Inspirational Leaders – Clare Woodcraft

Clare Woodcraft – CEO of Emirates Foundation talks with Veronica Munro of Leading Minds about the paradigm shift in philanthropy and the focus now on long term systemic ‘venture philanthropy’ that can, and does, change millions of people’s lives in a sustainable manner. She shares the importance of ‘engaging the ecosystem’, a mindset of ‘embedded sustainability’ and shares a quote from Jim Clifton’s new book ‘The Coming Jobs War’ on Innovation: ‘it’s a wonderful thing but it’s meaningless without enterprise’. In a world where jobs are not longer for life it is hugely important for young people to choose a job that excites them as well as have the technical skills to deliver.
