How do you inspire people to make positive change?

How do you inspire people to make positive change?

Ever since I became a sustainability advocate in 2008, it has been a continuous quest of mine to find different ways of engaging with people – to enable myself and those around me to make positive change towards a better life, and a better world.  In seeking out stories and inspirations from various communities of people, and sharing them, it is my hope that we can all create ripples of positive change around us.

As professional speakers are all about inspiring people into action, I posed this question to some of the top Singapore based global and local speakers who attended the Asia Professional Speakers Singapore (APSS) Annual Convention on 23rd April 2013. I would have loved to ask many more who attended the event, but I had limited time to pull this off in between the sessions.

After compiling the video, I realised that there is indeed much wisdom in ‘collective wisdom!’   Enjoy and be inspired!

And do leave a comment below if you wish to share how YOU inspire people to make positive change.  You never know whose life you may touch!
