Ideas at Work: Nan Doyal

Author of Dig Where You Are: How One Person's Effort Can Save a Life, Empower a Community and Create Meaningful Change in the World


The Center for the Study of Liberty welcomed author and leader Nan Alexander

Doyal to Ideas at Work in June 2019. Her book, Dig Where You Are, profiles ordinary individuals who are making a big difference in their communities. 

Ms. Doyal spoke to us about the inspiration for the book, her experiences training global leaders at the International Forum, and what she learned from interacting with the people overseeing on-the-ground efforts to improve the lives of their neighbors.

We discussed the stories of people like Dr. Devi Shetty, whose ground-breaking work in providing affordable healthcare for India's poor highlight the potential we all have to use our skills to create change. Participants asked questions about the nature of charity, the concept of a "business with a social purpose," and how we can help people in our own communities.

Check out these highlights from the session, as Nan Doyal explains the meaning of "dig where you are" and what we can do to apply these principles in our lives and work.

Participant Feedback

"Nan Doyal was great. She is humble, and I'm not sure why that's such an important quality but it is. I think it helps listeners feel comfortable and close to her right off the bat.
