‘…everything we touched, we killed.’

From the blurb:

“When most well-intentioned aid workers hear of a problem they think they can fix, they go to work. This, Ernesto Sirolli suggests, is naïve. In this funny and impassioned talk, he proposes that the first step is to listen to the people you’re trying to help, and tap into their own entrepreneurial spirit.”

This doesn’t to do the talk justice. Take just under 20 minutes to experience a different world through the eyes of this passionate storyteller!

‘…but at least we fed the hippos!’ What has this to do with listening and quiet? Make the time to listen!
