Behind extraordinary ideas, there are extraordinary people.
Kaj Löfgren is the director of strategy at Small Giants, the Australian director of The School of Life, and a table-tennis enthusiast. At Small Giants, he helps to create, support, nurture and empower businesses that are positively impacting the world. Small Giants acts as a catalyst for change, using business as a meaningful tool to create the world we want to live in. And, they’re the awesome parent company of Dumbo Feather.
If I wasn’t already in awe at the lengthy list of Kaj’s good deeds, The School of Life definitely blew my mind. It is an after-hours school where adults can learn emotional intelligence. While at first I was thinking, Hang on, why would ANYONE want to revisit the days of greasy canteen food and trig homework, I soon became intrigued by the school, which runs classes on a range of things, like ‘How to stay calm’ and ‘How to face death’. All those things school never taught you, all those conversations about life you never had out loud.
