Advance Praise for Dig Where You Are

“Dig Where You Are casts an important framework for modern leadership and driving sustainable change — in any kind of organization. It’s an inspirational reminder of the power of purpose, conviction and customer focus.”

-RICH WILLIAMS, Chief Executive Officer, Groupon

Dig Where You Are brings to life seven individuals and the cutting edge philanthropy and social enterprise they bring to bear on a relentless societal need. None do what they do for the money, and none do it for fame; each are pulled forward by the stark need that they are uniquely qualified to fill. I urge you to read this book, then reflect on what gnarly unachievable need you are uniquely qualified to fill.”

-F.K. DAY, Founder and CEO, World Bicycle Relief and Executive Vice President, SRAM Corporation

“Nan Doyal’s book reminds us that we are not passive spectators of our own lives, our neighborhoods and communities.  Today, there is no corner of the world that is not confronted by a dizzying array of challenges, large and small.  Millions of thoughtful people wake up every morning caring about this, but finding themselves either frozen or overwhelmed. Dig Where You Are is a clarion call to action – to not waste a moment, to begin today.  While there can be no assured outcomes, there is most definitely the assurance of a richer life, filled with empowerment and purpose.”

-SWATI and RAMESH RAMANATHAN, Co-Founders, JANA Group-committed to fixing India’s cities

“Nan Doyal shows us the quiet power of community-based efforts to make things better, while persuading us that we can accomplish more than we think. What is most profound is that each of the protagonists in this book has succeeded because their motivation is first and foremost to fix a problem, and not advance their own interests. It is their courage to step forward and take personal responsibility for helping others that is so inspiring and makes the message of this book an important one for us to understand and embrace, especially now.”

-DANIELLE BRIAN, Executive Director, Project on Government Oversight (POGO)

“For more than a decade Nan Doyal helped leaders of global corporations learn from the experiences of others from different cultures and walks of life, in a unique and inspirational way. Now, as a writer she has made this opportunity available to many more.  In Dig Where You Are, she takes us to places and people we could never find or understand on our own.”

-JOHN ABRAHAMSON, Chairman, Lund University School of Economics and Management, and Managing Director, SEB
