Ahmen x Synergos

What works? Trust works!

We choose what? Love!

That was the call-and-response that reverberated throughout the Grand Hyatt in NYC as Ahmen hosted and performed at Synergos Institute’s David Rockefeller Bridging Leadership Award dinner, their premiere fundraising gala. Ahmen helped Synergos to raise 40% more money than the prior year, fueling their impact in some of the most disenfranchised communities across the globe.

Ahmen X Or Current Resident

What happens when people are treated like numbers? This is the key question that was addressed through an authentic, sobering take on gentrification by Or Current Resident, a new off-Broadway play by Squeaky Bicycle Productions. Ahmen spoke at the event during a talkback discussion on issues facing disenfranchised communities in NYC and beyond. Here’s what the producers had to say:

“Ahmen is such an engaging and dynamic speaker that we were lucky to have for our talkback event. Covering topics of tremendous social weight such as gentrification, diversity and feeling disenfranchised, his message was motivational, thought provoking and behavior changing. With his personal insights, he connected with the audience and gave them plenty of material to digest and reflect on. It is evident with Ahmen that you are dealing with someone who works from the heart. His genuine approach and personal interaction are things we could all emulate. A rare find.”
