In this episode, David Ritter, CEO of Greenpeace Australia, takes us on his journey into the leadership of environmental activism. We explore the power of collaboration in driving impactful outcomes at scale,  the vital role of trust-building in creating lasting change, and the necessity of forging strategic partnerships with like minded collaborators to support a sustainable future.
