Casey Gerald unpacks the urgent need and opportunity for us to embrace a “new playbook for change,” challenging existing notions of entrepreneurship, unleashing the power of every individual to make a difference, and making business a true force for good in the world. As Gerald says: “It’s not the what or the how, but it’s the why, that is at the heart of creative entrepreneurs. It’s the why that sparks the revolution.”
