Why Lynne Twist Believes Business Leaders Should Learn From Indigenous Peoples

Lynne Twist is one of the most incredible people I know. She became an activist after she was inspired by Buckminster Fuller’s vision of a global society in which no one was left behind, and since then she’s gone on to write her revolutionary book, ‘The Soul of Money’, examining our cultural attitudes towards wealth. Today, Lynne runs the Pachamama Alliance, an organization that connects leaders in business to indigenous leaders that protect the Amazon rainforest to support personal and collective transformation. She brings with her pure positivity and a powerful message so enjoy our conversation on how business needs to change in order to meet the social and environmental challenges we face.
