Henry Timms to Present on the Concept of 'New Power' at Regional Breakfast
GREATER DES MOINES, IOWA (Aug. 30, 2018) – Internationally acclaimed author Henry Timms will present on the concept of “new power” at a regional breakfast on Friday, Sept. 21. Timms is the co-author of “New Power: How Power Works in Our Hyperconnected World — and How to Make it Work for You.” He is also President and CEO of the 92nd Street Y and co-founder of #GivingTuesday, an international day of philanthropy.
Timms’ book explores why some leap ahead while others fall behind in a chaotic, connected age. He confronts some of the biggest stories of our time, including unexpected political victories and the emergence of movements like #MeToo and the Ice Bucket Challenge, to reveal the rise of new power that is behind them.
Timms will speak on how understanding new power can reshape the world around you, and how the future is a battle for mobilization. He will detail how those who flourish best will be people who are able to channel participatory energy for the good, the bad and the trivial. This battle will have implications for people, organizations and the world at large. Attendees will learn how to build new power and channel it successfully.
The event will take place from 7:30 – 9 a.m. at the Ron Pearson Event Center, 5820 Westown Parkway, West Des Moines. Registration is $25 for Partnership Investors and Affiliate Chamber Members, and $35 for non-members.
