Susan Cain has sparked a national conversation about introverts, who comprise a third to a half of every classroom and workplace.  


Her book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking was an instant New York Times best-seller and is one of the most talked about books of 2012.  Cain's TED talk garnered a standing ovation and smashed a first-week record with over a million views.


In this unique lecture, Cain will focus on the special qualities of quiet kids, how they are often misunderstood and under-valued. She will explore ways that parents and educators can help these kids build social skills, manage the school scene and meet their full potential.
