diaTribe Foundation) presenting Dan Pink in discussion about his new book When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing. Please join us!


When is the best time to start something new? Change jobs? Schedule a class? Get married? In answering these questions, Daniel Pink has written a book that in its first week of publication has already reached No. 2 on The New York Times’s bestsellers’ list. In that book, When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing, Dan shows us that timing is everything. He challenges the popular assumption that timing is an art and demonstrates how we can use it as a science. Using an impressive body of psychological, economic, and biological research, he provides us with insight into using time to our advantage. Dan also offers tips that emphasize timing as a vehicle to a successful and enjoyable life.


In his CPS lecture, Dan will discuss his book, which has also been featured in The Washington PostInc. and Business Insider.


JOIN US on Friday, February 16, at 7:30 pm for a CPS Lecture with Daniel Pink on the impact that timing can have on our daily lives. A #1 bestselling author of two other books, To Sell is Human and Drive, Dan will discuss how timing can be the key to success.
