Bill Drayton Speaks About Empathy, Collaborative Entrepreneurship and the Power of You

Bill Drayton

Eric Paglia, co-host of the Stockholm-based radio program Think Globally Radio, chatted with Ashoka's founder and CEO Bill Drayton at the Tällberg Forum in Sigtuna, Sweden last month.

The Tällberg Forum is an annual event that brings together innovators, visionaries, and leaders to answer the most pressing questions facing our rapidly restructuring world; this year, the Tällberg Forum asked: "How can we agree to agree?"

The 30-minute interview, presented in two parts in Think Globally's radio broadcast, is all about different perspectives on how to create change. Drayton and Paglia discuss Ashoka's mission, empathy, collaborative entrepreneurship (and what's required to make a coordinated global effort work), in addition to the solutions being employed by Drayton's other project, Get America Working!

The interview is worth a listen. To check it out, visit the Think Globally Radio website and follow the audio code "110911."
