Welcome to episode #23 of the Mallen Baker podcast, where I talk to successful change makers about what works and what doesn’t in making a lasting and positive impact in the world.

In this episode, I talk to John O’Brien, an ethics and purpose champion, co-author of ‘the power of purpose’, and the managing partner of the One Hundred Agency.
John was responsible for what the government rated as the largest mobilisation of volunteering since world war 2. He was a founder of the Mosaic network, and numerous other charitable and entrepreneurial ventures.
In this interview, we talk about how he got to where he is, and what he learned along the way. We talk about what made some of those campaigns particularly successful, and what we can learn from them in relation to some of the burning issues of the day.
John is a thoughtful and highly engaging interviewee and we cover a lot of ground. I think you’ll get a huge amount from our discussion.
