ABOUT THE SESSION

Alan "AP" Powell and his business partner Aaron Bare sit down to discuss AP's impact on the Phoenix ecosystem. AP, a United States Army Gulf War Veteran, started his career in the sports and entertainment industry before creating AP & Associates—a consulting firm specializing in strategic alliances and channel development for Fortune 500 Companies. A "student of the game," AP is a masterful connector with a wide ranging network.


Aaron Bare is the Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestselling author of Exponential Theory: The Power of Thinking Big. A strategic innovation facilitator, Aaron has helped executives and board rooms in Fortune 500 companies solve their biggest challenges. To date, Bare's facilitation has been used at over 500 companies in nearly 100 countries.


Together, AP and Bare co-founded the Herozona Foundation to give back to the community with innovative solutions. Major initiatives include the Bridge Forum, a facilitated discussion between police departments and community leaders around the country, and the One Community Initiative, a community collaboration to provide COVID-19 testing, vaccines, and flu shots in under-served communities. From the annual turkey drive around Thanksgiving, the Tools 4 School backpack and school supplies drive, and the annual MLK Jr. Celebration, HeroZona and AP are creating tangible change in Phoenix.
