Isabelle Grosmaitre,
Founder, Goodness&Co

“We are thrilled to introduce Generation Glasgow, a collective of leaders who are bravely answering the urgent call to shift from purpose to practice. The time is now for business to be purposeful. Time is about action. We have a decade to be bold and reinvent the way we do business. But change is never easy. One thing is certain: there will be no transformation without courage. This collective is eager to tackle the HOW to make it happen at scale.”

Dimitri Caudrelier

CEO, Quantis

“After months of interviews with dozens of CEOs and ExCom members from some of the world’s biggest companies in the consumer goods and other industries, we have a clear understanding of the barriers they face in shifting to operate within planetary boundaries. I’m thrilled to launch Generation Glasgow, together with The Boson Project and Goodness&Co, a task force to help leaders tackle their most prevalent pain points in order to clear the path to their transformation. There is no time to waste and Generation Glasgow is ready to catalyze business transformation, hand in hand with the individuals that will lead boldly in these important years to come.”

Emmanuelle Duez
Founder, The Boson Project

“The concerned mind of the citizen can no longer leave the brain of the leader, the manager, the collaborator or the entrepreneur. Together, we connect the facets of our lives to become one: a human being who observes, seeks to understand, in order to build and to dream of a transformation that we all wish for and yet so complex to achieve. It is in this new relationship to work that lies a formidable lever of transition for our organizations.”
