Paul Gilding: Crisis as a Catalyst for Transformation

Paul Gilding: Crisis as a Catalyst for Transformation
Do we have to destroy the old to create the new?

From Global Greenpeace CEO to corporate consultant, Paul Gilding has made a surprising discovery about transformation. After spending years on the frontline of environmental activism he transitioned to corporate boardrooms and lear jets, meeting ‘the people in charge.’ He’s now convinced that the current global climate crisis is the catalyst for deep change.

People are now searching for, yearning for, big dramatic shifts. That changes the politics but it also changes the level of personal engagement by individuals.

We also bring you a weekly dose of global good news with UPLIFT’s Vanessa Hill. Vanessa has a collection of updates from around the globe; from animal protection laws to supermarkets donating food to the needy, there’s a variety of uplifting news to brighten up your day.

Thank you so much for letting me hear my hopes and dreams coming out of someone else’s mouth! I have been so flustered and AFRAID, especially since the inauguration, that I’ve been reeling. I’m still doing what I can, and that led me to you. And peace. I rely on Hildegard of Bigden, “And all shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well.” I believe that, but my faith has been shaky. I’m back now. After listening to Paul Gilding, I can see that what I *thought* were good signs are actually good signs. This is a wonderful organization, quite rightly named!
