Wouldn’t it be great, if when someone purchased a new plasma TV, someone without vision got the gift of sight?

Paul Dunn is a hugely respected and admired business leader, entrepreneur and master presenter. He’s a four-time TEDx speaker and frequently travels around the world, educating businesses about B1G1 and sharing inspiring business insights.

Paul is often referred to as a wise mentor and has helped countless individuals improve their business operations. He is an expert at building up those around him and celebrating every achievement, no matter how small. Paul is a member of one of the world’s leading think-tanks and was recently honored with a Lifetime Service Award to the Accounting Profession in the UK (though he’s definitely NOT an accountant!). More recently, he was named as a Social Innovation Fellow in his new home of Singapore - an honour he shares with film-star Jet Li and Walmart Chairman, Rob Walton.

His work as Chairman of the revolutionary B1G1 (Buy One Give One) has been featured in leading-edge publications such as Forbes, Fast Company, Trendwatching, Springwise and online through the key technology newsletter Mashable, as well as Voice of America. Already, B1G1 has created over 117 million giving impacts around the world by allowing businesses to enjoy real purpose and meaning through giving.


In this episode you’ll learn…

  • How the idea for B1G1 was born out of a mentoring session that Paul was delivering with Masami Sato
  • How every hour of the day there is a net gain of 87 new businesses being created in Australia alone - the Entrepreneur Movement is in full flow.
  • Why in this decade alone, entrepreneurs will create more wealth for themselves and for society than in the whole of the twentieth century
  • What definition that paul applies to a Social Entrepreneur, and why these are the big changemakers for good (rather than the governments) in the world today
  • The simple process for finding your ‘why’ that Paul learned from Simon Sinek, Author of ‘Start With Why’
  • The global movement of entrepreneurship in young people and the education system is beginning to change
  • Why studies show that 7 out of 10 people feel uneasy about the word ‘charity’ because they have had a bad experience



‘People should never doubt that tiny things can make amazing differences’
