Co-author of 2018 best seller New Power
Jeremy Heimans is the co-author of the bestselling 2018 book New Power: How Power Works in our Hyperconnected World – and How to Make It Work for You. He is a sought-after voice worldwide for his game-changing insight into the new methods and mindsets propelling some ideas to extraordinary success, and his seminal Harvard Business Review article on “new power” with co-author Henry Timms has transformed the way dynamic organizations think about influence and change. CNN has named “new power” one of the “top 10 ideas to change the world,” and his Ted Talk exploring the phenomenon has received 1.4 million views.
Jeremy has been building movements since the age of 8 when, as a child activist in his native Australia, he ran media campaigns and lobbied leaders on issues such as children’s rights and nuclear non-proliferation. In 2004, Jeremy dropped out of Oxford to cofound a campaign group in the U.S. presidential elections and the following year cofounded GetUp, an Australian political organization and internationally-recognized social movement phenomenon that today has more members than all of Australia’s political parties combined. In 2007, Jeremy co-founded Avaaz, the world’s largest online citizens’ movement, now with more than 43 million members.
Jeremy received the Ford Foundation’s 75th Anniversary Visionary Award for his work as a movement pioneer, and the World Economic Forum has named him a Young Global Leader.
He is also co-founder and CEO of Purpose, a home for building 21st century movements and ventures that use the power of participation to change the world. Jeremy began his career with the strategy consultants McKinsey & Company, and he has degrees from Harvard University and the University of Sydney. He lives in New York.
