Susan Cain gained worldwide recognition when she wrote the book “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking.” The book spent nine years on The New York Times bestseller list, has been translated into 40 languages, and was named the best book of the year by Fast Company Magazine. Fast Company also included Cain on their list of Most Creative People in Business. With her unique perspective on society and individuals, she helps us see ourselves and our fellow human beings in a new light. By listening to Susan Cain, you become a bit wiser, more generous, and more empowered by your own vulnerability. Her latest book, “Bittersweet,” is poised to become an international bestseller and has already been selected as one of Oprah Winfrey’s books of the year. In the book, she advocates for embracing melancholy and warns against “a society obsessed with showcasing only the positive.” We become more whole as human beings by acknowledging the experiences of sorrow, loss, and bitterness that all individuals occasionally encounter. Cain’s TED talks have been viewed over 40 million times, and LinkedIn has ranked her as the sixth top influencer in the world, right behind Richard Branson and Melinda F. Gates.
The conversation with Susan Cain will be held digitally, and it will be facilitated by Stein Markussen from NNL and Heidi Westli from AFF.
Time: Wednesday, August 30th 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM
