Jack Butler interviews Stephen Dinan on creating a world which works for all

I recently saw an interview by Brian Rose, founder of London Real, of Peter Sage, the motivational speaker and entrepreneur, whom I had met way back when in my early London days.  I am grateful to Peter for first putting the ‘4 Kingdoms of Consciousness’ model on my radar.  More on that in another blogpost.
