About the speaker:

Zachary Towne-Smith

His Cum Laude B.A. from Harvard College led him to explore issues of privilege and work for justice from his hometown of Philadelphia to the Guatemala City garbage dump. This work has taken him throughout the Americas engaging diverse stakeholders in strategic planning through the development of creative and critical thinking in fields such as education, public health, business, creative industries, and entrepreneurship. He expresses his own creativity through music, photography, and capoeira bringing insights from these arts into his facilitation and mediation. In 2006 he co-founded the Guatemalan non-profit Imagitlán, and led the formation of the Kula Collective yoga teacher training school in 2015. He believes that interpersonal relationships and creativity are the keys to sustainable innovation, and brings a unique skill set to his work with individuals and groups in settings ranging from corporate board rooms to dirt-floored rural schools. His multi-cultural and multi-lingual fluency are valuable assets as groups develop and maintain creative environments of respect and trust.
