Event Details



“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.” –Abraham Lincoln

Event Information

Power informs our history and literature. It defines our professional and social relationships. It provides—or denies—us access, information, influence and wealth. But power is fickle, and fleeting. We live in a rare moment: in the past, shifts in power, whether economic, political or technological, occurred periodically; the term status quo is not without irony. Today, power emerges in new ways, from unexpected sources, at all times. But understanding the means by which power is created and wielded defines who Changes the Game.

Churchill Club proudly presents its third annual daylong conference dedicated to change and innovation. This exciting, day-long, interactive event will present a series of thought-provoking expressions of power, from personal, to organizational, to geopolitical.  Hear from visionaries who are changing our world, interact with organizations that are authoring the future, contribute your own ideas, and power up a level via our range of power training workshops.
