Maggie De Pree
Co-founder, League of Intrapreneurs
If the League of Intrapreneurs gets its way, working the nine-to-five may never be the same again. “If we want a new economy that works for everyone, then let’s create it,” says the co-founder Maggie De Pree, getting to the heart of everything the organisation believes in.
The group is a global learning community for people who work inside existing organisations and want to solve some of society’s most pressing issues. From climate change to health, education to inequality, the League of Intrapreneurs champions people who want to make a major impact without leaving their day jobs behind.
Maggie says her motivation to launch the platform came from her love of testing the status quo and challenging assumptions about established norms and procedures.
Asked for her number one piece of business advice, she says, “Spend time discovering your authentic self and independent voice. Trust your intuition. When faced with a difficult decision – ask yourself, ‘What’s the story I want to tell my grandchildren when I’m 80?’”
