Tim Hodgson is co-head of the Thinking Ahead Institute at Willis Towers Watson. He previously worked as an investment consultant. Our wide ranging conversation covers the genesis of the Thinking Ahead institute and what prompted the desire to gather industry thought leaders together to work on the most pressing issues facing not only the industry but the planet.Tim’s own career has had many twists and turns and we spend some time on how he learned to think in exponential terms instead of strictly linearly. We translate this thinking into what the outlook for the planet is and Tim is surprisingly sanguine about what progress we will make and the change that we will see in 5 years. This podcast discusses similar themes to those discussed in Episode 72 with Tim’s colleague, Marisa Hall co-head of the Thinking Ahead institute.
