Dan Heath

Founder, Thinkwell
Author, The Power of Moments

Wednesday, September 12, 9:30 AM

In today’s digital marketing climate, it is more important than ever for brands to stand out and connect with consumers in a way that resonates—and remains—with them. Entrepreneur and New York Times best-selling author Dan Heath had that goal in mind when he co-wrote The Power of Moments. We are excited to welcome Dan as our CJU18 Guest Keynote speaker.

Dan is the co-author (along with his brother) of four of the most influential business books of the past decade: Made to Stick, Switch, Decisive, and the latest book, The Power of Moments, which explores why certain brief experiences can jolt, elevate and change us—and how we can learn to create these extraordinary moments in our life and work. All four were New York Times best-sellers. Together the Heath brothers' books have sold over two million copies worldwide and been translated into 33 languages.

CJU18 is largely focused on helping you connect with the right partners, so together you can connect with the right customers. You won’t want to miss this Guest Keynote as Dan discusses how to best engage customers with powerful moments that matter.
