Des Moines, Iowa – The Fourth Many Hands Business Breakfast brings together business leaders across Iowa to #ChallengeWhatsPossible. This year the event is bringing multi-talented composer, pianist, and speaker Eric Genuis to Iowa. His music has brought him all over the world. From Hollywood to Slovakia, Eric has wowed and inspired large and small audiences, performing nearly 100 concerts worldwide yearly. Touring with a group of world-class musicians, his live shows consist of stories, humor, and audience interaction.
Eric also performs through his charitable effort, Concerts for Hope, to bring beauty and dignity back to the imprisoned and marginalized. He has performed over 1,000 prison concerts in his lifetime, including in most maximum-security facilities in the U.S.
Ahead of Many Hands’ 2022 Business Breakfast, Eric Genuis, will lead Many Hands’ Week of Impact, traveling across Iowa and performing multiple charity concerts. For six days, Eric will engage with hundreds at schools, shelters, and prisons, bringing hope through his music and message. His final performance will be held at the Business Breakfast, where he will share his message as keynote speaker.
“The Business Breakfast will be the capstone of the week, a time to celebrate the good happening in the world through love in action.”
Tim Brand, Many Hands CEO, said, “The Business Breakfast will have the same elements as years past – world-class speakers, the best venue, great food, and community-building. It will be slightly different, as we will utilize the power of music to move and transform us as leaders. The biggest difference will be the addition of the Week of Impact; we will be going to prisons, rehab centers, youth shelters, and at-risk student activities to host concerts. The Business Breakfast will be the capstone of the week, a time to celebrate the good happening in the world through love in action.”
In addition to keynote speaker, Eric Genuis, Tim Brand, will also speak at the Business Breakfast.
“I will be sharing stories of the past week and what we saw during our Week of Impact. I’ll share stories of Haiti and the beautiful stories in the midst of such hardships. I’ll share some personal stories, as I’ve gone through a rough season and how this has molded and shaped me in unique ways,” Brand said.
