In this episode of the thinkspace podcast, Joss sits down with a man that has rubbed shoulders with some of the worlds most influential people at the Vatican, Buckingham Palace, on Wall St. and most importantly, the slums of India, Haiti and many other of the poorest countries in the world. David Katz. Known to most in the world as the Founder and CEO of Plastic Bank, the world’s largest chain of stores for the poor in the world. With only a highschool education - David has a commanding grasp of human psychology as well as business and entrepreneurship.
As you’ll hear, David has a profound presence in whatever room he presents himself in. His sense of compassion is second to none and with that, he is looking to propel the world forward by creating tremendous value out of our most discarded material, plastic. It was an absolute honor and a pleasure to command the attention of David for a few hours late on a cold Thursday evening after a string of strenuous schedules over the past few weeks, we hope you find the same value in this conversation as we did.
In this episode, you’ll learn about:
How Plastic Bank is using garbage to abolish poverty and clean the oceans
How the .1% of the world perceive life and deal with obstacles
David’s personal story of tragedy and triumph
How individuals can and are affecting change in the world
