Creating Resilient Countries for a Better World; with Kelly Culver
Show Notes

What a wonderful conversation this was with Kelly Culver: a leader of innovation and change, and an activist for resilience as our pathway to sustainability. This conversation took us to another level of thinking: it lifted us up from the minutia of our daily problems and flew above the world looking at life, purpose, meaning and how we can impact everyone.

Kelly is a beautiful person with a huge heart, determined to solve seismic problems through collaboration, innovation and our youth. She’s ready for the journey ahead and we are too.

Here’s a summary of our conversation:

07:07 - her fascination and learning in Paris

08:46 - Kelly’s journey that brought her to where she is today

10:30 - can Purpose and Profit coexist successfully?

11:25 - learning to love life with her husband Peter and a cancer diagnosis

21:04 - this unique place the world finds itself in, today

27:25 - what does “returning to normal” truly look like, and require?

32:33 - what is resilience all about?

43:19 - the BHAG of teaching kids entrepreneurship

51:00 - the American version of “success” is completely wrong

and much more….
