The Company Corporation to sponsor Next Thing Now speakers' series

Jan. 8 event will feature best-selling author Daniel Pink

WILMINGTON, DE – December 31st, 2012 – ( – What do you get when you put smart speakers with smart ideas in front of a smart audience?

You get the Next Thing Now, and it's coming to Wilmington's Chase Center on the Riverfront on Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2013.

Sponsored by The Company CorporationThe Company Corporation, the Next Thing Now is a series of action-oriented, skill-building events planned for the New Year, designed to energize and inspire the business lives of everyone who takes part.

Kicking off the series next month will be the one and only Daniel Pink, author of the best-selling books Drive, A Whole New Mind, Free Agent Nation, and most recently, To Sell Is Human. The theme of Pink's Wilmington visit will be the "Moving Business."

"Like it or not, we're all in sales now," says Pink. "We're all in the 'Moving Business.'" During his Next Thing Now presentation, he'll outline his key exercises for moving people (pitching, improvising, and serving) and share what he calls the "new maxims of selling" (attunement, buoyancy, and clarity). He'll explain the science behind the facts, offer new takeaways that will work in any situation, and demonstrate how the concepts of "making it personal" and "making it purposeful" are essential to successful selling.

Author Malcolm Gladwell (The Tipping Point) calls Daniel Pink "provocative and fascinating," and Forbes says he "has a knack for teaching in such an entertaining way that you'll forget you are learning." His near-legendary TED talk video has already garnered four million views, and his appearance here in Wilmington is a must-see for anyone interested in becoming a more powerful communicator.

Along with Pink, the Next Thing Now 2013 kickoff will feature some of Wilmington's own business "heavy hitters" sharing their wisdom about motivation, persuasion, and selling. Everyone present will learn strategies to sharpen their business skills and accelerate their effectiveness.

Light breakfast and coffee will be served at the event, and everyone who attends will receive a copy of Daniel Pink's new book, To Sell Is Human.
