Hayley Morris - leading the charge in moving the investment world away from extraction and into their hearts
Show Notes

We need an economic system based on values and trust to see genuine change in this critical decade. This intuition led powerhouse is collaboratively leading the thinking for philanthropy  & impact investment to shift away from reductionist outcomes to  a 'relationship first' approach where she believes the place to begin is with inner work to determine  'who you are', 'what makes you brave' and 'where your voice strongest'
