Thrilled To Have Nick & Sir Ken Back!
If you look at the program for PINK12 you’ll see we’ve finalized our line-up of keynote speakers. Nick Carr and Sir Ken Robinson have been keynote speakers at Pink’s Annual ITSM Conference in the past. They’re now part of a very select group of repeat keynotes (in fact Nick Carr is already a repeat keynote - PINK12 will be his 3rd Pink event).
You might wonder why we invite speakers back like this. I remember years ago when we very first considered inviting someone back we thought very carefully about how this would be perceived by our customers. Turns out there was nothing to worry about. In fact I don’t recall ever seeing any negative feedback about our trend for bringing back the best of the best. My justification is quite simple; we look for speakers who are educational, entertaining and inspirational - and if you can capture all three of these precious qualities in one person, then the chances are you’d welcome the chance to hear them again, and again. I’m glad many of you agree!
Nick Carr is one of the smartest people in our industry, his research and ideas are extremely thought provoking and entertaining. This coming year we’re planning to engage with him in a much more interactive way than either of his previous two visits. So, hopefully, that means some fun can be expected!
Sir Ken Robinson is quite simply one of the smartest people on the planet. Not only does he have a sense of humour which will have you laughing out loud for sure. If you haven’t seen his talks on the TED website then I can promise you’ll be both enthralled and entertained at the same time.
Don’t miss them. See you at Pink12!
