    Quotes From This Episode

    • "I have CEOs all the time that say to me, 'okay, I'm hiring women, but they're not staying.' And I'm like, 'describe your culture.'"
    • "The research is so clear that when you have a mix of great men and great women working together in leadership teams...better things are going to happen - more innovation, and more creativity...If we really care about doing better for this world, for our kids and grandkids, we have to move forward with greater diversity, inclusion, and belonging."
    • "I've always said the difference between a guru and a scholar is that the gurus have all the answers and scholars have all the questions. I have way more questions."
    • "When you can get into that wonderful space where your head, heart, and hands all connect - then it really is powerful."

    My approach to hosting

    • The views of my guests do not constitute "truth." Nor do they reflect my personal views in some instances. However, they are important views to be aware of. However, nothing can replace your own research and exploration.

    Quotes From This Episode

    • "Passion, started the whole process. I knew that I couldn't rely on the government to solve some of the issues I was seeing around me. I also knew that it wasn't a simple case of 'copy and paste' from what I did in the US, because people's needs are so different."
    • "One of the things that I tried to do is let the result speak for itself.  Because regardless of what you do, when you see results, you can't argue with results. Plus, not taking 'no' for an answer."
