Ep:#27 Alex Garden and the solution to a plastic free world

What does it mean to make a contribution as an executive and a leader?

At what point in your career do the skills you’ve accumulated need to be leveraged for the wellbeing of the people around you?

Today I speak with Alex Garden. Alex is a dear friend of mine, an extremely successful entrepreneur, executive, inventor and scientist.

And these were the questions he started to ask himself, which lead him to his current role as Chairman and CEO of Zume Inc, which is on a quest to be the most powerful source of health and well-being on the planet.

In this episode, Alex talks about the simple exercise that his friend David Krane of Google Ventures asked him to do. This exercise, as Alex says, was by far the most powerful thing he’s ever done.

And was the catalyst to this next chapter.

We talk about food. The solution to eliminating plastic. And how Alex and Zume Inc are leading that charge for change.

You’ll learn some scary stats in this episode, but you’ll also be left feeling excited and hopeful for the future. Alex will leave you inspired, and reflecting on your own potential for creating real impact.

I’m so excited to share this information with you all.

So sit back. Relax. And grab that favourite beverage. Or throw on those running shoes. And enjoy this glimpse into the future.
