Imagine Collaborate Impact

My purpose is to collaborate with bold, disruptive pioneers across emerging markets to catalyze positive and scalable change. I focus on identifying conceptually powerful opportunities that lie beyond current local resources.  By combining a global perspective, exponential technologies, new investment models, and youth leadership, we create innovative solutions to transform the future of learning and sustainable well being.

World Economic Forum on Latin America 2015

Financial resilience, vigorous economic growth and poverty alleviation have characterized the development of most Latin American countries over the past decade. As the region sees the emergence of a larger and more demanding middle class, it is taking important steps to improve the overall living standards of its citizens. The region is rich in human and natural capital, an incubator of innovative businesses and a springboard for social entrepreneurs. Latin America – vibrant, diverse and economically dynamic – is gaining momentum and renewing its commitment to a prosperous future.

World Economic Forum on Africa

Then and Now: Reimagining Africa’s Future. In 2015, the World Economic Forum on Africa will mark 25 years of change in Africa. Over the past decade and a half, Africa has demonstrated a remarkable economic turnaround, growing two to three percentage points faster than global GDP. Regional growth is projected to remain stable at 4.5% in 2015, buoyed by rising foreign direct investment flows, particularly into the natural resources sector; increased public investment in infrastructure; and higher agricultural production. Under the theme, Then and Now: Reimagining Africa’s Future, the 25th World Economic Forum on Africa will convene regional and global leaders from business, government and civil society to take stock of progress over the last 25 years, share insights on the present landscape and identify innovative approaches to accelerate inclusive growth while bringing about sustainable development in the future.

Do Lectures

Ideas + Energy = Change.
In their clever country called Wales, Clare and David Hieatt set out to bring the DO-ers of the world together – the movers and shakers, the disrupters and the change-makers – and ask them to tell their stories. Under star lit skies, in a bind with nature, they would inspire others to go out into the world and DO, too. The intent was that pure, the motivation honest.
