CNP Summit™ 2020 Keynote

David Epstein

David Epstein

David Epstein is the author of two top 10 New York Times bestsellers. His most recent--RANGE: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World--makes this presentation especially pertinent to the CNP Summit audience.

Epstein brings bold new insights to business, education, technological innovation, healthcare and other industries on the best approach to career development. His conclusion: In most fields, especially those that are complex, unpredictable, and difficult to automate, generalists, not specialists, are primed to excel.

For the CNP payments and fraud world, this message could not come at a more opportune time. With no established educational track in fraud and payments, companies MUST turn to generalists to fill their ranks. Epstein will share why they are so well suited to this industry.

Merging stories from the worlds of sports, business, medicine, and education, Epstein will shed light on the paths to peak performance--especially important when fraud professionals still struggle to assert themselves within their organizations and work effectively with other corporate functions.

Epstein will unpack the science of success — leaving us with actionable takeaways to improve how we live, work, and prepare for the future.
