In milestone episode #50, I speak to Chris Kutarna, a two-time Governor General's Medallist, a Sauvé Fellow and Commonwealth Scholar, and a Fellow of the Oxford Martin School with a doctorate in politics from the University of Oxford.
A former consultant with the Boston Consulting Group, then entrepreneur, Chris lived in China for several years, speaks Mandarin, and remains a regular op-ed contributor to one of China's top-ranked news magazines. (He lived in Australia and New Zealand for several years, and still cannot surf.)
He is the co-author of the The Age of Discovery - Navigating the Risks and Rewards of Our Reneissance, which shows how we can draw courage and wisdom from the last Renaissance in order to fashion our own golden age out of this New Renaissance.
Whether we’re seized by Gutenberg or Zuckerberg; the discovery of the Americas or the rise of China; copperplate or silicon etching; —a Renaissance moment, we’re told, then and now, forces humanity to give its best just when the stakes are highest.
Age of Discovery navigates the crises of our time and helps us all define a legacy that the world will still celebrate half a millennium from now.
