Invisible Giants: changing the world one step at a time
A book by Lindsay Levin
Invisible Giants is about leadership, choices in life and the potential in
everyone to make a difference. Lindsay Levin, who founded the social
enterprise Leaders’ Quest in 2001, tells the stories of some of the remarkable
people she has met through her work, and their impact on the world.

They are individuals who have overcome a lack of education and resources to re-energise their
communities, and business leaders who strive to integrate purpose alongside profit. They are female
activists in slums campaigning to end the exclusion of girls from school, and environmentalists tackling
the effects of industrialisation on the world’s ecosystem. They are also the people we meet every day,
who are revisiting their life choices. Invisible giants are the figures who emerge, often against the odds,
to inspire confidence and invest energy in those around them.
This is also the story of Lindsay’s own quest to ask: “what really matters?” and to figure out where the
answers can take her.
Invisible Giants is an extraordinary account designed to jump leaders into 21st century realities.
John Elkington, author of « Cannibals with Forks »
Generous, deeply personal and beautifully written.
TomGlocer, former CEO, Thomson Reuters
An inspiring journey with wonderful stories of exceptional people beating the odds to accomplish
extraordinary things. It challenges us to think differently about the purpose of business and the role that
leaders should play in society.
Bob Bechek, Worldwide Managing Director, Bain & Company
It’s not about privileged do-gooders who clamour for media attention, but ‘karmayogis’: people who bring
about change in quiet and purposeful ways. Truly inspiring, with powerful lessons for everyone.
Anu Aga, Chairperson, Teach For India; Director, Thermax Limited
Lindsay’s quest takes us to Indian slums and South African prisons, but most importantly on a
transformative inner journey – one which starts with curiosity and leads to courageous actions, changing the
world one leader at a time.
Virginie Helias, Global Director, Sustainability, Procter & Gamble
Many have written about leadership. Invisible Giants explores its moral meaning. Lindsay seeks inspiration
from grassroots leaders, and takes people to worlds they never normally encounter.
Koy Thomson, Chief Executive, Children in Crisis
