Encore Show: Born Free – Lessons from a life of charity & conservation with Will Travers OBE

Ever wondered what life must be like establishing and leading your own charity? My guest for this Special Encore Show, Will Travers OBE is an internationally renowned wildlife expert who has dedicated his life to wildlife issues, since he lived in Kenya while his parents, Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers, made the film Born Free (1966). In 1984, he co-founded the wildlife charity now known as The Born Free Foundation, which works to stop individual wild animal suffering and protect threatened species worldwide. Will is President of Born Free and President of the Species Survival Network (SSN), an international coalition of over 100 organizations committed to the promotion, enhancement and enforcement of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species. Join us to learn from lessons acquired while leading a high profile charity and the conservation issues that we should all be caring about today.

‘I am more than pleased to share my experience of the TEP programme. For me it has been an invaluable part of my own learning and development for several reasons. The books that we have studied have always resonated with the place that I have been at that time. To study a book with a group of like minded individuals, all professional and all keen to develop themselves and others has made me read with a depth that I would normally not use. The result being a richness of understanding that I can apply and want to apply, into my business immediately The guests that you have invited to to talk about their journeys have left their own gift with me – one of them being a depth and breadth of stories to illustrate points on my own programmes. And finally, for me the sense of not being alone, in my loft, in pursuit of my own personal success, but being able to feedback and to celebrate successes together. This is a fantastic community to belong and a commitment to my own personal success and to that of others. Thank you Chris for having and holding the vision’ Carroll Macey, Managing Director CM2C Change Management Consultancy (Nottinghamshire) http://www.cm2c.com.
