Social entrepreneur Michael Trainer is considered a force when it comes to innovative initiatives. Tapping into the experience economy, his inaugural Global Citizen Festival (an event that people earn the right to attend by doing good deeds) has raised billions of dollars in new commitments for programs serving the world’s poorest people.

Trainer's latest endeavor, Peak Mind, has him partnering with some of the most notable thought leaders of our time, including Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra and the Dalai Lama, to name a few, all to help communities around the world reach their highest potential.

“At the end of the day, the road comes up to greet you,” Trainer says. “And when you make a big declarative commitment, it’s incredible the amount of people that will come out to support you.”

In this episode of Project Luminary with Kristen Aldridge, learn how a life-altering experience is inspiring Trainer to create impact from the inside out.
