Play • 1 hr 1 min

Welcome! This is the first official episode of the Overview Effect Podcast with James Perrin.

If you haven't already, please go back and listen to the 8 minute introduction (Episode 0), which will give you the background and context to the show.

This episode's guest is Mara Bún. Mara has spent her career working with and advocating for environmental causes and charities. She's previously been the CFO of Greenpeace Australia, Director of Business Development at CSIRO, and CEO of Green Cross Australia.

She is currently the first female President of the Australian Conservation Foundation (ACF), which is an organisation very close to my heart.

She also sits on the boards of Australian Ethical Investments and Enova Community Energy, both highly respected and hugely impactful companies.

So yeah... she knows a thing or two about good business and environmentalism.

Mara graciously invited me into her home in the Gold Coast hinterland where we discussed her influences to get to where she is in life, and her outlook on the world.

I think you'll find Mara's enthusiasm, hope, and optimism for the future to be a breath of fresh air, and my hope is that this conversation will leave you buzzing with excitement and opportunity.
