Fabio Kotinda - Minimalism, healthy boundaries and being kind to ourselves

We open the discussion up around our reactions to life occurrences, friendships and relationships, how we treat others, journaling, healthy boundaries with people, practicing compassion for others but also for ourselves. We talk about our direction in life and where we focus our attention. It's one of those episodes that are fun and relatable in some way or another.

Megan Rowling - Senior Climate Journalist, Thomson Reuters Foundation
Today on the podcast we explore her background into Journalism, how she started out and her peculiar but interesting choice in Japanese literature, which lead her to study it at Cambridge. From growing up on a farm, this line of progression or trajectory wasn’t exactly the standard. Megan and I discuss her time in Japan, what she learnt from the people, culture, way of life and of course how the literature connected to her. We discuss coming up through the ranks and finding her way to journalism through reporting on world events and humanitarian work. Megan is a climate correspondent and editor for (TRF), based in Barcelona as mentioned but with an international beat. She runs a small team of reporters covering the ins and outs of securing a green and just transition to a decarbonised world, especially in developing countries. She has worked on topics ranging from finance to humanitarian news throughout her career as a journalist, with stints at Reuters and the BBC.
Tim Christophersen - Salesforce, Vice President, Climate Action talking corporate responsibility
Tim Christophersen, Vice President, Climate Action Salesforce Tim and discuss corporate responsibility, the initiatives they are leading the way on, innovations, optimism, their staff, and the direction of global business from a climate perspective. The sustainability revolution is here! Hopefully just in time. We must scale up existing and new climate solutions across the world, and that is something that the private sector can do at the scale and speed we need which I talk to Tim about.
Simone Filippini - Behaviour and politics, the good the bad and the ugly
Simone is one of those rare extraordinary women who are beyond impressive. She has been an Ambassador, a Diplomat, CEO of both the Humanitarian sector and NGO's.She loves to work at the intersection of public-private-non governmental sectors. She is a believer in social impact & sustainability as co-drivers of future business & sustainable socioeconomic development. I wanted to speak to Simone about our world, the behaviours we are witnessing from our leaders and politicians, why it feels so disconnected and polarising from her perspective. We talk Politics today & the psychological warfare seemingly spreading across all nations, leadership & Governance. We discuss things like, humility, ego, great leadership, where we are at as the human race and the hope of change.
