Dan Heath is a Senior Fellow at Duke University's CASE center, which supports entrepreneurs who are fighting for social good. He is the co-author of Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard, which debuted at #1 on the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists. The Heath brothers previously co-wrote the critically acclaimed book Made to Stick, which was named the Best Business Book of the Year, spent 24 months on the BusinessWeek bestseller list, and has been translated into 29 languages, the last of which was Slovak. Two proud (sort of) moments for Dan are his stint driving a promotional car called the "Brainmobile" across the country and his victory in the 2005 New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest, beating out 13,000 other entrants.
As an imaginative force and designer of ideas, products, and brands, Neil has lead the launch of over 50 new and innovative products making Plum Organics & Revolution Foods two of the fastest-growing organic baby and kids food brands in the U.S. He also pioneered the first-to-market spouted pouch that has single-handedly revolutionized a dormant baby food category. Nest is now the largest manufacturer of the award-winning, eco-pouch format in North America.
