    DescriptionInvisible Giants is about leadership, choices in life and the potential in everyone to make a difference. Lindsay Levin, who founded the social enterprise Leaders' Quest in 2001, tells the stories of some of the remarkable people she has met through her work, and their impact on the world. They are individuals who have overcome a lack of education and resources to re-energise their communities, and business leaders who strive to integrate purpose alongside profit. They are female activists in slums campaigning to end the exclusion of girls from school, and environmentalists who are tackling the effects of industrialisation on the world's ecosystem. They are also the people we meet every day, who are revisiting their life choices. Invisible giants are the figures who emerge, often against the odds, to inspire confidence and invest energy in those around them. This is also the story of Lindsay's own quest to ask: "what really matters?" and to figure out where the answers can take her.
