Our latest guest is Selby Cary.
Selby is the co-founder of Helping Hands Promotions, a promotional marketing business that puts social and environmental responsibilities first. They provide local cafes, coffee shops and retailers with free, branded, decompostable, hot beverage cups and donate a portion of their profits towards helping homeless people.
Selby won the Edinbugh Apprentice earlier in the year and his mission is to create a new social movement that sees all profitable organisations creating shared value and helping those around them.
We go deep into Selby’s early life and growing up in Africa, homelessness and the Helping Hands mission, travelling and Selby’s philosophical thoughts.
