MADISON, Wis. (4/17/13)--Adam Grant, an award-winning professor, researcher and author, has been announced as the fourth keynote speaker at the 2013 America's Credit Union Conference, June 30-July 3 at the Hilton New York in New York City.
"Grant has been all over the media lately, including The Today Show, The Washington Post, The New York Times and Fast Company, to discuss his revolutionary thinking about the positives of being a 'giver' in business," said Todd Spiczenski, vice president of the Credit Union National Association Center for Professional Development. "I have no doubt that his research results and positive message about how doing good can get you ahead will make a profound connection with credit union professionals."
Grant is the youngest-tenured and highest-rated professor at Wharton, where he teaches organizational psychology--the study of workplace dynamics. He was named one of the world's 40-best business professors under age 40 and has received the Excellence in Teaching Award for every class he has taught.
Grant has presented solutions for leaders of organizations including Google, the National Football League, IBM, Merck, the World Economic Forum, Goldman Sachs, Estee Lauder and the U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force. He wrote a new book, Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success, and was recently profiled in a New York Times Magazine cover story, "Is Giving the Secret to Getting Ahead?"
