Some time ago I wrote about Dan Pink’s great TEDtalk on motivation. It is brilliant and well worth the small investment of time.
But this morning I delivered a keynote address at the Australasian Sourcing Summit in Sydney (check out the live blog). It’s a fascinating, emerging profession – and the presentations across the morning showed the depth of knowledge and experimentation that is being carried out in business large and small.
But one tweet reminded me that when we take money off the table, there are other things that really drive our motivation. And this video animation of Dan’s speech – courtesy of Katie Chatfield – explains what that is.
"Anything to help bring legitimacy to the industry is an honorable task…"
Who's ready to help build this?

Great line-up. 30+ speakers from different backgrounds & locations brought together by a common desire to do #diversity recruitment right. Hurry, only a few days left. https://sourcingsummit.net/sosud #dodiverse
We are a day late to drop our annual #internationalwomensday wishes :( But it's never too late or too often to recognise the immense contribution by women to the sourcing profession. #hearmeroar #iamwoman
