In his speech on purpose, David Howitt discusses the concept of the hero's journey and how it provides a framework for repairing our world . The entrepreneur explains how each person has a purpose and that it's in honoring that calling that making the world a better place can happen.
He discusses a wrongly held conception in society that there are two paths: being a left-brained executive who is successful but without heart, or being a creative living with lots of purpose but without financial wealth. Howitt's speech on purpose theorizes that instead of choosing one or the other, true disruption and change occurs when people integrate the two. By combining the professional and poet side, we can repair the world. He lists Toms and Apple as examples of this.
