Empowering Leaders To Build A Better Tomorrow with Lara Stein

How do we empower leaders to build a better tomorrow?

My guest Lara Stein understands this challenge as well as anyone as the Chairman and Founder of Boma Global. Lara was the founder of the TEDx program at TED, and grew it into a global movement with more than 15,000 events and more than 1 billion video views. Through her work with TEDx, Lara learned the innovation power of local communities, and how to harness this power. She also learned how to build a massive volunteer network and how to sustain it long term. After leaving TED, she joined Singularity University, to build a decentralized network of country partners and take them global. Now, she has joined forces with dozens of country, corporate and community partners with an intimate understanding and appreciation of the power of large-scale, decentralized networks.

Join us as we explore and learn from Lara’s incredible insight drawn from extensive experience of empowering leaders and engaging communities to build the most incredible momentum for a better tomorrow.

I recently shared a stage with Chris, speaking at a Business Growth Conference in Mayfair, London.Chris had a tough job as the final speaker at the end of the afternoon, following a series of speeches from highly experienced conference speakers.The organisers were delighted with Chris – he did a splendid job reminding the audience that they only had themselves to blame if they left that conference and failed to take appropriate action. Using humour and pathos, Chris engaged with the audience and left everyone feeling upbeat and raring to go at the end of the day. I highly commend Chris to you as a speaker.
