I consciously walked on the edge in 2007 in the first EGI gathering in Palma de Mallorca, however, I believe that I had unconsciously started practicing walking on the edge since my teenage years. For me to be a conscious and pro-active member of EGI entails getting rid of the last century’s archaic mental “blackberry” chains and paradigms that pose the real barriers for today´s society to evolve into a self-sustaining, growing and more respectful Earth system. Walking on the edge is not about a destiny but about making sure oneself remains in the path. The EGI community helps to achieve this since it provides an intelligent eco-system where individuals can explore new conceptual and philosophic frameworks without the constant loneliness of currently feeling out-of-any-system. EGI has already started building its own evolutionary system.
Nowadays I define myself as a potential holistic change agent aiming to help others to become change agents under my main sketching hats: entrepreneur, advisor, coach, speaker and professor. I have founded or co-founded seven companies and one NGO. I am a strong believer that education needs to break paradigms and that new educational frameworks are required to evolve the world into the right direction. More and more my dedication is geared not only to senior leaders but also to potential ones, meaning our children.
My EGI project is a NGO oriented to delivering learning activities for different life-stages while helping others to achieve their own individual changes and transformations. I look forward to sharing this project with the EGI community to get support and engage fellow members of EGI who would love to help me to launch this initiative.
