IDEO is a world renowned design and innovation firm that uses a human-centered, design-based approach to helping organizations in the public and private sectors innovate and grow. IDEO’s mission is to uncover latent needs, behaviors and desires. Paul Bennett, as Chief Creative Officer, is at the helm of many of these new innovations. One such vision is The Powerful Now (http://thepowerfulnow.com/), a collaboration led by Kyu, SYPartners and IDEO, which is fueling the growing global movement around positive aging for all.

The Powerful Now states “aging is being redefined. Not as a path of decline, but one of renewal.” The Powerful Now believes people wish to become more curious, more engaged, more vibrate, and more deeply connected to the idea and people who matter to them as they age. It will bring power of creativity to how we conceive of, design and experience aging.

“Louisville, as the largest hub of companies and organizations focused on lifelong wellness and aging care is an ideal place to share the vision of The Powerful Now,” said Bennett. “I’m thrilled to be part of the Summit conversations and look forward to these two days of the best minds collaborating on the future of aging care, on how to redefine aging not as decline, but as renewal!”
