Ep.10 Is consciousness the gateway to happiness? w/ my partner David Perroud
Show Notes

What is consciousness and why does it matter? Could it be a gateway to individual and collective happiness? What is success and what place do financial metrics occupy within that? What values should we espouse in our society, our companies and our own personal lives?

These are some of the questions I explore with my guest, my partner in love and life, David Perroud.

David holds a Masters of Business Administration from the Simon Business School in New York,  and he has spent a large part of his career as the co-founder and CEO of an international market research company. But while he was a successful businessman, he had a deep curiosity and interest in finding answers to what he perceives to be some of life’s biggest questions: What is the universe? Who are we? What is the purpose of our existence?

That took him on a journey across scientific fields such as cosmology, astrology, life sciences, neuroscience and quantum physics. A unifying theme, he learnt, was that of consciousness in which he became an expert and made a huge pivot from market research into becoming a full time author. He is the author of 4 novels for which he has received much acclaim across Francophone countries and from some of the biggest names in science, including Ervin Laszlo, twice nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize.
