The Next Generation of Leadership
Empowering High Impact Investors, Entrepreneurs and Business Leaders
Redefining the Purpose of Business
As the world faces a wave of unprecedented challenges, we are constantly reminded of the fragility and complexity of our society. Despite the chaos, we have a tremendous opportunity for positive change. To the young global leaders – this is your call to action.
With the power to influence at your fingertips, it is time to redefine what it means to be a leader and shift your focus towards a greater purpose. The reins of influence are now within the grasp of our generation, and we are ready to harness our individual and collective energy to drive meaningful transformation. My mission is to redefine the traditional notions of leadership and business, shifting the purpose from merely making profit to actually serving the greater good. We must work together to create a sustainable and equitable world where morality and a deep sense of responsibility guide our actions.
Achieving such a transformative commitment demands radical self-inquiry, unwavering presence, and unyielding courage. Together, we have the power to awaken the heart of business by liberating ourselves, expanding our minds, and igniting a profound shift toward a brighter future.

I have been fortunate to receive an education from some of the world’s leading universities and to work in prestigious organizations. While my foundational experience was valuable, it also led me to question prevailing corporate values and belief systems. Putting shareholder interests at the forefront of decision-making and the inevitable consequences left me confused, heartbroken, and deeply concerned for our collective future. As a result, I left my career in corporate law to advance social entrepreneurship and philanthropy. This shift served as an intellectual awakening, revealing the power and beauty that lies within business when it is conducted with goodness and integrity.
Driven by a desire to deepen my personal and professional insights, I embarked on a journey to deepen my understanding of psychology and psychospiritual practices. Through this reflective process, I have come to appreciate the distinction between knowledge and wisdom. This realization has brought about a deep emotional and spiritual awakening, which has allowed me to see the world in a whole new light.
Today, I extend an invitation to you to walk along the path of awakening with me.
