  • The bigger picture (valuing interdependence and interconnectedness and being aware of our impact and how to use it for good)

Who is it for?


  • People in positions of leadership within businesses, organisations and communities

  • Consultants, facilitators and trainers in the leadership and organisational development fields

  • Changemakers – people who care about the future and want to take action
