i have seen more data on how masses of people ae bullied into lying to each other than any other westerner alive - unless you know better - rsvp chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk 

in earlier times,  founders of great ad agencies knew a lot more than me - eg rosser reeves david ogily leo burnett- i studied all of their lessons and though the 1990s developed a genre of what if the greatest brands -three types of governances nations corporates charities - were those that sustained youth not those that used education to destroy lives matter see eg triple issue of journal of marketing managmeent which i guest edited in 1999 and which followed up the 1984 book www.2025report.com which i co-authored with the economist's norman macrae - 

when i prese3nted my findings at my one and only visit to harvard, i was told- you may be right but nobody would get funding fir that in usa- go away this upset me in several ways-
i found this a disappointing appraisal-  partly because i worked for a partner of harvard/mit marketing leaders in the1980s collecting data on what societies wanted from the biggest branded corporations..
.
at the end of the 1980s, the harvard professor exited the global businees he had created  leaving our regional company in france to find what turned out to be the black knight robert maxwell who defrauded pensioners,  ruined market research transparency,  silioised academic journals and whose youngest daughter became epstein's main new york hostess

 i am seldom surprised by when the history of media's most powerful moguls -innovations shows the worlds most evil people often connect media-tech leaps  before the most loving- hitler only needed 2 years first comers advantage of being the only person with audio recordings- while he brainwashed people 24 hours a day before world war 2 with one taped speech british speaking allies including roosevelt and churchill could only make live radio broadcasts- one time instead of 365/24/7 in one sense fake media of 2010s is nowt new; in another sense the ways machine intel analyses bog data linked to media barons will destroy the human race unless we demand teachers and youth become literate and those olders controling pension and other funds come out to bat for youth and edutech

1972 saw birth of the most purposeful organisation of 10000 global corporations i have researched

 its founder fazle abed died dec 2019- here we continue discussions on who might want to linkin his relay -coalition of 50 universities that live up to fazle abeds belief in first sustainability generations' youth particularly women who hold up half the sky- if you can help chat with me at chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk or +1 240 316 8157


typical dialogue feb 2021

[7:05 AM, 2/10/2021] Chris Macrae: my favorite read in january - A Better Resolution For The New Year: Set Attainable Goals  ..Kim Starkey  writing in forbes 

Leadership Strategy

As the CEO of a grantmaking foundation that seeks to make a meaningful difference in the lives of the world’s poorest people by multiplying the impact of high-performing leaders, I have a strong professional interest in the science of setting and achieving goals. Indeed, it is a topic in which I have recently been immersed, in part through research that I have conducted with my colleague Maya DiRado Andrews, an Olympic gold medalist. It is also top-of-mind as our sector marks the one year anniversary of the death of Sir Fazle Hasan Abed, the founder of BRAC, who used rigorous goal setting to transform the organization he started into one of the largest, most effective nonprofits in the world.

While disciplined and effective goal setting is critical to our social sector even in “normal” times, it is especially critical during this extended pandemic period in which we face rapidly escalating needs; the necessity to reinvent delivery models; a challenging fundraising environment; and unprecedented levels of uncertainty. If ever there were a time to eschew overly-broad and open-ended ambitions like “end global poverty” in favor of realistic, measurable, and attainable goals that will truly help bring extreme poverty to an end, this is it. For guidance in so doing, I highly recommend the example of top athletes who daily push themselves to achieve more. Indeed, as my Olympian colleague and I have discovered, organizational leaders who excel at their jobs—including such high-performing social sector leaders as the late Sir Fazle—exhibit many of the same qualities that top athletes use to summon peak performance in their field.

[6:14 PM, 2/14/2021] Chris Macrae: the 20th annual report on social entrepreneurs by world economic forum had a special dedication to sir fazle abed; also i found that mit published a special davos issue inspired mainly by fazle abed back in 2008!- i have attached one page from a great fazle abed paper in this issue- if you would like pdfs of the whole issue or of 20th weforum report please say

[8:11 AM, 2/20/2021] Chris Macrae: i am not sure when annual report of brac 2019 was written but on page 15 learning partners mentioned are london school of economics and arizona state but as far as i can see no other academic institution- 2 questions come to mind - lse and arizona state are 2 institutions i study a lot- do you coordinate all connections or in the case of these 2 institutions who is the lead contact; the other question why these two?  http://www.brac.net/downloads/BRAC-AR-2019e.pdf - from the outside the world of connections fazle abed made is getting very hard to understand- if i make a list of say the 20 living leaders -soros, schwab, gates. tech connectors of bkash -let alone asians  etc - who still most continue what is uniquely urgent sdg 2020s of being aware of network …
