I’m a nomad with a love of adventure and a strong belief that business (and individuals) can be a force for good in the world. I’m proud to lead a team of brilliant people who are passionate about how we reinvent how we live and work in the world. Where else would you get the chance to be a part of changing the world for the better with 50,000 great entrepreneurial people, 80 businesses in over 15 industries and a crazy man with a beard who never accepts the unacceptable?
working with Richard Branson..
we are all individuals –
TEDxOxbridge – Stop Saving the World, Start Reinventing
neon street – homeless teens
3 things i learned:
1. the young man that stole my wallet, didn’t want to steal my wallet
2. i was not going to save them.. if anything they were going to save me.. their depth of dispair has given them great wisdom
3. how screwed up we are as a wealthy us society – that we are allowing 2 million young people to sleep in the streets…
at that point – i became obsessed with how to reinvent the system...
there is no planet b – we need to figure out how to live in planet a
for the first time we have the tech/tools/intelligence to reinvent..
how to take 3 systems: business, government, ngo/charity – and reinvent for change
power of business if they deliver the right tools – so that people can empower themselves..
networked individualism ness – huge.. for 7 billion people.
in social media there is no hierarchy
projects called – the elders (come to a point in life that they have no other agenda than bettering humanity)- and the global village
silos, business leaders, global leadership – 3 silos
not just finding self – but finding others.. every single day
