As globally recognized entrepreneur Aaron Hurst is the CEO of Imperative, a technology platform that enables people to discover, connect and act on what gives them purpose in their work. Aaron is a close advisor to many global brands and frequent speaker and writer on the development of the Purpose Economyhis newly released book.

Aaron’s remarks will focus on his ideas, as offered in, "The Purpose Economy" that suggests the future is one of purpose that will drive innovation and radically reshape careers and organizations. Aaron’s notions are that as a result of a purpose orientation, new priorities are relationships, impact and personal growth will, as a result, change the economy. Following his remarks a discussion and Q&A session will be moderated by Dr. Robert Ashcraft, executive director of the ASU Lodestar Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Innovation and professor of nonprofit studies in ASU’s School of Community Resources and Development.

He is the founder and an active advisor to the Taproot Foundation where he was the catalyst and lead architect of the $15 billion pro bono service market. He was the creative force behind the conception of the national Billion + Change campaign. Previously he worked in Silicon Valley developing the precursors to social media. Widely known for his thought-leadership and a regular blogger for the Huffington Post, Stanford Social Innovation Review and LinkedIn, Aaron is a member of the Nonprofit Times’ Power & Influence Top 50, and has been recognized as a top social entrepreneur by Fast Company, Ashoka, Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation, Manhattan Institute and the CommonWealth Club.
