Portraits are conversations with people whose insights ignite in us a sense of wonder, purpose and courage. In speaking to them we stay around elements of living that we all experience independently of our professions and backgrounds, such as what moves them in life and work, how they deal with obstacles, what they find important to surround themselves with, how they live and how they grow. It starts as a simple talk and becomes a little master class in living.
