March 20, 2013 (Alexandria, VA) –

Dan PinkOn Thursday, March 14th, best-selling author Daniel Pink and the American Society for Training & Development (ASTD) delivered the largest webcast in ASTD history.

Hosted on the Webvent for Webinars platform with full webinar professional service, Dan Pink signed up over 2,500 people with just under 1,000 attendees joining the live event; both numbers set new ASTD webcast records. In the webcast Daniel Pink explained why we’re all in sales now — no matter what our job title is or what our business card says. The presentation was recorded and is available here at no charge.

After the webcast, Dan Pink commented, “Webvent was a joy to work with on our ASTD webinar. They guided me through the process smoothly and ensured that everything worked well on game day.  They did a masterful job of dealing with the logistics so I could devote my full attention to the presentation itself.”
