Ya, Indeed! Dan's great! I was at Dan's presentation at Kansai Gaidai and I was blown away by his presentation skills and his topics (which I haven't heard about before). Dan is a Great Speaker! I was one of the lucky one to get one of his books and read it within a week. Excellent Book! A must to all students entering the labor market for the years to come. It did open my mind to new work fields. Great work to Garr to get Dan from his busy schedule to come and give a speach at Kansai Gaidai!

Garr -- Can't imagine a better combo of voices and imaginations than what you and Dan provided your students. Whether working with school design/architecture professionals, educators, or the many folks pushing hard on the future of learning curve, I routinely point to Presentation Zen and A Whole New Mind as a way to re-map the way we engage the collaborative learning premise. Having taught in Japan years ago (in a little slice of Tokyo), I appreciate your closing note about the enthusiasm the students demonstrated during the Q&A. Says a lot for all those that were involved.

Thanks for all that you do -- Truly one of the 'good RSS wells' to drink from each day.

It's thrilling to hear that Daniel Pink is engaging as a speaker as he is as an author.

A whole group of staff and parents and students at my high school read his book this spring, and it made for fascinating discussions, and I think it fostered an increased emphasis on design and creativity on our campus. So many of the ideas in the book we are still talking about. My favorite moment was hearing one of our extremely studious students recounting the chapter on "play" and her realizing the importance of play.

I'm thrilled to hear he's created a DVD of the presentation.

Thanks for sharing....

You are truly a mensch and I'm loving the Yiddish references...

You echo my sentiments on Dan Pink and I am fascinated to hear that he has as much skill in front of an audience as he has on paper.

Very separate and distinct skills are required. I endorse the perfecly imperfect comment. We all hate perfection. The nature of the human conditon is that we are flawed. Persuading an audience to adopt your point of view from the postion of the definitive expert is surely opening yourself up to criticism and failure.

Sound an excellent event for those who were there.
