You want to save the world….now what? A beginner’s guide to an impactful life regardless of which path you take.

A talk to answer your questions about how you can actually start saving the world.

Since childhood I have known that I wanted to be involved in making the world a better place. What I lacked early in my career was advise on how to do this. After 20 years of mistakes, successes, and career changes I wish to impart my experiences and knowledge on how to turn passion into real action.

In this talk we will delve into the questions I wish I had asked myself in those early days, and what you should be asking yourself now to determine a path that will not only serve the global good, but you as well. We will also look at various case studies for a variety of globally impactful people, what sets them apart, and qualities they share. The session will be highly interactive with plenty of opportunities to ask questions and discuss topics as a group.

Regardless of whether you only want to drive small local change or dedicate your entire life to a cause then this talk is for you. All career paths and every level of global impact interest are welcome and encouraged to join.
