Each week, our colleague Maria Franzoni invites one of our keynote speakers to discuss their life, work, current projects and passions. We hope that hearing more about them will allow you to get a better understanding of who they are.

This week Maria’s guest is Jim Harris. Jim talks to us about climate change, being a global social influencer, disruptive innovation and how driverless cars will disrupted us more than we realise. Jim also tells us how his great aunt influenced his passion for the environment and how by reading just one sentence from a book led him to being elected leader of the Green Party of Canada.

Please welcome Jim Harris
