CompassionX: the bridge from cleverness to wisdom

As we seek durable solutions to some of the most pressing issues facing us all, how do we bridge the gap between cleverness and wisdom? In this wide ranging, powerful talk, Lindsay Levin suggests that compassion holds the key.

Lindsay spent the first fifteen years of her career building entrepreneurial companies. In 2001 she founded Leaders’ Quest as her ‘last start-up’. She has since worked to connect leaders from all disciplines and sectors, to explore solutions to some of the big issues in the world today. Currently, much of her time is spent working with corporate CEOs and their leadership teams on the role and purpose of business, company values and culture change. She is passionate about bridging divides – between cultures, perspectives and opposing voices. She also works extensively with leaders from non-profit institutions and NGOs and in 2004 founded the Leaders’ Quest Foundation to build leadership capacity in grassroots communities.

Between 2008 and 2012 Lindsay was Chair of the International Steering Committee of OneVoice, working to amplify the voices of Israelis and Palestinians committed to peaceful coexistence. Her first book, “Invisible Giants: changing the world one step at a time”, was published in March 2013.
