Andres Roberts shares his thoughts with Tabi Jayne on business, leadership and the importance of them being rooted in nature.

Andres discusses with Tabi the purpose of business, why we need to redefine our definition of progress and nature being at the core of business. He also explains why bio-leadership is needed in today’s world and how leaders can start getting their business connected to nature.

Andres is a guide, facilitator, and advisor dedicated to new kinds of progress, fit for a positive future for all. His work combines renewed ideas about leadership and change, reconnection to Nature, and the wisdom of ancient cultures to help more positive and more systemic change happen.

Additional Information

“If we think about business as a technology, with a very linear siloed purpose – i.e. profit and maximisation – that is to the exclusion of other aims. And when it becomes a global system, when it’s the whole of the world operating towards that single purpose of maximisation, then it’s to the detriment of wider measures of health and wellbeing and human progress.”Andres Roberts
