“What Amy Webb does better than anyone else: She stays on top of complex technical innovations, information and geek-speak and distills them into relatively simple concepts and practical applications. I’ve seen her present several times… and each session has been forward-looking and highly relevant.” San Jose Mercury News
Some call her “a secret weapon from the future”.
FORBES Magazine proclaimed her one of the “Women Changing The World.”
Leader of a team of like-minded strategists at her company WebbMedia Group, AMY WEBB advises a worldwide client base of Fortune 100 and Global 1000 companies, government agencies, media organizations and foundations, all on the quest to understand “what’s next.”
Oh, and she also managed to create the most popular personal profile on several online dating sites, which eventually landed her a husband and a best-selling book DATA, A LOVE STORY.
In a program designed especially for general audiences, Ms. Webb will bring that expertise to Columbus for a breathtaking evening of looking forward at how new communities are being formed (and old ones transformed) by new communications paradigms.
Please join us for the Building Common Ground lecture series featuring AMY WEBB on Thursday, April 10th at the new time of 6:00pm. The presentation will take place in the Columbus Public Library Auditorium, 3000 Macon Road. Free hors d’oeuvres will be served, and copies of Ms. Webb’s book will be available for purchase.
Building Common Ground is a co-presentation of the Chattahoochee Valley Libraries and MidTown, Inc. The program is made possible in part by a grant from the Knight Fund at the Community Foundation of the Chattahoochee Valley, Inc. Additional support comes from the Muscogee County Friends of Libraries, with media support from Sunny 100.
Additional questions can be directed to the Libraries’ general number – 706-243-2669 – or Midtown, Inc at 706-494-1663.
