What can one person really do to solve the climate crisis? You’re not famous, you’re not a celebrity and you don’t spend time advising corporate leaders or senior politicians? Well, fear not, here are a few small things you can do to make a big difference…
“Things take longer to happen than you think they will, and then they happen faster than you thought they could.”
Which are the “best” TED talks on climate change? Not just the ones with the most views. I asked IBM’s artificial intelligence to help me find out.
“We can’t save the world by playing by the rules”.
In August last year, hardly anyone knew who Greta Thunberg was. A few months later, she was nominated for the Nobel Peace prize after inspiring millions of people to campaign about climate change to their governments and schools.
How exactly did that happen?
“SMUBA”. What is it, why does it it matter – and how can you use it as a framework for your next world changing project.

My notes, links, quotes and case studies from the 20-minute presentation I gave for iXperience Friday on Facebook Live with IBM iX on 27th March 2020. I covered a lot of content so I thought it might be helpful to share all the links for anyone who is interested.
Since we’re all locked up for the foreseeable future and resigned to communicating via WebEx, Zoom, Teams and Skype, I thought I’d share some useful advice of giving better online presentations. (Including some insights about the carbon footprints of webinars!)
For the last 4 years I have done a Masterclass each day on my commute to work. Here’s the highlights from some of my favourite lessons.
A one-pager of a few business leaders I admire. Inspired by Chris Hadfield’s “one-pagers” from his Masterclass series.
