Why you can’t miss Dan Heath

Dan has co-written some of the most-loved business books of the past decade, exploring 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.

At Workhuman Live, he’ll share the three forces that push us downstream, as well as the powerful levers we can use to start preventing problems before they happen. And he’ll do it all with a quick sense of humor and a dynamic energy. Do. Not. Miss. Him.

Dan is a senior fellow at Duke University’s CASE center, which supports entrepreneurs who fight for social good. He is also an entrepreneur himself, having founded Thinkwell, an innovative education company that will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2017. A former case writer for Harvard Business School, Dan was named in 2013 to the Thinkers 50, a ranking of the world’s 50 most influential management thinkers, and also to Fast Company magazine’s list of the Most Creative People in Business.

He has delivered keynotes or workshops for teachers, police chiefs, U.S. senators, interior designers, Navy admirals, healthcare leaders, marketers, ministers, and countless executive teams, across 26 countries on six continents. (He’s still waiting for that invitation from Antarctica.) Dan has a Master of Business Administration degree from the Harvard Business School, and a Bachelor of Arts degree from the Plan II Honors Program at the University of Texas at Austin. He lives in Durham, North Carolina.

Don’t miss Dan’s knowledge-dropping, working-upstream, future-planning keynote. It’ll be legendary.

Why you can’t miss Eric Mosley

As a pioneer of this movement, Eric has long believed that peer-to-peer recognition and positive reinforcement maximize human potential, inspiring people to do the best work of their lives because they feel seen, valued, and celebrated.

At the next Workhuman® Live, he’ll share how authentic human connections are the most powerful force in modern business when it comes to breakthrough outcomes and long-term gains – but that on a more profound level, they could also be the solution to deepening our societal bonds with each other on local and global levels.

What else? Eric regularly contributes to The Huffington Post and is a frequent contributor to publications including Forbes, Fast Company, and the Harvard Business Review on the topics of recognition and humanity in the workplace. And if you’re looking for a feel-good listen, he’s also been featured on Brené Brown’s Dare to Lead podcast.

He’s authored or co-authored three books, the latest being “Making Work Human.” Upon its release, New York Times bestselling author Adam Grant commented: “People are not the most important resource in your company. People are your company. Eric Mosley and Derek Irvine don’t just believe this – they’ve led a powerful movement to help leaders build organizations that put people first.” (We second and third this emotion.)

Who attends Workhuman Live?

HR and business leaders – CXOs, CHROs, people managers, culture curators and other professionals who recognise the value of bringing more humanity to today’s modern workplace.

What is Workhuman Live?

Workhuman Live is the outlier of HR conferences and the kind of positive environment where transformative ideas can have far-reaching influence. It’s a place where like-minded people come to connect, have conversations, contribute ideas and leave inspired to bring more humanity to their workplaces – and the world.

We go beyond HR and delve into the data behind gratitude, implementing human rights in the workplace, and other provocative issues around the future of work. It’s about usable, sharable, actionable content – and a village of experts, thought leaders, researchers, professors, executives, activists, authors, up-and-comers and changemakers who’ll use their knowledge to propel us to where we want to go.

What will I learn at Workhuman Live?

You’ll hear from global pioneers, like author Dan Heath on how to foster a culture that cultivates meaningful moments to drive this engagement, and Ed O’Boyle of Gallup and Workhuman’s Dr. Meisha-ann Martin on how strategic recognition programmes can yield ROI for both your people and your business.

Workhuman Live content is designed to be cutting-edge, timely, and data-driven. You’re here to learn, not hear something you’ve heard before. Our sessions are built with you in mind: What are your current priorities, struggles, and concerns at work? Expect to find yourself nodding along and bonding with fellow attendees over shared perspectives.

Where does the Workhuman Live Forum take place?

The inaugural event will be hosted at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge London. The hotel is adjacent to Westminster bridge on the South Bank, across the river from Big Ben and Parliament.

The venue is a 5-minute walk from Westminster Station and a 7-minute walk from Waterloo Station.

If you prefer to be dropped off, your car service can drop you off in front of building #200 on Westminster Bridge Road. For pickup, you can book cars through the hotel concierge. Uber is also prevalent, but the drivers may not know how to pull in because of the hotel’s location on the roundabout.

Parking spaces at the hotel are only available on a first-come, first-served basis, and you cannot pre-book a space prior to your arrival. The charge to park at the hotel is £65 per day. An alternative self-parking facility can be found at Britannia Car Park on Upper Marsh, which is a short walk away.

Does Workhuman offer discounted hotel rooms?

What is the “gratitude bar”?

The gratitude bar serves as the physical activation of Workhuman’s social recognition solution, promoting an atmosphere of gratitude and appreciation in the workplace. By enabling attendees to recognize each other through the exchange of personal messages and videos, it supports the building of culture and gratitude.

By attending and sharing recognition at the gratitude bar, you will support Workhuman’s donation to St Mungo’s – a leading UK homelessness charity. Your participation helps us support over 3,150 people every day as St Mungo’s works to end homelessness and rebuild lives.
