Tamsin Osmond | Applying Pressure
Last year, at the beginning of the summer, Tamsin borrowed her friend's edition of Heat (Monbiot). July was spent with climate science and frantically preparing Climate Camp campaigners. The end of the summer was Climate Camp - six days of sustainable living, workshops and skill-shares, two arrests and two acquittals. There are many forms of environmental action and there are many campaign targets. Since Tamsin's speedy introduction into grass-roots organisations, she has helped coordinate carnival marches, protest camps, locks/stick-on's, and banner-drops. Working with Plane Stupid she has brought the protest to a variety of sites: airports, corporate offices, high-street travel agents, the roofs of the Houses of Parliament. With the aim of involving more women in the environmental debate and to promote direct action as a legitimate and the most effective protest method. Tamsin is helping to coordinate a rally, which will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Suffragette's rush on Parliament. The event will be on Monday 13 October, in Parliament Square. Come along. — Recorded live at the global event in Cardigan, west Wales in 2008. Watch Tamsin's full talk here: www.thedolectures.com/talks/tamsin-osmond-applying-pressure

Rohan Anderson | Shit Food Equals Shit Health. And How I Used Food To Improve My Life
This is warts and all life-affirming story of an overweight man working in corporate soul-sapping jobs that one day just said ‘Enough’. Rohan, with his great sense of humour and a gutsy approach to life, tells us of his fight for the right to eat good healthy food. And to become a normal healthy Aussie bloke. And now that he has sorted himself out, he is turning his attention to the rest of Australia. His next mission is going to make Australia eat healthily. If anyone can do it, Rohan can. Rohan spent much of his childhood on a small farm near Jindivick in regional Victoria where he developed not only an affinity for nature but also a deep understanding of the role it plays in providing sustenance. He has taken these lessons into his adult life where he now grows, hunts, fishes, and forages in wild and urban surroundings – procuring the food to feed his family. He also documents his adventures on his hugely popular blog, Whole Larder Love, sharing his recipes, slow food philosophies and (sometimes contentious) views with thousands of readers every month. Describing himself not as a chef, but rather a family cook, Rohan is influenced by rustic, peasant-style cooking, with minimal fuss involved. You won’t find Anderson in supermarket aisles; instead, he is usually wandering around his back garden, heading for a river, and traipsing through the bush or local paddocks to find his tucker. — Recorded live at the global event in Cardigan, west Wales in 2014.

Sean Taylor | Turning Heritage On Its Head
Sean Taylor was born and bred in the Conwy Valley, around 10 miles from Penrhyn Quarry, then spent 22 years jumping out of planes and throwing himself down zip lines as a Royal Marines Commando. After years of leaping from aircraft, trekking through jungles and dropping into war zones, the time came for a change. When he retired from Britain’s armed forces in 2004, a desk job was never going to be a satisfactory substitute. So, Taylor decided to replicate the thrill-seeking aspects of his career in a safe and fun environment for everyone to enjoy – from the ages of three to 99. — Recorded live at the global event in Cardigan, west Wales in 2019.

This changed the course of her life and now at 24, Chido travels around Zimbabwe and the world teaching others to grow mushrooms and change their lives too.

She tended a field where she attempted to grow maize, sorghum and millet. But the crops always failed. At the age of 11, she found a way to grow edible mushrooms using the waste from these failed crops. This turned into an opportunity for the community.

She has used her idea to educate and help people throughout Africa and beyond. — Recorded live at the global event in Cardigan, west Wales in 2011.

David and Alison Lea-Wilson | Why We Should Value True Eccentricity
To be off centre is the meaning of eccentricity. David and Alison believe that the most interesting things happen around the edges. They tell how doing things off centre shaped their lives and their businesses. David Lea-Wilson is a Welsh Entrepreneur who used his love of living by the sea in Anglesey to start sea related businesses with friends or relatives. These have ranged from oyster growing, being a wholesale fishmonger, running a lobster hatchery and running Anglesey Sea Zoo for 23 years. The last decade has been focused on starting The Anglesey Sea Salt Company, Halen Môn, and turning it into a successful business. All these have been started with his wife, Alison. Alison Lea-Wilson moved to Wales aged 18 to attend Bangor University. She trained as a teacher but didn’t like the constraints so she chose self-employment enabling her to try out different roles as a fish merchant, aquarium owner, sea salt maker as well as bringing up three children. Her skills lie in making connections, establishing relationships and fierce attention to detail: the perfect foil to her husband who gets excited and does things at the slightest provocation. If she talks it will be to show that you don’t have to have big, unique ideas, just have the confidence to try things, work hard and be nice to people. — Recorded live at the global event in Cardigan, west Wales in 2011.

David Allen | The Mind Is For Having Ideas, Not Holding Them
Unlike a computer, we can not add more RAM to our brains. So we have to free up RAM so we can think more. David Allen gives us a system to set us free. David Allen’s book ‘Getting things done’, has sold 2 million copies all over the world. The premise of the book is simple enough. That a person needs to move tasks out of the mind by recording them externally. That way, the mind is freed from the job of remembering everything that needs to be done and can concentrate on actually performing those tasks. Unlike a computer, we can not add more ram to our brains. So we have to free up ram so we can think more. That’s why David’s book is so amazing. It gives you a system to take all that stuff and get off your head, so you can do more. Brilliant stuff. — Recorded live at the global event in Cardigan, west Wales in 2010.

