So you have a big, world-changing idea—great! But how can you actually make the change happen? Demonstrably, durably, and soon?
I started Change Agency Collective to put my decades of experience and particular set of skills for making things happen into service for what the world needs now: Removing obstacles and ensuring that the world’s most ambitious game-changers can accelerate their work to help create a thriving future faster. I help people with audacious globe-shifting ideas move them into clear visions and bold strategies with detailed plans for execution, amplification, and scaling. And do whatever it takes to get them there.
I’ve taken every opportunity to elevate and unleash bold changemakers in my 30+ year career in roles ranging from being executive vice president of a nonprofit with a billion-dollar endowment, studio president overseeing development and production for every platform from iPhone to IMAX, business leader responsible for a $50mm P&L and a triple bottom line, a chief program officer, a chief content officer, a brand manager, board director, turnaround specialist, grant maker, den mother for Explorers, storyteller, journalist, educator, comedy producer, and Emmy and Peabody award-winning filmmaker at organizations including Emerson Collective, the National Geographic Society, Discovery Communications, Shark Week, ABC News, CBS News, 60 Minutes, PBS, Frontline, Nightline, Girl Rising, and more.
My insight after decades of working with audacious people in all these roles is that changemakers are talent, no less creative than any other kind of artist, and just as responsive to specialized attention and encouragement—itʻs just that their canvas is the planet, their medium is change.
