I have spent a SIGNIFICANT time recently looking at the work I am doing, and that of other “social entrepreneurs”, and have come to the conclusion that we have become too safe.
We have become too guarded with our ideas, with our business plans, and with how we communicate the work.
Too few of us are swinging for the fences in an attempt to SOLVE a big problem, and it’s time to shake it up.
It’s time we bold actions to solve the growing challenges we face in our communities, economies, and environments, and through this video I hope to inspire to look at the work you are doing in a different way.
To take steps that you feel might be uncomfortable, but may lead you (and your organization) closer to achieving something big.
Driven by the belief that change begins with a single step, I’ve spent the last 15 years in Asia working to engage, inspire, and equip those around him to understand their power to leverage innovation, entrepreneurship, and leadership to solve “the big” challenges cities face.
Currently, as the Managing Director of Collective Responsibility, Executive Director of HandsOn China, and a former Adjunct Professor of Sustainability at the China Europe International Business School (CEIBS), I’m focused on building platforms that promote long term organizational capacity to address the economic, environmental, and social hurdles that China faces as the country’s economic growth accelerates.