Michael Townsend Williams | Inhale. Exhale. Why We All Need To Learn How To Do This Better
In the glittering heydays of 1980s advertising, Michael was in the thick of it; working at Saatchi’s and living the prolific adman lifestyle. High pressured deadlines, a pace as fast as lightning and alcohol. Lots and lots of alcohol. His journey - as Michael’s wife would call it - is from being off his head to on his head. From alcoholic to Yogi. Both life’s joys and heartbreaking tragedies would change the trajectory of Michael’s life. The birth of his son set him on track to what is now twenty years of sobriety and the untimely and sudden death of his brother would be a harsh dose of perspective that would see him follow his heart and leave the addicting excesses of the advertising world. Michael talks us through the years that would lead him to the creation of his wellbeing app, Breathe Sync, a technology that allows to you to align your breathing with the beat of your heart and, in turn, breathe away stress. A reflective and vulnerable talk, Michael’s story is an affirmation of the virtues of following your heart, being as well as doing and breathing yourself better. Michael Townsend Williams is a DOer who likes to be. Through his experiences of obsessive doing in advertising and obsessive being in yoga, he created an app where being and doing can come together. His app Breathe Sync brings your breathing into sync with your heart to reduce stress and improve focus. So whether you're a DOer who forgets to be or a being who forgets to DO, you can breathe yourself better. Michael is also the author of  'Do Breathe: Clear your head. Find focus. Get stuff done'. — Recorded live at the global event in Cardigan, west Wales in 2014.

Hunter Lee Soik | What If We Could Build A Database Of Dreams?
Hunter Lee Soik is founder and CEO of Shadow that is building the Wikipedia of dreams. Do the Japanese who sleep the least also dream the least? What does your dream mean? What is the global dream trend for 2014? If you walk 10,000 steps, will you have more positive dreams? If we eat chicken after 9 pm, will we have a certain type of dream? Hunter’s dream is to answer these questions by building the first global resource for dreams. Hunter doesn’t really believe in limits. Since he was a kid, he's always seen obstacles as opportunities: to make ourselves vulnerable, to learn about each other, to stretch way beyond our boundaries. Looking at life this way is generally exhilarating. But it can also be exhausting. So a year ago, when his work with the Watch the Throne tour wrapped up and he suddenly had some free time, Hunter did what most of us would do. He slept. And in that sleep, the deepest I had in a very long while, he dreamed of SHADOW. SHADOW is the world’s first alarm clock that helps people remember and record their dreams. It transcribes your dreams, pulls out the keywords, strips away any data that could identify you, and pushes it to a giant global data cloud—where other SHADOW users can see global dream patterns and find dreamers like them around the world. Why does he care so much about dreams? Because we sleep for a third of our lives, and we forget 95% of our dreams within five minutes of waking up. But some really pivotal things—laws of physics, technological advancements, classic works of literature—were born of dreams. We’re socialized to think of sleep as inactivity, but certain parts of our brain—the parts that handle things like problem-solving and memory—are most active while we’re sleeping. That’s a huge amount of potential we’re forgetting each morning. Like astronauts gazing back on Earth for the first time, SHADOW is a way to see the world from a different angle. It’s also a bit of a gamble. SHADOW wants to create a global dream community and assemble the world’s largest dream database. — Recorded live at the global event in Cardigan, west Wales in 2014.

He stepped down from The Village Bakery in 2002 to concentrate on teaching, writing and campaigning on food and health. He is chair of the Soil Association’s Processing Standards Committee.

Optimism, enthusiasm and charisma wrapped up in one beautiful being named Eduardo. Look up optimism in the dictionary and you will probably see the name, Eduardo Garcia. A mountain boy from Montana, Eduardo is a chef, outdoor fanatic and co-founder of the Montana Mex food company. He travelled the world extensively from 2001-2011 as a chef on superyachts where he cooked for royalty and the rich and famous.

He also started a film concept called ‘Active Ingredient’ which explores cooking food in the great outdoors, improvising with the environment at hand and aims to educate, inspire and blow the lid off the hardscrabble notion of ‘cooking outside’ using creative and gourmet techniques. His plans were on track, but in October 2011, while elk hunting in the Montana backcountry, Eduardo was electrocuted by an unmarked power source. Through unbelievable odds, he found help and was med jetted to Salt Lake City’s Burn ICU where he spent 50 days fighting for his life. With 21 surgeries to date and a few more to go, he is firmly back in the game, running his company, working on his show and pursuing his passion to lead a productive and healthy life.

Tamsin Carvan | Inviting Strangers To Your Table
Raised in the Blue Mountains outside Sydney, Tamsin was lucky enough to spend much of her childhood running wild in the bush and swimming in freezing water in valleys and canyons. After years of study in Continental Philosophy at the University of Queensland where she spent her time with the likes of Heidegger and Nietzsche, the questions only seemed more intense and unsure of what to do next. Tamsin moved to Canberra and started work at a social research agency doing policy and program evaluations for federal government departments. While challenging and interesting this was a very transient life that involved a lot of travel, and every time she ventured out to the far-flung regions, which she did quite often, Tamsin felt overwhelmed with homesickness for a farm, and a way of life, she didn't have. So in the end, she succumbed and bought one, a rundown, difficult, steep but fertile 113 acres on a windy hilltop in Poowong East. Although Tamsin had never done a day’s farming in her life, she learnt how much you can get done when you have no idea what is meant to be impossible. These days Tamsin runs a small business on the farm called Tamsin’s Table, and lives with her eight and a half-year-old daughter Martha and, after many years on her own, she shares her life with her companion Allan. — Recorded live at the global event in Victoria, Australia in 2015.
