Absolutely phenomenal seeing Dr Jane Goodall speaking today. Twice.
she had a full house hanging on her every word. She has been sick since December with bronchitis and we weren't sure she would get through the first let alone the second talk with her voice starting to give way.
As we drove from @dubaifutureacademy
conference centre, we told her she could make the talk shorter, but she refused. She said no, these people paid and came to see me and hear me speak, and I have to honour that.
I cannot emphasise enough how big her heart is, how much she wants to give, and how much she actually does.
She met a man after her first talk who asked her where she is based, she simply replied "aeroplanes". She is literally travelling 300 days a year.
At the @elfdubai @difc
again, sold out, standing room only, with a room full of people from every walk of life, every cultural background, from 5 years to 85 years, the whole room was transfixed, hanging on her every word, taking in the visionary they were witnessing, but feeling the power of her words also energised everyone in the room. It's a moment that every single person in that room won't forget.
so many of you messaged me about this, telling me how much she means to you, and how inspired you areby her and her message. As Dr Jane says, every single person can do something to change the world. If you want to do your bit, head over to @janegoodallinst @rootsandshoots
