Innovation in Action
My mission: work with the next generation of leaders to end poverty and create sustainable, accelerating growth.
– Global Changers: An experiential leadership program focused on ending poverty
– SESA: A community of social entrepreneurs, who support each other to take massive action.
My mission and values
My mission is to work with the next generation of leaders to create an ecologically sustainable world free from poverty.
I see an end to poverty driven by people working from the ground up to create sustainable wealth for themselves and for their communities.
I see a rapid transition to a carbon-free global economy powered by innovative technologies and creative community projects.
I see a world, where everybody takes responsibility for the consequences of their actions and their inactions.
I see these things and I act to make them happen.
I believe anything is possible when a group of passionate people unite around a common goal.
I do not and will never have all the answers, so I strive to learn and grow every day.
My life is guided by 5 core values:
– Meaning: I centre my life around creating meaning through my words and through my actions
– Growth: I look forward not back and aim to constantly improve
– Joy: I treasure each moment and smile and laugh as I make my journey
– Love: I care deeply about everyone I meet and give without expecting anything in return
– Audacity: I am not afraid to think big and act big
