About the Presenters:

Marian Goodman believes deeply in the power of human beings to co-create the kind of future we want to live in. As a leadership consultant and coach, working closely with Dr. Otto Scharmer (MIT, Presencing Institute) to build capacity for profound social transformation, she travels the world delivering programs and innovation labs across all sectors and levels of society. Her work ranges from Leadership Learning Journeys into India, Africa, South America and elsewhere, to executive education in Graduate Schools of Business, to engagement at community grassroots - all to activate responsible, authentic, wholehearted leadership and deeper awareness of collective impact. Marian speaks numerous languages, and has her home base in Cape Town, South Africa.

Frederic Laloux, author of Reinventing Organizations, has worked intimately with people at all levels of organizations. He has witnessed how the organizations that make up the fabric of our modern lives (large corporations and small businesses, hospitals and schools, nonprofits and government agencies) are for the most part places of quiet and pervasive suffering, places inhospitable to the deeper yearnings of our souls. The intuition that more is possible—that we must be capable of creating truly soulful organizations that invite all of our human potential into the workplace—has led him to engage into groundbreaking research: how a currently emerging, new form of consciousness is bringing forth a radically more soulful, purposeful, and productive organizational model.
