The rain came quickly and without warning. The umbrella was useless against the force of the downpour. The streets quickly flooded and cars sprayed the sidewalk with water. It took just minutes to be soaked from head to foot. I considered turning back to the hotel, but I was already half-way to the cinema and 300 people were waiting. My hosts at the Asian Development Bank were calling.
Our Global Chief Evangelist, Craig Leeson, recently sat down for a fireside chat with attendees of the Marketing Society’s Inspirational Evening – and event organized in Hong Kong on June 11.

Business class: that holy grail of long-distance flying. For most people like myself it’s a section of the plane you walk through whilst navigating to the tiny piece of real estate at the back of the plane that will deliver hours of torture into the foreseeable future.
But not this day, June 2. As I handed my boarding card at the gate, the machine went red, the flight attendant paused and then delivered words that seemed to project with the voice of an angel, a full symphony choir, and the sudden glare of spotlights: “You’ve been upgraded, sir.” Hallelujah.
On 11th January 2017, Barbados launched the inaugural Barbados Independent Film Festival where the screening of A Plastic Ocean was featured. Many other films were screened during this unique festival throughout the following week.

“What can I do?” – The question a lot of us ask when we learn about the plastic problem.
Sometimes it takes a small community far away to remind us of what we can realistically do to make a difference. After a screening of A Plastic Ocean, sponsored by Manan Trust and the Island Foundation, a local school in Singapore is making bold steps towards real change.
We are pleased to offer this brief interview with Craig Leeson, director of our award-winning documentary A Plastic Ocean. Craig is a fourth generation media professional, having worked in print, radio, television and film. He has produced award-winning results for such media outlets as CNN, National Geographic Channel and the BBC. He plays in a rock and roll band, surfs the waves of the world and is self-professed addict of macadamia nuts.
