“People in business who don’t think they can do this, who don’t think they can contribute, they can absolutely pivot business skills, corporate skills, organizational leadership skills to rewilding and bring great success to it. Because in a way you’re often applying the same principles: good old-fashioned marketing, good old-fashioned communications, and it does work. It’s just a case of persisting really hard and fast at it.” ~Duncan Grossart
