At the next TSSS event on February 4th you will learn how two relentless visionaries made their dreams a reality.
Robert Shirkey, founder of Our Horizon, is an eco-visionary who saw gasoline pumps as an opportunity to change the conversation about how each of us contributes to climate change; “What if we added a message right on the gas pump like the way we do with cigarettes”?
Paul Klein, founder at Impakt is a social visionary who passionately chose to tackle the nagging social problem of youth homelessness and unemployment. In November 2015 Paul and his team at Impakt launched HireUp – the world’s first national job portal for youth who have experienced homelessness.

During the event we will explore some of the following:

- Whether they ever felt like it wasn’t going to happen and what kept them going
- What was the the key to their project’s success
Also joining us to launch his new book, “Can the World be Wrong?” will be Doug Miller, Founder of GlobeScan. The book lays out a compelling case for looking to long-term trends in global public opinion to help predict the future. It goes on to outline the future these trends suggest. Doug will be sharing insights from his book and signing copies for audience members.
“We are living in uncertain times. My radical proposition in the book is that when humans are involved and given voice, everything is possible, including achieving our highest aspirations and best intentions.”
