Jumping Ship: From the world of corporate Australia to the heart of social investment by Michael Traill (Hardie Grant Publishing)
About the book
An ambitious, competitive kid from a country town, Michael Traill converted his education opportunities in the hallowed halls of Melbourne University's Trinity College and Harvard Business School into a highly paid and successful career at Macquarie Bank. But at the peak of his career, in his early forties, he decided to leave that behind. Reconnecting with the values of family and community that shaped his childhood, he founded a unique non-profit success story, and became a key architect of one of the biggest social enterprises in the world. Jumping Ship is a manifesto, built on the best of thinking and practice from the business and social purpose worlds for Capitalism 2.0 at a time where traditional business values are under increasing scrutiny.
