New Power: How Power Works in Our Hyperconnected World — and How to Make It Work for You
Two visionary thinker practitioners confront the biggest stories of our age - the rise of mega-platforms like Facebook and Uber, the out-of-nowhere victories of Presidents Obama and Trump, the unexpected emergence of movements like #BlackLivesMatter - and reveal what’s really behind them: the rise of “new power.” Made possible by connectivity, new power is open, participatory, and peer-driven. The authors showcase unlikely leaders who use new power techniques, from Pope Francis and Lady Gaga to some of the cultural phenomena of our time such as the Ice Bucket Challenge, Reddit, and Airbnb.
Free! No reservation required to attend the event.
