LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 13, 2018) The Von Allmen Center for Entrepreneurship, part of University of Kentucky’s Gatton College of Business and Economics, will host noted author and speaker Todd Henry on Thursday, Aug. 30, in the college’s Woodward Hall, Room 307. The event begins 11:30 a.m. and is scheduled to last until 1:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided. Seating is limited and RSVP is required.

Widely considered as one of the foremost experts on managing creative people, Henry teaches leaders and organizations how to establish practices that lead to everyday brilliance. He is the author of four books ("The Accidental Creative," "Die Empty," "Louder Than Words" and "Herding Tigers") which have been translated into more than a dozen languages, and he speaks and consults across dozens of industries on creativity, leadership and passion for work.

His book "Die Empty" was named by Amazon.com as one of the best books of 2013. His book, "Louder Than Words," is about how to develop an authentic voice that resonates and creates impact. Bestselling author Tom Rath called it “...  one of the best guides to living a meaningful life I have ever read.”

"Herding Tigers: Be the Leader That Creative People Need" (2018) has been called an "urgently needed manual for managers doing important work" by Seth Godin.

Todd will be signing his latest book, "Herding Tigers," after lunch.

There is no cost to attend the event. Again, RSVP is required. A limited number of books will be provided courtesy of the Von Allmen Center for Entrepreneurship.
