Marques D. Anderson is my guest on Episode 118 of Inside Ideas with Marc Buckley. Seeking to be globally impactful, Marques created the World Education Foundation in 2009. Through this mission, he has traveled to over 81 countries and developed on-site programs in 21 of those countries. During this time, Marques gained a plethora of knowledge and expertise at the nexus of indigenous wisdom, modern technology and future communities. After writing a PhD proposal in 2017 focused on Cyborg Anthropology, Marques accepted an invitation to participate in the Global Solutions Program hosted by Singularity University and NASA. He created Urban Matrix One which utilizes satellite technology, unique data sets and machine learning to provide actionable insights to climate challenges. With an RFID chip internally implanted, Marques is a cyborg with a deep passion for ancestral wisdom, recognizing intersectional patterns and creating personal and communal transformation in sync with natural systems .His expertise in these fields has led him to Co-Found Ism.earth with Adah Parris, where they are developing a Co-Lab/Venture Studio and several businesses around Artistic Expression, Emerging Technologies, Regenerative Futures and Rethinking Policy. First Pilot will be in the Tom Miner Basin summer of 2021. More broadly, Marques is a polymath, speaker, writer and entrepreneur currently mobilizing his experiences to help multiple businesses, industries, and communities re-imagine the future. He develops clear strategies and frameworks to solve complex challenges and articulates purpose driven solutions through keynotes and client sessions. After choosing to leave a career as an elite athlete in the NFL, Marques has inspired others to live their truth through the Power of the Pivot. Through his journey he has embodied resilience, focus sacrifice and discipline to become a leader in multiple fields.
