Bio: Philip Wollen OAM, Australian of the Year Vic, ex Vice-President of Citibank; Today a “Venture Capitalist for Good Causes”; supports 500 projects in 40+ countries. His “5 Fingers” cover Children, Animals, the Environment, the Terminally ill and Aspiring Youth. His “Kindness Sans Frontières” footprint crosses the borders of Nations, Religions, Politics and Ideologies. But it also crosses the Bloodiest Border of all. The “Border of Species”. He is also confrontational; putting himself in harm’s way against poachers, hunters, loggers, the meat lobby and cheaply bought politicians.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all events and lectures will be held online until it is safe for us to resume in-person gatherings.
