Today I met with Sam Wells. Sam is the MBA Director at the Adelaide Uni and teaches the Sustainability course for MBA students.
A couple of my friends have completed his course and their reviews have been brilliant. It would have been great if I had a similar chance when I did my MBA.
Sam is a very approachable person with a down-to-earth attitude with a great passion for Sustainability and Base of the Pyramid ideas. John O’brien acted as the conduit to help me meet up with Sam.
He gave a long and detailed insight into one his pet projects, Just Peachy which is built on the ideas of creating capital (human, economics, social and environmental) or what he calls common-wealth through collaboration, community and capitalism principles.
I will write about Just Peachy more in the future.
Interestingly, he is the brother of Geoff Wells, a sustainability lecturer at UniSA and a good friend of mine. The world is a small place, especially in Adelaide!
