Invisible Giants is about leadership, choices in life and the potential in everyone to make a difference. Lindsay Levin, who founded the social enterprise Leaders' Quest, tells the stories of the remarkable people she has met, and their impact on the world. They are individuals who have overcome a lack of education and resources to re-energise their communities, and business leaders who strive to integrate purpose alongside profit. They are female activists in slums campaigning to end the exclusion of girls from school, and environmentalists tackling the effects of industrialisation on the world's ecosystem. They are the people we meet every day, who are revisiting their life choices. It's also the story of Lindsay's own quest to ask: "what really matters?" and to figure out where the answers can take her.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Invisible Giants is a generous offering, deeply personal and beautifully written in clear, engaging prose. It demonstrates, rather than simply explains, why Leader's Quest has transformed the personal and work lives of the individuals who have joined these journeys. -- Tom Glocer, former CEO, Thompson Reuters
Every corporate leader who yearns to redefine the role of business-beyond-profit should read Invisible Giants. Lindsay's quest takes us to Indian slums and South African prisons, but most importantly on a transformative inner journey - one which starts with curiosity, grows into compassion and leads to courageous actions, changing the world one leader at a time. -- Virginie Helias, Global Director, Sustainability, Procter & Gamble
Many have written about leadership. Invisible Giants explores its moral meaning. How can we connect with what really matters and find an inner voice that changes the way we see our work? Lindsay Levin's organisation leads transformative personal experiences and she writes beautifully about success - and failure. She seeks inspiration from grassroots leaders, and takes people to worlds they never normally encounter. Seeing this awaken leadership potential is incredibly exciting. -- Koy Thomson, Chief Executive, Children in Crisis
Invisible Giants is an extraordinary, warts-and-all account of an evolving cultural revolution designed to jump leaders into 21st century realities. -- John Elkington, Executive Chairman, Volans Ventures; Co-founder of Environmental Data Services (ENDS) and SustainAbility
An important and enjoyable read for business leaders who want to better understand the complex relationships between people, culture, attitudes and opportunities that shape our world. Invisible Giants challenges us to think differently about business and the role of leaders. Reading it is, in itself, an inspiring journey, with wonderful stories of exceptional people beating the odds to accomplish extraordinary things. -- Bob Bechek, Worldwide Managing Director, Bain & Company
Invisible Giants is truly inspiring. Lindsay Levin's work takes her to places where committed people are transforming lives. It's not about privileged do-gooders who clamour for media attention, but about "karmayogis": people who bring about change in quiet and purposeful ways. It contains powerful lessons for everyone, including business leaders, who, says Lindsay, can learn to put social purpose at the heart of company identity. -- Anu Aga, Chairperson, Teach For India; Director, Thermax Limited; Member of Parliament, India
