Social Enterprise Summit

Welcome address cum Keynote Speech - New Power: Persuade, Mobilise and Succeed in our Chaotic, Connected Age

“New Power”, according to Jeremy Heimans and Henry Timms, is the ability to harness the energy of the connected crowd; it is the deployment of mass participation and peer coordination to create change and shift outcomes. Anyone who has worked out how they can get new power into their hands and push it in the directions of the outcomes that they seek, are on the road to success. How do we make sure that this rise of new power truly empowers people and harness successes towards a better world? What does this mean to social entrepreneurship? How do social innovation movements advance into a more equitable economy?
